Kingsland Schools receive petition, sets community meeting


Fri, Feb 21st, 2014
Posted in Spring Valley Education

With a petition in hand, Lynn Kidd, of Wykoff, Minn. addressed the Kingsland School Board and announced, “I have 230 signatures from people who walked into my office to sign this petition to recall the motion that was made to close the middle school,” he said, and added, “I like you folks, but we all have our own jobs to do” went on to request that the school board consider getting the needed work done on the middle school in Wykoff so the facility can be used to its fullest potential.

Lynn Kidd and Jeff Erding brought the petition to the school board “as representatives of several hundred district residents,” stated Erding. Erding also expressed to the Fillmore County Journal that the signatures on the petition were from a lot of Spring Valley residents as well as those from Wykoff.

The school board recognized Kidd’s comments and then moved on to other agenda items. Toward the end of the meeting during the Facilities Discussion, board member Gwen Howard recommend that “the board formulate a new facilities committee to incorporate community members and get their input and their ideas and suggestions”, saying they could start back over “at ground zero,” she said. Howard stated they could “facilitate more communication between community members and the board and the school as to what our real needs are” and also the plan they have so far.

Howard stated she had “suggested from the start that community members be involved but that didn’t come about in the facilities committee,” she said. Gwen Howard stated “Between emails and comments in the papers, I would be uncomfortable with going forth with the facilities committee that we have.” Doug Plaehn responded, “I don’t think there is wide support on the board for any referendum currently,” adding, “If we were to call today for a vote for a referendum, I don’t think it would pass.”

“The board right now is not committed to a referendum,” said Plaehn. Kristin Beck stated she would like to see some community meetings “so the community knows the challenges we are facing because we have no room in our elementary school and I don’t think they quite understand,” saying that for the most part people don’t come to their meetings and “we can’t count on everything being in the paper and I don’t think they understand the challenges we are facing.”

Doug Plaehn then stated, “It’s cle .....
