Lanesboro School receives 15 small engines


Fri, Jun 27th, 2014
Posted in Lanesboro Education

At the regular school board meeting on June 19, Superintendent Jeff Boggs told the board members about an Ag training that Kristi Ruen had recently attended at Alexandria Tech School. The training cost the district $350, but she brought back 15 brand new small engines.

Boggs said the engines are worth $7,500 and were donated to the school by Briggs and Stratton.

“They want to encourage schools to be exposed to this stuff,” said Boggs. He said it was an investment for them, as students who learn how to work on small engines will someday be in the work field and may be looking for a job in that field.

“The kids have really nice engines to work on,” he said.

Referendum

Boggs brought up the idea of an operating referendum. Lanesboro School does not currently have a referendum, but the board has the ability to approve a $424 per pupil unit referendum without voter approval, and the state would match $300.

He said they could think about a $424 referendum with the state’s $300 on top of that, and reduce the budget in other areas. This way there will be no additional cost to taxpayers.

Boggs will have more information to present at the July meeting.

Personnel

The non-certified contracts were approved. These include paraprofessionals, kitchen staff, custodians, daycare staff, and bus drivers. The administrative contracts were also approved.

The board accepted a resignation from Kristi Ruen for her position in ECFE (Early Childhood Family Education). They also approved a resignation from Kami Highum in the kitchen and Lisa Chiglo from concessions.

Health and Safety

The board approved the Health and Safety policy, with no changes from last year. Boggs said the school was asked by the state to approve the policy every year and have it on the board agenda.

The Health and Safety budget was also approved. Boggs explained the state required elevator inspections. The cost to have them inspected once per month is $3,400 per year, which Boggs said is less money than they were paying with a previous company.

They also have to pay for Health and Safety management. The management company goes through the paperwork and makes sure everything is in line with laws and regulations. Boggs said it serves its purpose at $4,300 a year.
