Smith-Green Community Schools is the recipient of a $100,000 Classroom Innovation Grant for the second year in a row. According to SGCS Grant Coordinator and Director of Special Education Nancy Becker, of the 22 school districts awarded this grant last year, only 16 were chosen to have the grant extended for the 2012-13 school year.
According to Becker, the grant was written “to extend the learning opportunities in technology into the elementary school.” Each classroom in grades K-4 will have access to a group of seven iPads to use on a daily basis. In addition, the grant covers funding for teachers’ professional development. Churubusco Elementary School Principal Shellie Miller, Vice Principal Nicole Veit, SGCS Superintendent Steve Darnell, Instructional Technology Coach David Uchtman and Becker traveled to the Department of Education to present the grant to a panel of experts. Miller and Veit developed a short computer animation to demonstrate the school’s need for the grant and presented it to the panel—they also presented the animation to the Board and community members at Monday evening’s meeting.
The animation illustrated four virtual scenarios addressing technology issues CES students face on a daily basis. Miller and Veit said that students live in a technology-driven world and they crave immediate feedback along with individualized and interactive learning opportunities. With access to the iPads, Miller and Veit said that students will have access to e-books that meet their individual interests, information will not become outdated as in textbooks, teachers will have the tools to actively engage students in assessments, and students will have a “world of research at their fingertips and limitless ways to present what they learn.”
In other Board news:
* CJSHS Principal Austin Couch recognized Response to Intervention (RTI) teachers Jessica Wright, Heather Heironimus, Ashley Slain, Liz Phillips and Ashley Kitt as “Teachers of the Month.” Couch shared comments from the CJSHS staff regarding the RTI team. According to Assistant Principal Matt Widenhoefer, “This core team of teachers has increased academic success and confidence with our struggling students all year long. Without their due diligence and effort, some of our students would have had a tough time graduating.”
* CJSHS Choir and New Era director Travis Carie submitted a letter of resignation effective at the end of the 2011-12 school year. The Board also approved a 20-day extension of David Uchtman’s contract at a daily rate of $225.89 for the 2011-12 school year. Uchtman is the Instructional Technology Coach for the district and needs the extra days to complete a total system set-up after reconfiguring the network.
* The Board accepted $623.97 from Jeni Cripe and her senior high aerobics class. The money was raised through a Zumba®thon held in February and the money will be used for P.E. equipment. The Board also accepted a donation from Kari Hyndman and her family in the amount of $250. The Hyndman family donated the balance in the Jared Hyndman Scholarship Fund to the Smith-Green Eagle Garden Fund.
The next regularly scheduled School Board meeting will be Monday, April 9 at 7 p.m. in the Board Room of the Administrative Building.
