QUICK NOTE FROM THE SUPERINTENDENT

Greetings Patrons of the Edmore School District

Greetings Parents/Guardians:

 

The school year is in full swing and students are busy with their academic studies while new staff is becoming accustomed to their instructional role in our rural school setting.  Since the last newsletter we have added a new Science instructor. Angelito Rivera comes to Edmore from the Philippines and brings 14 year of teaching experience and a different cultural perspective that our staff and students have found intriguing and informative. We welcome Angelito to the Edmore Family.

Staff Development

Each year staff participates in professional development opportunities. This year is no exception. Each of our new staff are teamed up with a mentor instructor.  This individual is a veteran teacher in the area and teaches in the same academic discipline as the new Edmore instructor. The mentor will provide guidance both in teaching pedagogy and specific subject content to the mentee.  In addition to the mentor training, elementary staff will receive specific Language Arts training based on the “Steve Dunn” model of writing. They will also be trained in the multi-tiered support system (MTSS) which allows differentiation in instruction to our students.  These trainings are offered through the North East Educational Service Cooperative (NESC). Staff will also be certified in Alert-Lockdown-Inform-Counter-Evacuate (ALICE) training. This training will allow staff and students to better respond to emergency situations in a public setting.  CPR/AED training and certification will be earned by all staff working in the Edmore School.

School Board

Each year the administration presents a budget to the school board and that budget is then sent to the respective county auditors so they may collect property taxes to fund K12 education in the Edmore School District. Based on the preliminary budget projections, the Edmore school board is requesting less mills from the auditor of each of the three counties from the previous year. The school board lowered the building fund mills as the boiler project is complete and there is no immediate need to continue to increase the building fund until other facility projects arise. Final valuation amounts will determine if individual property taxes will increase or decrease.  This number should be finalized by November of this year.  The school board is committed to providing a quality education to the children of the Edmore School District.  

 

On behalf of the Edmore school board, staff, and students, we would like to thank the Edmore patrons for their support.

 

Professionally,

 

 

Frank Schill, Superintendent
