Droid Rage - Team #3381


Droid Rage - Team #3381


"We don't build robots...We build people."

Droid Rage Team #3381 is a FIRST robotics team based in Southern Manitowoc County. High school students from the area (Valders, Chilton, Reedsville, Howards Grove, Manitowoc Lutheran and Manitowoc Lincoln) meet at Valders High School to design, build and program a robot in six weeks to compete against other teams from around the globe in regional and international competitions. Additionally, the Communication and Marketing teams work throughout the season producing the website and Facebook page, press releases, open house events, the business plan, and a marketing portfolio to secure sponsorships. Each year the students must solve a new challenge that is kept secret until the first day of the robotics build season. The challenge for the season is released in early January and the teams are given until the third week of February -six weeks - to build a robot to play the game. The regional competitions are held in Milwaukee, WI March 10-12 and in Minneapolis, MN March 30-April 3. The World Championship is held April 27-30 in St. Louis, MO.

The Droid Rage - Team #3381 is hosting an open house on Sunday, February 20 from 1:00-3:00 pm at Valders High School Cafetorium. The team is hosting a Pancake Breakfast fundraiser on Sunday, March 20 at Valders High School Cafetorium. The public is welcome to attend both events to learn about the program and help the team.

New Seating Expectations for Athletic Events at CHS


New Seating Expectations for Athletic Events at CHS


chs_gymnasium_athletic_seatingIn an effort to comply with the Wisconsin Interscholastic Association's (WIAA) rules governing fan seating at WIAA tournament events in gymnasiums, Chilton High School is asking all student and adult fans to sit in the designated areas (click image to enlarge) for Boys and Girls Basketball events. The specific rule from the WIAA's season regulations manual states:

"The gym should be split in half at the midcourt line. All adult fans should be placed on the same side of the gym being placed behind their respective player bench. Student fans should be placed directly across from their adult fans. No student fans for any team should be placed behind their opponent's player bench." (WIAA 2010-2011 Winter Season Regulations, page 8)

Student and adult fans attending Boys or Girls Basketball events should review the image referenced above to find their designated seating location in the gymnasium and assist with the school's efforts to comply with the above WIAA rule by sitting in the correct area of the gym.


Understanding Fair Funding for Our Future


Understanding Fair Funding for Our Future


On November 15, 2010, Wisconsin State Superintendent of Public Instruction, Tony Evers, revealed his comprehensive plan “Fair Funding for Our Future” around the state.  The intent of this article is to summarize the proposal and how it would affect the School District of Chilton residents.

Some of the key components of the Fair Funding plan and what Evers hopes to achieve are as follows:

  • Increase guaranteed funding of all students from $1,000 to $3,000.  This would give the property rich districts, who in the past have received little to no aid, some aid to assist with the education of their students.
  • Move levy credit allocations to equalization aid.  Over the past six years, School aid has increased 1%, Categorical aids 20% and Levy Tax Credits 91%.  Levy credits are considered by the State a part of school funding.  The money allocated to levy credits is not distributed based on Equalized values, but rather by levy itself.  This causes a district to present an inflated levy rate to the tax payers.  The levy credit information is not given to school districts and as of the end of October, the information is not available.
  • Consolidate categorical aids.  Currently there are a number of small categorical aid categories.  This would combine all of the categorical aids and focus them on five high needs areas (Special Ed, High Cost Special Ed, Bilingual/Bicultural, SAGE and School Breakfast).
  • Maintain current growth to the Revenue Limits formula and establish predictable growth in state aids.  Currently $200 per pupil increase in the revenue limit formula is stated in law.  As was stated above, only 1% growth has been given to school aids over the past 6 years.  This plan looks to have the greater of 2% or CPI.

According to the information that was provided by Evers, Chilton district would receive a 4.4% increase in aid.  With this increase in state support, the 2010-2011 tax levy mill to our district tax payers would have dropped from $10.62 per thousand to $8.10 per thousand.  Chilton has not seen a tax rate this low since 2000 when the mill rate was $7.61 (lowest in 30+ years).

It is extremely early to assume that Evers' plan will be adopted fully or in part by the new legislation and at this time Governor Elect Walker has not presented a budget proposal, though his office has referenced the state’s $3 billion budget deficit.  K-12 education makes up 44% of the state’s budget, so one can only assume that education funding will have some changes.

I will keep you informed as more plans are released and additional information is attained.
