Wow! What a Season

This year’s speech season was a very productive affair! We went to state in both Large Group and Individual. Also, although it doesn’t seem like much, our numbers of participants doubled this year! As head coach I’m counting this as a win! Another amazing moment of our season was taking ten different pieces to District Individual Contest in Manson and having seven of those pieces go on to State Individual Contest! An even more exciting moment was finding out that Jennifer Greve, senior, was nominated for All-State Speech! This is basically the highest honor that a Speech participant can receive! Jenni will participate on March 27th at All-State Contest in Cedar Falls on the UNI campus! Thank you for your support and we all cannot wait until next season!    

 

NEW IMMUNIZATION REQUIREMENTS FOR STUDENTS ENTERING BOTH 7TH AND 12TH GRADES FOR THE 2017/2018 SCHOOL YEAR

The Iowa Department of Public Health has made changes to the Iowa Immunization law for the start of the 2017/18 school year.  This change requires that all students entering 7th grade have both a Meningococcal vaccine and a Tdap (Tetanus, Diphtheria, and Pertussis/whopping cough) booster before school starts this fall. 

The Tdap requirement has been in place since the 2013/14 school year and requires a booster dose of Tetanus, Diphtheria, and acellular Pertussis containing vaccine for students entering 7th grade, regardless of the interval since the last Tetanus/Diphtheria containing vaccine.  Pertussis (whopping cough) is a very contagious disease that causes violent coughing fits that make it hard to breathe. 

Meningococcal disease is a life threatening illness that is caused by bacteria that infects the brain, blood, and spinal cord.  It easily spreads in crowded settings. The vaccine will be required prior to both the 7th and 12th grades.

All students entering 7th grade must have proof of having both the Meningococcal and the Tdap vaccines, and students entering 12th grade must have the Meningococcal vaccine, before school starts in August, unless the student has a Certificate of Immunization Exemption

There will be no grace/extension period for the implementation of this requirement.  According to state law, these vaccines, or exemption certificate must be submitted to the school BEFORE the first day of school this fall, or student will NOT be able to attend until this is completed.    


ART, FCS, ITD SHOW

Write it on the calendar! Set your clocks!  Be ready to view the talent offered by East Sac County and the students of Art, Family and Consumer Science, and Industrial Arts.  On Tuesday, May 16th from 3:30-7:00 the three departments will have their ART/FCS/Industrial Arts Show.  Come and view the great pieces and products the students have been working on during the year.  The exhibit will be in the gym at the high school.

The FCS part of the show will include products made by FCS I & FCS II.

Industrial Tech students are from the classes of Wood Tech 1, Advanced Woods, and Computer-Aided-Drafting.  You will see wooden clocks, and furniture such as gun cabinets, Adirondack chairs, end tables and some glass top coffee tables.  CAD Software such as “Solidworks” and “Chief Architect” will be featured in student design projects from the Solidmodeling and Architectural Modeling classes. There will also be some CO2 Dragster demonstrations.

The Art department will be displaying artwork from students in grades 9-12.  There will be drawing, painting, and sculptures.  Individual artists will showcase the Senior Independent Art student’s work.

Come and enjoy a leisurely walk through the display of the talented students here in the high school.

Prom 2017
This year the junior class has chosen the theme “Hollywood.” Plans are well under way to make this a memorable and safe night for the kids.

Decorations, food, and many other small details have been decided and will be ready to put in place once the big day arrives. The location of the Grand March and dinner will be in the large gym at the high school. The Grand March will begin at 5:30 and is open to the public; doors will be open at 4:30 for the public to find a seat. The dance will be held in the small gym after the dinner at the high school and will end at approximately 10:30; this will work out great and keep the students in one place for the night.

As the big day approaches, please be on the look out for more information regarding Prom and the Grand March. The junior class works very hard to host the prom, and we are certain they will be ready to off their hard work on April 8th!

SPRING PLAY
The East Sac County Drama department is busy working on a spring play entitled 12 Incompetent Jurors by Ian McWethy. We have roughly 25 kids working hard on memorizing lines, getting the set ready, gathering props and costumes, and many other tasks that are assigned to them.  Our performances are scheduled for Friday March 24th & Saturday March 25th at 7:00pm at the Middle School Auditorium.  The play is a comedy that takes you into a jury room with 12 zany men and women who are asked to decide the fate of a “cat-napper”.  Between the bickering married couple, to the creepy “French-fry” guy, to the bratty teenager who can’t put her phone down, these 12 jurors provide a wide range of opinions in this funny hour long show.   Please mark down on your calendar March 24th & 25th to attend one or both of the shows, you will roll with laughter!!

NURSE NOTES:
Dear Parents or Guardians,

I am writing to inform you of some health concerns and as a general reminder of our school health policies regarding school children and health issues.  “Tis the Season of Influenza A, Diarrhea, coughing, head lice, Strep throat and many others”

Students, who have vomited, must remain home for 24 hours since last vomiting.
Students who have symptoms of influenza (upper respiratory) must remain home for 24 hours until the coughing and fever have subsided.  If a student has a fever of 100.6* or above, they MUST remain home until they have no fever and have not taken any fever reducing medicine for 24 hours.  As influenza is airborne, this policy will be enforced to ensure a healthy environment for all at school.  I understand that it is difficult when you have to arrange for different childcare, or take off work yourself to be home with a sick child.  Many times they can still have symptoms, even mild, and are acting just fine and wanting to come back to school, and you are ready for them to also!  However, if a child returns to school, still exhibiting these symptoms, they will be putting other students and staff at risk of getting sick also.  If your child does come back to school sick, we will call you to come and pick them up.  We will do all we can to try to stop the spread of illnesses, this does include diarrhea.

If you have any questions, please email me at kwilliams@eastsac.k12.ia.us.  You can also call either elementary buildings in Sac City 712-662-7200 (Monday, Wednesday and Friday), Wall Lake 712-664-2627 (Tuesday or Thursday)

Happy Holidays
Kit Williams, School Nurse

Why spend $600 on a dress that will be worn just once when Dress for Less sells designer label dresses priced anywhere from $5 to $300? When girls consign their dress, we suggest they price it right around half of the original price. All of our dresses are in great condition for a fraction of the original price. Worried about finding your size? We have a fantastic selection of dresses from size 0 to 28. Check out all of our dresses with sizes and prices on our Facebook page at Dress for Less – ESC Raiders. Once dresses hit the Facebook page, they are ready to sell, so you can start shopping now for the perfect dress for East Sac’s 2017 prom theme – Hollywood.

Dress for Less

         We’re on the hunt for dresses again!  It’s hard to believe, but prom will be here before you know it.  Many girls don’t want to spend upwards of $300 on a dress they’ll wear only once, so we need your gently used dresses! Dress sale is scheduled for January 2017.

         Anyone from surrounding areas wishing to sell a dress – any type in any size – can pay $5 to include your dress in our sale.  The dress must be a current style, clean, and in good condition.  You choose the sale price.  When your dress sells, you get ALL of the sale price money sent to you via check within a week of the sale.  If your dress does not sell, we will continue advertising it on our Facebook page (Dress for Less – ESC Raiders) and putting it in future sales unless we hear directly that you prefer to pick it up.

  You are also welcome to simply donate a dress and forgo the profit.  This you can do without paying the $5 entry fee.  We will also be collecting free will donations of shoes, jewelry, and purses.  No donation fee required, but you will also not make a profit from shoes and accessories.

Please find and like us on Facebook to stay informed about collections and sale date in January and help us spread the word!

Reading Goals
2015-16 Reading Goal: 100% of the students in grades 3-11 will be proficient or advanced on the Iowa Assessment-Reading.
 
East Sac County Schools did not meet their reading goal for 2015-2016 in any grade 3 through 11.
 
Long-Range Goal for East Sac County Schools:
(Pending School Board approval and as reported in the Iowa Department of Education state CASA report):
By the year 2020 95% of students in grades 2 through 6 will be at or above benchmark on the FAST Adaptive Reading (aReading) assessment.
 
 
The annual goal for the 2016-2017 school year:
(Pending School Board approval and as reported in the Iowa Department of Education state CASA report):
In the spring of 2016, 65% of students in grades 2 through 4 were at or above benchmark on the FAST Adaptive Reading (aReading) assessment. By the spring of 2017, we will increase that percentage to 75%.
 
Graduation Rate
 
The state developed a new way of reporting graduation rates starting with the class of 2010.  This data comes from the Department of Education and is always one year behind the other data reported in the Annual Progress Report.  One way that is reported is with the group of freshmen that started school together and graduated in the spring of 2015.  With that group of students we had a graduation rate of 97.10% compared to 90.78% statewide. East Sac County had no fifth-year student’s graduate in 2015.

Teacher Leadership and Compensation
You may have heard something about Teacher Leadership and Compensation (TLC)  this year. TLC, an initiative from the State of Iowa, puts teachers in leadership positions in order to improve classroom practices and increase student achievement.  These practices will be done through collaboration between the teachers and their coaches. The coaches will be observing, using feedback, and collaborating on teaching strategies, lessons, and assessments with licensed teaching staff.
These are the new leadership positions that ESC teachers filled when school started this fall.
  • Instructional Leader-this is a full time position. Responsibilities include helping plan and deliver professional development in partnership with the building principals, analyzing district data, and individual coaching with classroom teachers. The Instructional Leader is Sammie Bruce.
  • Teacher Leader-this is a half-time position. These teachers will be in their classroom for half of the day and coaching teachers for the other half of the day. They also will help plan and deliver professional development in partnership with the building principals. The Teacher Leaders are Tammy Vine, Abbie Julin, and Judy Miller.
  • PLC Coach-PLC stands for Professional Learning Community. These are teams of teachers who work together on educational /instructional practices. The PLC coaches are responsible for facilitating these meetings.  The PLC coaches are Lisa Kies, Nancy Handley, Abbie Julin, Michaela Engel, Jill McGinty-Dawson, Bonnie Mueggenberg, Eric McCollough, and Marie Buse.
  • Mentors-work with first and second year teachers as well as new to the district teachers.  They help guide the new teachers through collaboration and feedback to more effective practices and skills.  Mentors are Lanice Kock, Becky Dettmann, Tammy Vine, Larissa Rupnow, Marie Buse, Bonnie Mueggenberg, Jill McGinty-Dawson, Sammie Bruce, Judy Miller, Abbie Julin, Kerri Eichhorn, Michaela Engel, Gretchen Hoefling, Cathy Frohardt, and Nancy Stark.
  • Model Teachers-these teachers will create videos of effective teaching practices that other teachers can view. This gives teachers a chance to observe and learn how to use the strategy before they implement it into their classroom. The model teachers are Teresa Bettin, Lisa Kies, Abbie Julin, Tammy Vine, and Judy Miller.
ESC has never had the number of people that have time to allow for this type of work to happen. The coaches are very excited for this opportunity to work together to grow and learn.

FAFSA—College Financial Aid
Big Changes for 2017-2018
 
What’s changing for 2017–2018?
  • You’ll be able to submit your FAFSA earlier. The 2017-2018 FAFSA will now be available and you can file as early as October 1, 2016 rather than beginning on January 1, 2017. The earlier submission date will be a permanent change, enabling you to complete and submit a FAFSA as early as October 1 every year.
  • You’ll use earlier income and tax information. Beginning with the 2017–2018 FAFSA, students and their families will be required to report income and tax information from the federal tax form from two years prior. For example, on the 2017–2018 FAFSA, you—and your parent(s), as appropriate—will report your 2015 income and tax information, rather than your 2016 income and tax information.
  • The chart below shows the changes when a student can submit a FAFSA and the required year’s income to be provided:
When a Student Is Attending College (School Year) When a Student Can Submit a FAFSA Which Year's Income Information Is Required
July 1, 2015 - June 30, 2016 January 1, 2015 - June 30, 2016 2014
July 1, 2016 - June 30, 2017 January 1, 2016 - June 30, 2017 2015
July 1, 2017 - June 30, 2018 October 1, 2016 - June 30, 2018 2015
July 1, 2018 - June 30, 2019 October 1, 2017 - June 30, 2019 2016
How will the changes benefit me?
  • No more tax estimates. Because the FAFSA will ask for older income and tax information, you and your parents, if applicable, will probably already have done your taxes by the time you fill out your FAFSA, and you won’t need to estimate your tax information and then go back into the FAFSA later to update it.
  • Import tax information directly from IRS. You and your parents, if applicable, may be able to use the IRS Data Retrieval Tool (IRS DRT) to automatically import your tax information into your FAFSA. (Learn about the IRS DRT at StudentAid.ed.gov/irsdrt.)
  • Improved ability to meet state and college financial aid deadlines. Because the FAFSA is available earlier, you may feel less pressure due to having more time to explore and understand your financial aid options and apply for aid before your state’s and college’s financial aid deadlines. Also, you will likely receive financial aid eligibility information in advance of college admission decision deadline, encouraging more thoughtful and informed enrollment decisions.
Will state and college financial aid deadlines be earlier since the FAFSA is launching earlier?
  • Most state and college deadlines will remain approximately the same as in 2016–17. However, several states that offer first come, first served financial aid may change their deadlines from “as soon as possible after January 1” to “as soon as possible after October 1.” So, as always, it’s important that you check your state and college financial aid deadlines so that you don’t miss out on any aid. State deadlines are on fafsa.ed.gov; college deadlines are on colleges’ websites.
Can I choose to report 2016 information if my family’s financial situation has changed since our 2015 taxes were filed?
  • You must report the information the FAFSA asks for. If your family’s income has changed substantially since the 2015 tax year, contact the financial aid office at your college about your family’s situation.
Note: The FAFSA asks for parent marital status as of the day you fill it out. So, if your parents are married now but weren’t in 2015 (and, therefore, didn’t file taxes as married), they’ll need to add their new spouse’s income to your FAFSA. Similarly, if they filed their 2015 taxes as married but they’re no longer married when you fill out the FAFSA, they’ll need to subtract their spouse’s income.
Will I receive financial aid offers earlier if I apply earlier?
  • Not necessarily; some colleges will make aid offers earlier while others won’t. If you’re thinking of transferring to another college, you might want to look at the College Scorecard at CollegeScorecard.ed.gov to compare costs at different colleges while you wait for your aid offers to arrive. Note: You should be aware that the maximum Federal Pell Grant for 2017–18 won’t be known until early 2017, so keep in mind that even if you do receive an aid offer early, it could change due to various factors.
How will I know what colleges to list on the FAFSA if I haven’t decided which colleges I’ll be applying to?
  • List any colleges you’re considering applying to, and the FAFSA processor will send your FAFSA information to them. Later, if you decide to apply to additional colleges that you didn’t list on the FAFSA, you can log back in at fafsa.ed.gov and add those colleges.
Where can I get more information about—and help with—the FAFSA?
  • Visit StudentAid.ed.gov/fafsa; and remember, as you fill out your FAFSA at fafsa.ed.gov, you can refer to help text for every question and (during certain times of day) chat online with a customer service representative.

Students and parents are hereby notified that the content of the video taped may be used in a student disciplinary proceeding.

Videotapes will only be retained if necessary for use in a student disciplinary proceeding involving their child.

Video cameras are also used at and in East Sac County High School, East Sac County Middle School, and at East Sac County Elementary Schools (Sac City and Wall Lake).  Content of the videotapes may be used in a student disciplinary proceeding.

Sexual Harassment/Sexual Abuse Reporting

Annual Notice of Policy No. 506.1E9 – Family Educational Rights and Privacy Act

The Family Education Rights and Privacy Act (FERPA) affords parents and students over 18 years of age (“eligible students”) certain rights with respect to the student’s education records.  They are:

1)    The right to inspect and review the student’s education records within 45 days of the day the district received a request for access.

 Parents or eligible students should submit to the school principal (or appropriate school official) a written request that identifies the record(s) they wish to inspect.  The principal will make arrangements for access and notify the parent or eligible student of the time and place where the records may be inspected. 

2)    The right to request the amendment of the student’s education records that the parent or eligible student believes are inaccurate or misleading or in violation of the student’s privacy rights.

 Parents or eligible students may ask the school district to amend a record that they believe is inaccurate or misleading.  They should write the school principal, clearly identify the part of the record they want changed, and specify why it is inaccurate or misleading.

If the district decides not to amend the record as requested by the parent or eligible student, the district will notify the parent or eligible student of the decision and advise them of their right to a hearing regarding the request for amendment.  Additional information regarding the hearing procedures will be provided to the parent or eligible student when notified of the right to a hearing.

 3)    The right to consent to disclosures of personally identifiable information contained in the student’s education records, except to the extent the FERPA authorized disclosure without consent.

 One exception that permits disclosure without consent is disclosure to school officials with legitimate education interests.  A school official is a person employed by the district as an administrator, supervisor, instructor, or support staff member (including health or medical staff and law enforcement unit personnel); a person serving on the School Board; a person or company with whom the district has contracted to perform a special task (such as an attorney, auditor, AEA employees, medical consultant, or therapist); or a parent or student serving on an official committee, such as a disciplinary or grievance committee or student assistance team, or assisting another school official in performing his or her task.

 A school official has a legitimate educational interest if the official needs to review an education record in order to fulfill his or her professional responsibility.

Military Recruitment

The No Child Left Behind Act of 2001 (section 9528) requires that the high school must provide military recruiters access to student names, address, and telephone listings.  Parents or students may request this information not be provided without written parental/guardian consent and districts must comply with all such requests.


Open Enrollment

Parents and guardians considering the use of the open enrollment option to enroll their child or children in another public school district in the state of Iowa should be aware of the following dates:

 

  • March 1, 2017

Last date for regular open enrollment requests for the 2016-17 school year.

  • September 1, 2016

Last date for open enrollment requests for entering kindergarten students for the 2015-16 school year.

  • September 1

Parents who have good cause as defined by law for failing to meet the March 1st deadline may make an open enrollment request by September 1.

 The parent/guardian is required to indicate on the form if the request is for a pupil requiring special education, as provided by Iowa Code chapter 256B.

 Parents/guardians of open enrolled students whose income falls below 60% of the federal poverty guidelines are eligible for transportation assistance.  This may be in the form of actual transportation or in the form of a cash stipend.

 Parents should be aware that open enrollment may result in the loss of athletic eligibility.

 For further details, contact the Superintendent’s office.

Asbestos

To:      Parents and Employees

Re:       The Presence of Asbestos Within District Buildings

Date:    7/2008

The Institute for Environmental Assessment was requested by the East Sac County Schools to review and prepare an asbestos management plan identifying the presence of asbestos within the district's school buildings.  The Institute's federally certified inspectors, planners, public health and engineering consultants worked in conjunction with school administrative personnel to identify asbestos-containing building products.  In addition, the Institute for Environmental Assessment has performed a re-inspection as required by the AHERA regulations.  Asbestos is a mineral fiber associated with increased levels of disease when inhaled.  The risk rating procedures which the Institute used in commenting on the asbestos were developed in conjunction with national experts in the area of industrial medicine, toxicology, industrial hygiene and engineering.  After reviewing the characteristics of the districts' buildings during the

Re-inspection, we prepared an updated management plan for each building, a copy of which is maintained along with the initial plan at the district’s central office and also in the office for each major building describing the asbestos plan and the intended response.

Asbestos is dangerous only when it is broken loose from building material into fine, dust-like fibers and inhaled.  The district is free of dangerous asbestos at this time.

The district implemented its management plan and has been conducting a six-month periodic surveillance of all asbestos-containing building materials.  This periodic surveillance and the re-inspection are conducted to provide a continuous assessment to assure safety conscious management of asbestos-containing materials.

The detailed plan and updated information for each building is open to public review.  If you have any questions or comments, please contact Steve Nuetzman, Director of Building/Grounds, at 665-5000; he also serves as East Sac County CSD Asbestos Program Manager.

East Sac County Schools Problem-Solving Process:

Prairie Lakes AEA and the East Sac County Schools utilize a collaborative problem-solving process to address academic behavior concerns of students.  The problem-solving team includes teachers, parents, students, administrators, and support service providers.  This team describes a problem situation, identifies needs, designs strategies to meet those needs, then implements and evaluates those strategies.

If at some point, it is determined that the strategy a student needs is of such a nature that special education services are needed, AEA and district staff provide specially designed instruction and/or support services.  Each student identified in need of special education service has a problem-solving team designed to identify modifications and interventions that will best meet his/her needs.  The scopes of services are reflected in the expertise of the staff assigned to your school district.

Annual Notice of Policy No. 505.1 - STUDENT PROGRESS REPORTS AND CONFERENCES

Students will receive a progress report at the end of each nine-week grading period.  Students, who are doing poorly, and their parents, are notified prior to the end of the semester in order to have an opportunity to improve their grade.  The board encourages the notification of students who have made marked improvement prior to the end of the semester.

Parent-teacher conferences will be held twice each year at the elementary, middle school, and high school.

Parents, teachers, or principals may request a conference for students in grades kindergarten through twelve in addition to the scheduled conference time.  Parents and students are encouraged to discuss the student's progress or other matters with the student's teacher.

Annual Notice of Policy No. 505.8 - Parental Involvement

Parental involvement is an important component in a student’s success in school.  The board encourages parents to become involved in their child’s education to ensure the child’s academic success.  The school district will hold annually a Title I parent meeting.

The superintendent is responsible for notifying parents of this policy annually or within a reasonable time after it has been amended during the school year.  It is the responsibility of the superintendent to develop administrative regulations regarding this policy

It is the policy of the East Sac County Community School District not to discriminate on the basis of race, color, national origin, sex, disability, religion, creed, age (for employment), marital status (for programs), sexual orientation, gender identity and socioeconomic status (for programs) in its educational programs and its employment practices.
