Following is an overview of several items presented at the January 24, 2012 Board of Education meeting.
RecognitionsCongratulations to three SASD staff members who have recently completed their National Board Certification:
Congratulations to Peg Jaeger, SASD teacher, who was recognized as Gina K. Flease Memorial Educator of the Year by the Wisconsin Juvenile Detention Educators Association. Ms. Jaeger works with students in the Sheboygan County Juvenile Detention facility.
Instructional Technology Plan
This initiative will support 21st Century learning in the Sheboygan Area School District. It will provide equitable access to digital technology for all students, as well as the hardware, professional development, infrastructure, and human resources necessary to support this one-to-one student to digital device initiative.
No action was taken on the proposal tonight. This plan was presented to provide initial information to the Board of Education on an administration-supported initiative.
Lake Country Academy Charter School Proposal
The school would operate as a non-instrumentality and would receive no additional funding from the District beyond the per pupil allocation from the state.
The presentation was on the agenda for information and discussion. There was no action taken regarding moving forward with the charter school. The charter school will be looking for approval in April to apply for a planning grant from the Department of Public Instruction. If approved, the school would open in the fall of 2013.
Food Service Department
The Board of Education discussed the motion that was passed at the last Committee of the Whole to request proposals from Food Management companies. After discussing the information provided, as well as the six criteria used as a basis for the request for proposal, the Board voted to rescind the motion to request proposals from Food Service Management companies.
The Board has requested a future presentation from the Food Service department on what can be done to improve what is currently offered by the department. Administration will be working to define clear criteria for reviewing the program and what measurable results we are looking to produce with changes to the department.
