The Lansing Board of Education has approved goals for 2019, according to the superintendent.

The goals were approved when board members met Monday. The goals touch on topics such as personnel, finance, instruction and facilities.

Superintendent Darrel Stufflebeam said he had drafted proposed goals for Monday’s meeting based on input from various people.

Stufflebeam said board members approved the list after making a couple of changes.

One of the approved goals for personnel is to examine the feasibility of an employee day care program at Lansing Elementary School. A goal for finance is the study of the feasibility of lowering or eliminating school fees.

Stufflebeam had included on the list a goal concerning a discussion about the future of the former Lansing Intermediate School building and a study of options for the building. But board members decided not to pursue this goal and it was eliminated from the approved list, according to Stufflebeam.

Not to be confused with what is now called the Lansing Intermediate School, the former intermediate school building is located near Lansing Middle School.

Stufflebeam said part of the old building is being used for storage. The building also is used by outside groups.

The superintendent said board members added a goal of creating links to video recordings of board meetings on the district’s new website.

“We’re going to add those from now on,” he said.

Also Monday, board members approved a calendar for the 2019-2020 school year. According to the calendar, Aug. 14 will be the first day of classes for many of the Lansing students. All other students will begin their school year Aug. 15.

The last day of classes will be May 21, 2020.
