The USD 480 Board of Education met Monday evening and approved a number of technology-related items including the renewal of PowerSchool, annual software and service licenses, a new firewall package, ALICE E-learning training, and the replacement of many Windows 7 computers that can not be upgraded to Windows 10 for a little over $182,000.  


Due to the current HVAC work being done in LHS, large amounts of the existing ceiling tiles will be replaced to avoid having patches of new panels intermixed with old tiles. 


On April 25, 2019, S.B. 130 became law in Kansas, affecting when board presidents and vice presidents are elected.   The 480 BOE voted and determined that officer elections will now be held in January and extended the office of the current president, Steve Helm, and vice-president, Stew Cauble, until January 2020.
