VI.2. Principals
Agenda Item Type:  Information Item
Discussion:  Principal Odens noted PT Conferences were well attended again this semester, with elementary teachers estimating nearly 100 percent turn out and MS teachers noting a much busier second day. Parents were given their students’ AIMSWEB results during conferences. RTI met for another day as a team with specific parents to discuss and make plans on how we can help their child have success. In addition, the team has made a change to grade-level RTI meetings , having them afterschool instead of during planning time, enabling resource, ELL, and counselors to attend the meetings. At the end of January, Mrs. Rhonda Osborne with Heartland Counseling came and shared information about her neuro-feedback method. Osborne explained the work she does mapping the brain and using this to help adults and children with ADHD, depression, anxiety, etc. leaving information to pass on to interested parents. CCS fifth and sixth graders attended the UNL Food and Nutrition Day at the fairgrounds today with several other area schools participating. Students learned about nutrition, received a sack lunch, and were sent home with some groceries and recipes for a healthy meal. The PTO Book Parade for grades K-4 was also held today  and the PTO Donuts for Dads for K-4 students and their fathers or another adult in their life will be Friday, February 23rd from 7:30-8:00. Lastly Principal Odens noted a District Title review will be held February 27th and she will be starting second semester evaluations next week. Principal Scheel opened noting staff have done a commendable job of stepping up to share their knowledge at the last several PD Fridays. Staff teaching staff has yielded opportunities to work on/clarify curriculum, build benchmark tests, examine and learn tech tools, and reflect on growth. Principal Scheel has used this time to work with middle school core subject teachers to learn and navigate TestWiz, Dept. of Ed.'s formative assessment tool providing online practice testing opportunities that mimick NeSA. Currently, Principal Scheel said the MS teachers are working to build benchmark tests that would occur in MS every 4-6 weeks and would provide data for the RTI process and assist in the identification of which students need further instruction.
