    because when you are on the side, you only see who is on top.

                 has the 5th grade, Jena Sherry teaches 4th grade science and Pat Dittman teachers 5th grade Math
                 and Social Studies. With the number of students in special education, Nancy Tyler is needed as a
                 full time special ed aide. So there is no library aide. Landon Harger has 20 students in both am
                 and pm classes. We have staff and students helping 4K students as needed.
            2. Reminded Kelly Everhart to vote for Rhonda Owens for the regional 9 director.

Principals’ Reports
    1. Doug Olsen presented the WKCE Testing results from the Fall 2007 testing for 3rd, 4th and 5th Grade.
         Special Ed students are not included but take modified tests. 4 th grade is the only grade tested for language
         arts. The testing is for math, science, social studies and reading. The WKCE testing is located at the DPI
         website as the WINS network so anyone can view the results. Mr Olsen showed how Kickapoo compared
         to the state in advance and proficient percentages.
    2. Aaron Mithum presented the same testing for grades 6, 7, 8 and 10 in language arts, reading, math, social
         studies and science. The charts can also compare different grades, different testing areas, compare to other
         schools to see how well your school is competing. The teachers can look at these testing results more in
         depth to see how well the students are picking up the information, when the students should be introduced
         to the information, how curriculum should be changed to help the students.
    3. Aaron Mithum told the Board the high school received the School Promise Award again this year.
    4. The high school has 18 new students. The start of school has been going well.
