EPS ‘Blue Ribbon’ Assembly to be Attended by Governor Heineman

November 21, 2012 by lmorgan · Comments Off 

A public program will be held Wednesday, November 28, in the gymnasium at Elgin Public School to celebrate the elementary school being designated as a ‘National Blue Ribbon School.’
The program will begin at 10:30 a.m. Among the dignitaries scheduled to be present for the program are Nebraska Governor Dave Heineman, State Senator Kate Sullivan and State Commissioner of Education Dr. Roger Breed.
In September, the school was just one of six across Nebraska to receive the designation of a National Blue Ribbon School from the U.S. Department of Education. The award honors schools whose students achieve at very high levels or make significant improvements on their levels of achievement.
Other schools recognized were Omaha Skutt Catholic High School, Potter Dix Elementary School, Norwood Park Elementary School in Lincoln, Mount Michael Benedictine School in Elkhorn and Bloomfield Junior-Senior High School.
Altogether, 269 schools across the country were recognized with the honor.

School Board Approves Technology Purchases

November 21, 2012 by lmorgan · Comments Off 

Meeting Tuesday night, the District #18 Board of Education acted on several things of an ‘electronic’ nature.
The board approved a plan to purchase laptop computers to be used by junior high students. The computers, Dell re-conditioned computers with warranty, will be used by students in school only. They are expected to be available for use when school convenes after the Christmas break.
On another ‘electronic’ matter, the board approved the purchase of iPads for certified staff.
The board established a policy for high school students to take home laptop computers. Under the new policy which was approved at the meeting, the student must ‘sign out’ for the computer and so must their parents. Prior to the students being allowed to take the computers home, their parents will be required to attend a parent meeting where the program will be further explained.
Also during the meeting, the school board approved a mission statement for the school. It is, “Creating an environment where all students will learn.”
Executive session — The board went into executive session to discuss the superintendent’s evaluation and contract negotiations with certified staff. No action was taken after the board exited the closed session.
