The Kingsland School Board approved strategic objectives and district goals at their meeting Monday, March 19.

The vision, mission, strategic objectives and district goals were developed through a series of strategic planning meetings. “The vision for Kingsland Public Schools is to be committed to an academically rich environment through the integration of twenty-first century skills,” Superintendent John McDonald said. The mission the board adopted is that by 2017, Kingsland will be recognized for academic excellence; safe and positive learning environment; innovative technology; community partnership; and student and parent engagement.

The strategic objectives for the district are: increase academic excellence through expanded curriculum, course offerings, extra-curricular and co-curricular activities; create a safe, positive learning environment; attract and retain highly effective teachers; identify and assist underachieving students; increased accountability between school, community, parents and students; and, facilities that match our educational needs.McDonald said that each of the strategic objectives will be broken down into more specific goals for each of the grade levels.

In other action, the board approved several fundraising events. The “Jump for Heart” and “Hoops for Heart” will raise money for the American Heart Association. The track team will sell beef jerky to raise money for a four by six foot record board.

The Robotics team will be holding a unique fundraising event, Teacher vs. Student Dodge Ball Matches on March 22. The copy on the flyer announcing the event reads, “Ever wanted to pelt a teacher with a dodge ball? Well, here is your chance!”

Students are invited to put together a six-person team to challenge the teachers. The teachers who will be participating according to Jordan Chinnow are Mr. Hill, Mr. Pryor, Mr. Bergy, Coach Stinson, Coach Peterson, Mr. Boerger and Senorita McMahon. “I think that once the students see the flyer, they will be interesting in coming to watch the matches,” Chinnow said.

The board also approved the implementation of the TIES management system. TIES is a Minnesota software developer with a history of reliability, stability and state-of-the-art security. TIES integrated student, personalized learning, finance, human resources and payroll systems drive decisions through intuitive reports and metric d .....
