Fishin around VASD

Noelle Christenson, 3, of Verona, snags the catch of the day at a booth for
the Seventeenth Radish, a local childrens activity studio, at the first annual
Verona Area School District Kids Expo. The event brought vendors from the
Verona and Fitchburg areas to Verona Area High School, where families could
learn about local resources and find out what options theyll have as they
enroll their children in elementary school in VASD.

Survey results to be revealed


More than 3,000 answered
referendum questions
SCOTT GIRARD
Unified Newspaper Group

Data revealed next week will likely


guide the Verona Area School boards
decisions in the coming months ahead
of a potential $200 million-plus April
2017 referendum.
The board will hold a community
meeting Monday, Nov. 14, to unveil
results from the community survey on
the referendum, which was mailed out
in mid-October.
Monday was the survey deadline,
and the district posted a note on its
website and sent an email to parents
saying more than 3,000 people took
the survey and more than 400 attended community meetings. The survey

questions generally sought to determine the level of approval for various options, which combined could
add around $400 to the tax bill on a
$200,000 home from the otherwise
lowered tax rate.
The referendum would include
funds for a new high school, renovations at other schools and a new elementary school.
The district held two community presentations Oct. 17 and 18, just

before the survey reached mailboxes,


to help answer any questions residents had before they took the survey.
District officials hope to gauge the
community support for the different
options to ensure any referendum they
ultimately put on the April ballot is
likely to pass.
Options outlined on the survey
include a new high school on land at
the West End, along with repurposing Badger Ridge Middle School into
an elementary and the current Verona Area High School into a middle
school, for $153.4 million.
The survey also asked residents
about potential additions to the base
plan: an auditorium at the new high
school ($9.4 million), outdoor athletic
competition fields there ($6.5 million)
and a swimming pool ($12.5 million).

Verona Area International School students performed better on all standardized exams than their
Verona Area School District peers in recent years.
But the school also has
a 13.5 percent open-enrollment rate, well above
any other school in the
district and surpassing
what superintendent Dean
Gorrell said was the districts general threshold
of 10 percent at any given
school.
That contrast sums
up the data presented to
Verona Area School board
members Monday night
that will help guide their
decision over the next
few weeks on whether to
approve a new five-year
charter agreement with the
Chinese-language immersion school. The current
charter agreement for the
K-5 school, from 2012,
expires in June 2017.
It could even lead to a

more philosophical conversation among the board


whether they believe
charters should be funded at the same rate as the
neighborhood elementaries, which they are currently.
Equal doesnt mean
equitable. We all know

Town of Verona

District considers exit interviews

Commission to review
zoning proposal

SCOTT GIRARD
Unified Newspaper Group

Verona Area School District officials could send out exit interview
questionnaires as soon as this school
year to teachers who are leaving the
district.
VASD director of human resources
Jason Olson told the school boards
personnel committee Monday that
surveys would also be given to new
teachers who are returning, to establish what the district is doing to successfully engage its staff.
While HR staff will have access
to the individual surveys, they will
report to the board at the end of the
year with a summary of the data to

help analyze why staff is leaving.


The topic came up earlier this year
when board member Noah Roberts,
elected to the board in April, questioned if the district had any way to
measure why teachers might leave.
Olson said they have always had
voluntary exit interviews, but there
was no system in place for them.
Questions include reasons for leaving, areas of dissatisfaction, a letter
grade for the district as an employer
and an assessment of certain topics
important to the district.
The committee ran out of time to
discuss the proposed questions, but
Olson indicated HR would likely
move ahead with the idea unless anyone protested.

Letters to the editor

VAIS provides tremendous value


We are deeply troubled by
the Verona Area School Boards
proposal to eliminate VAIS. This
school is an incredible feather
in the cap for the VASD and it
provides tremendous value for
the community. Any student can
attend, and this school represents a
fantastic way for parents to provide
language education for their young
children at no additional cost.
A great body of literature is
emerging that demonstrates the
far-reaching benefits of language
education. A study from the University of Wisconsin demonstrated
that immersion schooling facilitated verbal memory and verbal
learning (Kaushanskaya, 2014).
Another study demonstrated that
students enrolled in language
immersion programs benefited
from enhanced reading and math
skills (Marian, 2013). These benefits have been found to be applicable to at-risk readers where language immersion resulted in faster
growth and higher final status in
reading comprehension (Kruk,
2012). These learners are also
more efficient at resolving mental
competition and are therefore able
to better focus.
Why would we not want to
extend these benefits to our young
learners? Mandarin is spoken by
over 1 billion people and is the
most widely spoken first language
in the world. The economy of China continues to expand and having
Mandarin speakers within our

community to compete in a global


economy increases the chances
of successful business and other
professional interactions. Many
forward-thinking states are pushing
for Chinese language education
as they see it as a way to improve
their chances of increasing business partnerships with Chinese
industry.
President Obama stressed the
importance of Chinese language
education with his 1 million
strong initiative that is designed
to increase the number of Chinese
speaking Americans in an effort
to increase our success with economic partnerships with China.
Chinese culture is over 5,000 years
old and offers a different perspective than our standard Eurocentric
world view. And finally, the unique
character and tonal nature of the
Chinese language make early
exposure and immersion incredibly vital to obtain fluency. In fact,
research has shown that fourth- and
fifth-graders enrolled in Mandarin
immersion programs perform as
well or better than high school
students enrolled in fourth and fifth
level Advanced Placement Mandarin courses. We propose that the
Verona school district continues
and increases their efforts to support VAIS by renewing its charter
for an additional five years.
Kristopher and Carrie
Schroeder,
City of Verona

Travel that should have


been done yesterday
T
his year, more than ever,
have I seen the importance
of seeing the world, experiencing a new culture, and doing
it darn quick before life gets too
complicated.
Granted, there really isnt a
bad time to pack up and immerse
yourself in a foreign culture, but
with recent world events theres
no doubt in my mind cultural travel experiences
should be at an
all-time high
right now
especially for
young people
who can use
that experience
to have an
impact on the
Dresser
planet.
Weve seen
terrorist attacks all over the world,
countries backing out of unions,
and presidential candidates making isolationist statements. Wars
have raged on, a refugee crisis
has gotten out of control, and
silent drug wars have campaigned
throughout Latin America, with
the press often frightened to do
their jobs.
This move towards unsharing,
isolationism, and a mine is mine
attitude is beginning to swing a
little off-balance. There still needs
to be globalism; we still need to
share and trade with each other.
We cant do that if were all
sitting at home following the lead
on our social media newsfeeds
and watching the news outlets.
The media is either too left or
too right, and if there is anything
left in the middle, it is woefully
underfunded and boxed out by
politicians, lobbyists, and corporations that want to paint their
picture of the world.
The way to combat this is
through travel. And not just within

our own country.


We need to get out and take a
look from outside the bubble of
the Greatest Nation on Earth.
And we need to do it now. There
is no time to waste. We just
claimed competence by default
from the British, and in a few
months we might give that title
right back.
In all my international travels,
the only thing Ive ever regretted was waiting so long to get
my passport and experience the
world.
I was 20 when I started. If only
Id gone when I was 18 or even
17, my world would have been
blown upside down. Instead of
going into college undecided, I
would have had a goal, and a plan
to reach it. I wouldnt have spent
thousands staying in a dorm room
my freshmen year, and I probably
would have finished school within
three years.
I still did well despite getting a
late start, but I missed a few open
doors that were no longer open to
me, even at 20.
Cultural travel was and still is
a rush. Ive witnessed countless
tingling moments where there
is a cultural exchange that words
and emotions just cant describe.
One example is from when
digital cameras were still cutting
edge. At the time, shutter film
barely existed in Costa Rica, and
it was the wildest thing when
you would take a picture with the
locals and then they would sheepishly ask afterward if they could
see it.
Some didnt even realize this
technology was possible and were
puzzled when asked if they wanted
to see the picture. You can see the
picture, really? they would ask.
That was a moment. That was
enlightening. That brought understanding.

Ten years later, everyone is on


par with digital because of smartphone penetration and many dont
even know what film cameras are
or were. Costa Ricans caught up
so quickly on that technology simply because people got interested
and demand grew.
Those stuck in the past imagine
Costa Rica a heavily rain-forested,
third world developing island. But
its not true.
Last year, I had the opportunity
to take Costa Ricans to the United
States and everyone we talked
to we asked the same question:
Do you know where Costa Rica
is? About half the time people
were stumped, and then when we
started giving them hints, their
bias and lack of knowledge began
to unknowingly show: Do you
have cars? Is there Internet/cell
phones?
Although they were innocent,
curiosity driven questions, this
was at times puzzling for the Costa Ricans. They are proud of being
Central Americas gem with no
army, top notch universal health
care and the highest level of education in the region, plus Audis
and iPhones.
But again, it showed how powerful travel can be. Getting outside
your bubble and seeing things
from afar will rock your world and
make you tingle in indescribable
ways. It doesnt matter what you
do, as long as you are outside your
comfort zone and experiencing a
new culture.
Dont read any more blogs or
social media posts or watch the
news for your understanding of the
world. Go get it and experience it
yourself. And do it now, before too
many opportunities pass you by.

Area High School graduate living

PBF Studio owner Jennifer
Blake said that while the gym
has hosted similar events in
the past, this is the first fundraiser for Team Rubicon, as
well as the first time the event

has been expanded on this


scale.
This year we felt driven to support Team Rubicon
as their work means a lot to
all of us, Blake wrote in an
email to the Press. Burn Fitness is founded by father and
son firefighters and many of
PBF Studios instructors have
family in different branches
of service as well.
Friday will focus on
seniors, with Zumba, strength
and yoga classes throughout
the morning. A coffee social
and lunch from 11a.m. to
12:30p.m., and dietitian Kara
Hoerr will lead a discussion
on nutrition after lunch. Saturday will feature class demonstrations for families, including strength and conditioning,

pilates/yoga and kid-friendly


Zumba classes. At 11a.m.,
fire trucks will be available
for tours and brats will also
be available, with all sales
benefiting Team Rubicon.
The event will wind down on
Sunday with two more classes starting at 8a.m.
Tickets for the raffle drawing can be purchased all
weekend before winners are
drawn at 1:30p.m. Sunday
(all will be notified by phone).
Blake said the event will also
feature an Honor Wall that
participants can post thank
you notes and photos of their
hero on as they drop in.

Waging Peace
Our society often glories in war and the waging
of war, and we justifiably praise the virtues of the
good soldier, whose courage and fighting skills
help to keep us safe and protect us from our enemies. But should we not also praise those who
devote their lives to peace and who try to find
peaceful means of resolving disputes? Wise Generals agree that war should be a last resort, and in
our personal lives too we should find every means
of avoiding conflict before coming to blows or
even engaging in verbal warfare. Are you a source
of peace and calmness at work and in your home
or a source of strife and division? There are those
who seem to thrive on strife and like to argue and
sow division wherever they go. If you cant turn
them around with a kind word or a soft look, then it
might be best to just leave them alone. Its hard to
have a fight all by yourself, though some people try
hard to do just that. Strive for peace in your life and
see if it doesnt spread to those around you.
Christopher Simon, Metro News Service
Make every effort to live in peace with everyone
and to be holy; without holiness no one will see the
Lord.

VASD holds first Kids Expo


While many residents
already regard Verona as
a kid-focused community,
the first Kids Expo provided about 40 area schools,
businesses and organizations with children-related
services a new opportunity
for outreach on Saturday,
Nov. 5, at Verona Area High
School.
Organized by the Verona
Area School District, the
expo required each booth to
have a child-friendly activity, so kids ventured from
booth to booth breaking
boards with Infinity Martial

Arts, banging on the drums


with Music Well, LLC,
playing high-tech games
with Stoner Prairie and
Sugar Creek elementary
schools and more. The first
400 kids to arrive also took
home a Little Wildcat
backpack.
VA S D e a r l y l e a r n i n g
coordinator Jennifer Skibba
told the Press last month the
district hopes to make the
event an annual occurrence
after seeing how successful
similar events have been in
other parts of the state.

*Capitol Banks Home Equity Line of Credit includes a 1.99% Annual Percentage Rate (APR) for the rst 9 months following closing for
qualied applicants. Variable APR as low as 4.00% thereafter. After the introductory period ends, the APR will vary to reect changes in an
index, but will not be lower than 4.00%. Without this interlocutory APR, using the current index rate of 3.50% and a margin of 0%, the APR
would be the minimum rate of 4.00%. Using the index rate and a margin of 2.50%, the APR would be 6.00%. This introductory rate requires a
new home equity line of credit, secured by a rst or second lien on the home, this credit plus the amount of other credit secured by the home
do not exceed 80% of the property value, that you already own the home, that you maintain a qualied Capitol Bank checking account during
the term of the line of credit. How your rate is determined: The index that is used to determine the APR is the Prime Rate published in the
Midwest Edition of the Wall Street Journal. As of October 7, 2016 the Prime Rate was 3.5%. After the 9 month introductory APR period
ends, the APR is variable and will consist of the Prime Rate plus a margin ranging from 0% to 2.5% depending upon the occupancy status of
the property, the combined loan to value ratio, maintaining a Capitol Bank checking account and your creditworthiness; however, the APR
will not be less than 4.00% or greater 18.00% under any circumstances. Any APR rate changes on your billing statement will be determined
as disclosed above. See your billing statement for actual APR rate changes and effective dates. Other charges: An annual fee of $35.00
applies to all accounts and will be assessed on the anniversary date of the loan. Appraisal, title costs, recording fees, and ood determination
fees range from $200 to $1,000. Insurance on the property securing this loan is required and payable by the borrower. Other requirements:
This offer is only valid in the State of Wisconsin and is subject to credit approval and property evaluation. Proceeds for this account may not
be used to pay off an existing Capitol Bank line of credit unless an increase of $10,000 in line availability is established. Limited time offer
subject to change. Consult one of our mortgage lenders at (608) 836-1616 for current rate and conditions. Member FDIC.

Ten months ago, Sophie Henshue was barely able to walk.


Saturday the junior helped
the Verona Area/Mount Horeb
girls swimming team qualify
a program-best 16 individuals
and all three relays for this Saturdays WIAA Division 1 state
swimming and diving meet.
Henshue, who missed twoand-a-half months of her Badger Aquatic club season due to
a hip flexor injury, had a more
than four-second PR in the 500yard freestyle Saturday at the
Middleton sectional meet.
Im over the top, ecstatic
with how I swam today, Henshue said. In January ... I had Senior Kristi Larsen finished third in the 100-yard breaststroke Saturday at the WIAA Division 1 Middleton
sectional. She qualified for state in 1 minute, 5.36 seconds. She is seeded fifth and will swim in the fastest

Girls golf

All five varsity


golfers earn
Academic All-State
ANTHONY IOZZO
Assistant sports editor

The Verona Area High School


girls golf team was just a few
strokes away from making it to
state this past season, and a big
reason why was how the team
improved from the start of the
season.
That usually means not only
p r a c t i c i n g bu t s t u d y i n g g o l f
courses and making smart decisions on the course to remain
consistent and escape the dreaded
quadruple (or worse) bogey.
This past week, all five varsity
girls earned Academic All-State
honors for their work in the classroom and on the course during the
season.
Senior Kailey Olson, juniors
Lauren Shorter, Courtney Shorter and Alexis Gaillard and sophomore Nicole Thomas all had
GPAs over 3.25 to make the Golf
Coaches Association of Wisconsin list.
The girls are also in the race to
receive the Academic All-State
team award with all five girls
having high GPAs, which will be
announced in February 2017.
There were 325 girls that made
the list from 96 high schools
across the state. The average GPA
for all the girls was 3.79.

to tape my leg up and limp


my way through school. I
almost had to be on crutches.
I was just happy that I
was given the opportunity
to swim here today.
H e n s h u e s t i m e o f
5 : 0 4 . 0 1 s e t a n ew VA /
MH benchmark, breaking UW-Madison swimming and former teammate
B e a t a N e l s o n s s c h o o l
record.
I respect Beata so
much. Shes been one of
my closest friends for the
past two years, Henshue
said. Shes the one that
encouraged me to go and
get that record when she
was off in college.
Though head coach Bill
Wuerger said the Wildcats
all miss Nelson, whom he
called, the most talented
swimmer our program will
probably ever have, the
girls took it as a challenge
to still have a great team.
T h ey wo r ke d r e a l l y
hard to make that happen
and the entire team swam
p h e n o m e n a l l y t o d a y,
he said. Several times,
I looked up at the scoreboard and chills went up
a n d d ow n m y s p i n e . I
couldnt believe how fast
they were.
Sophomore Grace Bennin and senior Maizie
Seidl each won a pair of
sectional titles and junior
Maggie Nunn dove to her
third sectional diving title
as part of a record-setting
weekend for the Verona
Area/Mount Horeb girls
swimming program.
Henshue also finished
fourth in the 200 free
(1:54.26). She is seeded
sixth in the 500 free and
14th in the 200 at state.
And yet, the host Middleton Cardinals, ranked
second on the Wisconsin Interscholastic Swim
C o a c h e s A s s o c i a t i o n s
Division 1 poll, broke a
couple of VA/MH relay
records and held off the
fifth-ranked Wildcats 377363 in the states fastest
sectional.
Madison Memorial
(270), Madison West (261)
and Sun Prairie (235)
rounded out a competitive
top five.
Competing in the Big
Eight in general, whether its Middleton, Madison West, Memorial and
Sun Prairie swimming
against those teams all
year prepare us for a meet
like sectionals, Wuerger
said. Some of those Badger Conference teams that
dont see the same kind of
competition week in and
week out dont do as well
in a meet like this.
Bennin won the 50 free
in a season-best :23.51 and
later broke the Middleton
pool record in 1:04.04 to
win the 100 breaststroke.
I was pretty close to
that pool record last year,
so its nice to know that
Im still improving, she
said. I think it sets me up
really well for state next
weekend.
Bennin enters the state
meet with the fastest time
in the state in the 50 free
and is seeded second
behind defending state
champion of Lauren Stigler (1:03.92) of Muskego
in the 100 breaststroke.

Anything can happen
in the 50 free, she said.
Someone from lane eight
could end up winning.
Thats part of the excitement of it.
Bennin finished fourth
in the 50 free last year and
.16 seconds behind Stigler for second in the 100
breast.
I was kind of unsure of
how my taper and everything was going to work
last year as a freshman,
and I really didnt want to
let my team down, Bennin said. Now I know
the taper does work, and
my team is always behind
me no matter how good I
swim.
Senior Maizie Seidl
won the 200 IM sectional title with more than a
five-second season-best in
2:05.93. She then added
a 1.77 PR to win the 100
free in 51.89.
Seidl is seeded third at
state in the 200 IM and
second in the 100 free. She
took ninth in the 100 free
at state last year and did
not compete in the 200 IM.
Nunn won her third consecutive sectional diving
title with a 457.75 on Friday. She is seeded sixth at
state after finishing 21st
last year and 12th as a
freshman.
Senior Kristi Larsen
(1:05.36) and sophomore
Rachael Drapp (1:07.75)
finished third and seventh
in the 100 breast. Each
qualified for state.
Larsen is seeded fifth
and will swim in the fastest heat, while Drapp is
seeded 22nd and will swim
in the first heat at state.
Drapp finished fourth in
the 200 IM (2:11.44) and

is seeded 19th at state.


Sara Stewart (24.39) and
Larsen (24.5) finished fifth
and sixth in the 50 free.
They will swim in the second of three heats at state,
seeded 12th and 15th,
respectively.
Stewart was Veronas top
finisher in the 100 backstroke, taking eighth place
in a season-best 59.25. She
is seeded 20th at state.
Sophomore Gabby
Gnewuch was close to an
eight second PR at sectionals, taking sixth in the 500
free (5:10.5). Her effort
earned her a 13th seed at
state. She finished eighth
in the 200 free (1:56.07) at
sectionals to earn the second to last state qualifier.
Josie McCartney took
fourth in the 100 butterfly
(58.19) and is seeded 14th
at state.
Senior Claire Wilson
took seventh in the 200 IM
(2:14.75) but missed the
state cut of 2:12.01.
All three VA/MH relays
qualified for state and will
swim in the fastest heats at
state.
Seidl, Larsen, Gnewuch
and Bennin placed third
in the 200 free relay with
a time of 1:37.14 and are
seeded third at state.
Stewart and McCartney
were joined by Bennin and
Larsen to open sectionals
with a third-place finish
on the 200 medley relay
(1:46.01). They are seeded
fourth.
Stewart, Gnewuch, Henshue and Seidl posted a 9.4
second PR from the previous week to take third in
the 400 free with a time of
3:34.69. They are seeded
eighth.
Thats one of the harder relays, Henshue said.
In the past that 400 free
relay hasnt done as well
as wed hoped. Today we
just all put everything we
had into that relay and did
our best.
The Division 1 diving
competition gets underway
at 10a.m. Saturday inside
the UW-Madison Natatorium with the swimming
competition following at

VAIS: Current agreement for K-5 school expires in June


that, said board member
Noah Roberts. There may
need to be a discussion on
whether there needs to be
additional supports and
things like that.
But board president Dennis Beres said all of our
charters are special.
Weve had many different levels of discussion
about this stuff over the
years, and all of our neighborhood schools are special places, too, and they
all have needs, Beres said.
The needs of the many
versus the needs of the
few.
District administration
also presented data on the
schools demographics,
staffing allocations, class
size and Mandarin proficiency.
The board is expected to
hear a first reading of a new
charter proposal at its Nov.
21 meeting, with discussion
and a potential vote as soon
as Dec. 5.
Administrators continued to question the schools
available supports for struggling students, and director
of bilingual programs and
instructional equity Laurie
Burgos pointed to a lack of
continuity in the programs
planning in its first seven
years of existence.
When you have a specialty program, you really
do need to have somebody
taking a lot of care, Burgos
said. Im just not sure that
all of the pieces have been
there and that youve had
one constant person there
able to focus and grow the
program.
Parents once again
showed up to ask board
members to renew the charter, as they have for the past
three meetings. That underscored the difficulty of the
decision the board will
have to make sometime in
December.
Theres no question of
(how wonderful the program is), Beres said. This
is where the rubber hits the
road, is in these issues.

High achievement
The brightest note for
supporters of VAIS came at
the end of the presentation,
when director of curriculum
and instruction Ann Franke
showed data that outlined
the high success of the
schools students.
Both MAP testing, given
to grades 3 through 5, and
the Forward and Badger
exams, given statewide for
one year each in the last
two, show VAIS students
performing well above their
peers in math and English
Language Arts.
Last year, on the Forward
Exam, 54.3 percent of VAIS
students were proficient or
better in ELA, while just
46.6 percent of the districts students in the same
grade levels did the same.
In math, the gap was 60
percent of VAIS students to
46.4 percent of the districts
students as a whole.
Franke, though, noted
the schools demographics
align with generally higher-achieving students.
Data presented earlier in
the meeting showed that
over the last three years
the school has had the
second-lowest or lowest

percentage of economically
disadvantaged students. It
also has one of the higher
percentages of white students, though for 2015-16 it
is lower than the other two
charter elementary schools
and Glacier Edge Elementary School.

Proficiency unclear
While their scores on the
state exams are strong, evidence of Chinese proficiency was weaker.
In the ACTFL Assessment of Performance
toward Proficiency in Languages (AAPPL) test taken in spring, 66 percent of
fourth-grade students met
the benchmark in speaking. Other than that, no
group among the fourthand fifth-grade classes had
more than 29 percent meet
the benchmark in listening,
reading, speaking or writing.
The problem for the district is those benchmarks
are based on Utahs Mandarin immersion programs.
Its very difficult for a
district to say were going
to use another districts
benchmark, Burgos said.
You really do have to have
an understanding of your
program and how it compares.
VAIS governing council
president Carolyn Jahnke
said this spring was the first
year the test was taken and
that Utah spent seven years
taking the exam to tweak its
targets.
This was kind of our
first foray into that and
trying to see if its right,
she said. (We learned) we
need to have more Chinese
speaking time.
Roberts asked the administrators how to weigh these
data points, given that its
only one year of testing.
Burgos explained that no
one piece of data should
be considered (alone) when
youre talking about renewing or not.
Jahnke and VAIS director
Ann Princl, who holds the
same part-time position at
New Century School, said
they will no longer allow
enrollment by students
after first grade unless they
demonstrate the necessary
proficiency in Chinese. In
the past, the school had
allowed some second-grade
students in to help fill spots
when students left.
We wouldnt take people if they didnt have the
required skill level of Mandarin to come in, Jahnke
said.

Open enrollment
above average
Another concern that has
been raised is the prevalence of open-enrollees.
Being the only Chinese-language immersion
school in the state can be
attractive to parents, and
a relatively high percentage of VAIS students come
from outside the district.
When the school doesnt
fill its allotted 22 seats
from students within the
district, parents from outside the district have been
allowed to attend through
open enrollment so much
so that the percentage at the
school is up to 13.5, well
above the districts overall
at 3.98 percent. That creates
issues for funding and can

lead to potentially tricky


decisions for continuing
Chinese education in middle school when some of
those open-enrollment students might not be in the
district any longer.
Resident students
brought in $11,611 per
student from state aid in
the 2015-16 school year.
Open enrollment students,
by contrast, only bring in
$6,639. Those dollars can
be a boost when filling
classes that would have
existed, anyway, but if they
are too large a proportion
of the class, it can cause
problems with covering
certain expenses.
You still have to budget
for supports and interventions and other things that
students need, said board
member Renee Zook.
Jahnke pointed out that
one class has five of the
schools 13 open enrollment students. Jahnke said
we all have to live with
the decision that was made
to allow that high number
of open enrollees in that
year.

Staffing, supports
That issue about supports
and interventions is one of
the biggest concerns administrators have expressed.
This year, for example,
the school decided to allocate none of its budget to
a reading specialist to help
struggling students. That
leaves Princl, who herself is
only half-time at the school,
to provide those supports.
Jahnke said former director Barb Drake decided
having a bilingual educational assistant previously a position with no budget allocation was more
important. That position
is funded at half time this
year.
Other positions the district must allocate for
include office support,
guidance, technology coordinator and library director.
Some of those are shared
with its site, Stoner Prairie
Elementary School.
Franke said ideally, one
more full-time equivalent
position would be available for reading and math
support, with that person
also serving as a learning
resource coordinator.
T h a t ( a c h i ev e m e n t )

datas very good, she said.


There are still students that
struggle and there are still
students that are not meeting benchmark ... that could
use additional support.
Burgos said finding a way
to support students in both
English and Chinese is key
to the entire idea behind the
school.
We cannot compromise
the 50-50 minutes, she
said. Were sharing a guarantee and some non-negotiable things to parents and
we need to do right by that
promise.

Results: Referendum survey


deadline was Monday
Continued from page 1

The new 2,200-student


high school would open
for the 2020-21 school
year if approved in April.
The final option for residents to choose from asked
if there was support for an
additional $32.7 million for
a new elementary school,
which would be constructed
south of the city on property
acquired in the successful
2015 referendum.
That building would open
for the 2019-20 school year
if approved.
The survey also asked
residents to consider whether they would support a
separate referendum to pay

annually to operate and


maintain the facilities.
School board members
would have to approve a dollar amount and specific referendum question to the districts bond counsel by Jan.
21 to get it on the April ballot, according to a handout
from Monday nights school
board meeting. That leaves
four regularly scheduled
board meetings for members
to discuss the survey results
and settle on a final option to
put in front of voters.
