    The Lanesville Board of School Trustees learned Tuesday night (July 21) at its regular monthly meeting that the enrollment is up this year for nearly every grade in the system, with the exception of a few. The enrollment figures are not official, and are only preliminary. Initial figures will be available once the school has its Average Daily Membership (ADM) done in mid September.
    Lanesville Elementary School Principal Marsha Himmelhaver said at the meeting that “it appears that in our second (grade), we’re going to have 58 students.”
    A preliminary figure of 332 students in grades K-6 this fall was given by Himmelhaver. This number could go up or down by the official ADM count. Instead of sending out decline letters to out of district students waiting to find spots in the school, Himmelhaver said students not yet enrolled from out of the district have been put on a waiting list.
    She recommended adding another second grade teacher as soon as possible. The extra classroom would be available, according to Himmelhaver.
    Himmelhaver stressed the need for the extra classroom teacher, “The formative years are critical. We want children to read fluently when they enter 3rd grade.”
    The board then voted to authorize Supt. Sam Gardner to hire another second grade teacher.
    Lanesville Junior-Senior High School Principal Janet Paige said that her preliminary count of grades 7-12 shows a total of 352 students. The incoming freshman class is the largest as of now, with 67 students incoming.
Federal Stimulus Program Loan -
    In another matter, Gardner informed the board that $1.4 million in federal stimulus money was available in the form of an interest free loan. It would be repayable in 12-14 years. The $1.4 million amount is based on the Lanesville School Corporation’s total assessed evaluation of $144 million.
