Mon, May 23rd, 2016
Posted in Wykoff Education

The Kingsland School Board met on May 16 in regular session, with approximately 40 people in attendance. Board members present were Doug Plaehn, Deb Larson, Kristin Beck, Gwen Howard and Ann Oeltjen, along with Superintendent John McDonald. Troy Asher was absent. The board approved the consent agenda items, including first and second readings of several policies. Next, Superintendent McDonald gave public thanks to volunteer coaches in the soccer program (Amy White, Mike Rainey, Doug Suave, Matt Jordan, Karen Stephans, Jennifer Ferguson, Cody Stewart, and Brinjil Hyde). He also thanked the Spring Valley Sportsman’s Club for a $100 donation to the trap team.

In the Public Comments section, the board heard from several people who spoke in support of John Fenske, asking the board to keep him in his current coaching positions (boys basketball and girls softball). John Fenske also spoke on his own behalf, thanking those who supported him, and telling of some of the successes his teams and student-athletes have enjoyed.

Gretchen Corson gave an update on recent and upcoming news with the FFA chapter, and the board heard updates on Technovation and high school academic programs. Principal James Hecimovich, Athletic Director Steve Hauser, and Building & Grounds Director John Dols each submitted written reports for their areas. Business Manager Todd Lechtenberg spoke to the board about current budgetary status, and also explained he is not yet ready to ask the board for approval of the next school year’s budget, but will bring that to the June meeting.

Principal James Hecimovich updated the board on Project Lead The Way (PLTW) as well as sharing information about College In Schools (CIS). He pointed out that currently, 46 of 89 juniors and seniors are in CIS at Kingsland, meaning that 52% of students are using it. Two parents and four current or former students also spoke in support of CIS, sharing details of how it benefitted them and saved their families money.

Gwen Howard reported on the recent meeting of the Finance/Facilities/Personnel Committee, stating, “On the personnel side, there was discussion on winter coaching staff. The committee would like to recommend moving forward with all the winter coaches, minus the varsity boys basketball head coach. Mr Dols and Mr Hauser will be gathering more information on that position to give to the committee at the next meeting.”
