Thirty Washington 2nd-6th grade ELP students attended College For Kids Summer Enrichment Camp in Muscatine earlier this summer.

The students really enjoyed this great summer learning activity!

 
Fiscal Year 15 - What Happened (or didn’t) in Education Legislation PDF Print E-mail
Wednesday, July 09 2014 00:00

July 1st is the start of the new fiscal year. It is the start of a new year for public education. Whatever happened in the legislature this last spring becomes law as of July 1st. In terms of Education, the 2014 Legislative Session was pretty quiet. I will summarize the laws and action the Iowa Legislature enacted and one glaring action that did not occur that most impact Education.

 

State Supplemental Aid

 

The biggest thing that happened to Education was a lack of action in passing the State Supplemental Aid for FY 16. The Iowa Code states that the Iowa Legislature will take action on State Supplemental Aid for the following fiscal year within 30 days from the time the Governor sets the budget. This did not happen on a straight party line vote. The Iowa Senate passed a 6% increase in state aid for FY 16 on several occasions but the bill always died in the House in their unwillingness to take up the issue. This is the second time since I have been a superintendent that this has happened. The first time this occurred the growth figure was not finalized by the Iowa Legislature until late May of the following year creating chaos in a world where budgets must be certified in April. It is definitely a Republican versus Democrat issue as the votes are almost always party line votes.

At the end of the school year, the 6th graders from Washington Middle School visited Lake Belva Deer for their annual Adventure Day. The day introduced students to outdoor lifelong activities--- no electronics were allowed on this field trip! Students could go fishing, canoeing/ kayaking, create an ink print book using leaves, climb a portable rock wall, ride bikes, participate in team building exercises, go on a nature hike, or release their inner musical beast in a drum circle. Students cooked their own hot dogs & s'mores over campfires for part of their lunch. We would like to thank the approximately 45 volunteers that helped make this day a success!
