 Highlights of the Sept 26th Board of Education Meeting

Below are highlights from the September 26th Board of Education meeting. Please note that these are just highlights and should not be considered the official minutes.

Dr. Vic Klopfenstein, with Friendship Force International, and several educators from the Ukraine stopped by the district to visit with administrators, tour the High School, Stadium, and Aquatic Center; and visit with the Board. Earlier in the day they visited Grant Wood Area Education Association and Four Oaks and also met with Iowa Regent Dr. Katie Mulholland. The Ukrainian educators ranged from teachers to a superintendent and are visiting the States as part of the Open World Leadership Conference to gain a better understanding of various school systems across the globe. It was very interesting to learn that Ukrainian schools are already participating in Blended Learning; which is a pathway that the Linn-Mar District is currently reviewing.

Board members shared highlights of their recent visit to Indian Creek Elementary that included their excitement over the staff’s progress with Positive Behavior Interventions and Supports (PBIS), the development of a Science, Technology, Engineering, and Mathematics (STEM) Center in their media center, and the enthusiasm and dedication of the entire staff.

The Special Education Advisory is planning a family night for March 7th that will focus on the theme of making connections for families with students with special learning needs. There will be informative breakout sessions as well as information booths. More information will be share... more
