Lanesboro School Board updated on laptop program


Fri, Aug 23rd, 2013
Posted in Lanesboro Education

By Jade Sexton

Lanesboro High School Principal Brett Clarke updated the school board on the one-to-one netbook program that was started at the high school this past school year. As they prepare for a new school year, Clarke said they will be installing new software. The school was using a free version this past year, but there is a demand for the paid full version.

The laptops that were used by last year’s seniors will be used again this year, as they are only a year old. Clarke said there were a few accidents with the laptops last year, but they were able to get things fixed, and the kids enjoyed using them.

The board approved the school handbook for 2013-2014 as presented by Clarke, with very few changes. Board member Dave Lawstuen asked about the cell phone policy and how it has worked out. Clarke said as long as they are not competing with the educational environment they are allowed, and things have worked out well. After the first offense, the phone will be taken from a student and returned at the end of the day. Clarke said nobody has ever gone past that first offense.

Fall Coaches

The contracts for fall coaches were approved. The head coach for football will be James Semmen, with Ethan Simonson, Cody Hungerholt, and Kelly McMillian for assistant coaches.

Ellen Cullen is coaching Cross Country, which has combined once again with Fillmore Central, and has 21 students participating.

The volleyball coaches are Chris Knutson, Darla Taylor, Dave Rogers, and Lena Bergo.

Other Business

The Truth and Taxation hearing will be held at the beginning of the regular school board meeting on December 19.

Superintendent Jeff Boggs said the Randolf School District will be joining the sports conference. He said many schools are losing people and having to combine with other conferences.

A staff workshop lunch will be held on Tuesday, August 27.
