Lanesboro Schools to purchase woodshop equipment


Fri, Jun 28th, 2013
Posted in Lanesboro Education

The Fire Marshall has ordered that Lanesboro Schools install a dust collection system for the woodshop. They currently do not have one, and never have in the past. The preliminary estimates for the purchase come in at $50,000.

The school board discussed ways to finance the purchase, including possibly splitting the cost over two years. Superintendent Jeff Boggs said the purchase will come from the Health and Safety budget, but will affect the levy and cost the district.

State legislation has passed that allows school boards to approve an operating referendum of $300 per student without voter approval. The state will also match $212 per student if the school chooses to do this. If the board approves the referendum, the district can get an additional $45,000 from the state this year.

Boggs said the district doesn’t really need a referendum at this time, but they would really like to get the money from the state. If they decide to pass it, the levy will be decreased in another area to make up for it, so it will not be any additional cost to taxpayers.

There was discussion by the board, but no decision was made. It will be discussed further at the July meeting.

Other Business

Three staff resignations were approved by the board. Tim Willette resigned from his Ag teaching position, and Shannon Ehler and Heidi Johnson resigned from their shared position of cheerleading coach.

The board recognized Johanna Bearson for placing 12th in State Golf, and Olivia Haug for going to State in Track.

The district will be advertising for milk bids.

The board approved a joint agreement with Fillmore Central for Cross Country.

The board also re-approved the Health and Safety Policy at the request of the state with no changes.
