The Chatfield School Board met Monday, August 19 for its regular August meeting. The short meeting was focused around plans and updates for the rapidly approaching 2013-2014 school year.

Elementary Principal Craig Ihrke explained to board members that the elementary building looks great and is ready to go for the next academic year. High School Principal Randy Paulson echoed Ihrke on the new school year. “We’ve found some good hires after a long search,” said Paulson about the newly hired staff.

Both principals noted some important dates in the coming week for Chatfield students:

Superintendent Harris reported that the annual audit was complete, and the district’s records were found in very good shape.

Harris also stated that preliminary ACT test results have arrived, however specifics are not yet permitted to be released for the public. Harris was able to inform those in attendance at the meeting that in all areas Chatfield ranked above the state average. Chatfield also improved in all areas since the previous year.

Before adjourning the board approved teaching contracts for English instructor Angela Wiegmann and agriculture instructor Jessica Bester. The board also approved the student and teacher handbooks.
