Chase County hosted the 23rd NCDA Show Choir Festival February 13th. The Junior High (JH) and High School (HS) Show Choir’s both received Gold Trophies for their outstanding performances. Mr. Hayes did an excellent job lining up the event and everything went smoothly. Hauxwell wanted to thank Agnes Strand, Jill Mays, the Custodial Staff, Rex Felker, Kitchen Staff, and anyone else who helped for the event. We had a total of 19 teams, with only 5 receiving a Gold Trophy Award. This was the HS Show Choirs' 21st consecutive Gold Trophy. Hauxwell noted the last time our JH received a Gold Trophy was in 2011. Sub-District Basketball will be at North Platte High this year.

VII.2. Principals
Agenda Item Type:  Information Item
Discussion: 

Principal Scheel's report following the CCS TIP plan format highlighted RTI - Teaching staff have begun working on the creation of learning guides that will clearly document the district's curriculum on a K-12 level. When first drafts are completed, they will be available on the school's website to clearly communicate learning objectives unit by unit. Internally, these will be a driver for teacher-to-teacher communication, particularly in the intervention process for students who struggle as well as how to extend learning for whom particular concepts are learned easily. Common Instructional Language - Together, the Principals have penciled out preliminary versions of a team that will pilot various Marzano-based instructional practices and eventually work on the creation of an updated evaluation instrument.They have also formed an initial partnership of a coaching process with Cross County Schools who also are taking a similar approach. PBiS - Currently, we are awaiting information regarding a potential grant. If this grant does not materialize, we are planning to still pursue PBiS training for all district staff. This is the component of the TIP plan that had the most positive reception from staff. There are some components of this approach that are already forming. Chelsie Thayer's MIC time class is working to revamp the Longhorn Pride awards in hopes of creating student ownership. They are also partnering with Jeremy Vlasin and the 8th grade Unity Council to proactively change the current student culture toward something more positive. At this stage, the Growth Mindset and #chasecopride portions are in the planning stages as we are examining staff interest and attempting to form teams. Principal Odens noted the early Febr. PT Conferences were well attended, with a large number of people stop and visit with Mrs. Dickey in the office about the Title I program during this time. K-8 had about 440 meetings with parents. Most teachers in the K-4 elementary talked to 100% of their parents. The school provided subway sandwiches for staff on Monday and PTO provided a taco bar on Tuesday. Both were greatly appreciated. Principal Odens said work has begun on the alignment process with all staff. Elementary is starting to work with math and RWSL essential standards, initially working with their grade level teams. We will then work on aligning our curriculum across grade levels to eliminate gaps and overlapping. Lastly, Odens said the K-4 PTO Book Parade Jan. 24th was very well attended. PTO will also be sponsoring Donuts for Dads on February 21st. Odens closed noting she will be finished with second observations for non-tenured staff by the end of February.

Troy will be discussing with the coaches a 1000 mile limit per sport and no more than two camps.

We are looking at ways to limit the amount of time over the summer.  Steve-we need a basic number of students on the van, but we want to make sure we offer the programs for the students.  

Karl-We should use our facilities for camp purposes.  

Sheila-Use to let coaches go to state competitions.  Are these programs making our programs better.  It is not all cost, there are issues related to not going.  If we put the stop to some of this, it might give time back to the families.
