General Assembly Receives Mixed Report Card From Indiana’s Schools Chief

first_imgAPRIL 6, 2018By Quinn FitzgeraldTheStatehouseFile.comINDIANAPOLIS ­–Indiana’s state superintendent of public instruction on Monday gave the General Assembly mixed reviews over what was accomplished for education in the 2018 legislative session.Dr. Jennifer McCormick said she was excited to see the success of Senate Enrolled Act 177, which establishes one Indiana diploma, and Senate Enrolled Act 135, which requires the Department of Child Services to notify schools if a child is removed from the home. SEA 135 was signed into law Friday.One bill McCormick said she wished more had been done with the school safety bill, House Bill 1230, which was on the agenda when the clock ran out on the session.McCormick said HB 1230 was a complicated bill for the department and had parts they didn’t like, such a provision to increase audits of safety plans for every school. The state was planning to give IDOE $1 million to conduct the audits. McCormick said this would be a waste of money because the system is already working.“We do about 60 audits a year because of our capacity but it’s going in and making sure we’re pretty much-doing spot checks,” she said. “We think that audit would be a huge lift, and we’re not sure there would be a big benefit to that.”Instead, she would like to see the money spent on vetted resources and equipment for schools that need it. She did, however, like the idea to give schools an additional $5 million and was disappointed the bill died in session. That might be revived in the special session that Gov. Eric Holcomb announced Monday.“That would have been big,” she said. “This year was the first year that we had several districts that were denied, or schools that were denied, funding. Those are typically matching grants up to $50,000, but that’s your max amount depending on the size of the school that’s applying.”“We were hoping to get some of that money to help offset some of the costs that our schools are telling they need for safety.”In reaction to the February shooting in Parkland, Fla., McCormick released a statement urging the General Assembly to address school safety.House Bill 1315 was another bill that died on the last day of the session. If passed, the bill would have allowed the state to appoint emergency managers and replace elected school boards with appointed advisory committees in districts in financial distress. Muncie and Gary’s schools were targeted for falling into financial difficulty.“There were parts of 1315 that we supported,” McCormick said. “I’m worried about the $10 million that was in the bill that now, obviously, didn’t get through. I’m very concerned about that fiscal piece. They needed that. Even if they stay under an emergency manager, they’re going to have to have fiscal help.”Monday, Holcomb outlined five points he wants lawmakers to cover during a special session in May which includes working on a $12 million loan for Muncie schools.In his 2018 agenda, Holcomb wanted every Indiana school to offer at least one computer science course by 2021. Senate Enrolled Act 172, which is waiting for Holcomb’s signature, meets that goal.At the beginning of the session, McCormick said while she supports computer science, she did not want it to be a requirement for graduation. The bill requires grades K-8 schools to incorporate it into their curriculum but for grades 9-12 to make it an elective.Despite the number of changes schools will have to undergo with all of the school-related legislation that has passed, McCormick said she has faith in them and IDOE will be helping them as they adjust.“There are a lot of unknowns, but I go back to our districts have typically in the past just get it done. We’ve stayed focused on kids. That’s the charge of Indiana educators,” McCormick said.FOOTNOTE: Quinn Fitzgerald is a reporter for TheStatehouseFile.com, a news website powered by Franklin College journalism students.

Prince Will Show Off His ‘B-Ball Skills’ At First-Ever Solo Arena Performance

first_imgPrince’s “Piano & A Microphone” tour will continue this Friday, March 4 at the Oracle Arena in Oakland, CA. The venue, which holds 20,000 people will be in stark contrast to the intimate solo shows the Purple One has already hit on this tour, playing to small crowds in Australia, New Zealand and Oakland, CA thus far.Prince has upped the ante by hyping the show as a “can’t miss,” saying he will dedicate the first hour of his concert to “show off his b-ball skills” in a Twitter post. Oracle Arena is the home to the defending NBA champions, the Golden State Warriors. As many will recall from the hilarious Chappelle’s Show sketch featuring comedian Charlie Murphy, there is ample precedent of Prince being a pretty good hooper, so there could be more to this than we think.Tickets for Prince’s solo concert at Oracle Arena are on sale now and can be purchased through the venue’s website here.last_img read more

Students attend Bessette canonization in Rome

first_imgA group of Notre Dame students studying abroad in Europe this semester were able to attend the canonization of St. André Bessette, the first member of the Congregation of Holy Cross to be canonized, in Rome Oct. 17. Last spring, the University contacted students who were planning to go abroad this semester to gauge interest in attending the canonization, according to Fr. Joe Carey, interim director of Campus Ministry. “It was talked about in the spring that our students abroad would be the ones who would go,” Carey said. “We knew a long time ago that the canonization would be in October.” The students completed a short survey on why they wanted to attend the canonization and received an e-mail to notify them whether they were accepted. Some students, such as junior Sarah Kimball, who is currently studying abroad in Dublin, were drawn to the canonization because of prior knowledge of Bessette. “I decided to go because I learned about Brother André in a class last year, and I just thought it would be a once-in-a-lifetime experience to see a canonization at the Vatican,” Kimball said. The group of students who made the trip from different countries around Europe they were in was treated to an all-weekend affair. The University had activities and meals scheduled for the students from Friday evening to Sunday afternoon. Junior Monica Townsend, who is studying in Angers, France, said she was particularly touched by a film the group watched about Bessette’s life, called “The Miracle Man of Montreal.” “It was a really great orientation to the life of the man we had come to see,” Townsend said, “and nearly everyone was tearing up hearing the testimonies of the people he had cured of some illness or disability.” The Center for Social Concerns also organized service projects for the students to participate in the day before the canonization, Carey said. The activities helped the students truly understand the services Bessette performed throughout his life. “I went with a group that helped organize and sort medicine for the St. Egidio community, a service group that offers aid and assistance to the homeless and elderly in Rome and around the world,” Townsend said. “It really hammered home the theme of selfless service that Saint André exemplified.” For Kimball, the most powerful experience was being surrounded by thousands of people who were all connected by their faith during the canonization in Saint Peter’s Square, Kimball said. “I always heard about how being Catholic meant you were part of a larger community that spans the world, and we are all connected by being Catholic,” Kimball said. “However, it was hard for me to really grasp that concept until I went to Rome and just saw the sheer number of people from all around the globe.” The canonization was an important one for not only the Congregation of Holy Cross, but also Canadian Catholics, as Bessette is the first Canadian saint. Pope Benedict XVI also canonized five other saints at the same time as Bessette. Excerpts about each saint were read in his or her native language, Townsend said, and after each name was announced, it was easy to tell where each saints’ following was located. Townsend said the fact that the ceremony connected so many people made it an even more incredible experience. “It offered an extreme sense of spirituality and also pride in being part of the Catholic community, a community that really does touch every corner of the world,” Townsend said. “It was awesome that ND could give us that opportunity.” Even though they were thousands of miles away from South Bend, the group of students remained loyal to their school over the weekend by watching the Notre Dame football game against Western Michigan. “It was an incredible mixture of the wonder of being in a foreign country and of the sense of home I get from Notre Dame,” Kimball said.last_img read more

Early garden

first_imgBy Mike IsbellUniversity of GeorgiaSo you didn’t get your garden planted this spring because theground was so wet, huh? And you still want to plant a garden.Well, plant a fall garden.In most cases, choose early-maturing vegetables. Lettuce,radishes, spinach, turnips and peas can be started from seed.Lettuce and radish can be seeded about every two weeks. Broccoli,cauliflower and collards can be transplanted toward the middle ofAugust to mid-September.For hardy crops like cabbage, cauliflower and collards, countback from your average first frost date (if you know) the numberof days the vegetable takes to mature (if you know that), andplant at that time.Backup planIf you don’t know either of those, then call your countyextension agent and find out.For half-hardy plants like beets and carrots, allow an additionalweek. And for tender crops like beans and sweet corn, allow anextra two weeks. Hopefully, this will keep an early frost fromkilling your vegetables before they mature.The garden pests will be out there, so be extra diligent inwatching for them.You can grow an abundant crop of fall tomatoes, but where can youbuy young tomato plants in the middle of the summer?Cut the suckersThe easiest way to solve that problem is to cut small suckersfrom spring-planted tomatoes and let them grow to full-sizeplants.You may have pinched out suckers at the first of the season, butsome have grown back in the axil of the stems. They should be 4to 6 inches long and have a growing point with several leaves.Sometime this month, cut the suckers from the plant, remove thelower leaves up to the bud and place them in a jar of water foran hour or two.Then plant them in pots for later transplanting or plant themdirectly into the garden. Keep them watered heavily for a fewdays until they’ve taken root.If you don’t want to do that, then simply lop off the top foot orso of a healthy plant and set it in water for a few days, thenplant it directly into the garden. Just don’t forget about. Itwill need to be watered and mulched well until roots form.If you don’t want to do that, just forget the tomatoes.(Mike Isbell is the Heard County Extension Coordinator withthe University of Georgia College of Agricultural andEnvironmental Sciences.)last_img read more
