Employee handbook changes approved

Changes to employee handbooks for the 2014-15 school year were approved for professional teaching staff, administrative assistants, assistant cooks and associate kitchen staff, administrators, confidential support staff, custodians and paraprofessionals.

Most changes reflected language from the district’s new Strategic Plan, grammatical corrections, recommendations from legal counsel, policy references or clarifications that reflect actual practice.
A revision for teachers and paraprofessionals, however, came about from input given at the Compensation Committee and Heart of Hamilton meetings that provides staff with greater flexibility to use personal days.

All employees covered by the handbooks will receive an email with their specific handbook attached and details of the changes.

Schneider recognized for national teaching award

The Hamilton School Board recognized Templeton Middle School grade seven teacher Alan Schneider for being chosen Wisconsin Council for Social Studies Middle School teacher of the year. Board members congratulated him for earning the distinguished award and acknowledged the impact that his engaging teaching has on students.
The School Board approved revised curriculum documents for fitness education, health, human growth and development, secondary science, art, social studies and elementary English – language arts.

Bus transportation contract extended

The bus transportation contract with Dairyland – Hamilton was extended. In exchange for the extended contract, the district will receive a one-time credit of $42,000, installation of a new $60,000 camera system at no cost to district and a drop in payments. The revised contract will result in more than $31,536 of annual savings.

School school dates set for 2015

The Summer Opportunities Program will be in session from June 22 until July 17 in 2015 with no classes on July 3 to provide families with an extended July 4 holiday weekend.

Teacher induction program will operate without SWNTP partnership

New teachers hired in the Hamilton School District will continue to participate in an induction program, but the district will no longer be part of the Southeastern Wisconsin New Teacher Project. Instead, Educational Services will assume responsibility for professional learning opportunities previously provided by this agency. New teachers will attend a three-day workshop in August that will include introduction to the coaching model, an opportunity to develop an understanding of the strategic plan, technology training, mentor-mentee relationships and responsibilities, and policies and procedures.

New teachers will have afterschool workshops in: promoting a positive classroom environment, analyzing student work and providing effective feedback, disciplinary literacy and designing valid and reliable assessments. Teachers will continue to rely on district mentors for guidance regarding general operations and instructional practices.

Student handbooks approved

Elementary and middle school handbooks were approved. Changes included minor language changes, references to a new student database system and combining two signature pages into one.

Other personnel news

In other personnel business, the School Board:

  • accepted the resignations of Templeton grade seven teacher John Krenek and Marcy special services paraprofessional Katherine Gielow;

  • appointed Jennifer Berwanger as Woodside grade five teacher, Rebeccah Derks as Templeton grade 8 teacher Joseph Schaeffler as Templeton custodian, Lorene Lisheron as Hamilton art teacher, Andrew Lohr-Kougl as Hamilton science teacher, Rachel Ramirez as Hamilton paraprofessional and Tracy Hahn as Hamilton paraprofessional;
  • modified the contracts of special services program support staff member Kathleen Mesick from 70 to 60 percent, and Templeton speech and language pathologist Kristin Muehlenbach from 40 to 60 percent;
  • approved contracting for an additional part-time school nurse for the upcoming school year. The contract will be for 1,100 hours per year with a projected salary not to exceed $43,500. The current half-time contract with school nurse Lynn McClone is far below state- and nationally-recommended staffing levels. The need for nurse services has expanded as more students require medication at school, staff training expectations are growing and student health care plan coordination has more than tripled in the past decade; and
  • approved 2014-15 total aggregate salary increases of 1.46 percent for assistant cooks and associate kitchen staff, confidential support staff and administrators, 2 percent for paraprofessionals and 2.4 percent for administrative assistants. All salary adjustments are retroactive to July 1. Salaries for nongroup employees such as seasonal employees and substitutes remain unchanged.

Hamilton offers drivers’ education

Registration for Hamilton High School summer drivers’ education – including theory, simulation and behind-the-wheel – is underway. Registration forms are available in the high school front lobby. Completed forms with fees will be accepted at the high school office during school hours or by mail before Aug. 1. Students who will be 16 years old by March 30, 2015 are eligible to enroll in all three phases of the program.

The theory phase begins on Aug. 4 at 1:30 p.m. and includes 15 two-hour classes Monday through Friday. The theory phase covers the Motorist Manual, rules of the road, seat belts, insurance, car ownership and driving under the influence of alcohol or drugs.

The simulation, which starts Aug. 12-13, is five simulated experiences which cover turning, expressway driving, rural roads, winter and snow, hazards and collision traps and split-second decisions.

Behind-the-wheel includes six two-hour lessons held after school and Saturday mornings for students who have passed written, vision and sign tests at the Wisconsin Department of Motor Vehicles Department. The cost is $35 for the tests. Parents are required to practice with their child for 30 hours, 10 being at night.

Fees are $350 for the full program. For more information, please contact Hamilton Drivers’ Education Coordinator Jackie Rottler at rottja@hamilton.k12.wi.us. Hamilton High School is located at W220 N6151 Town Line Road, Sussex.

Summer Opportunities hosts annual food drive

The Hamilton School District Summer Opportunities Program is hosting its annual Fantastic Food Drive. Families of students are encouraged to contribute non-perishable food items to benefit Sussex Outreach Services (SOS) Food Pantry.

Bins are located in the Summer Opportunities office at Hamilton High School, Willow Springs Learning Center, Maple Avenue Elementary School gymnasium and many classrooms. The food drive ends July 17.

Hamilton High School is located at W220 N6151 Town Line Rd., Sussex.

Special annual meeting held to accommodate road construction

The Hamilton School Board will hold a special annual meeting July 10 at 6 p.m. in the Hamilton High School Cafeteria to dedicate right-of-way to Waukesha County. The land transfer involves a 12 foot strip along the front of the high school on Town Line Road, which will enable the county to make road improvements in conjunction with development of a subdivision and the Halquist Youth Complex near the high school. The road improvement project will add right and left turn lanes and a stoplight at the south drive of the high school. The additional lanes will turn onto high school property and enhance safety for drivers entering school grounds, including entrance to the Halquist Youth Complex — softball, youth baseball and soccer fields — which is expected to be completed in fall of 2015.
