5/14 Kewaskum School Board Ends Tech Funding for Board Members

Working with a tight budget, the Kewaskum School has been looking for different ways to save money. At their meeting Monday night, board members narrowly decided by a margin of 4-3 to discontinue reimbursement to board members for their use of technology items and phones.  School Board President Troy Hanson said last year the Kewaskum School Board spent about $150 per month for technology and phone. Each board member will continue to get an iPad, but they will no longer get financial support with the passage of the resolution. In another financial savings issue, the Kewaskum School District is trying to get an $18,000 tech grant for a biofuel converter. The board will find out in June if they will get the grant. In other Kewaskum school board news from Monday night, School Board Vice President Sue Miller made a motion to have one School Board meeting a month  rather than two and it was approved unanimously. The committee meetings will start at 4 p.m. and the School Board meeting will start at 6 p.m. The new monthly meeting policy will start June 9.
