The Lexington Schools have seen a good start to the 2014-2015 schools year.  “I think it’s went real well,” expressed Doehn, “We’ve had good numbers and attendance has been good.  I really like what I see of our students in the class room, our teachers working with them, and I think our administrative team’s done a great job of leading the district so far this year.  We’ll be ready for some rest and then of course get back to work at the 1st of the year.”

There are many part in a well oiled machine, the Minute Man seem to have them all plus some.  “We just want to make sure that we are instructing our well planned curriculum,” Doehn explained, “We’re preparing our students for the testing and we of course want our kids involved in as many activities as possible here.  We have a lot of good kids, a lot of good teachers, and our community supports our schools very well and I think we are fortunate in that.  We just want to kick off 2015 on a positive note and finish strong.”

Another big area for schools is the funding they receive and how the utilize it.  “Our budget is strong,” said Doehn, “Fortunately, we have solid fund balances.  We’ve tried to do some things in our district to increase security and also do some maintenance items.  It remains to be seen how state funding will be starting in July for fiscal year 2016 but I think we’re solid.  We are already planning for next year and seeing what we can do to close out this year.”
