WITC

Goals set for combining schools
A review of goals from Tainter and Jefferson elementary schools and ways to accomplish combining the schools was discussed at the Monday, July14 meeting of the Rice Lake Board of Education.
Principal Steve Sirek said both schools had similar goals last school year of reviewing, analyzing and using literacy data and providing targeted interventions where needed to have 80% of students reach benchmark scores.
While the scores at both schools fell short of the 80% goal, data showed progress is being made. He credited that to the 2 hours a week of common collaboration time among teachers and the 30 minutes daily for small group interventions for students to address areas they need extra help to achieve.
Board member Gary Spear asked about the 20% who do not meet expectations and keep falling further behind. Sirek said making groups as small as two or three, even one-on-one, is one way to help those who have fallen behind.
"We need to be more ...

UW-Barron County offers new degree path
A program at UW-Barron County is opening a new degree path for technical college graduates.
Students with an associate degree from any Wisconsin technical college can now use that degree as a stepping stone toward a Bachelor of Applied Arts and Sciences degree exclusively at UW-Barron County. Applications for fall enrollment are open now, said Dean Yohnk, dean and CEO of the Rice Lake campus.
Under the new program, any technical college associate degree will count as the first 60 credits toward the minimum of 120 needed for a BAAS degree. In the past, only an Associate of Arts and Science degree from UW-Barron County or an equivalent liberal arts college degree was accepted. UW-Barron County is the first campus in the state approved to offer the program.
"This program opens the ...

WITC online offers among best in nation
Wisconsin Indianhead Technical College has been named among the nation's top 100 online colleges for the 2014 academic year by "BestColleges.com."
According to the publication, criteria for the ranking included only 4-year and 2-year colleges that offer at least one fully online degree. Statistics from the National Center for Education were also used to evaluate the online college programs.
The list was then judged against four criteria:
• Acceptance rate of first-time, undergraduate students admitted to the college out of all who applied;
• Retention rate of first-time, undergraduate students who completed their first year and returned the following year;
• Graduation rate of full-time, first-time students who graduated from the program;
• Enrollment rate of students admitted into the college who then actually enrolled, indicating the college is within the top choices for those students.
For those who ...

Groundbreaking ceremonies for the Cameron Elementary School are this Thursday, June 19 at 2 p.m.
At its Monday night, June 16 meeting Cameron School Board members approved the general contractor bid by R.J. Jurowski of Whitehall in the amount of $12,752,000.
"This bid is approximately $225,000 under budget," said Joe Leschisin, assistant district supervisor. "Despite the fact that the high school addition bids came in over budget, we are under budget in the other two projects so the overall referendum budget is in very good shape.
"Demolition in the high school started June 9," said Leschisin. "Despite the continued rain, we are still on schedule with the high school addition, track and football fields.
"As such, we are still scheduled to play our first home football game at the new field on Friday, Sept. 12," he said.
Leschisin said he is still working on the Veterans Plaza project, which will be located at the north end of the track and football field at the new facility beside the scoreboard. The project will not only remember past veterans but pay homage to those who have more recently served.
