After rescinding a no-hire freeze in February, the Churubusco Town Council wasted no time filling three positions.
Long-time police officer and former Marshal John Hart made the switch to work fulltime in the Street Department. Part-time Street Department worker John Forker was also hired as a full-time employee in that department.
After Hart made the move, that left a position open in the Police Department. Town Marshal Chad Fulkerson told the Council during the March 7 meeting that he had two applicants and decided to hire Mike Engle as a full-time deputy. Engle will start his job on March 19.
In other Council news:
• There will be a community-wide garage sale on September 28-29. For more information contact Madalyn Bartl in the Town Hall at 693-9350.

School nets technology grant PDF Print E-mail
Wednesday, 14 March 2012 20:45

The Indiana Department of Education (IDOE) announced on Thursday, March 8, 23 schools and school corporations will receive grants to implement classroom technology projects. These grants are awarded through Indiana’s classroom innovation grant program, which is funded primarily through the David C. Ford educational technology fund. School districts that received $200,000 grants in 2011 were eligible to extend their grants through a competitive written and presentation process for a maximum award of $100,000.
Nancy Becker, District Grant Coordinator, stated, “We are so excited to have this opportunity available for our students. We feel proud that the DOE has shown confidence in our progress thus far with our initial classroom innovation grant by allowing us to continue our digital learning quest for staff and students here at Smith-Green for a second year.”
Of the 36 districts eligible to apply for the award this year, Smith-Green’s proposal focused on expanding digital learning for students in grades K-4. All students in these grades will now have access to IPad’s to be used for individualized, small group and whole group lessons. Use of the digital learning tool in the classroom will span all curricular areas with a focused concentration on language arts, reading, and math instruction. Grant funds will help create a 21st Century learning culture in the elementary using the latest technology. Elementary teachers will also receive extensive training to use the IPad’s with students for interactive learning, motivation and inspiration for students to achieve their personal best.
Steve Darnell, district Superintendent noted, “Mrs. Miller and Mrs. Veit, our elementary administrators, were able to construct a winning proposal and presentation that demonstrated to the Department of Education Smith-Green’s commitment to integrating technology. Our teachers are great. They are fully committed to excellence in teaching and learning and cheered when administrators announced receipt of the grant.”
Churubusco Elementary School Principal Shellie Miller added, “We are extremely excited and anticipate the arrival of the IPads for classroom learning. Our teachers are energized and ready to begin implementing this new technology into their instruction.”
The mission of Smith-Green Community Schools is to provide a superior education that ensures success for every student through excellence in teaching and learning. This new grant award of $100,000 will help move the district along the path to this success for every student.
