Council
supports
church move
JIM FEROLIE
Verona Press editor
The Verona Common
Council doesnt often get to
see a packed house deliver a
loud, extended applause.
But Monday night alders
got to see a lot of that, as
more than 70 people clapped
vigorously after nearly every
positive statement about the
planned move of Sugar Riv-
er United Methodist Church
into an old bowling alley.
They applauded loudly
nine separate times for three
congregation members
pleas in support of the move
and six alders declarations
of support. They added
another for council president
Elizabeth Doyles joke about
them being there to see her
debut chairing a council
meeting. And they whooped
and hollered several more
times out in the parking lot
just loudly enough to dis-
rupt the next discussion and
invite another joke.
We s houl d i nvi t e
them every week, Ald.
Mac McGilvray (Dist. 1)
quipped.
Almost as funny was that
the council wasnt even
allowed to vote on the issue
it was simply an initial
review for a permit to move
into the downtown district.
But like anyone else, they
could count the votes and
see the next step in their
10-year-old churchs rapid
growth expanding into the
building formerly known as
Wildcat Lanes would not
be denied.
Key to the jubilant reac-
tion was the support of
McGilvray and Ald. Evan
Touchett (D-4), both of
whom voted in favor of an
ordinance two years ago
that gave the city the ability
to block churches and other
indoor institutional uses
from moving downtown.
Those two and Alds. Jack
Linder (D-2) and Luke Diaz
(D-3) all said they had felt
some skepticism but were
won over by various aspects
of the churchs presentation.
Di az l i ked how t he
churchs building committee
took the time to figure out
how much the city would
be losing in taxes (between
$6,000 and $8,500 annu-
ally). That reasonable

This city has lacked
a place for youth
to kind of hang
out. Because of the
size of this place, it
has great potential
for this kind of

Behavior program spreading throughout district
SCOTT GIRARD
Unified Newspaper Group
When a student has trouble reading,
its a schools job to fix the problem.
The same goes for math and every
other academic subject.
And, according to a new initiative
spreading through Verona elemen-
tary schools and across the country,
behavior should be treated the same.
Just like kids learn math, reading,
they learn about behavioral expec-
tations, too, said Country View
Elementary School counselor Eliza-
beth Kraemer. So we want to have a
universal curriculum that everyones
learning the same expectations and
then the understanding is that just
like with reading and math, some kids
need more repetition, behavioral.
The Positive Behavioral Interven-
tions and Supports initiative, which
is being fully or partially embraced at
every elementary school in the Vero-
na Area School District, came from
research in the 1980s on how to better
intervene with children with behav-
ioral disorders.
It eventually expanded after the
term was included in the reauthoriza-
tion of the Americans with Disabili-
ties Act in 1997.
The program includes multiple
tiers, with the first expected to reach
around 80 percent of students. Once
a school is deemed successful at that
level, it can receive Tier 2 training
to target the remaining students who
may not have responded to the PBIS
The discipline is meant to
reshape their thinking and
help them understand how
they couldve fixed it.

Morning mishap
Police take a statement from a bus driver Monday morning after he was involved in an accident with a 15-year-old boy on a bicycle.
Verona police Lt. Dave Dresser told the Verona Press in an email the student was late for school and crossed against the light while the
bus was making a turn. The boy was taken by ambulance to a hospital as a precaution but was uninjured, Dresser wrote. He was also ver-
bally warned for his fault in the collision.

basics, which include simple expec-
tations like making eye contact, lis-
tening respectfully and flushing the
toilet after theyre done.
After the 1997 legislation, PBIS
began to spread around the Unit-
ed States, and many states began
requiring its implementation in
schools. Wisconsin has not required
its implementation, but Verona ele-
mentary schools began taking a look
when Sugar Creek first tried the pro-
gram in 2010.
Principal Todd Brunner said the
initiative has worked wonders as the
school has earned national recogni-
tion for its implementation, which
usually takes three to five years.
We essentially tried everything
we could that worked and nothing
was enough, Brunner said of the
time before the school implemented
PBIS. What we realized was we
needed something bigger than us.
We needed to look at our systems,
our training.
We needed to stop blaming the
kids.
Frequent recognition
The core of the program focuses
on rewarding students when they
meet expectations. The program
and individual schools outline these
expectations in different areas of the
school, such as on the bus or in the
lunchroom.
Whether through Golden Lunch
Trays at Glacier Edge and Sugar
Creek for good lunchroom behav-
ior or Paws Up tickets at Country
View that can be redeemed for raffle
tickets or special days, the program
asks teachers and administrators to
ensure students consciously recog-
nize their good behavior.
At Core Knowledge Charter
School, where they are in the first
year of implementation, director
Brett Stousland keeps a ribbon
tree in his office, which is covered
in ribbons students tied on after
getting recognition. Stousland also
brings the tree to each school assem-
bly and asks the students with a rib-
bon on it to stand.
The first time I did it there was
only maybe 15, 20 kids who stood,
and now were at 90 percent,
Stousland said. I think it helps
(teachers) generate some more posi-
tives in their classroom.
Consistent expectations
One of the initiatives most
important components is establish-
ing consistency in all settings so that
students, teachers and administra-
tors can all be on the same page with
how students should behave and
what is or is not worthy of punish-
ment.
That sends such a conflicting
message to little kids as they go
from room to room to room, Brun-
ner said of inconsistent expectations
among different teachers. Every-
body had their own thought about
what was OK.
Brunner said SC trains every new
teacher it hires on its expectations in
the classroom and other settings to
ensure students get the consistency
they need.
But the students still need to
learn those expectations, and that
involves putting time in early in
the year to show students what is
appropriate and what is not.
Most of the elementary schools
now spend at least part of a day at
the beginning of the year to take
kids around to the different places
expectations are required, such as
bathrooms and lunchrooms.
If we put all of our effort in in
the beginning and we teach them
the expectation and we acknowl-
edge when theyre doing the right
thing, the hope is that theyre not
going to do the wrong thing as
much, were not going to have to
deal with the discipline as much,
GE psychologist and PBIS coach
Amy Nolting said. Were going
to get to spend more time learning,
teaching.
At Country View, the school
takes videos of the students fulfill-
ing the expectations for teachers to
revisit throughout the year if need-
ed, and there are posters around the
school outlining the schools Build
IT tools, which offer an outline for
how to behave in different areas.
Discipline remains
The positive reinforcement
doesnt mean students poor behav-
ior goes without repercussions.
One of the misconceptions
about PBIS is that there isnt disci-
pline attached to it, and there defi-
nitely is, said GE principal The-
resa Taylor. Theres still missed
recess and phone calls home and
writing an apology letter, all those
things that we continue but again
the discipline is meant to reshape
their thinking and help them under-
stand how they couldve fixed it.
At Sugar Creek, Brunner said
students still have to work out prob-
lems, but now they do it among
themselves with some guidance
from the adults who were involved,
rather than immediately sending a
student to the office and creating an
authoritative reputation for the prin-
cipal.
Instead of the office is the bad
guy, its kind of closely connected
to restorative justice, Brunner said.
They sort of own that problem with
the adult that was there. You sent
yourself to the office so youve
got to fix it with them here in my
presence.
At CKCS, Stousland said the pos-
itive reinforcement -- the tree in his
office -- can even help send a mes-
sage to a student in trouble.
Even the kids that come in here
for discipline reasons, the first thing
they see is that tree, he said. Thats
that reminder, without even saying
anything, look at all these kids that
are doing great things.
In some cases, it can even mean
negative behaviors are recognized
and pointed out more often, as a
result of increased data collection.
Were really actually reacting
more than we were in the past by
having this because were docu-
menting everything that were see-
ing, really, Taylor said.
Data-driven
That documentation is a key com-
ponent of full implementation of
PBIS.
To qualify as an official PBIS-cer-
tified school, a school has to submit
its data on behavior issues, specifi-
cally the number of Office Disci-
pline Referrals, or ODRs, which
indicate the time, setting and type of
behavior a student was punished for.
We had some data, but more
what wed call major incidences,
but we didnt have the kid who was
sent down for a 10-minute break,
Stousland said. But we should.
Having that data allows adminis-
trators to track when the most trou-
ble occurs and what setting it occurs
in, such as second-grade recess at
Sugar Creek, with data specific
enough to recognize problems had
only become regular when footballs
were introduced.
The data was telling us some-
thing, and what it was is that they
didnt know how to play football,
Brunner said.
That knowledge allowed them to
add another supervisor for a time to
teach the kids how to play football
without fighting.
According to Brunner, the data
theyve been able to collect has
led to national recognition for their
behavioral changes, specifically as
the school has closed the gap in dis-
proportionate punishments for Afri-
can-American boys.
Were still disproportional but
its not nearly what it used to be, he
said.
Some schools that are working
with some of the PBIS framework
arent as far along with the data
aspect, such as Country View, but
Kraemer hopes the school will get
there eventually.
And at New Century School,
where they reviewed the school-
wide expectations last fall to better
establish the program, director Jim
Ruder said the data could affect the
schools schedule for next year.
Its helping us make those deci-
sions as we look at the schedule for
next year, he said, whether thats
adding a new recess period based on
when recess problems are occurring
or knowing what skills to reteach.
Different approaches
While the program sets out basic
standards and ideas for how to
reward students, it also allows for
personalization at different schools
with different communities and
issues.
Its not like a canned program,
said Nolting. You can do what fits
your building and your staff and
your students. You can make it your
own, but yet its still following that
framework.
We actually have data that speaks
to what behavior really looks like at
Glacier Edge and we can measure
change. If were not seeing what we
want, the data tells us where we need
to focus our attention next.
That leaves some schools in the
district with the ability to take cer-
tain ideas from PBIS, such as the
positive reinforcement or consistent
expectations, while not subscribing
fully to the program itself.
Thats how Country View and
Verona Area International School
are approaching their behavioral
programs, as they work out the best
combination of features from PBIS
and other behavioral programs.
Stoner Prairie principal Mike
Pisani, whose school is in its first
year of looking at PBIS and will offer
trainings to its teachers in August,
said the positive reinforcement ideas
make the approach stand out.
Its like anything that you do
the first time as an adult, if some-
body was there saying, You did
this wrong, you did this wrong,
you did this wrong, Pisani said.
You dont need somebody to point
out what you did wrong; you need
someone to point to what to do right.
Positives doesnt really create
conflict. It doesnt mean its just all
sunshine, it means when things are
going the way theyre supposed to,
we highlight that.
The schools also offer different
types of rewards, with some, like
at Country View, opting for par-
ties or a game of kickball with the
lunch staff, while others, like Gla-
cier Edge, choose recognition over
the announcements and calls home
to parents for good behavior. But the
schools will continue to innovate, as
well, like having a golden plunger
to reward bathroom behavior next
year at GE.
I think well always feel like
were implementing, because it will
be important for us every year to look
at the new teachers we have in the
building, the new students we have
in the building, Taylor said. Its
always relooking at whats working,
what maybe has lost its momentum.

Prairie Enthusiasts trip May 22
The diverse 9-acre Sug-
ar River Oak Savanna is
a preserve of The Prairie
Enthusiasts and managed
by the Empire-Sauk Chap-
ter. Although it still shows
signs of past use as a pas-
ture, it is recovering nicely
with nearly 400 native
plant species now present.
It has been managed with
frequent fire since 1976.
People are welcome to
visit the preserve from
6-7: 30 p. m. Thursday,
May 22, on a trip to see a
wide array of late-spring
wildflowers should be in
bloom, including wood
bet ony, shoot i ng st ar,
cream wild indigo, wild
lupine, and golden Alex-
ander.
From the intersection of
CTH M and PD (north of
Verona and SW of Madi-
son) take PD west 3. 0
miles to Timber Lane, turn
right (north) on to Timber
Lane and then immedi-
ately turn left into a joint
driveway. Proceed to the
brick house (2845 Tim-
ber Lane, Verona, WI in
Google maps). Park in
mowed lawn (please do
not block the neighbors
driveway).

some of the native species
may not be in full bloom
yet, she will help partici-
pants identify some of the
plants along the trail. The

The Best News
I have sometimes lamented that the problem with life is
not that we are not loved, but that we are not loved suf-
ficiently. We all desire to be loved just a bit more than we
currently are and perhaps appreciated a bit more for just
how wonderful we think we are. But, in reality, we are loved
perfectly by God. We shouldnt expect so much from our
fellow man; family and friends do their best to love and be
loved in return, but we are not the best lovers. The prize for
best lover clearly goes to God, who made each of us perfect
in our own way, and who loves us despite our failings. And
what is more, he made the ultimate sacrifice, humbling
Himself to appear in human form, being born in the hum-
blest of circumstances, and subsequently suffering an igno-
minious death usually reserved for the worst of criminals,
and doing all of this to give us a good example and to atone
for our sins. So rejoice in this best of news: you are infinitely
loved!
- Christopher Simon via Metro News Service
In this the love of God was made manifest among us, that
God sent his only Son into the world, so that we might live
through him. In this is love, not that we have loved God but
that he loved us and sent his Son to be the propitiation for
our sins.

the annual summer festival,
and the rest of the chamber
loved it.
Itll be a nice way to
ki ck off t he fest i val ,
VACC executive direc-
tor Karl Curtis said. Its
something to involve the
entire community. Its just
fun, and we want the festi-
val to be fun.
Cur t i s wi l l hi de t he
medallion in its location
somewhere i n Verona,
either the city or the town,
and offer five clues the
chamber will reveal on its
website, Facebook page
and the Hometown Days
Facebook page beginning
Thursday, June 5.
The clues will get more
specific as the week goes
on until someone finds the
medallion and returns it to
the chamber with $250
in cash as the prize.
Curtis said hes already
determined the location
and written the clues, but
did not want to give other
details about the possible
locations.
Once the Pre-Home-
t own Days event i s
over, t hough, t he June
12-15 fest i val wi l l be
mostly the same as it has
for the past few years,
despite being run by its
third organization in the
past three years. The past
two festivals were run by
Brava Enterprises, which
fi l l ed t he gap bet ween
the now defunct Verona
Community Betterment
nonprofit organization and
the chamber.
As always, it will have
a few small changes in
the lineup of activities and
entertainers. And there
will be one new event, a
Sunday afternoon corn-
hole/beanbag tournament
organized by Wisconsin
Brewing Company. It will
have a nominal entry fee,
due by June 5, Curtis said,
but the winning team will
get at least $100.
It will be held in the
beer tent and will be lim-
ited to ages 18 and older.
And while the Friday
and Saturday night head-
line bands are area favor-
ites Cherry Pie and Madi-
son County, the chamber
is bringing in a Thursday
night band thats new to
Hometown Days.
The Cha r m Sc hool
Rej ect s, a band Curt i s
said plays more modern,
danceable music and is
popular around Madison,
will provide entertainment
beginning at 6 p.m. on the
WIS-DIS stage prior to
the Home Talent baseball
game at 7 p.m. and fire-
works at 9 p.m.
Curt i s sai d al t hough
hes heard questions about
why the fireworks are on
Thursday, its important
to plan them early in case
poor weat her forces a
reschedule.
Other traditional events,
from spin-the-wheel to
kids events on Thursday,
will all be back.
Were following pretty
much the same template
that weve had in the past
years simply because we
didnt have any time to
make any major changes,
he said. We wanted to
just have a good festival
this year.
Curtis also urged any-
one interested in signing
up for the parade to do so
as soon as possible. The
deadline is June 6, but
about half of the 80 spots
are already filled, he said.
The parade application
and other information can
be found at veronahome-
towndays.com or at the
chamber office.
Many of the same enter-
tainers are back includ-
ing the popular ZooZort
and local balloon artist
as well as the market-
place, which Brava had
started last year.
Curt i s sai d t he pl an-
ning is going really well
and the only real concerns
have been the uncertainty
of putting on the event
for the first time and hav-
ing to say no to paid acts
looking to be part of the
festivities.
Theres kind of a tem-
plate in place, he said.
Its been really easy that
way.

amount, as Diaz put it, made
it easier for Linder, a longtime
Plan Commission member, to
get off the fence, particularly
in light of their substantial
planned investment into
upgrading the buildings look
and adding decorative green
space off Verona Avenue.
Touchett and McGilvray
both were impressed by the
sales pitch, including a
commitment to outreach
far beyond their congrega-
tion and, even moreso, the
huge turnout. McGilvray was
particularly impressed that
church members hoped to
provide a place where middle
school and high school stu-
dents would feel welcomed.
This city has lacked a
place for youth to kind of
hang out, he said. Because
of the size of this place, it has
great potential for this kind of
mission.
That outreach became
another source of levity, when
Touchett mistook their plan
to reach 10,000 people for
a goal of having 10,000 fami-
lies in the congregation.
Despite the large crowd,
Sugar Rivers members
avoided a long, drawn-out
meeting by having only two
speak during public com-
ments while their building
committees chair, Brian
Driscoll, highlighted infor-
mation that had already been
presented, either the week
before at Plan Commission or
in the councils thick packet.
Driscoll pointed out the
churchs history, with roots
going back to 2001, an offi-
cial opening in 2004 and the
congregation size doubling
since it moved into the old
public library on Franklin
Street in 2006. He empha-
sized the churchs many
community-based programs
(including hosting the Verona
Food Pantry in its basement),
its inviting space and its
plan to have its doors be open
to anyone in the community.
But he also was practi-
cal, pointing out that Wildcat
Lanes has been in receiver-
ship for almost three years
without a single formal offer
to purchase, the propertys
declining value and the sug-
gested willingness of the
church to do whatever it
needed to do to get the coun-
cils approval.
The biggest reason to say
no, other than tax implica-
tions, would be that the citys
2-month-old downtown plan
envisions a complete redevel-
opment of the property with a
new signature building, as
it is a major entry point.
Alders did ask a few nuts-
and-bolts questions about
the move, including whether
there would be a steeple (no)
and whether the facility could
accommodate continued rapid
growth (yes). And of course,
they couldnt get through the
night without asking whether
the church planned to keep
the bowling lanes (maybe
one or two).
But by the time Driscoll
had finished his pitch, alders
were clearly sold, and they
spent most of the next 15
minutes simply explaining
their positions.
One alder who did not
speak was Brad Stiner (D-3),
who told the Press he could
not support the move because
he and the rest of the coun-
cil a decade ago declined to
allow Resurrection Lutheran
Church to move downtown.
Resurrection, which instead
built a $1.6 million building
in the Town of Verona near
Prairie Moraine County Park,
has thrived since then, he
noted.
City chooses new website vendor
The council approved a contract with
Civic Plus to rebuild its website and pro-
vide training, hosting and a year of support
for $25,367.
The city had delayed a decision on its
new website for almost four months after
a local website designer had suggested
the city look more broadly at its options,
including nonproprietary systems. City
administrator Bill Burns spoke with staff at
several communities using open-source
programs, such as Drupal and Wordpress
and reported mixed feedback.
Ultimately, the citys Finance commit-
tee continued to recommend CivicPlus,
which essentially has a monopoly on full-
service government site web hosting, over
open source and its current vendor, Gov-
Office, which has far more limited options.
Finance discussed the options rather than
the Broadband Telecommunications Regu-
latory Board, which controls the funding
(from cable-access fees), because the citys
BTRB hasnt met in several years.
Ald. Luke Diaz (D-3) voted against,
objecting to the lack of an open bidding
process for a project this big.
Other action
The city approved:
A development agreement for the first
two of four phases for Prairie Oaks Second
Addition, which comprises 76 apartments
on the north side.
An agreement for $156,790 in engi-
neering services for designing the Nine
Mound Road/County Hwy. PD intersection
that is expected to be built next year.
Wisconsin Brewing Companys use of
city land bordering the large detention pond
in Verona Technology Park so it can host
outdoor events, as well as a 60-foot flagpole.
A permit for Orange Leaf Yogurt to run a
restaurant with a patio out of a 2,100-square-
foot location on Hometown Circle.
A permi t for Epi cs fi ft h park-
i ng ga r a ge , a not he r 1, 500- s t a l l ,
500,000-square-foot structure that will sit
below the yet-to-be-designed Campus 5.
A zoning change to allow a construc-
tion company to store construction equip-
ment at the fire-damaged former Holm-

10-run win over Big Eight
Conference foe Madison

Seni or r i ght f i el der
Shannon Whitmus high-
lighted the 15-3 win with
a grand slam in the bottom
of the first inning.
Veronas Heather Rud-
nicki, Bea Kealy, Nicole
Neitzel, Kori Keyes and
Ray all collected doubles.
Br ooke Va r i a n a nd
Samant ha Yaeger f i n-
ished 2-for-3 to pace the
Regents.
Fiona Statz took the loss
for West (5-11, 4-9) allow-
ing four earned runs in an
inning and two thirds. The
Regent s saw t hree di f-
ferent pitchers step into
the circle, walking eight,
while allowing nine earned
runs on 13 hits.

Rortvedt hits a 2-run home
run, Pynnonen throws
complete game in 5-1 win
ANTHONY IOZZO
Assistant sports editor
It took nearly five innings before
the Verona Area High School base-
ball team got on the scoreboard Tues-
day, but it did so with a bang in a 5-1
win against Madison La Follette.
Junior shortstop David Rogowski
roped an RBI double to right-center
field, and sophomore catcher Ben
Rortvedt followed up with a 2-run
home run over the right-field fence.
It all came with two outs in the bot-
tom of the fifth at Stampfl Field.
I was looking for a pitch I could
handle and tried to hit the inside of
the ball like I always do, Rortvedt
said. I really just let my hands work.
I knew (Kian OBrien) couldnt beat
me with a fastball, so I was looking
for something to drive.
And that is all senior pitcher Ryan
Pynnonen needed, as he pitched all
seven innings and only allowed a run
on six hits.
Pynnonen also struck out three
while walking none.
It was the first time this year we
had no errors and that really boosted
my confidence ... I just had to keep
throwing strikes and keep the ball
low, Pynnonen said.
Veronas other runs came in the
bottom of the sixth. Junior Brodie
Roehrig scored on a passed ball and
senior Tony Granick added an RBI
single.
La Follettes only run came in
the fourth. After a double by Riley
Anderson, Jordan Carlson hit an RBI
groundout.
OBrien started for La Follette
and picked up the loss. He allowed
five earned runs on six hits in 5 1/3
innings. He walked three and struck
out one.
The Wildcats are now 7-6 in the
Big Eight Conference, tying them for
fourth place with Janesville Craig.
Verona continues the season
at 5 p.m. Thursday at Madison
Memorials Mansfield Stadium.
The Wildcats travel to Bayorgeon
Field at 11 a.m. Saturday to take on
Kaukauna. Verona hosts Middleton at
5 p.m. Tuesday.
Sun Prairie 14, Verona 3
The Wildcats allowed 10 runs in
the final two innings to fall to Sun
Prairie 14-3 last Thursday at Stampfl
Field.
The Cardinals had a 7-0 lead before
the first Verona runs scored in the
bottom of the sixth. Rogowski scored
on an error, while Roehrig hit an RBI
groundout to score Rortvedt in the
sixth.
The Wildcats added a run in the
seventh when senior Blake Laufen-
berg crossed the plate after a few
errors.
Sophomore Keaton Knueppel took
the loss. He went 5 2/3 innings and
allowed 4 earned runs on nine hits.
He struck out six and walked four.
Junior Tekoa Whitehead finished the
game and allowed seven earned runs
on seven hits in 1 1/3 innings.
Mitch Keel picked up the win for
Sun Prairie. He went 5 2/3 innings
and allowed no earned runs on three
hits.
Verona 8, Janesville Craig 6
Verona scored six runs in the top
of the seventh Saturday at Riverside
Park to top Janesville Craig 8-6.
An error brought home Rortvedt to
tie the game at 6, and Pynnonen roped
a two-run double to center field to put
the Wildcats ahead.
Rortvedt had an RBI walk to start
the scoring in the seventh, while
senior John Moynihan had an RBI
from a hit by a pitch. Roehrig added
an RBI fielders choice.
Rortvedt added a sacrifice fly in the
fifth, while Knueppel scored on an
RBI by Pynnonen (2-for-3) the first
run in the second.
Senior Jake Armstrong picked up
the win. He pitched an inning and
allowed two earned runs on one hit.
He walked three. Pynnonen had the
save. He struck out one and allowed a
hit in one inning.
Moynihan started and went five
innings. He allowed no earned runs
on four hits. He struck out seven and
walked four.
Jarod Hoffarth picked up the loss.
Hoffarth allowed no earned runs on
one hit. He struck out three.

The Wildcats finished with

day tournament at Univer-
sity Ridge Golf Course, and
senior Riley Schmitz led the
way with a 10th-place overall
score of 158 (76-82).
Nick Meland was next
with a 166 (82-84), while
senior John Tackett finished
with a 169 (83-86). Junior
Austin Lois finished the scor-
ing with a 178. Freshman
Christian Baltes also shot a
178.
Big Eight rival Middleton
won the tournament with a

place finisher Josh Haunty
with a 145 (75-70) and

Golf Course on Tuesday,
after rain forced the post-

I think we have a lot of
question marks heading into
conference, head coach Jon
Rebholz said. Tackett has
kind of separated himself,
and Riley is pretty consistent.
But after that, there is all sorts
of ups-and-downs from guys.
We have yet to be con-
sistent. We dont really have
enough guys going low on
the same day.

letes combine for three wins
Tuesday as Verona finished
second at the Sun Prairie tri-
angular.
Waschbusch took both
the mile (4:44) and two mile
10:07), while Hartnett reg-
istered a 15.5 to take the 110
hurdles.
The heavy favorite to win
next weeks Big Eight Con-
ference meet, Middleton ran
away with Tuesdays meet.
Middleton is a top five
team in the state, and if they
have a good meet, they could
bring home a trophy this
year, Verona head coach Joff
Pedretti said.
The boys travel to the
Monona Grove Invitational
on Friday before heading to
Madison Memorials Mans-
field Stadium for conference
at 3 p.m. next Tuesday.
Queoff is the defending
conference champion in the
high jump, but he will be chal-
lenged heavily by Middletons
Andy Keeler, who finished
third at state a year ago.
Nameth and Hacker also
expect to once again duke it
out as the states premiere dis-
tance runners.
GIRLS
The Wildcats won three
events and once again rolled
behind their depth to take
Thursdays Hanson Relays at
La Crosse Central.

senior Jenni LaCroix, fresh-
man Kristi Larsen and sopho-
more Kylie Schmaltz capped
the meet by claiming the
4x400 in 4 minutes, 14.51 sec-
onds. LaCroix also added 400
in 1:01.41.
Veronas other victory
came from senior Nicole Zim-
brick, who took the pole vault
(8-6), Junior Hannah Sem-
mann tied for second.
Showcasing the teams
depth, junior Shannon Ker-
rigan, senior Dajah Jones and
sophomores Sieanna Mitch-
ell and Lexy Alt finished run-
ner-up on the 4x100 in 52.08.
Lexy Richardson, Mitchell,
Larsen and Alt took second in
the 4x200 (1:46.99).

er-McGlamery, sophomores

fel and second place in the

Senior Yuki Matsushima

Schmaltz led a 1-2 finish by
the Wildcats in the 100 dash
on Tuesday.
Schmaltz posted a time
of 13 seconds flat to take the
event four tenths of a second
ahead of Kerrigan.
Head coach Mark Happel
said despite facing the Big
Eight Conference frontrunners
in Sun Prairie and Middleton,
the team treated Tuesday just
like it was just another devel-
opmental meet.
Despite finishing second,
Happel pointed to the time of
his 4x400 relay teams (junior
Ogi Ifediora, Miller, LaCroix
and Richardson) runner-up
time of 4:117 as a definite
highlight.
Ifeidiora reached 4-10 and

the triangular, posting 103
points. Sun Prairie scored 43

BOARD BUSINESS
Consider approval of minutes Mo-
tion (Zook) second (Almond) to approve
the minutes from the February 3, 2014
Board Meeting. Motion carried (7-0).
Update on Exploration Academy
Mike Murphy, Chad Welty (EA student
advisor) and students Arteysha Smith
and Morgan Sandler attended to give
the Board an update on Exploration
Academy.
Mike shared a PowerPoint presen-
tation detailing EAs demographics,
what the kids are saying, academic
growth, and an enrollment update col-
lected between September 2013 and
January 2014. Mike reports that 98% of
students report being satisfed with their
school experience at EA and 84% of stu-
dents feel that what they are learning in
EA is relevant to the outside world. EA
students also show academic growth
in reading (EA students had a reading
lexile increase of 59 points), star math
(EA students had a scale score increase
of 14.3) and star math (EA students
had a scale score increase of 8.6). Mike
also shared with the Board an enroll-
ment update. EA expects to increase its
students capacity from 60 to 80 in the
2014-2015 school year; approximately
28 new students (20 new students plus
8 students to replace the graduating
seniors). Applications for Exploration
Academy are due this Friday, February
21st; the vast majority of incoming ap-
plications are from 9th grade students.
Morgan and Arteysha shared with
the Board their student experiences at
EA. Morgan enjoys working with one
teacher and the projects she has been
involved with. She also feels that the
setting in EA will help her in the future
remember what she learned and help
her to better achieve her dream of be-
coming an author. Arteysha feels that
EA has encouraged her to fgure out
what she would like to do when she is
grown up by doing different projects to
fnd out what she is interested in. She
also enjoys the sense of community at
EA and loves that she knows everyone
in her school.
Chad shared with the Board his
staff experience at EA. Just like Artey-
sha, he is most proud of the sense of
community amongst the students and
enjoys the small number of students at
EA. He believes that having 20 students
allows him to build strong relationships
and invest a lot of time getting to know
the students and their families.
Consider action on Sarbacker Pe-
tition (from Belleville to Verona Area)
Dean updated the Board on the details
of the Sarbacker petition to detach from
Belleville School District and attach to
Verona Area School District. The Sar-
backers three children are currently
attending on a tuition waiver this year
but would need to apply for open enroll-
ment next school year, which there are
no open spaces in 1st and 8th grade for
two of the children. The family has been
in our school district for many years and
wishes to remain.
Dean added that the Belleville
School District Board had a frst read-
ing on the petition a week ago and has
it as an action item on their next agenda.
After speaking with the Belleville super-
intendent, Dean would put the Belleville
approval of the petition at less than 50%
with the Board. Additionally, the Board
talked about the possibility of a 66:03 in
lieu of open enrollment, Dean believes
that also has less than a 50% probability
of approval. The issue with the Belleville
School District is more of a fnancial is-
sue. Both school districts have to agree
on the petition, if not the Sarbacker fam-
ily has the option of appealing the de-
cision to DPI. Motion (Behnke) second
(Porter) to approve the Sarbacker Peti-
tion (from Belleville to Verona Area). Mo-
tion carried (7-0).
First reading of Board Policy 533,
Staff Recruitment and Hiring Jason Ol-
son attended to briefy update the Board
on proposed changes to Board Policy
533, Staff Recruitment and Hiring. The
language added to the policy refects
VASDs desire to try and recruit a more
diverse pool of qualifed candidates. The
language added also would give the ad-
ministration authorization to utilize sev-
eral recruitment and retention tools to
create a more diverse staff. Dean added
that in Dane county there is already a lot
of competition to increase diversity and
hire great candidates, added these tools
would help VASD stay competitive. This
was a frst reading of this policy so no
action was taken.
First reading of Board Policy 345.6,
Graduation Requirements Donna Behn
attended to briefy update the Board on a
legislative change that affects the grad-
uation requirements as listed in Board
policy 345.6. Students in the graduating
class of 2017 will now be required to
take 3 credit hours in science and math;
the previous requirement was 2 credit
hours in both. As a result of the increase
in the math and science credit require-
ments, there was also an increase in the
required graduation credits from 22.5
to 23.5. This was a frst reading of this
policy so no action was taken.
Consider approval of job descrip-
tion for Director of Bilingual Programs
and Instructional Equity Dean reviewed
with the Board the job description for
the Director of Bilingual Programs and
Instructional Equity. This position would
be responsible for bilingual education in
the District; part of what John Schmitt
does currently. Additionally, this person
would be charged with oversight of in-
structional equity across the district.
Motion (Behnke) second (Gauthier) to
approve the job description for Director
of Bilingual Programs and Instructional
Equity. Motion carried (7-0).
Discussion of charge School Cal-
endar committee Dean would like to
form a School Calendar Committee to
take a look at the district calendar going
forward. Dean is proposing the charge
of the school calendar committee to
be: review / research and recommend
to the Board a school calendar for the
2015-2016 school year that facilitates
the inclusion of parents / guardians /
advocates in the development of indi-
vidualized learning plans. Dean would
like Board members to think about who
would like to serve on the committee. He
will also put out a call to staff and par-
ents to serve on this committee.
SUPERINTENDENTS REPORT
Update on communication audit
Dean gave an update on the communi-
cation audit. He thanked everyone who
participated in the focus groups that
were held last Tuesday. The next step
in the process is to have David Voss of
Voss and Associates contact the Board
members for a phone interview. Addi-
tionally, on March 13th from 9-11 a.m.
there will be another group meeting
comprised of 3-4 staff members and 2-3
community members who will evaluate
the summary of the frst set of focus
groups and give their input. The fnal re-
port with the fndings and recommenda-
tions will be prepared and brought to the
Board late March, early April.
Update on Future Schools Commit-
tee Dean briefy updated the Board on
the Future Schools Committee. We are
currently in the process of gathering
names of interested individuals. The
information for this committee is posted
on the VASD website.

ING DATES

dates.
COMMITTEE REPORTS
Building, Grounds and Transpor-
tation Amy reported that the commit-
tee met on February 12th at 7 a.m. The
committee discussed the tennis court
renovations, added 2 new courts and
fxing up the other 6 courts. We are look-
ing to get the bids out by March and
aim to have a decision on the contrac-
tor made by the frst week in May. The
boys tennis group would have to make
other arrangements if the project moves
forward. The renovations would be com-
pleted mid-summer before the start of
girls tennis. The renovation may also
see some repairs to the cross-country
track, which would take into consider-
ation the current cross-country path.
The committee also discussed go-
ing forward with the Project Lead the
Way classrooms. Asbestos was found in
the tile work on the foors and whether
or not the project moves forward this
will have to be taken care of. If done
all at once prior to the project, the cost
would not have to be rolled into the proj-
ect and it can all be done at one time.
We are currently getting estimates on
the cost to remove the asbestos. Spring
break would be the ideal time to have
asbestos removed. The committee also
discussed looking for effcient ways to
tie in the HVAC with new air conditioner
because one of the rooms would have
signifcant computers, which will need
to be maintained at a certain tempera-
ture. Dean added that any bid package
will be brought to the Board for approv-
al. The Board can be looking for some-
thing sometime early April.
Amy also reported that the com-
mittee discussed the youth wrestling
coach requested to waive some facility
use fees. It was determined that the fees
were no different than any other fees for
groups in the same category and that
they would remain the same. Denny
discussed the class of 1950. The fun-
draising letters have gone out and the
wording for the Curtis Jones plaque has
been decided.
Amy discussed an email she re-
ceived from a parent of an incoming
Pre-K student regarding pesticide and
chemicals sprayed on the playground.
Ken informed the committee that only
felds treated with chemicals are the
felds behind Badger Ridge and the high
school otherwise the athletic felds and
lawns are typically fertilized once per
year before school starts. The perim-
eters of schools are also sprayed once
a year to keep the pests out. Ken can
provide MSDS sheets if needed.
Finance Committee Renee report-
ed that the Finance Committee met to-
day at 6:30 p.m. with Chris Murphy and
Dean. The committee discussed the re-
organization of John Schmitts position
as well as other non-budgeted positions
to address the needs of Central Offce
moving forward that include a reception-
ist, Data & Assessment Specialist and a
Communications Coordinator. The com-
mittee also discussed the districts Fund
Balance as it relates to the self-funded
dental insurance. Chris suggested add-
ing a bullet to the Boards policy stating
the approximate percentage (approxi-
mately 10%) that the district will keep in
fund balance to use for the self-funded
dental plan. Chris discussed this with
Nancy Dorman (WASB consultant) who
felt it was a good plan and came up with
some examples. This change will come
to the Board soon.
Motion (Zook) second (McCulley)
to approve payment of the bills in the
amount of $3,378,329.15. Motion carried
(7-0).
Personnel Committee Ken report-
ed that the Personnel Committee met
on February 7th at 8 a.m. The commit-
tee discussed the Central Offce staffng
needs that were discussed earlier, the
School Calendar Committee and the re-
visions regarding recruitment and reten-
tion, which was also discussed earlier.
The committee also discussed two
other issues that are still in the works;
health insurance for employees working
less than 30 hours per week (a ramif-
cation of the Affordable Care Act) and
retiree only HRA and employment of
retirees. There was also a closed ses-
sion to discuss the evaluation of the su-
perintendent and the negotiations with
the Verona Area Education Association
(both will also be discussed in closed
session tonight).
ADJOURN to closed session Mo-
tion (Gauthier) second (Zook) to adjourn
at 8:46 p.m. to closed session per WI
Statute 19.85 (1)(c), (e) and (f) for the

tion of the superintendent and (2) nego-
tiations with the Verona Area Education
Association. Roll call to vote: Almond-

discussed with the Board her opposition
to the proposed changes of to the policy

BOARD BUSINESS
Consider approval of minutes Mo-
tion (Zook) second (Almond) to approve
the minutes from the February 17, 2014
Board Meeting. Motion carried (6-0).
Consider action on revisions of
Board Policy 533, Staff Recruitment and
Hiring Jason Olson attended to briefy
update the Board on proposed changes
to Board Policy 533, Staff Recruitment
and Hiring. The language added to the
policy refects VASDs desire to try and
recruit a more diverse pool of qualifed
candidates. The language added also
would give the administration authori-
zation to utilize several recruitment and
retention tools to attract / retain staff
diversity and or attract / retain staff in
hard to fll positions. Jason explained to
the Board that VASD has struggled as an
organization in minority recruitment; ex-
amples of current minority recruitment
practices that included college visits to
UW Whitewater and UW Madison, part-
nering with the Urban League and the
Boys and Girls Club of Dane County.
Dean indicated that in Dane county
there is a lot of competition to increase
diversity / staff hard to fll positions, and
added these tools would help VASD stay
competitive. The proposed changes are
almost exclusive to VAEA positions. Mo-
tion (Behnke) second (Zook) to approve
the revisions of Board Policy 533, Staff
Recruitment and Hiring with a stipula-
tion that there will be an annual update
each June as to the frequency of use of

ments Donna Behn again attended to
briefy update the Board on a legisla-
tive change that affects the graduation
requirements as listed in Board policy
345.6. Students in the graduating class
of 2017 will now be required to take 3
credit hours in science and math; the
previous requirement was 2 credit hours
in both. As a result of the increase in the
math and science credit requirements,
there was also an increase in the re-
quired graduation credits from 22.5 to
23.5. There were no changes from the
frst reading at the last Board meeting.
Motion (Porter) second (Almond) to
approve the revisions of Board Policy

SUPERINTENDENTS REPORT
Information on scheduled active
school training Todd Endl and Jason
Olson attended to provide information
to the Board on the scheduled active
shooting training.
The active shooter training will take
place on August 19th at Savanna Oaks
Middle School. It will be a full functional
scale exercise to include essential emer-
gency and medical personnel from Vero-
na and Fitchburg. Todd is encouraging
staff to participate in a variety of roles
and also encourages the Board to come
and observe. The active shooter training
has been a work in progress for over
a year now. The district applied for a
grant to help fund it and received half of
the grant. The plan is to do the training
every year and alternate between Fitch-
burg and Verona campuses. Currently,
we are working on the communication
lines between Fitchburg and Verona to
improve communication in the event of
an emergency.
In addition to the active school
training, there are several security mea-
sures within the district that are being
addressed. This includes conducting a
key analysis, changing interior keyed
doors, providing a battery pack for the
repeater system, looking in to door
strike covers for classrooms to make it
easier to lock doors in an emergency sit-
uation, looking in to additional cameras
for each site and purchasing additional
radios for the Building Emergency Re-
sponse Team (BERT). Todd also shared
with the Board the new levels of lock-
down that the district has implemented.
Todd and Jason are also working
with the subs to keep them informed
of the security changes. The new sub
handbooks include the new lock down
levels and they are working on making
sure that veteran subs of the district
also have the information. Todd ac-
knowledges that there is a lot more to
do but he wanted the Board to know that
we are working diligently to ensure the
safety of students and staff.
Update on Badger Ridge Middle
School Principal selection Dean gave a
brief update on the Badger Ridge Middle
School Principal selection. There were
108 applicants, although not all were
qualifed. The candidate pool has been
narrowed to 18 applicants; screener
interviews will be tomorrow March 4th.
The interview committee has been se-
lected and are looking to narrow it down
to 6-8 candidates to begin interviewing
next week.
Update on Future Schools Commit-
tee Dean briefy updated the Board on
the Future Schools Committee. To date
there have been 58 interested candi-
dates who completed the online survey.
We are looking at gathering a diverse
group of candidates to take back to the
BG & T Committee for selection. Dean
thanked the community for their willing-
ness to participate.
Update on School Calendar Com-
mittee Dean provided the Board with
a brief update in the School Calendar
Committee. A similar survey to that
of the Future Schools Committee was
placed on the website today and a
School Reach message inviting par-
ticipants will go out tomorrow morning.
Dean would like to have at least two
Board members on each of the commit-
tees; Joanne has already volunteered to

Amy is also interested in serving on
the School Calendar Committee. John
expressed interest in serving on either
committee.

Presentation of WEA Insurance
Trust Grant award Kurt Pop and Mela-

to present Kyle Walsh, 1st Grade teacher
at Sugar Creek Elementary with a $2500
Forward Together grant awarded by
WEA Trust. Kyle was one of three se-

sion received. Kyle plans to host If You
Want to Be a Reader Day on Friday, April

necting our schools to the commu-
nity and the community to our schools
through literacy, which is where he came
up with his grant idea. Kyle is working
on creating several little free libraries

is to have little libraries constructed and
set up in several locations where people
can donate, receive and exchange books
for free. Kyle expects to have this up and
running by the end of May; he is hoping
to host another event similar to the If
You Want to Be a Reader day to collect
donations for the free libraries.

attended to congratulate Kyle on his
achievement adding that Kyle has been
a great hire for Sugar Creek.

COMMITTEE REPORTS
Building, Grounds and Transporta-
tion Jeannie reported that the com-
mittee met on March 7th at 7 a.m. The
primary discussion of the meeting was
on selecting members for the Future

great applications and the committee is
trying to decide on a committee that is
diverse. The committee will be made up
of 15-17 members. The Future Schools
Committee will also have at least 2 Board

ovations. Tennis courts bids are due this
Thursday, March 27th; after the contracts
are received a decision will be made rath-
er or not to proceed with the project. Amy
also discussed the Project Lead the Way
Classrooms. The asbestos that was in
the basement section of the high school
was abated over Spring Break. Most of
the asbestos was found in the tile foor
so it was all removed and the foor will
be replaced in the future. There was also
some water damage

exceeding the revenue cap. We are wait-
ing on a response from DPI to clarify if
