The Kingsland (Spring Valley) school board met on December 15. Members Kristin Beck, Gwen Howard, Steve Tart, Deb Larson, Doug Plaehn, and Superintendent John McDonald were present. The meeting started with a Truth in Taxation hearing at 6:15 p.m. Todd Lechtenberg shared levy and budgetary information, including the budgeted revenues for the 2014-2015 school year, which are set at $8,077,966, which is a 3.12% increase from the previous year. Lechtenberg explained this increase is due to the change to “all day, every day” kindergarten. He also explained that 68% of the budgeted spending goes to Instruction, and he said that’s about what it should be. The proposed levy totals $1,930,006.35, which is an increase of about $17,600 from last year, or an increase of just under 1%. The board unanimously voted to approve the levy.

The regular meeting was opened next, and the board approved minutes and consent agenda items. Superintendent McDonald then gave public thanks and recognition to FRC/Boston Scientific for a $5000 registration fee grant for First Robotics; Essig Agency for holiday meat & cheese for staff; Melissa Schmidt for singing for preschool and kindergarten students; Brenda Musel for donating 15 pies for the elementary and middle schools; Al Williams for $1894 donation to purchase 48 practice jerseys for junior high basketball; and congratulations on the birth of Henry Hanson Priebe.

No public comments were presented. Two students reported on FFA events, including their recent corn drive and fruit sales. In the Spotlight on Education report, Jeff Ubinger and a student (George) shared a project in which George created a cell phone application for ordering and randomizing the creation of burritos.

Principal Hecimovich reported recent and upcoming testing and assessments for students, including the Armed Services Vocational Aptitude Battery (ASVAB), and he stated, “This year we have a huge number of kids interested in the military. We have seven or eight that have already enlisted in the Army Reserve/National Guard. We have a couple that are looking at the Air Force or Coast Guard. I think a lot of kids are looking at the cost of college, and the benefits of serving in the military.”

Principal Priebe is on leave, but submitted a written report. Athletic director Steve Hauser reported on winter athletics, and said the new M24 Monster Rig equipment for the weight room will be installed over .....
