Lanesboro School Board hears about Texas/Mexico trip

Lanesboro School Board members called to order their regular monthly meeting on February 21 at 5:30 P.M., a change from the regular schedule to accommodate the girls basketball tournament game with Rushford-Peterson. In addition to regular business of approving the January minutes and the typical assessment of the district’s finances, board members also had some unique items on the agenda.

On the agenda, board members approved the staff seniority list, which is done annually. Superintendent Jeff Boggs explained how, in recent years, changes to the way the list was composed have encouraged staff to continue their education to high levels such as a master’s degree. Although negotiations occur, steps on a scale of one to fifteen are utilized to determine a teacher’s salary. Higher steps can be attained with a higher educational degree. Besides a focus on the pay scale, board clerk Steve Snyder pointed out the importance that a well-educated staff can offer students, which is a high-quality education.

In other business Superintendent Boggs read a resignation letter from high school choral instructor Robin Scheu. Scheu has been part of the Lanesboro School district for the past five years after she arrived in the fall of 2008. She has taught senior high choir and elementary music classes. She will be moving to Madison, Wisconsin with her fiancée this summer. The board unanimously approved her resignation and expressed their gratitude for what she has brought to the Lanesboro School system and the students she has taught throughout her tenure.

Finally, before concluding, second grade teacher and Texas/Mexico trip adviser Dave Rogers delivered a presentation on the 2012 trip that took place over Christmas Break in December. Complete with pictures and captions, Rogers walked all in attendance at the meeting through each stage of the trip, through the educational, fun, and emotional moments. Lanesboro’s Texas/Mexico trip takes place every two years and all sophomores and juniors are eligible to participate.
