We have received the annual Presidents Report to the Community from Kaskaskia College.  One thing to note in the report is the number of college credit hours Central High School students receive in KC’s Jumpstart program.   When you compare Central with all other public and private schools in the 5 county region, our students earn more credits than those in any other high school. 

 

The annual Tri-County Institute was held at Centralia High School on Friday, February 14th.  It was a cooperative program scheduled by the Regional Office of Education and funded by the Kaskaskia Special Education District.  It offered many great programs and professional development opportunities for our teachers.  Our teachers were required to attend at least five sessions on that day.  We also offered an  in-service training for all of our Head Coaches at Central High School on that day.  The focus of that meeting was on the Power of Positive Leadership and the creation of a unified set of Core Values for all of our athletic programs. 

 

The Health/Life Safety amendment for the West Gym Parapet and East Gym Door project is currently being reviewed by ISBE.  Once the amendment is approved, we will approve the bids we have received on those two projects.  The total cost to complete both projects will be approximately $26,000. 

 

Our Health/Life Safety amendment for the new Fire Alarm Control panel has been approved by ISBE and we have received a bid from Johnson Controls for that project.  A motion to approve a payment in the amount of $7,527.00 for the fire alarm control panel replacement was made by Voss, second by Kruse.  Roll call vote: Aye –Mike Nettemeier, Sean Kennedy, Mary Lou Voss, Amy Kruse, Tanya Kampwerth, Jeff Kampwerth, Tim Richter.  Nay – None  This payment is for the cost of materials and we will owe $5,953 at the completion of the project for labor expenses.   

 

Dr. Foutch reviewed the Transportation Bid Specifications.  Dr. Foutch wanted to ensure that we are clear and transparent in regards to the district expectations included in our Transportation Request for Proposal. A motion to approve the Transportation Bid specifications was made by Richter, second by Kruse.  Roll call vote: Aye –Mike Nettemeier, Sean Kennedy, Mary Lou Voss, Amy Kruse, Tanya Kampwerth, Jeff Kampwerth, Tim Richter.  Nay – None

 

We have tentatively agreed to terms with our Student Information Management System Contractor, Skyward, for the next calendar year.  The cost per student has increased by the small sum of $0.19 per student for 2020-21.  A motion to approve a one year renewal contract with Skyward for the Student Information Management System was made by J. Kampwerth, second by Kennedy.   Roll call vote: Aye –Mike Nettemeier, Sean Kennedy, Mary Lou Voss, Amy Kruse, Tanya Kampwerth, Jeff Kampwerth, Tim Richter.  Nay – None

 

Central High School currently pays AT&T between $2,500 and $2,900 per month for phone service.  Dr. Foutch has been working with Call One (an Illinois Association of School Business Officials Approved Contractor) to reduce these costs.  We received a bid from Call One on January 21st that would reduce our land-line costs to around $250 per month.  A motion to approve our Customer Service Agreement with Call One was made by Richter, second by Kennedy.  Roll call vote: Aye –Mike Nettemeier, Sean Kennedy, Mary Lou Voss, Amy Kruse, Tanya Kampwerth, Jeff Kampwerth, Tim Richter.  Nay – None

PRINCIPAL’S REPORT:

 

Counselors received all student scheduling forms by February 12, 2020 and are in the process of verifying that student scheduling information is correct in the system. Immediately following Freshman Registration Night on March 4, 2020, we will be able to proceed with a better understanding of projected enrollment numbers, seat counts across classes and the beginning stages of building the master schedule.

 

Mr. Ketchum discussed with our School Improvement Team (S.I.T.) the idea of transitioning Central CHS to a 10-point grading scale (90-100 A; 80-89 B; 70-79 C, etc.) and 3 lunch periods. 

 

The PM In-Service on 02/28/2020 will be focused on the Power of Positivity for teachers across all departments and the positive impact this can have on teaching and learning both within and outside the classroom setting.

 

The remainder of post evaluation meetings will conclude during the week of February 24-28 and final evaluation files for all certified teachers on the 2019-2020 schedule will be submitted to Dr. Foutch by 02/28/2020.

 

Central has currently raised approximately $1500 (and still increasing) for the Special Olympics “COOL SCHOOL” Plunge on 02/21/20.  We had 35-40 students participate.

 

On 02/21/20, the administration welcomed a few 8th grade families from Aviston, Albers and Damiansville who could not attend our January event due to school athletic events. 

 

Mackenzie Duncan represented Central and District VI of the Illinois Music Educators Association at the Future Music Educators Seminar at the State Music Convention.  Mackenzie is the second student in school history to represent Central at the State Convention.

 

Congrats to our Central Cougars who competed in the Regional Academic Challenge held at KC.  Central placed 2nd as a team and will advance to the Sectional competition on March 6th at SWIC.
