Kingsland Schools hear concerns, transfers property


Fri, Nov 22nd, 2013
Posted in Wykoff Education

The Kingsland School Board met on Monday, November 18, 2013 at 6:30 p.m. in the Kingsland Conference Room. All school board members were present in addition to Superintendent McDonald.

Consent agenda items approved included the board agenda, minute review of the October 21, 2013 meeting, additional authorized signature for Theresa Zwart, contracts, policy review and policy adoption.

In Public Thank You and Recognition a thank you was given to Brett Oeltjen for a donation of gutters for the FFA greenhouse. A thank you was also given to the high school students for a donation of mums for the front flower garden. Superintendent McDonald recognized the volunteers who helped with the Vision and Hearing re-screening and thanked them for volunteering their time.

In Public Comments Lynn Kidd, of Wykoff, Minn. expressed to the school board that he is upset about the consideration of closing the school in Wykoff. Kidd stated that the City of Wykoff had been promised years ago that the school would not be closed. In Kidd’s estimation Wykoff’s participation financially to the school district last year totaled $877,800 and he feels it would be easier and more cost effective to spend thousands on the Wykoff school instead of millions on the Spring Valley school. Kidd had additional ideas on how to utilize the space in the Wykoff school building which would free up space at the Spring Valley school building.

Representatives for the FFA reported on their corn drive which raised $2,200. Six members traveled to Louisville, Ky. from October 28-November 1, 2013 for the national convention. A new project is the Ag Literacy Project. Seven members will go to Good Earth Village in Spring Valley from December 6-8, 2013.

The drama club being in its first year has been busy with officer meetings. There are nine official members in the drama club with others planning to officially join the club soon. The drama club’s first activity was an open house attended by approximately 20 students. The next activity will be tip night at the Pizza Place on November 26, 2013. Practice for the one act play has begun.
