The Lanesboro School Board met on July 15, and discussed options for creating a family season pass for athletic events.
Superintendent Jeff Boggs said the individual ticket prices are $5 for adults and $3 for children. He said even with the individual season passes, it can get expensive for larger families.
"It would be nice to give families with four or five children a little break," said Boggs. "We have been talking about this for a few years now."
Boggs added that he has been kicking around some ideas on how this would work best, and thought that maybe they could do a discount on any children after three.
"The number of families affected by this would not be huge," commented board member Dave Lawstuen. "It would not be a big financial impact to the school. I think it's a good idea."
The board approved allowing Boggs to come up with a price and regulations for the family season pass.
The board approved the resignation of board member Linda Sifford, with much appreciation for her many years of service to the district. Boggs explained that Sifford is taking advantage of an opportunity to further her education and would not be able to continue on the school board.
Boggs said they do not need to have a special election for the position, but they can appoint someone. He said the usual way they fill an open board position is to ask a former board member who has retired if they would fill the spot for the rest of the term. A few board members volunteered to make some phone calls. If none of them can do it, they will take names from the general public and make an appointment at the next meeting.
Sally Ming, a Lanesboro resident, said she would like to be considered for the position if none of the former members would like to do it.
There were two new teacher contracts approved at the meeting. Ethan Simonson was hired for the full-time Social Studies position. He has two years previous experience, and originally comes from Austin.
The board also approved the hire of Tori Johnson for a teacher at the daycare. Boggs said she had worked as a paraprofessional in the district before.
The board approved the contracts of the two principals and the Dean of Students.
Boggs reminded the board members that the time to file for candidacy for school board is going to be August 3-17.
The board approved increasing the substitute teacher pay from $100 a day plus mileage to $105 a day plus mileage. Boggs said most of the schools in the area are at $100 a day, and although this isn't a huge amount of money, it might encourage subs to come to Lanesboro.
The board approved the bids for bread from Sara Lee and milk from Ziebell's. Boggs said they did not get any bids from other businesses. The prices from Ziebell's had increased some, but the prices at Sara Lee had decreased.
The board approved leaving the lunch prices the same as they were last year.
