The monthly Board of Education meeting was held on Monday, September 18. Call to order began the meeting and the Pledge of Allegiance followed directly after. Roll call was taken by a Trustee and emergency corrections were considered and disputed among the members.

The welcoming of the new student representative, Autumn Mueller, took place along with an update given as to how things are going at IHS. Representative Mueller’s update included the High School’s Robotics class and the assembly of the district’s new 3D printer. The school also had a positive Principal’s Student Advisory Committee Meeting.

Superintendent Wilson highlighted what is happening in the district. A few examples  are school lunches, students who benefit from free or reduced lunch prices, students excelling in specific subjects due to curriculum change in the middle and elementary schools.

In last years round of standardized testing, third through eighth graders overall have improved in all subjects. English and mathematics being two of the highest categories. Along with those improved scores, MSTEP and SAT scores increased and we are above the average when compared to other surrounding districts.

Due to Ventra donating a robotic arm, Principal Gurk wants to expand the Robotics classes. Gurk wants to implement the FANUC robot into the robotics classes. This project has the first approval by the board and will hopefully soon be put into place. With doing so, the computer systems will need to be updated to run the hightech computer program, and this would also improve all Graphic Design classes.

The Board of Education is a critical public link to the community and local schools. School board members serve their communities in several different but important ways. School boards look out for students, with their education being their top priority.
