Eleva-Strum School Board reviews COVID-19 policy, district report card
CENTRAL - The Eleva-Strum School held its December meeting in the Central School Building Library back on the 8th.
The board reviewed the district report card issued by the Wisconsin Department of Public Instruction. Education has been disrupted by the COVID-19 pandemic which the DPI acknowledged school district overall scores would be negatively affected by said disruptions. However board members expressed sentiment to improve upon the district's 62.7 overall score which meet state expectations for school performance.
Speaking of COVID-19 policy, there was another review of mitigation efforts put in place this past fall to stop the spread of the disease. Right now just five persons at that time were reported with COVID-19 and district officials were pleased that some 132 persons attended a recent COVID-19 vaccination clinic.
The board approved hires and resignations, approved early college credit applications, and Neola-written policies for the district. They also review the district's science curriculum as the UW System science requirements will increase for the next school year. The district wants to include more science classes in areas of biology, chemistry, physics and agricultural sciences.
