Ebben Field Fundraising Progress

Volume 9, Number 1

Donations sought for Ebben Field Renovations Submitted by the Ebben Field Renovation Committee The Ebben Field Renovation Committee is very pleased to report that fundraising efforts are off to a fantastic start. So far, $179,000 has been pledged by the School, community and school organizations, local businesses, individuals, and families. Contributions received to date have allowed the Committee to begin the much needed upgrades and repairs to the concession stand and restrooms. New concrete pads have been poured and new fixtures, shelving and cabinetry will be installed. The renovations will be completed in September and will include a new ticket window and improved restroom facilities and serving area for residents, students, and visitors. Thanks to all who have already made contributions in support of Ebben Field. Your donations are greatly appreciated! However, we

still need your help to reach our goal of $525,000. The vision for Ebben Field is to provide an athletic facility which will compliment the tradition of academic excellence that Kohler Public Schools are known for while supporting efforts to attract and retain the area’s best students. Equally important are the benefits that these improvements will bring to the Village of Kohler Recreation Department, whose programs serve all Village residents and comprise over 50% of current Ebben field utilization. Donations are still needed to complete upgrades on the track, athletic fields and facility infrastructure. Let’s make the vision of Ebben Field a reality for the residents of the Village of Kohler and the students of Kohler Public Schools. For more information about contribution opportunities, please contact Doug Bocchini at

Coming this fall to the Bethany Book Club in Kohler

Why “The Story�? In the last issue of the Kohler Villager, we introduced the new Bethany Book Club where we will be reading and discussing “The Story� by christian author, Max Lucado. But why “The Story�? Many people are intimidated by the Bible. The Bethany Book Club (BBC) sees “The Story� as a way to break down societal culture barriers in learning what the Bible teaches. There is so much misinformation about the God of the Bible. “The Story� was created to help introduce people to the Bible. Many people are inquisitive but don’t know where to start. “The Story� gives the opportunity to take the first step in learning about the most talked about but least understood book in history. The BBC is making “The Story� available to you for $5. The book lists for $20 but Bethany Lutheran Church in conjunction with Son Light Books and Gifts is able to bring this special discount to you. Just bring a

This smile brought to you by

copy of “The Story� article from the Kohler Villager with you and we will order one for you. We will be taking orders beginning Sunday August 4th, at Bethany Lutheran Church’s Annual Neighborhood Picnic, through August 26 at Bethany (222 Church Street, Kohler). It is our hope that Villagers purchasing “The Story� would enjoy participating in the Bethany Book Club’s weekly discussion hours that will be held at the Village Hall if enough interest is shown. Please call the church office if you are interested in ordering a book or if you have any questions. Bethany Office Hours: (orders will be taken) Office Phone: (920)457-4681 M - 8am - 12pm T - 5pm - 9pm W - 8am - 12pm Sat - 8am - 12pm

Board of Education Regular Meeting Minutes June 10, 2013 Call to Order

Consent Agenda

Marlene Yang called the meeting to order at 7:04 p.m. in the Kohler Public Library. Roll Call was taken by Laura Kohler. The following board members were present: Marlene Yang, Diane Kelly, Laura Kohler, Matt Kautzer and John Suralik.

Approval of May, 2013 Regular Board Minutes Approval of Invoices Reports of the Finance Committee—no reports Reports of the Committee of the Whole – Recommendation to approve 3 year tech/library media plan. Recommendation to approve digital citizenship curriculum and staffing.

Statement of Public Notice June 7, 2013 Approval of Agenda John Suralik moved to approve the agenda. Diane Kelly seconded the motion. All ayes. Board President’s Report Marlene appointed Matt Kautzer, John Suralik and Marlene Yang to the Finance Committee The Wisconsin Joint Finance Committee has approved expansion of the school voucher program beyond Milwaukee and Racine. The state assembly and senate need to pass this program. All the graduation ceremonies were wonderful. Congratulations to everyone involved. Superintendent’s Report The National Blue Ribbon Schools application review process is nearing completion. At this time, the only step remaining for Kohler High School to receive the award is for DPI to verify the school met required Annual Measurable Objectives (AMOs) or made Adequate Yearly Progress (AYP) for the 2012-2013 school year. In mid-September, U.S. Secretary of Education, Arne Duncan, will make the official announcement of the 2013 National Blue Ribbon Schools. The end of the year ceremonies were wonderful. Over one million dollars was awarded in scholarships at Honors Night. Baccalaureate was intimate, personal and reflective. Tradition prevailed over bad weather at Scroll Night. The graduates truly were the show at commencement. Wisconsin Act 32 is the law that says Wisconsin has to have a student information system (SIS). The Joint Finance Committee retracted the funding for one system.. The state will have multiple vendors; consequently, there will not be just one tool for educator effectiveness. The strategic plan needs to reflect these changes to the state mandates. Review of District Finances Matt Kautzer reported the committee discussed the preliminary budget. There is a surplus of $30,000 based on enrollment estimates. The September pupil count and revenue limits are the large variables regarding the budget.

STUDENT RECORDS NOTICE The Kohler School District maintains student records for each student attending school in the District. These records include; 1) student progress records (i.e., courses taken, grades, attendance, immunizations, extra-curricular activities), and 2) student behavioral records (i.e., standardized achievement tests, psychological tests, personality evaluations, records of conversations, written statements relating to an individual student’s behavior, student physical health other than immunizations, law enforcement records obtained by the District and other student records which are not progress records). Further, the District has designated the following student record information as directory data: student’s name, address, telephone number, date of birth, participation in officially recognized activities and sports, weight and height of members of athletic teams, dates of attendance, photographs, degrees and awards received and name of school most recently previously attended by the student. This information may be disclosed to any person unless the eligible student, or parent, legal guardian, or guardian ad litem of a minor student informs the school within fourteen (14) days of receipt of this notice that all or any part of the directory data may not be released without the prior consent of the eligible student, parent, legal guardian, or guardian ad litem. This designation will remain in effect until it is modified by the written direction of the eligible student or the parent, legal guardian, or guardian ad litem of a minor student. State and Federal laws require that the maintenance of student records assure confidentiality. Accordingly, the following shall

apply in the District: A. An eligible student, or the parent(s)/guardian of a minor student, has the right to inspect, review, and obtain copies of the student’s school records upon request in accordance with established District procedures. Copies of the District’s student records procedures are available upon request at the District Office, 333 Upper Road Kohler. Regular office hours are 8:00 a.m. to 4:00 p.m., Monday through Friday.

pany with whom the District has contracted to perform a specific task (such as an attorney, auditor, medical consultant, or therapist); or a parent or student serving on an official committee such as a disciplinary or grievance committee, or assisting another school official in performing his/her tasks. A school official has a “legitimate educational interests” if the official needs to review a student record in order to fulfill his/her professional or District responsibility.

B. An eligible student, or the parent(s) or guardian of a minor student, has the right to request the amendment of the student’s school records if s/he believes the records are inaccurate or misleading. Complaints regarding the content of student records may be made in accordance with established District procedures. Copies of the District’s procedures are available upon request as outlined above.

The District shall transfer a student’s record to another school or school district without consent upon request in accordance with State law. District procedures outline the specific reasons for disclosure without consent and are available upon request as outlined above.

C. An eligible student, or the parent(s)/guardian of a minor student, has the right to consent to the disclosure of information contained in the student’s school records, except to the extent that State and Federal laws authorize disclosure without consent. One exception that permits disclosure without consent is disclosure to school officials determined to have legitimate educational interests, including safety interests, in the records. A “school official” is a person employed by the District who is required by the Department of Public Instruction to hold a license; a person employed by or working on behalf of the District as an administrator, supervisor, instructor, or support staff member (including health or medical staff and policeschool liaison officers); a person serving on the Board of Education; a person or com-

D.

The name and address of the office that administers FERPA is: Family Policy Compliance Office, U.S. Department of Education, 400 Maryland Avenue SW, Washington DC 20202-4605. Student progress records shall be retained permanently after the student ceases to be enrolled in the District. All student behavioral records will be destroyed one (1) year after the date the student graduates from or last attends a school in the District unless the student, or the parent/guardian of a minor student, gives permission that the records may be maintained for a longer period of time.

Village Meetings Scheduled for August 8/5 Property Committee 4:30 pm 8/5 Finance Committee 5:00 pm 8/7 Library Noon (at library) 8/12 Village Board 5:30 pm 8/22 Plan Commission 4:30 pm 8/26 Board of Review 5:00 pm All meetings are held at Kohler Village Hall, 319 Highland Drive, unless otherwise indicated.

From Clerk/ Treasurer Laurie Lindow Open Book and Board of Review The Village Assessor will be holding an Open Book session at the Village Hall on Tuesday, August 20th. To schedule an appointment with the assessor, please call Associated Appraisal at 1-800721-4157. Open Book is an opportunity for property owners to meet with the assessor and examine the records for their property and discuss how the assessment was made. Time spent discussing your assessment with the assessor may eliminate the need for a formal appeal to the Board of Review. At open book, the assessor is allowed to make any changes that are necessary to perfect the assessment roll. The Village of Kohler Board of Review will meet Monday, August 26th beginning at 5:00 p.m. Property owners that want to appear before the Board of Review to appeal their assessment must provide the clerk-treasurer with written or oral notice of their intent to file an objection at least 48 hours before the meeting of the Board. Also, a written and signed Form of Objection to Property Assessment must be filled out and filed with the clerk within the first 2 hours of the Board’s first scheduled meeting.

From Police Chief Bill Rutten Phone Scams I received a call from a longtime Kohler Village resident. They relayed that someone called and tried to scam them. The caller posed as their grandson who was in trouble (jail out of state) and needed money. The resident was strung along, but ultimately didn’t get scammed. However, they had

their emotions preyed on and needed to contact family members to feel reassured. The scammers won’t give a name, but will use a name after you may say “Danny is that you?” They then use your goodwill against you. If you suspect that you are being scammed, ask for a call back number, etc. They will typically be scared away. Never give out your personal information, especially banking info or credit card numbers. You can always call our department and we can assist if you need to.

From Public Works Superintendent Bruce Neerhof Noxious Weeds/Grass Length According to Village Ordinance 8.24, it is the duty of every homeowner to destroy all noxious weeds on their property before they go to seed. Examples of noxious weeds are Canadian thistle, English charlock, wild mustard, creeping jenny, goatsbeard and cotton-bearing trees.
