Page 4 May 3 2001 Ouad City Herald Audrey Mansfield School Board members have changed their monthly meeting date. Meet- ings will be held the fourth Wednesday of each month at 7 p.m beginning May 30. In other business at the regular school board meeting Wednesday, April 25, board members held a hearing to gather sugges- tions on ways to spend money generated by the passage of Initiative 728. S tate voters passed the initiative last year, providing money for smaller classes, more teacher training and construction projects designed to impact class size. Mansfield district officials appointed a committee of district patrons to come up with sugges- tions. District superintendent Tom Colby said Cont' d from page 1 class size, offering more learning opportu- nities for students and extra teacher train- ing, early childhood education or construc- tion projects related to reducing class sizes. But while the initiative provided extra money for those projects, education fund- ing may be cut in other ways, which may mean that not all the money will be spent on new programs. The first priority for Bridgeport's money will be an all-day kindergarten; Schmidt said there might be three sections. The additional fLrst grade teacher will be hired with 1-728 money. Extra teacher training and on-line computer classes at the high school are the other priorities. Board members approved a new school calendar. Students will go back to school on August 27; Christmas vacation will be- gin December 19 and classes will start again January 3. The two snow makeup days the first weekend in March;removed the suggestions from the committee and hearing included after-school tutoring, an extended school day (if test scores seem to indicate it is necessary) or Saturday school. Other suggestions were additional teacher training and more technology updates and support. The committee will study the sug- gestions and makerecommendations to the school board. Board members discussed enrollment. Colby said it is declining; there are fewer Mansfield residents with kids. About 25 percent of Mansfield's students live out- side the district, and that percentage is not changing, he said. Colby said he does not anticipate a reduction in staff, but district officials are watching the situation closely. from the calendar for 2000-01, have been reinstated for 2001-02. Spring vacation will be the first week in April. School will be dismissed for the summer about June 7, 2002. Board members discussed sending a survey to district patrons and employ- ees, asking their opinion of the board' s performance. That would be in addi- tion to the board's own self-evalua- tion, Schmidt said. Schmidt reported that plans to update the middle school will take a longer than an- ticipated. Plans call for the 51-year-old building to get new windows and outside doors, a new roof and a redesign of the grounds. Computer lab improvements also are planned. But, Schmidt said. all that stuff was more expensive than projected. District officials plan to apply for a grant to pay some of the costs, but completion of the project will take two to three years instead of one to two, he said. Budding artists at Brewster art fair.

"And now, Israel, what doth the LORD thy God require of thee, but to fear the LORD thy God, to walk in all his ways, and to love him, and to serve the LORD thy God with all thy heart and with all thy soul, To keep the commandments of the LORD, and his statues, which I command thee this day for thy good? Behold, the heaven and the heaven of heavens is the LORD'S thy God, the earth also, with all that therein is. For the LORD your God is God of gods, and Lord of lords a great God, a mighty, and a terrible, which re~rdeth not persons, nor taketh reward:' Deut. 10: 12-14, 17.
