Board Approves the CCSD59 Strategic Plan Focus Areas

Monday night the board approved the fall 2017 Focus Areas that align to the Strategic Plan. These areas of focus provide actions and measures that will be deployed at the onset of the school year, and the approval of the focus areas will enable schools and departments to develop local goals aligned to the focus areas specifically within the area of student growth.

Board Approves the Student Device Refresh Purchase Plan

The board approved to refresh student devices and carrying cases for grades 3-8. In the fall, students in grades 3-8 will receive an updated Chromebook that has the capability to function as both a Chromebook and a tablet. This will take the place of the two devices students in grades 3-8 have had access to over the past three years as the new device will now be able to perform all the functions that two devices previously performed.

A plan for student access to technology in grades PreK-2 is continuing to be developed, and the board will continue to have discussions about addressing the needs of students in grades PreK-2 at the August 14 meeting.

Board Presented with Assessments for CCSD59 Students

The administrative team in charge of CCSD59 assessments reviewed the role and purpose of adopted assessments, current results, and the method of utilizing data via the multi-tiered system of support (MTSS) process. A discussion was held related to annual assessment targets and goals in the areas of growth and achievement.

The presentation helped to deepen understanding of CCSD59’s overall assessment program, current results, how data is used as part of the MTSS process, and helped to begin developing growth goals and targets for the 17-18 school year.

Board Authorizes Process to Proceed with Bond Sale

The board approved the resolution to proceed with the bond sale process. The process allows CCSD59 to work with the district’s bond broker and attorney to work on issuing bonds not to exceed $20 million.

This resolution is not the actual authorization of the sale of bonds, which will be recommended at the September 11, 2017, board meeting. If approved by the board, these bond proceeds will offset construction costs for several construction projects while also ensuring the district’s financial stability, continuation of student support and initiatives, and protection against the uncertainties of state and federal funding.
