What qualifies for Health and Safety Program Revenue?

Posted in Education

During the Lanesboro School Board meeting on June 17, there was some discussion about an application for Health and Safety Program Revenue. Superintendent Jeff Boggs explained that this application used to be called Attachment #99. The board approved having the administration go forward and seek out money for items that qualify for Health and Safety funds.

Boggs said there are certain things that can be covered by Health and Safety. When they replaced the lights in the gym, it was paid for with Health and Safety money. They have also used that money for smoke detectors. Board member Sara Decker asked if they always cover the same things, or if it changes.

Boggs replied that it is, at times, a "moving target." He thinks that lights might not qualify for Health and Safety in the near future.

Boggs also said the fire marshal was at the school and found only a few minor things the school needs to update, including the emergency plan. "It's the shortest list we've ever had," said Boggs.

Math Teacher and Curriculum

The board approved a contract with a new math teacher, Jeff Debuhr. Boggs explained that Debuhr will be moving here from Colorado, where he has nine years teaching and coaching experience. He is originally from Waukon, Iowa. Boggs said they are still looking at the schedule for next year, but it is possible they may be able to offer calculus to the seniors.

Resident Sally Ming mentioned that at the last meeting, Boggs said Mr. Clark would be at this meeting to talk about the math curriculum for next year. Boggs said he would have him come to the next meeting, or else Ming could stop in and visit with him at any time.

Boggs said they are working on getting Algebra 1 for eighth graders next year. They are trying to get more advance classes for younger students that want it, so they are able to take calculus when they are seniors.

Sports Recognition

Boggs said he would like to recognize and congratulate the Lanesboro/Fillmore Central golf and track and field teams and their accomplishments this season. "We had a very good year again," said Boggs. He added that one track student, Jordan Jarland, went on to state, where he placed first in hurdles and the long jump.

Other Business

The board approved the resignation of Chris Knutson as the Junior Class Advisor. Boggs said she has been the advisor for sixteen years, and has done a great job.

The board approved having the administration seek out bids for milk and bread for the next school year.

The board also approved using the template from the 2010 budget as a preliminary budget for 2011. Boggs said they do this every year.
