The new school year is off to a great start for Fillmore Central students, who started school early this year due to a project being done at the high school next summer. Principal Heath Olstad said everything is running smoothly.

At their regular meeting on August 28, the school board approved several staffing changes for the new year. The resignation of Special Ed. teacher Julie Siebenaler was approved, as well as the hire of Barbara Cihak to take her place. They also accepted the resignation of Terisa Scrabeck as Title I paraprofessional, and approved her hire for the 4/5 School Readiness teacher. The new Title I teacher, Laura Graves, was approved. Christina Bothun was hired as the ECFE (Early Childhood Family Education) Parent Educator, and Connie Lindstrom was approved for the Response to Intervention teacher at .4 FTE.

Tracy Ward was approved for a Special Ed. Paraprofessional position. Aubrey Johnson was approved for a paraprofessional position, and she will be doing special ed. billing and office work as well. Angie Haugerud was approved for a part-time Community Ed. position.

For sports, Ashley Case was approved for a 9th grade volleyball coach. Athletic Director Chris Mensink said there are now five coaches for the 57 girls in volleyball in grades 7-12.

It was approved to allow additional assignments for two high school staff; Becky Mueller and Levi Olstad for additional math help for students, and Brady Grewe for adaptive Physical Education 45 minutes a week.

A contract was approved for Melissa Simonson for a Mental Health Therapist for the Root River Program. The contract includes tuition paid by the district for her to finish getting her license. Superintendent Richard Keith made it clear that the tuition is something that is being paid back by Simonson.

A psychologist service agreement was approved from Hiawatha Valley for a Physically impaired/traumatic brain injury staff, which will be paid hourly. They will use this person as needed.

A two-month Psychologist Service agreement was approved for the Root River Program. Director Micki Breitsprecher explained the person will be shared with Kingsland, and will do things that her staff can’t do on their own until they find a full-time employee. The contract is for up to 15 hours during that two-month time.
