LAURENS MARATHON COMMUNITY SCHOOL DISTRICT
Three Laurens-Marathon Board of Education members have announced they will not seek re-election this November. Dorothy Lamberti, Deb Kenobbie and Pete Runneberg will step down from their role on the Board of Education after the elections on November 5, 2019.
There will be three vacancies for Board at large seats.
Mr. Williamson, Laurens-Marathon CSD Superintendent, would like to thank Mrs. Lamberti, Mrs. Kenobbie and Mr. Runneberg for their service and dedication to our school district. Serving on the Board of Education requires considerable commitment of time and effort and these members have went above and beyond of their role as a board member. These Board members have lead the district through recent challenging situations. They have played an important part in establishing a bright future for our students. The Laurens Marathon community thanks them for their contributions.
Per Iowa state law, school board members serve four-year terms, with the elections taking place in odd-numbered years. Community members interested in running for the board can pick up nomination papers at the LM front office or by contacting Board Secretary Amy Hubbell at email@example.com.
Board candidates must get the signatures of at least 13 qualified voters who live within the Laurens-Marathon Community School District. The deadline to submit nomination papers for the November ballot is Thursday September 19 at 5pm. The LM Board of Education meets once per month on the 2nd Monday of the month. Meetings take place in the LM media center on the 3rd floor.

Message From The Board
The Laurens-Marathon Community School District has a five member board of directors. Board members are elected for four year terms. The board establishes policies and sets goals and objectives.
The board meets on the second Monday of each month in the Media Center on the third floor of the school. The public is encouraged to attend regular meetings. The school board president and superintendent set the school board agenda. You can find a copy of each agenda on this website as well as on the window of the lobby office 24 hours in advance. You can review a copy of the board materials at the meeting.
We welcome your ideas and questions. If you have a specific concern, the best place to begin is with those involved: the teacher or principal. Hopefully, your problem can be quickly resolved. If you still have questions, please contact the superintendent. If further action is then required, the board will be happy to hear your concerns.
We welcome visitors at our meetings. People may present comments, suggestions or concerns for two minutes per person even if the issue is not on the agenda. For the board to take action, however, an item must be on the agenda. To get a place on the agenda contact the board president, vice-president or superintendent. Please keep in mind that Iowa law forbids the board from discussing specific employees at a public meeting.
We encourage your active participation in school affairs. Together we can have a strong community school.
