Toledo Chronicle, Tama News-Herald

Teaching Leadership and Compensation staff members for South Tama schools have again been assigned to their positions for the 2018-19 school year. The STC School Board approved on a voice reappointing Seth Koch, high school, Kathy Wilkerson, middle school and Joy Schimer and Keely Upah as the TLC coaches in their respective buildings.

The action came during a special meeting of the board on Monday night, March 5, based upon the recommendation of the Site Council and building administrators.

The TLC coaches working with staff members "take on extra responsibilities, including helping colleagues analyze data and fine tune instructional strategies as well as coaching and co-teaching" according to the Iowa Department of Education website. All school districts in Iowa have a TLC plan according to the department.

Deloris Ryan, who has served as the program instructional coach facilitator, is retiring at the end of the 2017-18 school year.

The board adopted both TLC Mentor and Model Teacher handbooks prepared under Ryan.

Also Monday night the school board:

heard a district technology update by Mary Mixdorf, information technology coordinator. She reported on the operational and age status of a total of 1,460 iPads in use by students and staff. Mixdorf outlined various options for purchase or lease for replacements and also reviewed other tech equipment in use.

approved the transfer of Jennifer Benner from driver for a PM bus route to AM and PM for 2018-19 and the elimination of a special education bus route position held by Paddy Richards due to the student no longer being served by the district.

learned the Physical Plant and Equipment Levy currently in place for the South Tama District yields about $130,000 in funding annually. it is received from an assessment approved by the board on property taxes. which is provided for under Iowa law. South Tama voters rejected an additional long-standing Physical Plant and Equipment Levy renewal in 2014. It was noted any PPEL funding must be used specifically for buildings and equipment.
