With a letter of retirement coming last evening, there are seven staff members leaving R-9 employment when their contracts end.

Collectively, the seven have 118 and a half years experience at Trenton. Submitting a retirement letter last evening was Rissler Elementary School Librarian Susan Ward. She's been employed 16 years.

Those whose retirements were announced earlier are Lora Hudson, Dennis Gutshall, Barb Cox, Tom Powell, Ann Mayfield, and Ron Wright.

Board President Kevin Bailey last evening presented those six with a school bell and a one year paid membership in the retired teachers' association. Mrs. Ward will receive the same gifts at a later date.

In another personnel item, Adam Clark is resigning his position as academic lab and success center instructor. Clark has been with the R-9 district seven years.

The board of education approved an employee health insurance plan that's just an overall three point six percent increase in cost. Basically, it adds 15 dollars a month per employee. Superintendent Becky Albrecht said a significant portion of the increase is because of fees associated with the federal health care law. She noted utilization of
the coverage has been low also contributing to a smaller increase in the rate. The base plan to continue with Blue Cross Blue Shield includes an employee premium of 446 dollars per month. A buy-up plan also is available.

Mrs. Albrecht recognized the assistance of Agent Justin Mitchell in working with the district on health insurance.

Summer school at Trenton begins May 28th at Rissler Elementary School.

Administrator Elisha Gass told the R-9 board of education 225 students have signed up as of noon yesterday. Because of a federal grant, breakfast and lunch will be served free of charge to all students. Bus transportation also will be provided. The theme is “camp read-a-lot.” Mrs. Gass explained the MyON program measures the reading and interest level of students and offers appropriate digital books. Reading levels are measured after every five books are read. Assessments will be given in reading only.

Summer school curriculum also includes math, communication arts, social studies, science, and exploratory classes with teachers targeting essential skills.

On May 27th, the day before summer school starts, milling will be in the south parking lot of Rissler school. Then in July, (after summer school ends June 27th) a three inch asphalt overlay is to be put down for an improved parking lot.

The board heard a Title One program evaluation by Tom Powell in reading and Mary Ellen Johnson in math; update from Becky Albrecht and Taya Ray on student I-pads for including review of a handbook on their use; approved M-S-B-A policies as recommended by the Superintendent; and the special education local compliance plan.

National Honor Society induction is today at 5:30 in the library / media center.

Graduation is Sunday at 2 o'clock in the Ketcham community center. High school Principal Dan Wiebers said last evening that 91 seniors are on track to be graduated including ten who've gone through programs at the Success Center.
