News Editor With the establishment of Iowa's Landmark 1987 Excel- lence in Education Act, 435 Iowa School districts will be receiving approximately $39.6 million in state funds for its 1989-90 Phase III pro- gram. Harlan Community School District will receive $129,693 of these funds for its Phase III program goals in 1989-90. Some of these goals include staff and curricular develop- ment, such as individual pro- jects, committee work, semi- nars/workshops and building projects. ii "I think it (the pro- gram) has been a positive influence on education..." Dr. Roy Baker --HCHS superinten- dent I I Other goals include student- centered activities which to- gether contributes to 75 percent or $87,018 of Phase III money. The remaining 25 percent will be used for the perfor- mance-based plan. This plan is to reward superior teachers for their performance based on the teachers' education, expe- hence and evaluations, said Dr. Roy Baker, HCHS super- intendent. The Educational Excellence Phase III program was devel- oped to enhance quality-effec- tiveness of Iowa teachers. "It is based on student en- rollment school districts re- port to the Iowa Department of Education," said Sherie Surbaugh, consultant for Iowa Department of Education. To receive the funds, each school district completes a project application outlining the goals the school district intends to implement with the Phase III money. The Iowa Department of Education evaluates and de- cides whether to approve the project application. After receiving Phase III funds, if the school districts do not use all of the money, the school may carry the bal- ance into the following year, said Surbaugh. If school districts do not use at least 50 percent of the funds, the remaining funds are returned to the Iowa Depart- ment of Education. "I think it (the program) has been a positive influence on education and has helped more schools to do curricu- lum and staff development projects," said Baker. AvoHa Schools The AvoHa School district has received $40,586 in Phase III funds. According to AvoHa Superintendent, Rod Mon- tang, $23,580 will be used for performance-based salaries, $7,820 for staff development, $6,494 for student-centered activities and $2,192 for cur- riculum development. The remaining $500 will be used toward administrative costs, according to the Phase III budget. Like a good neighbor, State Farm is there. See me for car, home, life and health insurance. STATE FARM INSURANCE Call DICK DOTZLER Office: 755-5825 Home: 755-3298 513 Court, HARLAN, IA State Farm Insurance Companies * Home Offices: Bloomington, Illino=s EH-K Schools The Elk Horn-Kimballton (EH-K) School district will receive $22,235 in Phase III funds. A large amount of these funds will be used for curriculum development, said Allan Hjelle, EH-K superin- tendent. Some of these goals include faculty workshops, educa- tional grants and an Excel- lence in Learning Conference held in Kansas City, Kan. EH-K Schools do not have a performance-based pay pro- gram. Hjelle said the plan was not accepted by the teachers. Hjelle added that the EH-K Phase III committee, com- posed of five members, is looking into a career merit based pay in the future. I-K-M Schools The Irwin-Kirkman-Manilla school districts received over $50,000 in the Phase III pro- gram. Individually, the Irwin School district received $22,400 and the Manilla School district received $29,758. "Phase III is a great program. It has given us the money to help improve education in our schools." Joe Graves --Irwin Middle School principal The two school districts applied for the Phase III edu- cational excellence program together and have set seven goals they hope to achieve in 1989-90, according to Joe Graves, middle school princi- pal and Phase III program co- ordinator. Some of these goals include curriculum development, methods of student achieve- ment programs through anal- ysis and testing, and provid- ing opportunities for faculty workshops, seminars and clinics. Other goals include projects for creative methods to en- hance student learning, opportunities for student learning through summer school and individual pro- grams, general staff develop- ment for teachers for coopera- tive learning and performance- based pay for teachers. "Phase III is a great pro- gram," said Graves, "It has given us the money to help improve education in our schools." Sheiby-Tennant Schools The Shelby-Tennant School district will receive $20,169 in Phase III funds. The school will also receive an additional $1,533 for its spe- cial education programs, totaling $21,822. For student-centered activi- ties, $6,965 has been desig- nated for various workshops and projects such as summer school, on-going staff in-ser- vice workshops on critical thinking and kindergarten visitations. In addition to these goals are an active parenting pro- gram, teacher assistant teams, junior great book reading projects, math and writing workshops and science and math club projects, according to Shelby-Tennant Superin- tendent Montang. An additional $5,352 will be used for performance-based pay and $6,575 for curriculum development. The remaining amount will be used for teachers who work on the Phase III committee. "The program is a great opportunity to do projects in the school district," said Montang. Though some people have expressed concern regarding the way the Phase III money is being spend in school dis- tricts, Surbaugh said the state ;egislature has not developed any guidelines of how the money is to be spent in the school districts. Surbaugh added that in Jan- uary 1990, the Iowa Depart- ment of Education is sponsoring a two-day clinic for school districts to discuss and present their plans and goals to other school districts. At the end of the school year, each school district is required to submit a report to outline how the Phase III money was used. Other Southwest Iowa school districts receiving Phase III funds include: At- lantic - $145,398, Audubon - $73,815, Dunlap - $32,898 and Denison - $145,233.
