In record time, less than fifteen minutes, the Lanesboro School Board completed the open portion of their regular June meeting Thursday night, June 21, as they hired Joel Bryan as band instructor and Hollie Clarke as elementary special education teacher. When board member Dave Ruen asked about the pools of teachers available at this time, Superintendent Jeff Boggs replied there were not as many applicants as there had been in the past. He assured the board that Bryan had been at the top of the pool both last year and this year; Bryan's contract will be a regular contract now. Boggs told the board there had been two strong candidates for the elementary special education position; Clarke, who was at Fillmore Central last year, had been at the top of the pool.

Several teaching positions remain to be filled for the coming 2007-2008 school year. Currently, Boggs and staff have been interviewing candidates for the fifth grade and combination first and second grade positions. The interviews were scheduled to be completed on Friday. Still unfilled is the high school math position.

Other business conducted by the board included authorizing the seeking of bread and milk bids and approving using the 2007 budget as a starting point in creating the 2008 budget. Boggs said the roughly $4 million budget would be similar to the previous year with few changes. Commenting that the budget had many line entries, Boggs said the bottom line was that the school has for the past several years ended up with more than they began with each year. The board also passed the Health and Safety Performance Criteria; this is necessary each year so the school can be eligible for health and safety money from the state and so the school can levy for health and safety funding.

The board closed its meeting to conduct a discussion on property issues.
