A Message from the Superintendent

9/25/2017

Welcome parents and community members to Hamilton Community Schools’ webpage. In an attempt to keep everyone informed, the webpage will be updated monthly after each board meeting with recent happenings.

At the September 18, 2017 board meeting Dr. Singer presented the 2018 budget. Estimated expenditures for the General fund are approximately $4,000,000. Hamilton Community Schools is estimated to receive $2,008,000 in State tuition support. This dollar amount will certainly not cover the expenditures, thus supporting the need to secure the full amount available from the 2012 Referendum. A balance may still be remaining and that would be supported from Rainy Day.

Both the elementary and high schools presented field trips and fundraisers for the 2017-18 school year. Field trips offer opportunities to extend learning outside of the normal classroom. Fundraisers will mostly be in-house, but some students will be doing direct sales. These dollars will be used to support student learning opportunities, help offset the cost of field trips/class events, and support extracurricular needs. We look forward to the support of community members!

Dr. Singer attended a presentation with State Superintendent of Public Instruction, Dr. Jennifer McCormick, on September 13. During that meeting she learned that the State of Indiana is giving priority to STEM (science, technology, engineering, and mathematics) and mastery learning. Dr. Singer shared these are endeavors that Hamilton Community Schools began pursuing last year.

Elementary students have the opportunity to attend a science special rotation, much like art, music, and PE, once a week. During this class, students have an increased opportunity to work, hands-on, with science concepts. Additionally, the high school is looking to participate in Tech Fest this school year. Here, high school students will have an opportunity to participate in math and engineering competitions. The high school has also been able to expand its ICE/job experience program along with offering more college and technical education (CTE) classes.

All Staff members had the opportunity to participate in summer professional development where mastery learning was a focus. The district instructional coach also extends these opportunities each week in morning professional development. The teachers are definitely becoming a community of eager learners!

As always, if you are interested in learning more about Hamilton Community Schools, please contact an administrator with questions or to schedule a tour. See you at the DeKalb County Fair, September 25-30!
