Jensen elected School Board president

The Rice Lake School Board elected Keven Jensen as president in an election of officers at the board's regular meeting Monday, April 22.
Outgoing president Steve Bowman said he was not seeking re-election to that office.
Other new officers on the board are Janna Haack, vice president; Miriam Vavra, clerk; and Paula Brettingen, treasurer.
Newly elected board member Bill Schmitzer was sworn in and assumed a position on the board.
Natalie Robarge, who was also elected to the board in the spring election, was not present and has not been sworn in as an official board member.
Board members were asked to submit to Jensen their choices of which committees they would like to serve on in the new term. New committee assignments will be announced at the next meeting.
Employment changes were approved.
They included the resignation of LaVern Pottinger, math teacher at the high school and charter school after 16 years of service; and the employment of Sharon Danielson and Nicole Stodola, as part-time food service workers at Hilltop Elementary.
Staff Appreciation Week is May 6-10 in the district.
The preliminary staffing report for 2013-2014 was approved, with Schmitzer abstaining because he said he did not have the level of awareness needed to cast a vote.
Jensen reported that the active shooter drill held 2 weeks ago went well. District administrator Larry Brown said another drill will take place before the end of the school year. It will involve busing students from their school sites to a reunification point, where parents could pick them up should an actual emergency take place. Brown said the drill will be simplified so as not to instill fear in students.
