Are you confused when you see your student’s Iowa Assessments Profile Narrative?  Do you know if your student is proficient or not in reading, math and science?

We have created a narrated slideshow to help answer some of your questions about this state test.  We hope this will answer some of your questions and explain the scores generated from these assessments.  If you have any other questions please feel free to talk with your student’s teacher.

    8. Just a reminder that eligibility is figured at semester. Please start reminding your students of this fact and that the penalty is 30 days they have to sit out of their current sport or of their next sport they are participating in.




    9. There was a city council meeting this week, and the city is going to start issuing parking tickets--- mainly for vehicles in the street when city crews are trying to plow snow. But it was mentioned that a few students park the wrong way on the west parking lots, and it is possible they could get a ticket.

    For the first 2 weeks, they city will give out warning tickets, but after that, each violation will be $10. If they go unpaid, they will be attached on a lien on the title to the vehicle, and the owner won't be able to re-register the vehicle until it's paid.

    We wanted to give all the students, and of course teachers a heads up about this, and just a reminder when it snows, vehicles must be off the city street.

    Off the street during and 24 hours after the end of any snow fall as per city code.

  • 1:30 Dismissals on Tuesday (August 23) and Wednesday (August 24).
