Lead and Water Testing In the News

Posted by on in Carroll CSC Blog Posts
I wanted to take a moment to make sure all patrons understand Carroll Consolidated School Corporation is its own public water system.  Lead testing and water purity are important issues.  Both of these topics have been in the news a lot lately with problems in Flint, Michigan and Eastern Howard School Corporation. 

We have the water from our wells tested every three months.  We test for bacteria, volatiles from fuel, lead, and copper.  There is a set schedule determined by the State of what we test for and when.  We collect samples from 10-15 different spots across the campus.   IDEM always send the reports to us after every sample period and validates they were clean.  IDEM keeps a record of all tests on their website.  If we have an issue with a water sample test, we would notify you as a patron and a stakeholder.  This is required by law. 

In 2013-2014 we spent over $40,000 and updated the water delivery systems, iron filters, and lots of the piping that feeds water to both the elementary and the high school from the wells.  We take our duty to provide clean drinking water seriously.  We wanted to assure all patrons that testing is in place, and we monitor our own fresh water systems as required by law for all public water entities.  If you have any questions about our water systems or testing, please ask.  I’d be happy to answer these for you.

Test Anxiety and Strategies to Overcome It

Posted by on in Carroll CSC Blog Posts
Test Anxiety

In the following weeks students will be taking several performance assessments that contribute to their future academic success. Test anxiety is a common hindrance that many students experience. According to the American Test Anxieties Association about 16-20% of students have high test anxiety, while 18% experience moderately-high test anxiety. Test anxiety can cause an array of problems in students, such as headache, upset stomach, loss of focus and anger. The higher the anxiety the more it reduces working memory, confuses reasoning, increasing mistakes, and lowers test scores. Students with high anxiety perform around 12 percentile points below their low anxiety peers (about half of a letter grade below).  

Research has shown that providing students with tools and strategies can assist students in overcoming test anxiety.  Two easy steps to mitigating test anxiety are getting a good night’s rest and eating a healthy breakfast on the day of the test. Here are a few other strategies that can assist in minimizing test anxiety.  

1.     Set Reasonable Expectations: Remember to think about it as one test at a time. Set reachable goals. If you set goals that are hard to achieve, it will only cause frustration and lack of motivation.

2.     Address the what-if-questions: Before an exam we tend to have several negative “what-if” thoughts. “What if I fail?” or “What if I run out of time.” Try writing a what-if question that is positive which will reverse the negative self- talk. For instance, “What if I can remember more than I think I can?”

3.     Practice Relaxation Techniques: If you are becoming tense during the exam, take deep slow breathes and consciously relax your muscles, one at a time. This can refresh your body and will allow you to better focus on the exam.

Also remember teachers and school counselors can be a great resource!

Pre-Kindergarten

Posted by on in Carroll CSC Blog Posts
CCSC is looking to move forward with a proposal to plan for a pre-kindergarten class for next year.  This pilot program will be focused on serving 4 year-old students from high poverty backgrounds.  We will require the students be qualified for the federal free and reduced  lunch program. We do not want to take students away from other area preschools.  Our intent is to serve the neediest students who are not served by any other preschool program in Carroll County.  Our limit will be 15 four-year old students.  These students will ride our buses and complete a full day at Carroll Elementary.  We will not be taking any students who are considered "paid" students based on federal free lunch guidelines.   

If you know a pre-kindergarten student who may qualify, call us at the Central Office.  967-4113.  We would like to establish a classroom of 15 confirmed students in the next month.  


Our plan and proposal is to fund this program for one year from parent self-pay, school rainy-day funds, and grants.   We will evaluate the merits of program and continue it based on its successes and measurable growth for students.  We have had meetings with Bauer Headstart and Delphi Community Schools to plan applications for some basic grants to support the concept of a pre-kindergarten program county wide.   We have met with some area churches and invited all to be part of this planning process.

Another goal is to create a unified literacy and math curriculum and assessment program for all pre-kindergarten students in the county.  Our dream is to create a cohesive database that will help track data for preschools and prekindergarten students to see how they grow beyond pre-k.   This could inform the practice of the preschool or prekindergarten classes.  It will also help the kindergarten teacher to have the same data from all preschools and programs in the county.  

I'm excited that this has been a cooperative effort between multiple stakeholders to get this off the ground.  We are truly making the effort to provide a program for our neediest students.

CargillAg Donation

Posted by on in Carroll CSC Blog Posts
Dear Parents,

In early March, we were contacted by representatives of CargillAg in Lafayette.  The let us know the saw the story about lunch account debt on WLFI.  They asked us if they could make a donation to cover the cost of the lunch fund debt.

Their motivation was to make sure all students received a lunch and were well fed.  After a few phones to their corporate superiors, they agreed to pay the lunch account debt for anyone who owed money on their lunch account as of that date in early March.  We ran a report of lunch account debt on that date and gave CargillAg a total number based on a snapshot of that day.  The amount changes daily.  The amount of the donation came to $3,330 and CargillAg asked the corporate office to send in the donation.  It took a few weeks for the donation to arrive.

The check was received by CCSC right before spring break.  We contacted the State to make sure we accepted the donation and received the funds in to the food service accounts in the correct manner.   Mrs. Taylor, our Food Service Director, has started to move the funds to individual accounts based on the amount owed in the early March.  If you owed lunch funds on March 3, 2016, you will probably see the donated funds show up on your Harmony Lunch Account balance over the next few weeks.  It will take Mrs. Taylor some time to do the individual transactions based on the way CargillAg wanted it applied.  We will follow CargillAg’s desire to pay off whatever debt was there based on the day we took the snapshot. 

We are so excited we live in a community that is so caring and willing to invest in our schools and students.  The families of CCSC truly benefit from this donation.   If you would like to send a note or card to CargillAg to thank them, their address is:

Rigor

Posted by on in Carroll CSC Blog Posts
Lately, we have had great conversations about grit, rigor, tenacity, and academic stamina and how our students benefit greatly from having these life skills. What exactly does this mean? How do we help our students tackle large tasks and see them through to the end without getting frustrated and giving up? Grit is courage, resolve, strength of character and determination. Encouraging students to be courageous and take risks is key if we expect to make academic gains. Many times students are afraid to take a risk for fear of failure. It is our job as educators to scaffold our students learning and ensure that they are prepared to be risk takers while taking on rigorous tasks. An excellent example of a rigorous task and a challenge for our students to increase their stamina would be to enroll in an Advanced Placement (AP) course. 

Students who are taking an Advanced Placement course at Carroll Jr.-Sr. High School are required to take the AP exam at the end of the course. They must also meet the requirements and standards of an AP course. Due to the rigor of Advanced Placement courses, students get the benefits of these courses being weighted on their transcripts. 

I would encourage students to take a risk and have the tenacity to complete an AP course during their high school career. If we are focused on having our student's college and career ready as they leave Carroll Jr.-Sr. High School, they need to be encouraged to take risks and move outside of their comfort zones. Students will reap great benefits from the challenges of Advanced Placement courses.

AHERA Asbestos Management Plan

Posted by on in Carroll CSC Blog Posts
The Federal Asbestos Hazardous Emergency Response Act (AHERA) requires all school facilities to receive an intensive inspection to locate, identify and deal appropriately with the various types of asbestos that may have been used in the construction of the buildings. Only Carroll Junior Senior High and the Central Office ever had any Asbestos.  These areas were remediated previously.  Any existing Asbestos in any of our buildings undergoes an extensive biannual inspection by our Director of Maintenance.   All Asbestos Containing Materials (ACM) were located and documented in a "Management Plan” that is on file at each building. Carroll Elementary has no Asbestos.  


 All buildings are re-inspected by a licensed Asbestos inspector every three years, with the most recent being September 2013. This plan identifies and describes the appropriate methods of handling and maintaining any ACM that was found in the District's buildings. A copy of the Management Plan is located in the main office of each school building. It is available for review by students, staff members and the public.


The mere presence of ACM does not represent a health hazard. Asbestos presents a health hazard only when the fibers become airborne (friable asbestos). Any insulation that contained ACM and was in areas of direct access by students and staff has been removed or encapsulated. Other areas containing asbestos where there is no student or staff exposure is monitored according to code requirements for damage and repaired or removed as necessary. Our maintenance and custodial staff have been trained to identify ACM and are taking special precautions during their work to guard against disturbing the material. Carroll Consolidated School Corporation has maintained an asbestos management plan and is committed to protecting the health and welfare of our students, staff and all those who use our facilities. If you have any questions concerning asbestos, please contact Mr. Jeff Bordner, Director of Maintenance at (574) 967-4113.

Curriculum Maps

Posted by on in Carroll CSC Blog Posts
Dear Parents,

I wanted to update you on a major project our teachers have been working hard on for over a year.   We knew with all the new tests coming from the State we would need to update our curriculum.  The first step to updating and aligning the curriculum to the new tests would be to document the curriculum.  The teachers have been working on producing a product called a curriculum map.  It is a basic roadmap of the major concepts that will be taught each nine weeks of the school year by subject.  It is similar to a syllabus or a pacing guide, but it is less specific about page numbers in a book and more about what standards and concepts will be taught. 

As the State shares more information about the new tests, we will have to change our curriculum maps to align with what the State is pushing down.  The State will tell us what percent of each test will be loosely based on what standards.   The process of changing curriculum and aligning to a new summative test could take two to three years minimum.  

We are in the process of loading these curriculum maps on our school website.   We will load them underneath the teacher’s name on their respective web page. This will take some time.  We started the project first at the CJSHS, so their maps will be loaded first.  As teachers change the curriculum maps to align with the new tests, we’ll load the updated maps to our website.   Our goal here is to document what our curriculum actually is and make it visible for public review.  I have attached a sample copy of a 9th-gradecurriculum map, so you can have an understanding of what a curriculum map looks like.  These will also be helpful to students as they select courses.  It will give them more information about the class.      

Any questions, feel free to ask, 
Sincerely, 
Chris Lagoni

Changes to ISTEP

Posted by on in Carroll CSC Blog Posts
The news broke recently there may be another delay to the release of ISTEP scores.  This means local school “grades” will be further delayed and teachers will have to wait longer for the raises in pay they have earned.  The local news outlets have communicated there may have been some statistical difference in the performance of students who took paper tests versus those who took electronic or on-line tests.    

Carroll Consolidated School Corporation switched to all paper pencil tests last spring.  This was after Carroll experienced some technology issues during practice tests.  

The State Board of Education has asked for a study to compare paper and pencil test performance to that of online tests.  The issue may be the technology-enhanced questions.   Last year was the first year Indiana implemented new technology-enhanced questions that had multiple correct answers.  A problem could have two or three correct answers instead of just one.   Carroll teachers practiced and exposed our students to these new College and Career readiness sample questions last winter.  This is an entirely new way to assess students, and it will take time for us to convert our everyday assessments to this new format.   

There were multiple questions on last year’s ISTEP that required students to think and process and respond to large amounts of writing.  There is nothing wrong with that method of assessment. The problem was the students were given eight to twelve minutes to complete some of these sections that had multiple pages.   Teachers commented these sections didn’t seem to be developmentally appropriate for the age of students.   There are limits to how hard you can make a test for 3rd or 4th graders before they just shut down.  

Some of the stress educators feel is simply due to the rate of change the last few years.  Most educators acknowledge the need for accountability and documented progress for students.   The key is all parties have to understand how they are being measured and assessed.  The stress over the past year has been the change in the assessment was a real unknown for parents, students, and teachers.   The Indiana Department of Education has communicated to schools that there is a strand of questions in the 2014 ISTEP and 2015 ISTEP that are similar and these can be used to track student growth.  These student growth scores account for a large part of a teachers’ evaluation.  This is required by state law.  This was further complicated when the state cut the test sessions in half due to the public outcry about the length of the test.   

Educators are taking a wait and see approach.  The State Board of Education understands the importance of their decisions.  That is why they are being careful and reflective.  Early results show a 20% decrease in student performance statewide.   We can expect the same for our results.    The data has not been provided to us yet.  

 For the last ten years, we have had a consistent system of assessment.  People understood the tests and designed their curriculum so students would be successful.    I compare all these changes to running a mile in gym.  For years students knew they had to run the mile in gym class at the end of the term.  The gym teacher communicated to students the expectations to improve their time over the school year.  There may have been a specific cut time for earning a definite grade.   Perhaps, the teacher had a record board which documented the best mile time over the years.   These changes can be compared to changing the assessment to a three-mile run instead of a one-mile run.  You could measure the students' progress at the one-mile mark and compare it to the previous year.   However, the pace of the total race is different.   How you run the first mile of a three-mile race is different than just going out and running a mile.     We definitely have a different race to run now.  The test will be longer.  It will be harder.   I have full confidence in our teachers and students in their ability to adapt to the new system and rigors.   We just need time to understand the assessment, examine results, and change our curriculum.   It took schools about five years to fully understand and adjust to the ISTEP test.   We can anticipate a similar timeline with this change.

Carroll County 4th Grade Ag Day Celebration!!

Posted by on in Carroll CSC Blog Posts
Our annual Ag Day celebration and field trip is one of the highlights of the year!!!  It is great to see both Delphi and Carroll coming together to celebrate and learn about our deep agriculture roots.  One of the strengths of this annual field trip and learning experience is the high number of parents and community members who contribute to its success.    Many of our 4th graders were amazed at the breadth of career opportunities that exist in all aspects of agriculture!!  A big thank-you to all of the volunteers from both schools who helped with this annual event.  Our students enjoyed it.

Carroll High School Partners w/ Ivy Tech Integrated Technology Education Program

Posted by on in Carroll CSC Blog Posts
The Carroll Consolidated School Corporation School Board of Trustees approved a letter of engagement with Ivy Tech Kokomo this week.  Carroll is integrating its Advanced Manufacturing Program with Ivy Tech's Integrated Technology Education Program.  Carroll High School Teacher, Tyler Sausamen has been successfully producing students with the up to four national certifications which qualify students for MSSC and CPT certifications.  These students have documented and proven skills ready to move into Careers in Advanced and High Tech Manufacturing or further their training at post secondary institutions.  http://www.msscusa.org/certification/

Carroll is committed to providing North Central Indiana with College and Career ready workforce to  tackle the high tech careers of the future.  Our partnership with Ivy Tech Kokomo gives our students the chance to visit numerous employers and use some of the latest and best equipment in various industries.  This makes Carroll County a great place for any high tech manufacturer to locate.  

Students who finish the Advanced Manufacturing program with CHS can qualify for a full ride scholarship to Ivy Tech Kokomo to complete an associates degree in one of the aligned programs.  This is paid for by the  Youth Connect Grant for Ivy Tech Kokomo.   Industry data documents students who have an MSSC and CPT certification can make $50,000 per year or more with some positions earning as much as $80,000 per year.  

Once again, CCSC demonstrates our ability to be a small school that provides multiple opportunities to students and families.

Server Improvements This Summer

Posted by on in Carroll CSC Blog Posts
This summer we will upgrade all of our server infrastructure. We are purchasing all new devices with more memory and faster processors. In horse racing parlance, we are upgrading from plow horses to thoroughbreds. The new servers won't win the derby, but at least you will recognize them as race horses when they are running. Our current servers are about ten years old. iPad connection speeds from home should improve. We have been planning and budgeting for this improvement for about a year.

Over the summer we will also migrate from a Novell Network to a Microsoft Network. This will help all our various programs and systems work together better. Novell is a stable platform, but very few systems or educational programs are engineered to work with it anymore. This will not impact the iPad connectivity for the students. Parents and students will not notice this change as you use the iPads at home.

I wanted everyone to know about the pending improvements.

Deeper Learning

Posted by on in Carroll CSC Blog Posts
One way to summarize the skills and knowledge that students need in 21st century jobs and civic life is called “Deeper Learning”.  Below are the six basic areas of Deeper Learning.

1. Master core academic content
2. Think critically and solve complex problems
3. Work collaboratively
4. Communicate effectively – written and oral
5. Learn how to learn
6. Develop academic mindsets (attitudes and beliefs that lead to perseverance and motivation)

As our classrooms change to prepare students for what is expected of them, we have to consider how students will react.  How will students respond?  The complete answer is dependent on the specific student, but we can expect some commonalities. 

When students are challenged to think critically and solve problems, many will feel uncomfortable and unprepared.  They will want to quit and look for excuses.  They will beg for a worksheet with one word answers, not because it will prepare them better for what is expected of them, but because it is familiar and appears easier.  When students are challenged to think deeply about a concept and consider multiple approaches to a solution, we can expect resistance.  Students will ask for the one “right answer”.  Students can’t learn problem solving skills unless they encounter problems.   That is why “Learning how to learn” and “Developing academic mindsets” are part of the process.  We must teach students to persist and believe in their abilities. Students must take responsibility for their learning and reflect on their thinking.  Teachers must become intentional about teaching these success mindsets.  Reading and thinking strategies must be modeled in all subject areas. 

Parents and community members can help students by anticipating their need for productive struggling through the problem solving process and encouraging them to persist.  Have students write out their questions and roadblocks.  Tell them to look for “clues” to a solution.  As students learn to ask productive questions they will find solutions more quickly.  The student engagement will lead to improved motivation to learn and increased learning.  To find out more about deeper learning, watch the video found at https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=EpzJgOyiH7g Continue reading

Carroll Student Recognized in the Top 5% of the Nation

Posted by on in Carroll CSC Blog Posts
For the 3rd year in a row Carroll Senior High School has a student recognized in the top 5% of all students nationally.   Carroll Senior High School Senior Zaelin A. Goodman has been recognized as a Commended Student in the 2015 National Merit Scholarship Program.

According to the College Board, about 34,000 Commended Students throughout the nation are being recognized for their exceptional academic achievement. Commended Student scores represent the top five percent of more than 1.5 million students nationally who entered the 2015 competition by taking the 2013 PSAT/NMSQT.   Anytime someone from CCSC achieves something in the top 5% nationally, we should recognize his/her efforts. 

Zaelin is the son of Bryan and Lindsey Gray of Cutler and Aubrey and Sarah Goodman of Lafayette.  This achievement is a credit to Zaelin, his parents, and all the teachers and staff that have supported him throughout his school career.   Zaelin exemplifies the Carroll Way: Respect, Responsibility, and Excellence.   We rejoice in his achievement and want to celebrate his efforts.
