District News

The following letter was sent to Senator Devin LeMahieu and Representative Paul Tittl by the Chilton Board of Education:

To Senator Devin LeMahieu and Representative Paul Tittl,

As the elected officials representing the School District of Chilton, we, the members of the Chilton Board of Education, respectfully request that you work with your legislative colleagues to support increased funding for public education in the current budget proposal for the benefit of all Wisconsin public school students.

Prior to 1993, when revenue limits were put into place to control increases to taxpayers, the School District of Chilton was a low spending District. Since that time, our District has remained a low spending District. Our current per pupil expenditures are below the State average. For 2013-2014, the state average for instructional costs (general and special education funds) per student were $13,291; Chilton's instructional costs were $10,516 or 21% below the state average. The state average revenue per student (general and special education funds) was $13,390; Chilton's revenue was only $10,405, again, 22% below the state average. Through careful management and planning, we have worked diligently to control costs while still providing an excellent educational program that focuses on all students reaching their potential. As a low spending district, we believe we continue to be penalized through a state funding system that provides less and less support to our efforts, while levels of accountability rise, student poverty increases, and student needs (ELL and Special Education) grow exponentially.

Severe Weather and School Closings

Severe Weather and School Closings

 

A message from Dr. Claire Martin.........

A question that many people ask me – especially during the cold winter months is, "How cold does it have to be in order to close school?" Although there really is no "hard and fast" rule, the general standard/guideline that the Chilton Public Schools follow for school closings due to severe cold and wind chills is: -20 degrees temperature, and/or with sustained wind chills of -35 and below. There needs to be some point at which this decision is made. This is the guideline that I follow when making the decision for school cancellations or delays due to severely cold temperatures and/or wind chills.

School Security

School Security

 

Dear School District of Chilton Parents/Guardians,

At the start of the new school year, with input from parents, Board Members, and school safety professionals, the School District of Chilton has been working toward improved safety measures, especially in our school entrance areas.

Recently, door entrance security was added to Chilton Elementary and Middle School. Due to additional hardware that must be ordered for the Middle School, the Middle School is not yet ready for electronic entry. However, the Elementary School is now admitting visitors to the school through a locked/buzz-in system, as has been in place at the District and High School offices. We anticipate that the Middle School will be fully functioning, like our other buildings, by the end of next week.

In addition to the door locking systems, opaque film has also been added to several of the windows surrounding the main entrances of the schools. This safety feature was recommended after a comprehensive review of our facilities and endorsed by the Calumet County Sherriff's Department. Typically on the other side of these doors/windows, we can have several hundred children eating lunch, lining up for busses, or preparing to exit the building for recess. The opaque film prevents line of sight of these large groups of students within the buildings.

If you have any questions, or concerns, regarding our progress toward enhanced security in our schools, please don't hesitate to contact me. I can be reached at: martinc@chilton.k12.wi.us, or by phone at: (920) 849-8109.

Thank you for your patience and understanding, as we implement these changes in our schools.

Dr. Claire Martin
Superintendent
School District of Chilton
