The Start of School is an Exciting Time for ONE10!

As summer comes to a close, it is the time of year when educators get excited.  We love to welcome our students back and do what fuels our passion...teach and work with kids.

WELCOME BACK STUDENTS AND PARENTS!!!  It’s been a great summer and the staff has done a wonderful job of getting the buildings and classrooms ready. Teachers have worked hard to enhance curriculum and teaching techniques to help with student learning. Reminder…..District Wide Open House on Wednesday, 8/21/19, from 3:30-7:30 at each building. This is your time to meet your child’s teachers and get familiar with the building and classrooms. 

Summer Construction Projects 

Summer Construction
This summer we had the following construction projects happening:

  • New Wildcat Outdoor Sports Complex (final project from the 2014 Referendum)

    • 12 tennis courts… include a bang board

    • 6 pickleball courts

    • 2 sheets of outdoor ice… is an official rink

    • 2 basketball courts

In response to the question about building projects during our SOD issues -- capital projects use a different funding source and we are using our capital money authority to complete the 2014 referendum projects that were promised to the community and passed with 70% approval. We will be using the money that we acquire through retaining open enrolled students to cover the operating costs of running the tennis programs.  ISD ONE10 tennis programs will start in 2020; boys in the spring, girls in the fall.

  • Southview parking lot expansion completed 8/19/19.

  • City roadway by Bayview open to north parking lot 8/26/19.

  • Koch Bus Company new bus garage which is located south of the stadium is scheduled to be completed later this fall. 

Strategic Roadmap Survey Results

In the spring of 2019 students, parents, and staff members were given a survey to rate how ISD ONE10 is doing on the Mission Delivery Points of our Strategic Roadmap. We want to thank everyone for participating and the results are quite positive and impressive. We are very proud of the partnership between students, staff, parents and the community that results in an excellent education for all. We will use the survey results to enhance the good work that’s already happening at ONE10.  Here is a link to the results:

School Board Long Range Planning

The school board spent time this summer working on a 10-year financial vision for ONE10. When completed, the guiding document will help drive decisions as we move forward. Their work is proving to be very beneficial in setting priorities and structuring a positive financial future for ONE10.

We are excited for the First Day of School on August 26, 2019
