The Armstrong-Ringsted Board of Education Monday night approved student fees for the 2012-2013 school year.

There will be a slight increase in several fees, including book rent going from $40 to $50, a new $30 technology fee to cover insurance on iPads that will be issued to high-school students, an increase in the driver's education fee from $125 to $150 and a 10-cent increase on breakfast meal tickets with lunch up 20 cents.

The board appointed Erin Rogers board secretary/treasurer and Rick Engel as board attorney.

Also approved were 28E agreements to share Nate Hanson's services as transportation director with North Kossuth and Sentral and to continue sharing maintenance director Tom Mart with the City of Armstrong. Superintendent Matt Berninghaus said this is the last year in which the district will qualify for supplemental weighting from the state for the sharing agreements.

Berninghaus said the district was trying to share as many teachers as possible among the three districts, and the board approved any 28E agreements with North Kossuth or Sentral.

The district also appointed official depositories, free/reduced lunch and breakfast programs and accepted the resignation of Steve Waldstein as industrial technology coordinator, head football coach and girls high-school track coach.

The board also approved hiring Joel Klock as assistant high-school girls basketball coach and Bruce Larson as assistant high-school boys basketball coach.
