HEBRON | School principals provided MSD of Boone Township board members with progress reports at Tuesday's regular meeting.
Elementary school principal James Martin reported that technology changes are in the works, the fifth-grade Math Bowl team placed second at a recent tournament at Boone Grove, Hebron hosted Circle the State With Song for the ninth year and ISTEP testing began on Tuesday.
Middle school principal Jeff Brooks reported very few absences for the ISTEP testing, the National Junior Honor Society hopes its Penny Wars will raise $2,000 for leukemia and lymphoma charities and the sixth-grade boys basketball team finished the season undefeated.
High school principal Mark Lutze said the school is making progress in technology integration in the classroom and the Accuplacer test is being given to students to determine if they are “college and career ready.”
The board voted to renew insurance with the current carrier, Hanover Insurance Group. The group also approved June 4 as an additional calendar day needed to make up snow days. Although school was canceled six days and delayed eight days, graduation is still planned for June 5, said Superintendent George Letz.
Letz said the deadline for applications for his position, which he will vacate this year, is Friday. So far, there are 10 applicants from principals, assistant superintendents, and current superintendents from Northwest Indiana and around the state.
