  1. Superintendent’s Report:

Mr. Anastasio reported on COVID vaccines and how educators can access them. President Biden’s initiative is to vaccinate all educators of any age. The CDC, in partnership with the DOE, has initiated a process based on age. The goal is to get educators vaccinated as soon as possible.  Some people believe that once educators are vaccinated that will lead to opening up schools to all students.  Unfortunately, that is not the case unless the CDC changes the social distance requirements.  Because of the distance requirements, all students cannot attend school at the same time.

Mr. Anastasio said recent positive COVID cases have affected three of our schools.  Both Cony and Hussey are affected because a bus driver tested positive and had been driving the bus for two previous days. Twelve students from Cony and 20 from Hussey have been in close contact and are quarantining.  Farrington had a student who tested positive.  Thirty-four 34 students have been identified as close contacts, three staff members and the bus driver.

Mr. Anastasio reported that the issue with MaineCare billing has been addressed and resolved.

The school budget will be presented to the City Council April 6 at 6:30 p.m.

 

  1. Assistant Superintendent’s Report:

Ms. Grondin said Elena Sullivan was named Maine’s Teacher of the Year for ESOL.  The ESSER #1 grant that was rewritten to include the new Math program was approved and we can now move forward with purchasing it for grades K-5. The grades 6-8 Envision Program will be updated with funds from the general budget. The workshop day on April 19 will be the first ASD virtual workshop.  Eighteen staff members are doing presentations as well as over 16 out of district presenters.  Ms. Grondin thanked Cynthia Streznewski, technology mentor, for all of her hard work organizing and getting the signup program ready for staff and thanked Theresa Violette, Kim Silsby, Heather Gauthier and Teresa Beaudoin for their help.  She said we are using this opportunity to celebrate educators and to thank them for their hard work this year.

 

  1. Business Manager’s Report:

           Attachment 1

The business office has acquired eight new grants this year.  Final reimbursement for CRF #1 was received.  Due to Kim Willard’s diligence and dedication, we had very little trouble getting reimbursements.  New grants continue to come in as well as revisions on existing grants.

 

  1. Reports from Other School Officials:

Heather Gauthier, Principal of Lincoln School, said they have reinstated their Eagle tickets.  Students can earn tickets when staff recognize them for being kind, responsible and ready.  A school store was instituted and is sponsored by the PTC.  Students can save their tickets to spend at the school store.

Kim Silsby, Principal of Cony Middle/High School, said they are in the beginning stages of conversations on how they will be doing their celebrations with students in regards to graduation, 8th grade promotion, class day, etc.  They will be ready to talk with students and parents very soon.

Teresa Beaudoin, Principal of Farrington Elementary School, said the new trimester starts next week so any parents who want their child to go from remote to in person need to call and speak to the principal to make arrangements. The week of March 22 are parent/teacher conferences.  Parents can sign up on line.  The conferences will be via Zoom.

Theresa Violette, Director of Title One and Homeless Liaison, said they had a student learning and assessment night and there will be information coming out as a follow-up to families.

Susan Walters, Special Education Director, said the Unified Basketball Game is March 11 against Winthrop.  She said it is a great program that Cony has been involved in for a number of years.  It allows students that have disabilities to play basketball.  They have mentors that support them during the game.  They have a lot of fun and it is a lot of fun to watch.

Spring sports signups have started and can be found on line under the Cony Athletics page.  Chizzle Wizzle production has started for this year and the show should air sometime in May.  We had course signups for grades 9-11.  Parent/teacher conferences were held the other week. We had some regional tournaments for winter sports, open house for 8th graders was on March 8 via Zoom.  The senior class held an ice-fishing derby as a fundraiser and raised over $10,000.  JMG is asking to bring in boxes of cereal as donations and there is $125 reward for the student who brings in the most boxes.
