Eastern Wisconsin Excellence in Education Awards Program

Eastern Wisconsin Excellence in Education Awards Program

We are excited to announce that twenty-four school districts are partnering with Channel 5 to recognize exceptional school employees in a program called the “Eastern Wisconsin Excellence in Education" awards.  This program is similar to the “Golden Apple” and “Shining Stars” programs in Green Bay and the Fox Valley.

This program allows parents, students, community members, and staff to nominate deserving school employees in the following categories:  

·  Innovation in work (How has the employee demonstrated innovation in his/her work area?)

·  Culture creator in the work environment (How has the employee gone above and beyond in creating a positive school culture?)

·  Social/emotional well being (How has the employee impacted the social/emotional well being of students and/or the school environment?)

·  Community involvement (How has the employee positively impacted the community?)

·  Student connection (In what ways has the employee built positive relationships with students?) 

Nominations need to be submitted by February 5, 2024.  Following the submission deadline, a panel of judges will review each nomination to determine finalists.  These finalists will then be asked to elaborate on the work outlined in the nomination.  The judges will then select the award recipients in each of the five categories.

The awards show ceremony will be held on Saturday, May 18, 2024 at the Kiel Area School District Performing Arts Center.  The program will be live streamed on the Channel 5, website.

The nomination form will also be available on the websites of all 24 school districts, as well as social media outlets and found within local newspapers.

Understanding Fair Funding for Our Future

First published on 01 December 2010 Posted in Business Office

On November 15, 2010, Wisconsin State Superintendent of Public Instruction, Tony Evers, revealed his comprehensive plan “Fair Funding for Our Future” around the state.  The intent of this article is to summarize the proposal and how it would affect the School District of Chilton residents.

Some of the key components of the Fair Funding plan and what Evers hopes to achieve are as follows:

  • Increase guaranteed funding of all students from $1,000 to $3,000.  This would give the property rich districts, who in the past have received little to no aid, some aid to assist with the education of their students.
  • Move levy credit allocations to equalization aid.  Over the past six years, School aid has increased 1%, Categorical aids 20% and Levy Tax Credits 91%.  Levy credits are considered by the State a part of school funding.  The money allocated to levy credits is not distributed based on Equalized values, but rather by levy itself.  This causes a district to present an inflated levy rate to the tax payers.  The levy credit information is not given to school districts and as of the end of October, the information is not available.
  • Consolidate categorical aids.  Currently there are a number of small categorical aid categories.  This would combine all of the categorical aids and focus them on five high needs areas (Special Ed, High Cost Special Ed, Bilingual/Bicultural, SAGE and School Breakfast).
  • Maintain current growth to the Revenue Limits formula and establish predictable growth in state aids.  Currently $200 per pupil increase in the revenue limit formula is stated in law.  As was stated above, only 1% growth has been given to school aids over the past 6 years.  This plan looks to have the greater of 2% or CPI.

According to the information that was provided by Evers, Chilton district would receive a 4.4% increase in aid.  With this increase in state support, the 2010-2011 tax levy mill to our district tax payers would have dropped from $10.62 per thousand to $8.10 per thousand.  Chilton has not seen a tax rate this low since 2000 when the mill rate was $7.61 (lowest in 30+ years).

It is extremely early to assume that Evers' plan will be adopted fully or in part by the new legislation and at this time Governor Elect Walker has not presented a budget proposal, though his office has referenced the state’s $3 billion budget deficit.  K-12 education makes up 44% of the state’s budget, so one can only assume that education funding will have some changes.

I will keep you informed as more plans are released and additional information is attained.

This note is to let you know about the options available to you with your 2011 Tiger Yearbook, which will be on sale Monday, October 18th- Wednesday, Oct. 27th in the commons. 

NEW THIS YEAR!!! The yearbook will be in color and it will also be slightly larger in dimensions.  This is why the basic yearbook will now cost $40.00 and if you want name stamping, $45.00.  You may also have a second line stamped on your cover, which could be "Class of 200?", depending on your grade level.  This second line would add $3.00 to the price of the book for a total of $48.00.  Also, you may add up to four icons to the cover of your book for an additional $3.00 per icon.  There are 50 icons to choose from (see back).  You may add an icon to your cover with either one line (name stamping) or two lines of personalization (name stamping  + class).  You may not have an icon or “class of” line without name stamping.
