Goodhue County Education District Board briefs

Infinite Campus approved

The Goodhue County Education District Board unanimously approved a user license agreement with Infinite Campus, Inc., which will replace JMC as its student reporting system.

GCED Executive Director Cherie Johnson said Infinite Campus will be more compatible with the student reporting systems that its member districts already have in place. In fact, Kenyon-Wanamingo, Cannon Falls and Zumbrota-Mazeppa use Infinite Campus.

"It's very inclusive of what you need. It's responsive," said Kenyon-Wanamingo Supt. Jeff Evert.

GCED will officially implement Infinite Campus Sept. 15.

Johnson recaps facilities planning process

Executive Director Cherie Johnson updated the board on the long-range facilities planning process. Currently, member districts are sending transportation data to Springsted so that a cost-effectiveness analysis can be done for potential sites in Red Wing or Cannon Falls. The board could vote in October on whether to keep the current buildings or move forward with new construction.

Johnson presented the district's progress to the Red Wing School Board Monday evening as well.

Meeting dates changed

The board rescheduled its meetings for the rest of the year due to staff absences. The schedule is: Sept. 18; Oct. 30; Nov. 21 and Dec. 19. All meetings take place at 7 p.m. at Jefferson School in Red Wing.

Transfer: Wendy Ahern, coordinator; Carrie Armstrong, secretary at Jefferson; Jamie Pickerign, student services secretary.
