Lanesboro School Board approves revised school calendar


Fri, Apr 26th, 2013
Posted in Lanesboro Education

By Jade Sexton

The 2013-2014 calendar was approved by the Lanesboro School Board during the March meeting. At the April meeting, Principal James Semmen approached the board with a few changes.

He explained there were some SEMLAC (Southeast Minnesota Learner Achievement Collaborative) meeting dates that changed, and the September 23rd meeting was changed to October 21. He changed a few other non-student days around due to MCA testing. There was discussion about the last day of school being a half-day on a Monday.

Board member Steve Snyder suggested they take away a vacation day earlier in the year and have school be done at the end of May. He asked about President’s Day, and Superintendent Jeff Boggs said they have to take that day off. There was discussion about the Monday after Easter.

Snyder felt it was better to have more student days before the MCA testing than after.

The board approved the end of the school year on June 2, 2014, with graduation being June 1.

Ag program

Boggs explained there are fewer students and smaller classes in the school’s agriculture program and a full-time teacher will no longer be needed. The teacher will work half-time during the school day but will still have FFA.

Board member Christine Troendle commented that this should not reflect that the school does not support the ag program. She said they should look at it as an opportunity to look at other classes, what is being offered, and see what the school really needs.

Band and Choir

The board officially acknowledged the accomplishments of the band and choir. Boggs informed the board that at the large group contests, the choir received two excellent ratings, and one superior. The band received all good ratings, but he noted they had moved up to category one, which is the toughest category.

“The instructors are great at pushing the kids further by having them play a tougher piece. The kids did an excellent job,” said Boggs.

Audit Quote

Pam Ristau, who has done the audit for Lanesboro Schools for several years, gave a quote for this year for $7,650, which was approved by the board. Boggs explained the amount was up slightly from last year, because there is an extra form due to state regulations. He noted they have been very happy with her work in the past.
