Kingsland School Board: Building project on schedule

Posted in Education

The Kingsland School Board met on Monday night June 18, and took action on a number of issues. Board members got an update on the building project and were told that for the most part the schedule is right on track. Starting in July, the contractor will appear before the board and present an update on the construction details. In the meantime, board members are attending the construction meetings on Wednesday afternoons.

The preliminary budget of $5,717,058 was presented and the board was told that negotiations will probably impact the final numbers along with the beginning of the school year when staff will have an actual number of student enrollment.

The issuance of Aid Anticipation Certificates will be handled by Northland Securities. The District had previously used Springsted Consultants to negotiate the student aid from the state, but now it is hoped with Northland Securities handling that process, a savings of $1,400.00 can be realized.

A yearly event is a call for milk, bread, gas and fuel bids. This year the board will look at the bids at the July meeting.

Several resignations were approved by the board: Becky Lulai, Speech Pathologist; Steve Erickson, Science Teacher; Ron Neis, Van Driver; and Bonnie Termaat, Cook

The new hires are: Football Coaching Staff: Wally Beevers, Trent Langemo, John Jones, Aaron Janssen, Al Williams, Justin Thomas and Tim O'Connell. Cross Country Coaching Staff: Brian Hoff and a possible assistant, if needed. Nancy Miller, School Social Worker, Richard Drong, School Social Worker, Matthew Kevan, Deaf and Hard of Hearing, Randy Eckerson, School Psychologist and Penny Parch as a cook.

This was the final board meeting for Interim Superintendent Larry Tompkins. He told the board that it has been a privilege to work with them and knows that Kingsland will be moving in a positive direction in the future. All members of the School Board agreed and thanked Larry for his time and efforts in the district.

The next meeting will be July 16.
