Chatfield students utilize iPads for class projects

The last couple of weeks for the entire Chatfield School District has been exciting time as fall athletic tournament time has taken Chatfield on the road to both the Mayo Civic Center for girls volleyball and the Metrodome for football. The excitement hasn’t quite subsided yet as the Chatfield Gophers will play for the Class AA championship title on Friday, November 29 at 1 p.m. in the Metrodome against Minneota/Lincoln. Talk about these events even permeated into discussion during the Chatfield School Board’s regular monthly meeting on Monday, November 18.

High School Principal Randy Paulson congratulated both the volleyball team and the football team for their accomplishments this season.

Elementary Principal Craig Ihrke reported to the board that his focus over the past month has been on the development of Professional Learning Communities, otherwise known as PLCs. Ihrke, along with others, have been meeting with other schools to see how they effectively utilize PLCs and how their strategies may benefit Chatfield.

Curriculum and staff development coordinator Elissa Johnsrud who specializes in reading stated that the Action 100 program has had a great start this. The teachers feel more established in this second year of the program.

Technology integration specialist Kristi Cook reported that lots of projects have been done with the aid of the district’s iPads for students. In addition, students have been collaborating online via discussion forums on several topics. Teachers have also been engaging in training from beginner levels through progressing stages.

Superintendent Ed Harris reported that coaching contracts, under the new evaluation system, will be approved after the conclusion of each season. For example, following this year’s football, volleyball, and cross country seasons, coaches’ contracts will be up for renewal at the next school board meeting in December. Negotiations for principal contracts are also now moving forward.

There will be an early dismissal on November 27 for students, November 28-29 are Thanksgiving Break days, and the next school board meeting will be December 16, 2013, which will include the Truth in Taxation hearing.
