This time of year there is always a buzz in the building with students and staff wanting and waiting for spring to arrive. We can see warmer weather on the horizon and there is hope of spring soon.
It is great to see the spring activities starting up and outdoor fun is about to happen. Thanks to all of our staff for their great work to keep students focused in the classroom and thanks to all those who are leading a spring activity/event for our students. Our ONE10 staff does an excellent job of providing wonderful experiences for our awesome ONE10 students!!
Thanks to ALL….WE Are ONE10!!
March 28 School Board Meeting Notes
On Monday night, 3/28/22, the school board listened to some passionate public comments, heard a growth presentation from the City of Waconia, and voted on some impactful action items. During the presentation from Lane Braaten, Waconia City Planner, we heard that the city has approved plots for nearly 1,000 residential homes in the city of Waconia. This information is helpful for our school district as we start to plan for future growth at ISD ONE10.
Here are a few of the action items to be aware of that took place on Monday night:
The resignation of our Director of Finance, Todd Swanson. (11.5 years at ISD ONE10)
The hiring of schooliq to provide contracted financial services until June 30th to provide school finance support in the absence of a Finance Director.
Retirement announcement of Dave Grandy, Director of Building and Grounds, who plans to retire on June 30, 2022.
The retirement announcement of Jun Rolf, a longtime building secretary who is at LT.
The hiring of Enid Schonewise as our new Director of Human Resources.
The hiring and return of Jason Paulson to ONE10, who will be our Performing Arts Facilities Coordinator.
Many other essential hires and some quality staff leaving ONE10.
