Colby will study middle school idea
Colby School Supt. Lloyd Rueb and his office workers will move to the former Lower El building before the start of the second semester, freeing up space for another EEN classroom at Colby High School. The move was approved by the Colby School Board this week, and the group also approved a motion to have the Facilities Committee study the possibility of the construction of a middle school for the district, as well as pursue the idea of consolidation with the Abbotsford district.
The move of Rueb’s office to the former Lower Elementary School on Spence Street will be accomplished quickly, it was stated — by the start of second semester Jan. 12. Remodeling at the school, and work at the high school, will cost an estimated $12,000.
Rueb’s office will be occupied by the high school guidance dept., and the guidance area will have a couple walls removed and be used for Vickie LaVenture’s EEN class, which includes 14 students.
That followed an immediate recommendation of the Facilities Committee, a group which met five times recently to discuss the district’s educational space needs. Members included the board’s Buildings and Grounds Committee (Chairman Earl Boss, Larry Meyer and Joe Feldbruegge), administrators John Hocking, Steve Linzmeier and Erv LaFave, teachers Karen Winkler, Scott Thies, Miriam Johnson, Jan Tischendorf, and Adell Stelzel and parents Pat Kampmeyer, Cindy Hardrath, Bryce Luchterhand and Gerri Batten.
