CGBSD Students Achieve at a High Level
The Cedar Grove-Belgium School District achieved an Exceeds Expectations rating as a part of the state’s accountability system. Included in the district’s overall rating is the elementary school’s rating of Significantly Exceeds Expectations, the highest rating, and the middle school and high school’s rating of Exceeds Expectations, the second highest rating. The school district out performed the state in three priority areas including student achievement, closing gaps where subgroups of students are making gains at a pace faster than the state’s subgroups of students, and on-track/postsecondary readiness. The elementary school outperformed the state in all four priority areas including student achievement, closing gaps, on-track/postsecondary readiness, and student growth in math and English Language. The overall performance of our students represents the tireless work of our teachers, instructional support staff, and administrators. The school district continues to set high academic standards for all students while providing timely and effective support systems as part of the district’s commitment to continuous improvement work.
High School English Teacher Carol Schumacher Earns Distinction
Cedar Grove-Belgium High School has a Nationally Board Certified Teacher. High School English Language Arts teacher Ms. Carol Schumacher completed her national board certification requirements this past December. The requirements included a content knowledge assessment in the areas of reading, writing, and literary genres and completion of a portfolio focusing on differentiation in instruction. Only 2% of teachers are nationally board certified in the state of Wisconsin. As an educator, Ms. Schumacher is constantly improving her instructional repertoire and asking the critical questions to better educate her students. She is insistent on creating positive and productive relationships with her students while instilling the value in being a lifelong learner. Congratulations to Ms. Schumacher and her successful completion of this most challenging and rewarding milestone. The CG-B School District is extremely proud of Ms. Schumacher.
High School Athletic Director Scott Parsons
to Serve Dual Role
The Board of Education approved the development of a community recreation program where current high school athletic director Scott Parsons will serve as the community recreation program coordinator in addition to his high school athletic director duties. The community recreation program is part of the district’s strategic plan that includes enhancing both student and community member educational opportunities and health/wellness experiences. Mr. Parsons will be responsible for the planning, development, and operation of a comprehensive public recreation program for the community. Additionally, Mr. Parsons will immediately begin managing and overseeing the community swim program in addition to assuming fitness coordinator responsibilities effective July 1, 2018.
"I am very excited for the opportunity to add the responsibility of Community Recreation Coordinator alongside my role as CG-B Athletic Director! There is so much potential for what we can do with the Recreation Department. We have some unique assets to utilize and showcase: the fitness center, the pool, and an amazing high school with great facilities, which we can utilize for so much in this program. I am formulating a survey, which I’m asking everyone to participate in. This will gauge what areas of programming would be desired and also to generate ideas of potential offerings. The online survey will be available to the community in mid to late February, and I encourage all to provide input/suggestions, which will be part of our initial programs. These will include everything from athletics to adult enrichment opportunities, and have something for every age range. Our goal is to bring people together, provide opportunities for physical, social and intellectual growth, and be another strong connection between the community and the school district." Mr. Parsons can be reached by phone 920-668-8686, ext. 530 or email: firstname.lastname@example.org
