Board, principal to discuss China trip
The Lansing School Board will discuss Lansing High School Principal Steve Dike's recent trip to China, Lansing Middle School's assessment results and the retirement of an LHS math teacher at its meeting Tuesday.
Dike, Assistant Superintendent Donna Hughes and Lansing business representatives Chris Aus and Dick Cameron visited China in November with school district officials from the Greater Kansas City area on tour cosponsored by the Freedom Foundation and the University of Kansas.
Aus and Cameron will present to the Board why the district needs to develop international relations with China and why students should expand their knowledge about China, said Superintendent Randal Bagby. Hughes will address the State of Kansas Social Studies Standards as they relate to international studies.
Dike will address the logistics of the potential exchange of students and teachers with China.
The board meets at 7 p.m. Tuesday in the Middle School choir room.
Other points the board will discuss at its meeting include:
- Making Mary Alice Schroeger's temporary position as Director of the Lansing Educational Foundation a permanent position.
- Reviewing LHS curriculum changes for 2005-06.
- Reviewing the draft 2005-06 school calendar.
