EACSD Board of Directors approves specifics for At-Risk Programming and Dropout Prevention personnel, hears about upgrades at New Albin

by Susan Cantine-Maxson

The monthly meeting of the Board of Directors of the Eastern Allamakee Community School District (EACSD) was held at Kee High School in Lansing Monday, January 20. The meeting was called to order by Heather Schulte, Board President.

After the agenda was adopted, the board asked for audience comments but there were none. The board next approved the authorizations for the January consent items, minutes of the December meetings, bills for January, Secretary’s Financial Report for December, and the Student Activity and Food Service December Reports.

Since there was no old business, the board moved on to new business, which included approving the job description for At-Risk Programming Coordination and Dropout Prevention personnel, along with compensation for At-Risk and Dropout Personnel. The board  approved the general description of job duties for the elementary and high school At-Risk Programming and Dropout Prevention personnel, as well as the compensation for the position. Donna Thomas will receive a pro-rated amount for the work that she has performed and continues to perform in those areas during the 2019-2020 school year.

Under Administrative Reports, Kee High School/Middle School Principal Mary Hogan stated there was nothing notable to report but March would be busy with another school scribbling, SIAC meeting and state testing. EACSD Superintendent Dr. Dale Crozier said he would ask interim New Albin Elementary School Principal Kathy Koether to attend a school board meeting. He also gave an update on the district’s revenues and expenses at the end of December.

Dr. Crozier told the board that he is looking to purchase a pick-up for the school district and would like to install perimeter security cameras at the New Albin facility. He is also looking at removing the three buildings behind the New Albin Elementary School and replacing them with a building built by the Industrial Arts class.

The February board meeting is scheduled for 7 p.m. Monday, February 17.
