KASD News

District Technology Leaders Present at SLATE

On December 5th, four KASDstaff memberspresented at SLATE (School Leaders Advancing Technology in Education),a state-wide educational technology conference hosted by the Association of Wisconsin School Administrators (AWSA). River View Middle School teachers Kim Leisgang and Kyrstn Bergh presented a session on the use of classroom tools Nearpod and Screencastify, whichwork together to get students more involved in their classroom activities using their Chromebooks. Kaukauna High School Library Media Specialist and Technology Coach Kevin Hietpas, along with District Technology Coordinator Jim Geoffrey, presented a session about how technology can be used to bring more authentic assessment practices into our classroom.They focused on specific tools and practices that have been initiated within the past year in our district. Both sessions had high attendance and were well received by participants. While not presenting, these staff members were busy learning about both technology resources and how to successfully integrate them into their practice. OnDecember 12th, Jim Geoffrey and Angela Brown will be presenting at the TIES conference in Minneapolis, where they will lead two sessions: one on Chromebooks in 1st grade, and another on the use of our new Interactive Touch Panels at the elementary level.

Kaukauna Schools Exceed Expectations

The Wisconsin Department of Public Instruction (DPI) released School Report Cards for all Wisconsin publicly-funded schools and districts on November 21, 2017. Kaukauna Area School District again earned outstanding scores: Victor Haen Elementary School and Park Community Charter School earned the “Significantly Exceeds Expectations” distinction; Electa Quinney Elementary School, New Directions Learning Community and River View Middle School earned a place in the “Exceeds Expectations” category; and Kaukauna High School is meeting expectations. Tanner Early Learning Center has a student body that it too young to take the standardized tests, and therefore, is not included in the DPI’s annual review. Because of the significant growth and success at the school level, our combined district accountability score and rating, landed KASD in the “Exceeds Expectations” category for the second year in a row. “These report cards are more evidence of the academic growth that continues to occur in the Kaukauna Area School District,” said Superintendent Mark Duerwaechter. “This is another proud moment for KASD, and we will continue down this path toward success. We didn’t come this far, to only come this far. Our staff and students continue to put in the work, achieve success and grow every day.” DPI’s School Report Cards are intended to help schools and districts examine data across four priority areas: Student Achievement, measured by proficiency in reading and mathematics on state assessments Student Growth, measured by year-to-year improvements in achievement Closing Gaps in performance On-track and Postsecondary Readiness Test participation, absenteeism and dropout rates are also measured. Kaukauna Area School District’s current report cards are all available on the Kaukauna Area School District’s District and School Performance web page. Past report cards can be viewed on the Wisconsin DPI website.
