The Blue Earth Area School Board took the first steps towards major restoration efforts along school grounds during their latest meeting on July 10, which lasted all of 18 minutes. The board authorized a 10-year facility maintenance plan for the district. As part of that plan, school district buildings and grounds supervisor Alan Gieser explained that he has already mapped out window replacement and roof replacement projects for the fiscal year of 2019. “We’ve gotten rid of the deficit, so we’ll be starting out clean with our budget in 2020,” Gieser explained. “The money we’re receiving from the LTFM (Long Term Facility Maintenance) can be held until we decide how we want to allocate that for future projects.” Construction efforts to replace the deteriorating high school parking lot are one of Gieser’s main points of emphasis during this 10-year plan. As Gieser noted, the parking lot has not been replaced in the 23 years since the school was originally built. Other action items from the meeting included the membership in the Minnesota School Board Association for 2017-2018, as well as the authorization of three personnel matters. Custodian Jacob Burgett’s resignation was accepted, special education teacher LeAnn Boettcher’s contract was approved, and Title 1 teacher Hannah Olson’s parental leave request was authorized. The next School Board meeting will take place on Monday, Aug. 21, at 5:30 p.m.
