LAGRANGE - The Lakeland School District is ready for a new school year.
At Monday evening’s school board meeting administrators reported school buildings are ready to go following roofing projects...and in the case of Parkside Elementary...tornado damage in July.
There are plenty of new faces to start the school year. Superintendent Risa Herber says 47 new employees will start the year at Lakeland.
Monday the board hired Vanessa White of Garrett as the new assistant principal at Parkside. She most recently worked at Churubusco.
The board approved advertising the district’s 2015 budget. They scheduled a public hearing for September 8th and approval for October 6th.
They also hired two appraisal firms to look at some property that the district has some interest in acquiring.
