Mrs. Albrecht said 20 staff members would be joining the district this year, with classes beginning August 20th. She noted that Kris Ockenfels is the Director of Supportive Services. Mrs. Olson was employed as an assistant principal at Rissler School, the largest populated building in the school district.

Mrs. Albrecht told about installation of fiber optic cable to connect all buildings in the district, including the bus barn. The district also plans to provide bus transportation for all pre-school children for the first time this fall. Seventh and eighth grade students will be using iPads as part of their curriculum this year with the high school added next year.

Mrs. Albrecht mentioned Trenton received a 95 percent score on its annual performance report for 2013-14. She noted that's much improved over last year, which had been the first year the state implemented new performance standards. Mrs. Albrecht commended students, teachers and parents for working hard to meet the new standards, including a perfect score for graduation rates and a near-perfect score for both attendance and academic achievement.

Mrs. Boon said there are seven new staff members at Rissler School as  well as 515 students registered thus far in grades preschool through four. There are 20 new students at the school, with an open house Monday August 18th.

Mrs. Olson told about her experience in education, including being a classroom teacher, a director of elementary instruction and an instructor coach. She and her husband, Andy, a native of Jamesport, have two children. She also is a former Rotary exchange student.
