Chatfield discusses possibility of fifth kindergarten teacher

Chatfield School Board members met on Tuesday, July 17, 2012, for the regular monthly meeting in the high school library. There were a few issues discussed that will affect the coming school year and the district’s future.

One of the items of discussion was the size of the Kindergarten classes for the 2012-2013 school year. Currently, the district has four Kindergarten teachers. This year the elementary is expecting to have roughly 90 students in the Kindergarten class. There was possible discussion that if any more students were to register with the Chatfield district for Kindergarten this summer, it is possible that a fifth teacher may need to be hired. For now, the board decided to continue with the recommendation to proceed with only four instructors. In each section there would be about 23 students.

Superintendent Ed Harris had a few points of discussion during the meeting as well. Harris recognized the school’s MDE School Finance Award that the district has received for consistent error free fiscal years. Harris also mentioned that the school’s bullying programs and policies are being reviewed to make sure that they are currently up to date.

The summer months are the ideal times for making staff alterations. Five elementary staff positions have been filled by Tiffany Wilkie, Mary Catherine Johnson, Bryan Crowson, Meredith Keefe, and Jayna Harstad. 7th and 8th grade volleyball coaches for this year will be Deen Narveson and Nikki Ostby. Stacy Hogberg was hired for a part-time English position along with a part-time online instructor position filled by Mitch Lee. The years of service from Julie Gloss were also recognized as she resigned from the Spanish instructor position this month.

Before concluding the meeting, the next board meeting was announced for August 20, 2012, at 7:00 pm.
