Board hears reports and
updates at recent I-G meeting
Members of the Iowa-Grant School Board mainly heard reports and updates on school and district needs at their regular meeting Monday night.
Superintendent Linda Erickson told the board they needed to go out on their own for insurance as the eight-school core group could not use their past insurance agency. They are waiting to hear from CESA 3 about the plan.
She also said the school is changing its website to assist the visually impaired. They need to research font size, black and white contrast, colors, auto resizing and translations to other languages. It will cost about $2,300 to switch.
Erickson also said they are implementing a curriculum mapping system for K-12 with a data warehouse, where they can import their own local data. It will be paid for by Title 1. That will enable parents and teachers to view only one child's records at parent/teacher conferences.
She presented a certificate to Mr. Gotto from a CESA meeting, where the school was given an Advanced Placement Class Award.
The board also presented certificates of appreciation to Steve Christianson and Shawn Merkle, who were both defeated in the recent April election.
Erickson also said she met with Senator Marklein about issues facing school districts.
Principal reports showed each level of the district is busy with near end of the year projects and field trips.
Gotto reported there were 31 Solo & Ensemble kids going to state and four in choir going on also.
It was approved to add $59,500 for more roof repair and to purchase a new water heater for $10,500. The roof project timeline is June 5-August 1....
