The Verona Area School District strives to provide a safe, secure and respectful learning
environment for all students in school buildings, on school grounds, in school buses and at
school-sponsored activities.
Bullying has a harmful social, physical, psychological and academic impact on bullies, victims and bystanders. The District shall consistently and vigorously address bullying so that
there is no disruption to the learning environment and learning process.
Bullying behavior is prohibited in all schools, buildings, property and educational environments, including any property or vehicle owned, leased or used by the District. This includes
public transportation regularly used by students to go to and from school. Educational environments include, but are not limited to, every activity under school supervision.
Bullying is defined as deliberate or intentional behavior using words or actions, intended to
cause fear, intimidation or harm. Bullying may be repeated behavior and involves an imbalance
of power. The behavior may be motivated by an actual or perceived distinguishing characteristic,
such as, but not limited to: age; national origin; race; ethnicity; religion; gender; gender identity; sexual orientation; physical attributes; physical or mental ability or disability; and social,
economic or family status.
All school staff members and school officials who observe or become aware of acts of bullying are required to report these acts to the building principal or designee in accordance with
established procedures. Reports of bullying may be made verbally or in writing and may be
made confidentially. All such reports, whether verbal or in writing, will be taken seriously and
a clear account of the incident is to be documented. A written record of the report, including all
pertinent details, will be made by the principal or design of the report.
After receiving the report, the building principal or designee will immediately undertake an
investigation of the report. The investigation shall include interviewing the individual(s) who
are victim(s) of the bullying and collecting whatever other information is necessary to determine
the facts and seriousness of the report. Parent/and or guardians of each student involved in the
bullying will be notified prior to the conclusion of the investigation. The District will maintain
the confidentiality of the report and any related student records to the extent required by law.

VASD Back To School


Superintendents Greeting

Dear students and parents,


Welcome to the 20152016 school year! The
entire staff of the Verona
Area School District
(VASD) from teachers to
support staff, food service, custodians, and our
administrators and Board
of Education is completely committed to making
this the best educational
experience in the state of
Wisconsin for all of our
nearly 5400 students.
As a community, we
have so much to be proud
of regarding our schools
and our students. As
the chief cheerleader for
the district, it is always Dean Gorrell, Superintendent
my honor and privilege
to point out some of our
accomplishments. Consider a few of the following facts about
our district:
In April of 2015, a referendum to purchase land for future
school sites passed with a 65% yes vote.
In the 2014-2015 school year, we nearly tripled the number
of under represented students enrolled in Advanced Placement
courses at our high school compared to the previous year. The
total percentage of students taking AP courses has significantly
increased as we have focused our efforts on increasing the rigor
for all students.
Our students scores on the Measures of Academic Progress
(MAP) exam meet, or in most cases, exceed the national norms
at every grade level the test is administered.
Nearly 60% of the graduating class of 2015 reported plans
to attend a four-year college or university and 30% plan to attend
a technical/two-year college.
We offer a Pre Kindergarten program utilizing our local
high quality preschool providers.
We have an excellent financial position with an Aa2 with a
positive outlook Moodys rating.
We have four charter schools in the district, which afford
families choices in learning style and curriculum options for
their children.

Despite our history and record of excellence, there are certainly areas where we are challenged and struggle. Some of the
most daunting challenges we face include:
The achievement and opportunity gap: Not all our
children are achieving at high levels. The achievement gap,
which plagues nearly the entire country, is certainly present in
our district as well. Many of our English Language Learners,
students with disabilities, students of color and low-income
students do not achieve at the same level on standardized
measures as do our white students who are not in the free/
reduced lunch program. Furthermore, those same children are
not equally represented in extracurricular activities, awards or
scholarships.
Concerns about student behavior/discipline: In the
spring of 2015, parents, community members and staff attended
Board meetings to express their concerns over behavioral/discipline matters at some of our schools. Concerns voiced included
lack of appropriate consequences, student and staff safety, lack
of consistency between and within sites, disrespect toward staff
and other students and behavioral expectations. The Board
and administration take these concerns very seriously and will
be forming a task force to address these concerns. The Board
understands that student and staff safety is the most basic need
that must be met if we are going to realize our best teaching and
learning.
Concerns about personalized learning: In addition to
parents, community members and staff voicing concerns about
behavior and discipline, concerns were raised about personalized
learning in the district. Some history about personalized learning in our district includes:

The Board of Education, in April of 2013, formally
endorsed an ambitious endeavor to provide a personalized
learning plan for every student, K -12. This plan includes
the following outcomes:

Every student in VASD has a personalized learning
plan that provides a path to discovery and achievement and that plan is reviewed and changed at least
annually based on the students needs.

Every students parent, guardian or advocate participates directly in the design, implementation, and
outcomes of that students personalized learning
plans.

Every student meets or exceeds the goals of his or her
personalized learning plan every school year.

Every VAHS student graduates.

E
 very VAHS graduate achieves their choice of college
and career path, as detailed in their personalized
learning plan.

Concerns about personalized learning included implementation, communication, scheduling, grading, and time
spent with direct instruction from teachers. Given these
concerns, the Board has recently voted to extend the time
line for full implementation to the 2018-2019 school year
and is considering other modifications.
I want to acknowledge these concerns exist and I am personally committed to addressing them.
I know that the Board of Education, the administration and
staff are all deeply committed to addressing any and all concerns
raised about our school district.
In Verona, we believe that educating all children, means
educating ALL children. We will work tirelessly to provide each
child with a rigorous and relevant curriculum. Further, all our
staff from teachers to support staff and administration are committed to developing meaningful relationships with the children
in our schools. We believe relationships and relevance make
rigor possible.
We invite you to check us out online at www.verona.12.wi.us
for information about our schools. We invite you to look at the
district achievement data, which youll find on our home page.
Once the most recent performance data is released to the public (we anticipate this will be in the month of September), we
encourage you to check out the site annual reports for specific
information about each of our school sites. Lastly, know that
there is a standing invitation to all members of our school district
to call or email me or any district staff with questions you may
have regarding your child or about any school district operation.
My contact information can be found below.
The Verona Area School District is an outstanding school district because of the commitment, hard work and sacrifice of the
entire staff and community. We are absolutely committed to give
each and every child that passes through our schoolhouse doors
our best. Working together with families and the community, we
can make this the best school district in Wisconsin. We need each
of you to contribute to that success. Please join us in this work.
Best wishes for an exciting and rewarding school year. Thank
you continuing to make learning the most important endeavor in
your childs life.
Kindest regards,
Dean Gorrell, Superintendent

issues. Additional information is located on the school website at www.verona.k12.wi.us.

Children will participate in play activities that provide rich learning experiences. A focus on
learning through play allows children to gain skills in all areas including: social-emotional, cognitive, creative expression, early literacy and self-help. Teachers will use materials and curriculum
that enhance those experiences through a hands-on approach.
If you would like more information or would like to register your child, please call Jennifer
Skibba, Early Learning Coordinator, at 608-712-9697.

Best Wishes to Verona


Area Staff & Students
for a Great Upcoming
School Year!

VASD Back To School

Sugar Creek Welcomes Students!


Sugar Creek Elementary School will
welcome approximately 500 students
back to school on Tuesday, September
1st.

Home-School
Communications

Todd Brunner,
Principal

Our website is an excellent source


for information about Sugar Creek. Go
to www.verona.k12.wi.us and click on
Sugar Creek in the Our Schools drop
down menu to learn more about our
excellent school!

Kindergarten Information

Kindergarten families will have a pre-scheduled hour block


of time on Tuesday, September 1st, 2015, to meet the teachers,
have questions answered, and drop off supplies. The first full
day of school for Kindergarten students will be on Wednesday,
September 2nd.

First Day of School

All elementary children should report directly to the classroom to which they have been assigned. Students may enter the
building after the first bell at 7:35 a.m. Classes begin at 7:45 a.m.
and end at 2:35 p.m.

Student Absences

Attendance and tardies for Sugar Creek students are closely


monitored. Attendance is taken at 7:45 each morning. We ask
that parents call 845-4700 before the start of school to inform
Sugar Creek if your child will be absent or tardy.

Behavioral Management

Sugar Creek has been recognized by the State of Wisconsin as


a Positive Behavior Intervention Systems (PBIS) School of Merit.
PBIS is a process of teaching and supporting students and
staff to follow four basic school-wide expectations:
1. Be Kind and Respectful
2. Be a Responsible
3. Be a Problem Solver
4. Be Safe

Families can play a large role in advancing positive behaviors


of our students by reinforcing the same school-wide expectations
at home reinforcing appropriate behaviors. Bedtime, meals, play
time, or trips to the store are all great opportunities to apply
the same concepts. Engaging children in conversations about
what is going well at school, talking about how celebrations are
being enjoyed, or talking about what strategies your learner
used to solve a problem are all great ways to make the homeschool connection around positive behavior. We will continue to
keep parents informed and partner with parents on behavioral
management so all students are safe and achieving high levels
of academic success.

Changes to the Wisconsin


Student Assessment System
for 2015-16
Over the course of the 2015-16 school year, there will
be some significant changes to the Wisconsin Student
Assessment System:
State Assessments for Students in grades 3-8
The Wisconsin Knowledge and Concepts Exam (WKCE)
will no longer be given.
The Badger Exam will no longer be given.
The Department of Public Instruction is in the process of

All students may report to the
classroom they were assigned at

Kindergarten Information

A first day introduction for Stoner Prairie kindergarten


students will take place on Tuesday, September 1st. The kindergarten students and their parents/guardians will be able to
meet the kindergarten teachers and bring in their supplies. The
first day of regular classes for kindergarten students will be
Wednesday, September 2nd. A letter detailing the introduction
time for September 1 was mailed at the beginning of August to
all families whose child has been registered for kindergarten.
Families are invited to call the Stoner Prairie office at 845-4205
or 845-4206 with questions or to register if still necessary.

Student Absence

Attendance for students at the elementary schools is carefully


monitored. Roll call is taken immediately each morning. Parents
are required to call before 8:00 a.m. to inform the school if their
child is going to be absent or tardy. Messages about absences
may be left at any time at 845-4203. This call provides assurance that all children are safe either at home or at school. If we
do not receive a call reporting an absence, the school secretary
will attempt to call the parent or guardian to confirm the childs
whereabouts. If no contact is made with parents, the absence will
be recorded as unexcused.

Federal Laws Regarding Military Recruitment of High School Students


Q. What does the law say about military recruitment of high
school students?
A. Congress has passed two major pieces of legislation that
generally require school districts receiving assistance under the
Elementary and Secondary Education Act of 1965 (ESEA) to give
military recruiters the same access to secondary school students
as they provide to postsecondary institutions or to prospective
employers. School districts are also generally required to provide
students names, addresses, and telephone listings to military
recruiters, when requested.
Q. Where are these statutory requirements found?
A. These requirements are contained in 9528 of the ESEA
(20 U.S.C. 7908), as amended by the No Child Left Behind Act
of 2001 (P.L. no. 107-110), the education bill Congress recently
passed.
Q. What are the requirements of 9528 of the ESEA?
A. Each school district that receives funds under the ESEA
must comply with a request by a military recruiter or an institution of higher education for secondary students names, addresses, and telephone numbers, unless a parent has opted out of providing such information. (See below for additional information.)
Section 9528 also requires school districts that receive funds
under the ESEA to provide military recruiters the same access
to secondary school students as they generally provide to postsecondary institutions or prospective employers. For example,
if the school has a policy of allowing postsecondary institutions
or prospective employers to come on school property to provide
information to students about educational or professional opportunities, it must afford the same access to military recruiters.
Q. Under 9528 of the ESEA, what notification must school
districts provide to parents before disclosing names, addresses,
and telephone numbers of secondary students to military recruiters and officials of institutions of higher education?
A. Under FERPA, a school district must provide notice to
parents of the types of student information that it releases
publicly. This type of student information, commonly referred
to as directory information, includes such items as names,
addresses, and telephone numbers and is information generally
not considered harmful or an invasion of privacy if disclosed.
The notice must include an explanation of a parents right to
request that the information not be disclosed without prior written consent. Additionally, 9528 requires that parents be notified that the school routinely discloses names, addresses, and
telephone numbers to military recruiters upon request, subject
to a parents request not to disclose such information without
written consent. A single notice provided through a mailing, a
student handbook, or other method that is reasonably calculated
to inform parents of the above information is sufficient to satisfy
the parental notification requirements of both FERPA and
9528. The notification must advise the parent of how to opt out
of the public, nonconsensual disclosure of directory information
and the method and timeline within which to do so.
Q. If a school district has not provided notice relating to directory information, may it release a students name, address, and
telephone number when requested by a military recruiter?
A. As noted above, a school district may provide a single
notice regarding both directory information and information

disclosed to military recruiters. If a school district does not disclose directory information under FERPA, then it must still
provide military recruiters access to secondary students names,
addresses and telephone listings. In addition, the school district
must notify parents that they may opt out of this disclosure. In
other words, a school district that does not disclose directory
information must nonetheless provide a notice that it discloses
information to military recruiters. The notice must be reasonably
calculated to inform parents.
Q. If a parent opts out of the public, nonconsensual disclosure
of directory information (or any subset of such information),
must the three data elements be released to military recruiters
upon their request?
A. If a parent opts out of providing director information to
third parties, the opt-out relating to name, address, or telephone
number applies to requests from military recruiters as well. For
example, if the opt-out states that telephone numbers will not be
disclosed to the public, school may not disclose telephone numbers to military recruiters.
Q. If the school does not list one or more of the three data elements (e.g., telephone number) among its directory information,
may it release that information to military recruiters?
A. If a school does not designate one or ore of the three items
as directory information under FERPA, it still must provide
all three items to military recruiters upon request. Also, in that
case, the school would have to send a separate notice to parents
about the missing directory information item(s), noting an
opportunity to opt out of disclosure of the information to military
recruiters. An easier method, of course, would be for the school
to designate all three items name, address, and telephone listing as directory information.
Q. How are the requirements under 9528 of the ESEA
enforced?
A. Schools that do not comply with 9528 of the ESEA could
jeopardize their receipt of ESEA funds.
Q. How does 544 of the National Defense Authorization Act
for Fiscal Year 2002 amend the former requirements under 10
U.S.C. 503?
A. Section 544 of the National Defense Authorization Act
for Fiscal Year 2002 revises Title 10, Section 503 in several
important ways. First, the recruiting provisions now apply only
to school districts (including private secondary schools) that
receive funds under the ESEA. Second, these provisions now
require access by military recruiters to students, under certain
conditions, and to secondary school students names, addresses,
and telephone listings. Third, as discussed earlier, they require
school districts to notify parents of their right to opt out of the
disclosure of their childrens names, addresses, and telephone
numbers and to comply with any such requests from the parents
or the students.
Q. How are these requirements under 10 U.S.C. 503
enforced?
A. In addition to the potential
for loss of funds under ESEA
noted above for failure to comply
with 9528 of the ESEA, a school

Parental Rights to Seek Information


Regarding Staff Qualifications

district that denies a military recruiter access to the requested


information on students after July 1, 2002, will be subject to
specific interventions under 10 U.S.C. 503. In this regard, the
law requires that a senior military officer (e.g., Colonel or Navy
Captain) visit the school district within 120 days. If the access
problem is not resolved with the school district, the Department
of Defense must notify the Sate Governor within 60 days.
Problems still unresolved after one year are reported to Congress
if the Secretary of Defense determines that the school district
denies recruiting access to at least two of the armed forces (Army,
Navy, Marine Corps, etc.). The expectation is that public officials
will work with the school district to resolve the problem.
Additionally, the Department of Defense has developed a
national high school data base to document recruiter access.
Presently, 95 percent of the nations 22,000 secondary schools
provide a degree of access to military recruiters that is consistent
with current law.
Q. Are private schools subject to the military recruiter
requirements?
A. Private secondary schools that receive funds under the
ESEA are subject to 10 U.S.C. 503. However, private schools
that maintain a religious objection to service in the Armed
Forces that is verifiable through the corporate or other organizational documents or materials of that school are not required to
comply with this law.
Q. Where can I get more information on the requirements of
10 U.S.C. 503?
A. The Office of the Secretary of Defense may be contacted for
copies of the statute, or questions relating to it. Please contact
the Accession Policy Directorate as follows:
Director, Accession Policy
400 Defense Pentagon
Washington, DC 20301-4000
Telephone: (703) 695-5529
Q. Where can I get more information on the requirements of
9528 of the ESEA?
A. The Family Policy Compliance Office (FPCO) in the
Department of Education administers FERPA as well as 9528
of the ESEA, as amended by the No Child Left Behind Act of
2001. School officials with questions on this guidance, or FERPA,
may contact the FPCO at FERPA@ED.Gov or write to the FPCO

Federal law requires schools to share information with parents regarding the qualifications
of teachers employed by the school district. Among the questions that parents may ask are:
Is my childs teacher licensed to teach the grades or subjects assigned?
Has the state waived any requirements for my childs teacher?
What was the college major of my childs teacher?
What degrees does my childs teacher hold?
Are there instructional aides working with my child? If so, what are their qualifications?
All teachers employed by the Verona Area School District (VASD) have at least a bachelors
degree, and approximately 75 percent have a Masters degree or equivalent. In addition, all of
the teachers are DPI licensed for their assignment. Finally, all instructional aides are employed
by VASD and considered qualified for their work assignments.
If parents or others want to review the state qualification for a teacher, such information
can found on the DPI website at www.dpi.state.wi.us/dpi/dlsis/tel/lisearch.html. Please direct
any other questions regarding qualifications of schools staff to Jason Olson, Director of Human
Resources, at 845-4335 or at olsonj@verona.k12.wi.us.

The Country View staff is eager to welcome our learners and


families for the 2015-16 school year! We anticipate an enrollment
of approximately 470 students.
Our purpose is to help your child become a lifelong learner
through addressing their unique social, emotional and academic needs within a diverse community of learners. We will
build on your childs interests and strengths while at the same
time ensuring your child has the fundamental skills to achieve
academically. We believe our children need basic, foundational
academic skills as well as a deep understanding of themselves as
learners in order to be successful.
Along with academic skills, we want our children to develop a
mindset for success. We believe every child has positive attributes
and vast potential. We refer to this as recognizing greatness,
and we focus on building our greatness in the areas of persistence,
cooperation, respect, reflection, generosity, self-control, creativity,
and courage. These greatness attributes or habits of mind will
help our children be successful in our ever-changing world.
At Country View we say, Every day you are building a masterpiece and that masterpiece is YOU!

This policy also prohibits discrimination as defined by Title IX of the Educational Amendments
of 1972 (sex), Title VI of Civil Rights Act of 1964 (race, color, and national origin), Section 504 of the
Rehabilitation Act of 1973 (disability), McKinney-Vento Homeless Assistance Act (homelessness).
All vocational education programs follow the districts policies of nondiscrimination. In addition,
arrangements can be made to ensure that the lack of English language skills is not a barrier to

Moving To The Middle School Is A Giant Step For Some Children


For most 11 to 12-year-olds, the first days at middle school are every bit as memorable (and
scary) as those days half a lifetime ago when they walked into kindergarten.
Acknowledging the confusion adolescence brings to youngsters and parents, we offer the following advice for parents to help children maneuver that giant step away from the security of the
elementary into the uncertainty of middle school.
Get to know the school. Visit the school within the first few weeks. Meet the principal and
teachers. Learn school policies. Then, if your child comes home with a problem, youll know the
rules and the person to call.
Be ready to adjust to dramatic changes in your child. Adolescent children seek independence, which often means challenging parental and school authority. Being acquainted with the
school staff may help parents weather some future storms.
Be prepared for a lot less information. That elementary school child who told you all about
school is almost gone. Along with a childs move toward independence is a natural inclination not
to share information about school good or bad.

Keep monitoring schoolwork and grades. Be subtle, not too inquisitive. Keep an eye out
for stumbling blocks, particularly in subjects new to your child like technology, algebra, foreign
language, and vocational education.
Watch for extreme swings in grades up and down. If a childs grade record remains similar to that of elementary school, okay. But if grades are abnormally low or high, its time to check
with the teacher. Unusually high grades may indicate incorrect placement. Give children about six
weeks to adjust, though, before becoming too concerned.
Encourage extracurricular activities, but watch for overload. Participating in sports
and clubs is almost indispensable to the adolescents self-esteem, but academic performance must
dictate the number of activities a child can handle.
Please take time to review the Schools Code of Conduct, Discipline and Student
Dress code as well as. Policies found in your students handbook/planner that they will receive
on their first day of school.
Meet your childs new friends and their parents. Welcome your childs widening circle of
friends personally no matter how difficult. Before a youngster visits a new friend, call, introduce
yourself to the family and confirm the plans. Prying? Maybe, but research shows that children
actually do appreciate parents interest they just dont say so. In fact, their objections tend to be
quite dramatic. Hold your ground.
Attend school functions and sporting events. Keep up with all of your childs activities, teammates, teachers, and principals. Dont assume your relationship with school ends after
elementary school.

Mike Murphy, Principal &

First Day of School

The first day of school for sixth graders is Tuesday, September


1. Seventh and eighth graders will begin on Wednesday,
September 2.
On September 1, sixth graders will have the opportunity to
participate in various activities that will help them adjust to the
BRMS program. School will begin at the regular time of 8:30 a.m.
We will follow a Late Start Monday schedule. Students should
report to their access period class at 8:30 a.m. Classes will finish
at the regular ending time of 3:33 p.m.

Back-to-School-Night

Parents and students are invited to attend Back to School


Night on Thursday, August 27th, from 4:00 p.m. to 8:00 p.m.
The program will allow parents to choose from a variety of
experiences to fill a timeframe that meets their family time and
informational needs. Detailed information will be mailed home.

School Pictures

All students and staff will have their pictures taken during
Back to School Night on Thursday, August 27. Families that
would like picture packets will receive the information and
appropriate forms. If you are unable to attend Back to School
Night, make-up photos will be taken once the school year begins.
All students and staff will be issued a school identification card
with their picture on it.

1:1 I-pads

All BRMS students will be issued personal I-pads for the


2015-16 school year to engage in academic work. All parents will
need to attend an informational session prior to your student
being issued their I-pad. I-pad sessions will be offered during
Back to School Night.

Student Absence

If your child will be absent from school, we ask parents to


call the school office (845-4103) by 9:00 a.m. and leave a message regarding the absence. Parents will be called if your child is
absent and we have not received a message from you.

Incoming sixth graders and new BRMS/CKMS students will


be issued locks from the school on Back to School Night. The
cost of the lock is $5.00 and will be used all three years at the
middle school. Seventh and eighth grade students may purchase
replacement locks the first day of school for $5.00. The school
building will be open daily in late August for students to set
up their lockers. Students may also set up their lockers during
Back-to-School Night on August 27.

Extracurricular Activities

We encourage students to participate in the extracurricular activities that we offer at the middle school. The Student
Handbook and our website lists all of the opportunities that are
available. Students will also receive information about these
activities through our daily announcements.
We look forward to beginning the school year and providing
a positive and rewarding experience for the students who attend
BRMS. Our staff members are:

VASD Back To School

Two Largest Goals of the District Bring Exciting Changes


These are exciting times for our school district and we are
extremely enthusiastic to take on two major goals for our nearly
800 staff members and 5,400 students. First, we are entering
year three of our Personalized Learning initiative, a move that
will truly change the way students and teachers engage in the
teaching and learning process. We are working hard to better
communicate out the dynamics of this initiative, not only to our
staff, but also to families. The Board has extended the timeline
of implementing personalized learning to the 2018-2019 school
year, allowing the district to focus on professional development
as we unveil this district-wide.
Secondly, a district-wide task force will be created to
address behavioral expectations and philosophy. The Board,
Administration, our staff and the public all have a shared interest in ensuring our schools are safe and offer a positive academic
atmosphere regarding behavior and discipline.

Personalized Learning: Moving


Verona to a New Level District-Wide
The Verona Area School District is excited to begin year three
of the Personalized Learning Plan implementation. Verona has
become one of the leaders across the state as more and more districts begin to discover the benefits of Personalized Learning for

all students. Personalized Learning is designed to provide educational programs,learning experiences, instructional approaches,
andacademic support strategiesto address the distinct learning
needs of every student.Personalized learning is generally seen
as an alternative to one-size-fits-all approaches with the goal
to make individual learning needs the primary consideration in
educational and instructional decisions.
The board has extended the implementation timeline to
the2018-19 school year, allowing the district to focus heavily on
a strategic blueprint as we unveil this district-wide. Key components include:
Ensuring all staff have the necessary professional development to implement personalized learning effectively.
Communicating with our staff, families, and community
about what personalized learning is and how it benefits all students.
Creating an evaluation plan to ensure the goal of every
student having a personalized learning plan by 2018-19 is met,
as well as an ongoing evaluation of the impact of personalized
learning on student achievement.
Reviewing board and district policies and procedures to
ensure they support the effective implementation of personalized learning.

For more information on VASDs move to Personalized


Learning, contact Ann Franke, Director of Curriculum and
Instruction, at 608-845-4311 or frankea@verona.k12.wi.us or
Betty Wottreng, Director of Educational Technology Services,
845-4322 or wottrenb@verona.k12.wi.us.

Behavioral Response Initiatives


to be Addressed District-Wide
Over the past year, concerns surrounding behavior and
discipline emerged. In response, the Board of Education is forming a Discipline Task Force to address issues around policies
and procedures. Additionally, the District Behavior Emotional
Support Team (BEST) has conducted district-wide training
in multiple approaches to address those behavior concerns.
These approaches include: Positive Behavioral Intervention
and Supports (PBIS), Nurtured Heart Approach, Restorative
Practices, and Non-violent Crisis Intervention. Each of these
approaches will be integrated into the behavioral response plan
for each school. We have engaged many staff in these trainings
and have trainers in each area established in each school. Look
for parent opportunities to learn about each of these approaches
and additional information on the status of the districts work in
this area across the coming year.

Verona Area School District Notice of Child Find


The school district must locate, identify, and evaluate all resident children with
disabilities, including children with disabilities attending private schools that are
located in the District boundaries, regardless of the severity of their disabilities.
The school district has a special education screening program to locate and screen all children
with suspected disabilities who are residents of the district and who have not graduated from
high school. Upon request the school district will screen any resident child who has not graduated high school to determine whether a special education referral is appropriate. A request
may be made by contacting Erin Schettler, Director of Student Services, Verona Area School
District, at (608)845-4314, email to Erin.Schettler @verona.k12.wi.us or by writing her at 700
N. Main Street, Verona WI 53593.
Annually, the Verona Area School District distributes and collects census information including whether or not a family has concerns about their child/children.
These concerns are then followed-up through a District screening conducted by
staff knowledgeable of disability areas. There are also several development screening
days scheduled throughout the school year. These will be posted throughout the school district and at other settings as appropriate.
A physician, nurse, psychologist, social worker or administrator of a social
agency who reasonably believes a child brought to him or her for services is a child
with a disability has a legal duty to report the child to the school district in which
the child resides. Before referring the child, the person making the referral must inform
the childs parent that the referral will be made. The referral must be in writing and include
the reason why the person believes the child is a child with a disability. Others who reasonably believe a child is a child with a disability may also refer the child to the school district in
which the child resides. A referral of a child residing in the Verona Area School District may
be sent to Erin Schettler at the school district address above.
The school district maintains pupil records, including information from screening and special education referral according to state and federal requirements. All
records directly related to a student and maintained by the school district are pupil records.
They include records maintained in any way including, but not limited to, computer storage
media, video and audiotape, film, microfilm, and microfiche. Records maintained for personal
use by a teacher and not available to others and records available only to persons involved in
the psychological treatment of a child are not pupil records.
The school district maintains several classes of pupil records.
Progress records include grades, courses the child has taken, the childs attendance
record, immunization records, required lead screening records, and records of school
extra-curricular activities. Progress records must be maintained for at least five years
after the child ceases to be enrolled.
Behavioral records include such records as psychological tests, personality evaluations,
records of conversations, written statements relating specifically to the pupils behavior,
tests relating specifically to achievement or measurement of ability, physical health
records other than immunization and lead screening records, law enforcement officers
records, and other pupil records that are not progress records. Law enforcement officers records are maintained separately from other pupil records. Behavioral records
may be maintained for no longer than one year after the child graduates or otherwise
ceases to be enrolled, unless the parent specifies in writing that the records may be
maintained for a longer period of time. The school district informs parents when pupil
records are no longer needed to provide special education. At the request of the childs
parents, the school district destroys the information that is no longer needed.

the parents of those children have the right to inspect and review only the information
about their child or to be informed of that specific information. Upon request, the school
district will give a parent or eligible student a copy of the progress records and a copy of
the behavioral records. Upon request, the school district will give the parent or eligible
student a list of the types and locations of education records collected, maintained, or
used by the district for special education. The school district will respond to reasonable
requests for explanations and interpretations of the records. A representative of the parent may inspect and review the records.
T
 he right to request the amendment of the students education records that
the parent or eligible student believes is inaccurate or misleading. Parents or
eligible students may ask the Verona Area School District to amend a record that they
believe is inaccurate or misleading. They should write the school principal, clearly identify the part of the record they want changed, and specify why it is inaccurate or misleading. If the district decides not to amend the record, the district will notify the parent
or eligible student of the decision and the right to a hearing regarding the request for
amendment. Additional information regarding the hearing procedures will be provided
to the parent or eligible student when notified of the right to a hearing.
The right to consent to disclosures of personally identifiable information in
the students education records, except to the extent that federal and state
law authorizes disclosure without consent. The exceptions are stated in 34 CFR
99.31, Family Educational Rights and Privacy Act regulations; Sec. 9528, PL107-110, No
Child Left Behind Act of 2001; and section 118.125(2)(a) to (m) and sub. (2m), Wisconsin
Statutes. One exception that permits disclosure without consent is disclosures to school
officials with legitimate educational interests. A school official is a person employed by
the district as an administrator, supervisor, instructor, or support staff member (including health or medical staff and law enforcement unit personnel); a person serving on the
school board; a person or company with whom the district has contracted to perform a
special task (such as an attorney, auditor, medical consultant, or therapist); or a parent
or student serving on an official committee, such as a disciplinary or grievance committee, or assisting another school official in performing his or her tasks. A school official
has a legitimate educational interest if the official needs to review an education record
in order to fulfill his or her professional responsibility. Upon request, the district discloses education records without consent to officials of another school district in which
a student seeks or intends to enroll. Also the district discloses directory data without
consent, unless the parent notifies the district that it may not be released without prior
parental consent.
T

That First Day Of School Is An Important Event


The first day of school is a milestone in your childs life. Your understanding at this turning
point is important to the childs future attitude toward school and to his or her healthy growth
and development.
Experts in child mental health and development emphasize that you, the parent, can play an
important role in starting your child off with the self-confidence needed throughout life. This selfconfidence is built upon good feelings about parents, about authority figures at school, about other
children, and about himself or herself as a worthwhile human being.

Here are some things for you to keep in mind:


Recognize that the day your child first goes off to
school is an important event. Realizing this can help
you to make it a positive experience. It is the first major
separation from the secure and familiar world of home
and family, and it marks entrance into a new universe of
friendships, learning and adventure a world that parents
can never again entirely share. Your greatest gift to your
child at this time is your loving support and understanding.
Prepare your child for the new school experience
by explaining what to expect and answering all
questions honestly. Children need to know the number
of days and length of time they will be in school as well
as how to get there and back. A child may be anxious,
and needs to know details in order to handle the stress
involved. Working mothers and fathers should make certain that the child knows the arrangements for before and
after school care.
Convey a positive attitude about school. If the parents show enthusiasm for what the school experience can
mean, the child is more likely to look forward to it.
Make transportation plans clear to the child. If
he or she is to walk to school, walk the route together a
few times before and after school starts. If there are other
children from your neighborhood who are of the same age,
see if they can walk together. If a child goes to school by
bus, help the child identify the vehicle. Encourage older children to watch over younger ones. Once
the bus arrives, be direct: say goodbye and allow the child to board alone. If the child cries, try not
to overreact. In most cases the tears will soon disappear.
Create a normal routine atmosphere at home the first few days of school. Do not deny
or avoid the uniqueness of the situation, but do take an active interest in what your child tells you
about school when he or she comes home. Be a good listener, allowing time to talk about school
and people there.

Give your child free playtime at home. Now that your child spends more time in a structured environment, you should allow more free time at home for play.
Get to know your childs teacher. Get involved with the parent-teacher organization, volunteer your services in school, or check out ways you can help improve school conditions if you are
unhappy with them.
Praise your child for the good things he/she has done. Remember there is more to be
gained for accentuating the positive. A pat on the back for the right answer can go a long way. Too
often we tend to focus on poor performance and behavior.
Treat going to school as part of the normal course
of events, something that is expected. If your child
appears nervous about going to school, discuss his or her
concern. Show understanding and offer encouragement. A
calm, matter-of-fact, positive attitude is your goal. Dont
argue the issue of school attendance. It is required by law.
Plan your day so that you can spend time with
your child. Be available when your child needs you. Be
sure there is time to talk about school and the happenings
of each day.
Let your child settle the quarrels or difficulties
that may arise with school friends. Usually, unless
children are harming each other physically, it is wise not
to rush to the rescue. Try to let them work out their own
differences.
Help your child cope with occasional frustrations
and disappointments at school. Learning to cope with
all kinds of experiences is important to development and
helps prepare for the stresses of life.
Avoid comparing this childs school experiences
with how brothers and sisters or neighbors did when
they began school. Such comparisons can be harmful to a
childs self-image. Each of us is different, and we meet lifes
turning points and experiences in our own way.
Think of yourself as supporting and helping your childrens development but not
protecting them from a world about which they must learn.
In rare instances, when a child does not accept school after several days, or when fearfulness
and feelings of distress appear and persist, the child may have a problem. At this point, you should
seek advice from the school guidance counselor, the teacher, the family physician, school psychologist, community mental health center staff, or others who may offer advice.

Many Ways to Get Involved in the School District


The Verona Area School District is committed to seeking input and ideas from parent
and community members. Your involvement
is needed for us to continue to provide a high
quality school experience. The following statement of belief is found in the Educational Plan
of the Verona Area School District,
We believe parents and community members prefer schools that listen, respect, welcome and respond to their ideas.
Listed below are regularly scheduled
events and several other ways that parents
and community members to get involved with
the schools. We welcome you to attend these
events and participate in the schools where
you can.
School Board Meetings - These are
generally held at 7:00 p.m. on the first and
third Monday evening of each month in the
Board Room of the Administration Building,
700 N. Main St. in Verona. These meetings fol-

low a posted agenda and include discussion of


important educational issues and events of the
school district. There is an audience portion at
the beginning of each meeting that is set aside
for residents to provide input to the school
board. It is the policy of the school board not
to comment on topics raised during the audience portion as many of the topics raised are
not posted on the agenda for discussion. These
meetings are also televised locally on VCAT
and FACT cable access television.
Site Councils - These councils exist at
every school site in the district as an extension of the governance of the district for the
purpose of improving student learning. Each
site council engages a representative group of
the school community to collaboratively listen,
learn and share diverse perspectives of the
participants. This group also makes decisions
for the school that reflects the opinions and
expertise of all those involved in the school.

Fitchburgs indoor Playground


After School Care program available for students attending all Verona elementary schools. For children 7-12 years
old. Weekly tuition is $60 per child.
Before School Care program available on Monday mornings. For children 5-12 years old. Tuition is $15 per child.

Each site council meets regularly at a time


that works best for the group to conduct their
business. These meeting are open to anyone
interested to attend. Contact the school principal for a meeting schedule or to express interest in joining a site council.
Parent Advisory Councils (PAC) Schools in the district also have a parent
advisory group that meets regularly to advise
and give feedback to the building principal.
This group is an important touchstone for
the building principal and is an opportunity for parents to get to know more about
school issues. Contact the building principal
for a meeting schedule or to express interest
in becoming a member.
PTA/PTO - These Parent-Teacher
groups meet regularly in the district at some
of the school sites. These groups typically support fundraising and enrichment opportunities for the school, as well as coordinate adult
volunteers, staff appreciation events and communication among parents within the school.
Contact the school office for the names of the
PTA/PTO officers.
Classroom Assistance - Parents are
always encouraged to contact their childs
classroom teacher(s) to see if there are ways
to help in the classroom or assist in other
ways at the school. This kind of interaction
with students can often be the most rewarding
for the parent and student. Parents and community members are welcome to volunteer in
the classroom by reading to students or listening to students read, chaperoning field trips,
helping with special projects, sharing an area
of interest, or simply by being another caring
adult to support a child who needs some special attention. Contact the building principal

or teacher from the school where you would


like to volunteer in the classroom.
Literacy Volunteers - The Verona Area
School District offers a program where caring
adults become literacy volunteers to work with
students in grades K-3 who struggle with their
reading skills. Anyone interested in helping a
young student succeed in reading is invited
to participate as a volunteer. We welcome
any interested community members - parents, retired residents, young adults, service
club members - to consider this opportunity.
Volunteers can spend as little as 30 minutes
per week. Those interested in volunteering
will be invited to participate in a short orientation and training session to learn a few basics
of literacy instruction and the requirements
of the program. Early in the fall, volunteers
are partnered with an elementary classroom
teacher and matched with a student (or two)
from that classroom. Community volunteers
are greatly appreciated and make the program
successful. For community members this is an
opportunity to see how our schools operate and
to better understand how their tax dollars are
being used. This is a win-win situation for the
volunteers as well as the students involved.
Volunteers become very important to the
young people. Volunteers find the experience
enriches their lives as well.
If you are interested, please contact Pat
Wehrley at 608-845-4887. Watch for Literacy
Volunteer training session dates to be
announced in the fall. Thank you for considering this community effort to support our
students.

Application forms are being sent to all homes with a notice to parents or guardians. To apply
for free or reduced price meals, households must fill out the application and return it to the school
(unless notified at the start of the school year that children are eligible through direct certification). Additional copies are available at the office in each school. The information provided on the
application will be used for the purpose of determining eligibility and may be verified at any time
during the school year by agency or other program officials. Applications may be submitted at any
time during the year.
To obtain free or reduced price meals for children in a household where one or more household
members receive FoodShare, FDPIR, or Wisconsin Works (W-2) cash benefits, list the household
member and the FoodShare, FDPIR or W-2 case number, list the names of all school children, sign
the application, and return it to the school office.
For the school officials to determine eligibility for free or reduced price meals of households not
receiving FoodShare, FDPIR or W-2 cash benefits, the household must provide the following information requested on the application: names of all household members and the adult signing the
application form must also list the last four digits of his or her Social Security Number or mark the
box to the right of Check if no SSN. Also, the income received by each household member must
be provided by amount and source (wages, welfare, child support, etc.).

Under the provisions of the free and reduced price meal policy the Food Service Director will
review applications and determine eligibility. If a parent or guardian is dissatisfied with the ruling
of the official, he/she may wish to discuss the decision with the determining official on an informal
basis. If the parent/guardian wishes to make a formal appeal, he/she may make a request either
orally or in writing to: Superintendent, Verona Area School District, 700 North Main Street,
Verona, WI 53593, 845-4300. If a hearing is needed to appeal the decision, the policy contains an
outline of the hearing procedure.
If a household member becomes unemployed or if the household size changes, the family should
contact the school. Such changes may make the household eligible for reduced price meals or free meals
if the household income falls at or below the levels shown above, and they may reapply at that time.
Children formally placed in foster care are also eligible for free meal benefits. Foster children may
be certified as eligible without a household application. Households with foster children and nonfoster children may choose to include the foster child as a household member, as well as any personal
income available to the foster child, on the same application that includes their non-foster children.
The information provided by the household on the application is confidential. Public Law 103-448
limits the release of student free and reduced price school meal eligibility status to persons directly
connected with the administration and enforcement of federal or state educational programs.
Consent of the parent/guardian is needed for other purposes such as waiver of text book fees.
Non-discrimination Statement: The U.S Department of Agriculture prohibits discrimination
against its customers, employees, and applicants for employment on the bases of race, color,
national origin, age, disability, sex, gender identity, religion, reprisal, and where applicable,
political beliefs, marital status, familial or parental status, sexual orientation, or all or part of an

prohibited bases will apply to all programs and/or employment activities.)
