Fillmore Central hires coach for new dance team


Mon, Aug 3rd, 2015
Posted in Preston Education

The Fillmore Central School Board met on July 28, 2015 at 6:30 p.m. in the high school lunch room in Harmony.

High School Principal Heath Olstad noted that the district is working hard to educate coaches and athletes on head injury prevention and treatment. Contrary to popular belief, soccer, not football, is the sport where athletes are most likely to sustain a head injury.

Olstad mentioned that Fillmore Central is still looking for a second volleyball coach for the 9th grade team and B-Squad.

The Director of Special Education, Micki Breitsprecher, gave her report to the board. She is preparing for the Special Education Advisory Committee’s second annual family picnic, which will be held on August 27 from 5-7 p.m. in Preston. The picnic provides an opportunity for families of students receiving special education services to network and find out new information on special education services and laws.

Breitsprecher said that last year a lot of time was spent on monitoring special education services for the Minnesota Department of Education’s Special Education Compliance Review and for the Special Education Fiscal Review. There were not many areas where change was needed, and the few things that did need change will be addressed and corrected by the end of the year. Overall, Fillmore Central is doing very well with Special Education. There will be no monitoring done in the Special Ed department for six years.

The resignations of part-time paraprofessional Donna Oelrich, long-time daycare employee Allen Lafleur, and B-Squad volleyball coach Ashley Case were approved. The hiring of Kari Berg as dance coach was approved for the new dance team. April Royet was hired as an aide in the One Block at a Time toddler room.

Olstad presented the second readings of the 2015-16 K-6, 7-12, faculty and coach handbooks. The lunch prices were revised to reflect the new lunch prices and the Three Rivers Conference entry fee into sporting events was raised $1. A more rigid uniform purchase rotation will be observed and all uniforms will be paid for by the school. Students will be required to use the protective bags provided by the school for their computers.

The faculty handbook clarified cell phone use and gave a more specific dress code. Olstad noted that faculty members have a responsibility to promote a good image as role models for the students. Teachers will be as .....
