The New Bremen School Board meeting opened at 7 p.m. Oct. 19 at the Dianne Komminsk Center for Innovative Thinking, 901 E. Monroe St. in New Bremen.

The meeting began with the pledge of allegiance. There were no special presentations, so the meeting progressed to Mrs. Kramer. Kramer said she was preparing for testing this year. She noted that first and second grade are up, which is good, but third grade is down so they are working more with them to get the classes ready for their testing. Kindergarten is about the same as last year. The school is also participating in 18 hours worth of student dyslexia training. It is broken down into 5 days, with 6 hours of training each day. There are 65 students enrolled for kindergarten screening this spring and nine of these students are outside of the school district and have taken the opportunity of open enrollment.
