Lanesboro Board discusses search for new superintendent

Posted in Lanesboro Education

The Lanesboro School Board met on April 21 at 7 p.m. All board members were present.

The treasurer’s report was read by Lolly Melander and approved, along with the district bills.

Three years ago, the board cut back the ag program on the recommendation of Superintendent Boggs. As the number of students participating in the program have increased, Boggs has been reviewing it again and would like to make some changes to the program. He is also looking at the possibility of adding a class next year, but has no specific plans yet. The board passed a motion to discuss the matter further and increase the position beyond a .5 FTE with flexible options.

Dean of Students John Smith had taken a one year leave of absence over the 2015-16 school year and has now announced that he will be resigning rather than coming back. He thanked the board and district for the opportunity to work at the Lanesboro Public School. The board expressed their appreciation of his years of working with Lanesboro and noted that he will be missed.

The board discussed the search for a new superintendent. It was decided to hold the first round of interviews on-site in the elementary library, which they felt was appropriate since the candidates will given a tour of the school. The second round of interviews will be held in an undecided location off-site so the candidates can also tour the town of Lanesboro. The interview committee will consist of the school board, two teacher representatives, and the school’s officer manager. Boggs offered to answer any questions about the position that the candidates might have after their interviews.

The awards banquet will be held on May 1 at 6 p.m. Former Lanesboro graduate, Katie Halvorson will be speaking at the banquet, making this the twentieth year in a row that a former graduate has spoken at the banquet.

The board meeting was adjourned and an open meeting to discuss the interview questions for the superintendent position was opened. The board reviewed the questions submitted by the Minnesota School Board Association and HVED and discussed ways to tailor the questions to the Lanesboro district.

The next board meeting will be held on May 19 at 7 p.m.
