October 27, 2020 USD 271 - Stockton Schools Positive case of COVID-19 in a student or staff member: The Rooks County Health Department is notified of all positive cases of COVID-19 in the county. Once the Health Department is notified of a positive case, they are required to call all of the close contacts to the positive case. A close contact is someone who has been within 6 feet of a case for 10 minutes or more or had direct contact with bodily secretions (for example, being coughed or sneezed on). Any students or staff that maintained a 6-foot distance from the positive case would not be considered close contacts and would therefore not be subject to the 14-day quarantine period. The time period for close contact tracing includes any day(s) the positive student or staff attended school and the preceding 48 hours prior to symptom onset (symptomatic cases) or the preceding 48 hours prior to sample collection (asymptomatic cases). The Rooks County Health Department has contacted all of the direct contacts to the positive case, all staff, and parents of the students in the specific classrooms.

2020-10-23 Rooks County schools have seen no significant change in COVID-19 activity this week. While we have some students who are quarantined at home, we have no known transmission of COVID in our schools. Our decision is based on a continued low level of absenteeism in the schools (only 1.1% above baseline from the 2019-2020 school year), a positive testing rate in the county of 12.3% over the last two weeks and a relatively stable incidence rate in Rooks County over the last two weeks. We plan to continue in-person learning for the week of October 26-30, 2020 and will monitor the data over the coming week closely. If there is any adjustment required to the learning setting due to concerns in the schools, we will update your family quickly following a decision. Regulations for postseason events were released by KSHSAA. Masks, social distancing, and limited attendance is required at all events. Please contact your school district for specific information and for ticket availability. We appreciate the support of the community as we work through these issues each week. It is important for us to work together to keep our students, staff, and community safe. Your efforts are noticed and appreciated. Please let us know if you have any questions or concerns.

Rooks County Schools Update 09.28.2020 Rooks County experienced a dramatic increase in COVID-19 activity over the weekend with 32 new positives and three deaths. There are currently 36 active cases within the county, including several that impact our schools. Due to our careful and consistent use of masks and disinfection protocols, we have been able to limit absences due to COVID-19 and are currently working with two cohorts of students in modified quarantine within the county. These students are allowed to continue in-person learning as a group unless they become ill. We continue to see no evidence of COVID-19 transmission in our schools. After an extensive review of the data and conversation with our local health experts, we will continue in-person learning for the remainder of this week and monitor the situation closely. Due to concerns about the evidence of increasing community-based transmission, we are changing attendance policies at all sporting events in the county. Athletes will receive tickets to disperse accordingly. Each athlete will have a predetermined number of tickets for volleyball and football games. All spectators must wear masks at all times during sporting events. If we follow these measures, we will be able to continue having spectators at sporting events. Without these measures, we will transition to no spectators until COVID-19 transmission rates are lower in the county. These are challenging times for everyone. We appreciate your continued support and trust in our team. Bill Lowry, Supt.
09/27/2020 Update USD 271 Stockton Schools has received confirmation that an individual at Stockton High School (grades 8-12) has tested positive for COVID-19. This brings the total number of active cases to 3 in the district. The Rooks County Health Department is in the process of conducting contact tracing, most of which is complete. The district has been in constant communication, and cooperating fully, with the Rooks County Health Department as they perform the necessary contact tracing and we will continue to follow their guidance. The Rooks County Health Department is responsible for contacting students/staff who need to quarantine due to close contact with the individual who tested positive. If you are not contacted by the Rooks County Health Department or the school district instructing your child to quarantine, your child can continue to attend school. USD 271 is following the procedures of mask wearing, social distancing, temperature screening, and disinfecting so schools can remain open. USD 271 students, staff, and community members should continue to screen yourself and please stay home if displaying symptoms of COVID-19. As we navigate situations such as this, please be assured that the health and safety of our students and staff are of utmost importance. If you should have any questions, please contact your school administrator or the Rooks County Health Department. Thank you for your patience and ongoing support.
September 25, 2020 The weekly new COVID-19 cases in Rooks County have doubled in just one short week, from an average of 9 new cases per week to 18 new cases in the past seven days. Last week at this time we had 11 active cases in our county, this week we have 22. The two-week percent positive test rate rose from 7.5% last week to 11.2% this week. The unpredictability of this virus is frustrating and concerning. Fortunately, our absenteeism rate in the schools remains stable and relatively few students and teachers have been impacted by illness or quarantine. Given these concerning trends, the Rooks County school districts and medical health officials are monitoring the situation more closely this week and will meet again on Monday afternoon to review the information from the weekend and new numbers published on Monday at lunch. We plan to start the week by continuing in-person learning on Monday, September 28, but we recognize that we may need to change the learning environment midweek if these worrisome trends persist or worsen.

2020-09-18 For the week of September 21 through 25, all schools in Rooks County plan to continue with in-person learning. Our decision is based on a continued low level of absenteeism in the schools (only 0.5% above baseline from the 2019-2020 school year), a low positive testing rate in the county (5.7% over the last two weeks) and a decreasing incidence rate in Rooks County over the last two weeks. When reviewing all relevant metrics for COVID-19 in our county, we are in the green zone, which means we may continue with our current method of education according to the Kansas State Department of Education Navigating Change guidelines. All of the districts in the county have the same goal of keeping our students in school. Our health experts recommend we continue in-person learning with universal masking and social distancing precautions in place. We appreciate the support of our families as we work together to provide a healthy environment for our students. We will continue to monitor the data closely and provide another update next Friday. Please feel free to contact us directly if you have any questions about the information or the decision.

2020-09-11 As we settle into the 2020-2021 school year, we want to share information from our school team to you, the families who entrust us with your children. All schools in our county are participating in a weekly call to review the current metrics, consider the overall situation in the county, consult with local health experts and make a plan for the following week. One of our goals is to send out an informational message each week on Friday afternoon that will include the learning plan for the following week as well as some of the data on which we base our decision. For the week of September 14 through 18, all schools in Rooks County plan to continue with in-person learning. Our decision is based on a low level of absenteeism in the schools (less than 3% above baseline from the 2019-2020 school year) and a relatively low positive testing rate in the county (6.2% over the last two weeks). Based on this information and other metrics, including hospital capacity and number of new cases in our county, our health experts support our decision to continue in-person learning under the condition that all students and staff continue to wear masks and socially distance. It is clear these measures have been effective at preventing COVID spread in the event of an infected student or staff member. We will continue to monitor the data closely and provide another update next Friday. Please feel free to contact us directly if you have any questions about the information or the decision.

Press Release - Rooks County Schools COVID-19 Advisory Group In preparation for the upcoming school year a Rooks County Schools COVID-19 Advisory Group has been created with representatives from the medical community and all Rooks County schools (USD269, USD270, USD271, and Sacred Heart School). The purpose of the advisory committee is to gather and discuss the most up-to-date information from Rooks County Public Health, CDC, KDHE and KSDE, then to provide recommended policies and procedures to the schools in terms of how to safely start and continue the 2020-21 school year. Safely reopening all Rooks County school buildings is our first priority. The foundation of all discussions is to protect and ensure the social, emotional and physical well-being of students and staff. Decisions and actions will be determined based on the current information from CDC with close collaboration with Rooks County Health officials, KDHE and KSDE. Although definitive plans for the August reopening have not yet been created in Rooks County, schools remain committed to providing quality learning opportunities for all students which may include onsite, hybrid, and/or remote learning environments. KSDE is expected to release guidance to all Kansas schools and the public by July 16. After reviewing this guidance, the Rooks County Schools COVID-19 Advisory Group will provide recommendations for school policies and procedures. Updates will be provided through school websites and media outlets.

Our USD 271 posts are often directed toward our elementary students. We have found a resource we can share with our middle and high school students. Dr. Tim Elmore is an author and speaker. He is an expert on Generation Y and Generation Z. Tonight we are sharing an activity called Trains and Tracks (Structure). We hope you can engage your teen in this chat. Think about a train moving along tracks. It would be easy to assume the tracks prevent the train from moving freely, but it’s just the opposite. The tracks give the train focus and direction. A train without tracks is just a disaster waiting to happen. You are just like this train. If you want to move forward you’ll need structures and systems to keep you on track and help you make progress. (Thank you Dr. Elmore and staff.)
Time to start thinking of Monday! Lunch, 3-30, will be: Pig in a Blanket, veggie bowl, fruit, milk. Next day is breakfast, cereal, juice, milk.
To Staff, Students and Parents 3-28-2020 Governor Kelly today issued a stay at home order for the State of Kansas from Monday March 30th until April 19th. With the guidance from State Board of Education, KSDE, KASB and KNEA this order does not affect the current operations that the School District is currently doing. The reason is that the School District is listed as an essential service. The staff will continue to provide lunches, clean the school buildings and continue the planning for our continuous learning. We will adhere to the guidelines of less than 10 people at least 6 feet apart. This week our Continuous Learning Plan will be completed and approved by the Board of Education. We will submit a waiver to the Kansas State Board of Education. Teachers will be in contact with all students about details of their continuous learning. The information for each student’s continuous learning will be released each Monday starting April 6th and continue through May 15th. It is important that everyone support the continuous learning process so each student will be successful this year and be ready to be successful next year. We are here to support every student and parent during this process. Please contact any staff member if you have questions or a need that we can help you with. #WeAreTigerReady! Thank you for your support! Bill Lowry, Supt.

Redesign Spotlight Community Groups Redesign Spotlight Community Groups Our district was asked, “What is the one thing, that if we don’t include in our redesign, nothing else matters,” Relationships was always the answer! Every day our students PreK-7 meet for 30 minute sessions, (this includes transition time) with a community of students of 15-17 students. Each community is led by two staff members who are passionately building relationships and discussing essential skills for the future to be “Tiger Ready!” During this time, communities form a close bond to each other and study skills such as our Tiger Touchstones (Honesty, Integrity, Respect, Responsibility, Creativity, and Confidence). We also study the Habits of Mind, practice mindfulness, participate in service projects, and also find time to have fun and play. Our goal is for all of our students to have at least one trusted and caring adult they can rely on as they go about their years in our building. Our students love this time each day and each group has something special they have knitted together with joys, celebrations, struggles, challenges, and most of all a sense of belonging. Once a month our community groups get together with a high school group to do a special activity and get to know each other better. The high school communities meet twice daily. They start and end their day together. There focus is on gratitude, goal setting, team building, individual plans of study, and other information focused on the high school learner.
Redesign Spotlight Family Engagement One of our three goals of redesign focuses on family engagement. Our planned focus for the 2018-2019 school year included a parent night for each quarter of the school year. We continued our monthly read aloud evenings focusing on our birth-six year audience. You will also see us at the Rooks County Free Fair again this year! #TigerPride271

Redesign Spotlight What is PBL? Project Based Learning (PBL) is a teaching method that is focused on student learning goals through knowledge and skills gained by working for an extended period of time to investigate and respond to authentic and engaging questions, problems, or challenges. PBL focuses around 8 essential project design elements: Key knowledge, understanding, and success skills Challenging problem/question Sustained inquiry Authenticity Student voice & choice Reflection Critique & revision Public product These design elements work together to help students develop 21st century soft skills while also gaining the content knowledge necessary for academic success. Students get the the opportunity to dig deeper into an area they are interested in by developing driving questions and solving authentic, real-world problems. Project Based Learning creates an environment for teachers to target not only content knowledge gained, but also development of the skills needed to be successful in the 21st century. This kind of approach allows students to explore their own interests while meeting content standards and real-world skills in ways that are authentic and meaningful. Both content knowledge and 21st century skills are obtained by completing long term projects that are focused around 8 essential project design elements: knowledge, understanding, and success skills, a challenging problem or question, sustained inquiry, authenticity, student voice and choice, reflection, critique and revision, and finally, a public product. Project Based Learning requires active participation by students, which makes school more engaging while focusing on the application of the knowledge students are gaining. By giving students the opportunities to take initiative and responsibility for learning, we can help all reach their potential with a successful project that has real-world impact.

On Wednesday of this week Courtney Flower was a guest during 7th Grade Kansas History. She explained how the city of Stockton functions as a city, her role as city manager/clerk, skill set and education to be successful in the position. We discussed how the budget works to pay employees, pool expenses, street repairs and the water treatment plant. The class was engaged and inspired by what it takes for the city to function on a daily basis.
Our 6th Grade Science classes had guest speaker Denae Odle come talk about LEED certification (Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design) along with natural resource use in construction techniques and energy consumption.

USD 271 Redesign Spotlight As part of our social-emotional goal area, USD 271 staff has participated in three in-services with Rebecca Lewis to become trauma responsive. Through this training, we have implemented Zones of Regulation with our students and staff. Zones of Regulation is a tool used to help monitor, self-regulate and control emotions. Zone of Regulation uses four colors, red, yellow, green and blue, to help students visually and verbally recognize how they are doing emotionally at any given moment. Students and staff understand that anyone can experience the four zones throughout their day, but by understanding the zones, we are learning to adjust our thinking and using our tools to get us back into the green zone and ready to learn or teach. "They help me so I can think of how I feel and then I can think of how to have a better day. Because if I am frustrated, I get angry and cannot think to do my math. Zones of Regulation help me get control so I can think." 4th Grader
We had a bus-deer accident east of Stockton this morning, close to Woodston. There were NO students on the bus and the driver is fine but the bus is not drivable. Another bus and driver have been sent to cover the route.
USD 271-Stockton Schools Community Redesign Meeting 7pm-8pm at Stockton Grade School -Tiger Conference Room Who are our students? Together...how might we____?
Redesign Spotlight K-7 Personalized Learning Personalized learning allows all children to receive a customized learning experience. Students learn at their own pace with structure and support in challenging areas. Learning aligns with interests, needs and skills, and takes place in an engaging environment where students gain a better understanding of their strengths. ( National Center for Students with Learning Disabilities, Personalized Learning: Meeting the Needs of Students with Disabilities) Our Kindergarten through 3rd grade classes take part in mixed-age guided reading groups. K-5 is using Lexia Core5 for personalized English/Language Arts instruction and DreamBox for Math instruction. This allows them to complete grade-level materials at their own pace. Lexia provides teachers with a recommended amount of units for each student to complete each week to stay on-target for grade-level success. The Junior High is using Power Up and Reading Plus as a personalized English/Language Arts platform. Several classrooms are using playlists for students to track their personal goals each week. This provides students with choice, accountability, and specific things they need to focus on. In the classrooms, teachers are utilizing small group instruction to deliver instruction geared toward different skills that students are working on as well as delivering the same materials at different levels.
Redesign Spotlight: 8-12 grade communities Relationships are key at USD #271 Stockton, and we are starting and ending each day with this in mind. Research conducted by Harvard University, the Carnegie Foundation and Stanford Research Center has all concluded that 85% of job success comes from having well-developed soft skills and people skills and only 15% of job success comes from technical and knowledge (hard skills). At SHS students in grades 8-12 meet for the first ten minutes of school and the final 20 minutes of the day with their teacher advisor. These students will continue with the same group throughout their high school years. There are 14 community groups, consisting of 8-10 students ranging from 8-12 grades. Students form long-lasting relationships that benefit from a consistent daily presence. In the a.m. meeting, students begin their day by writing in their journals: reflecting on one thing they are thankful for, a goal for the day or week and identifying which Zone of Regulation they are in. This is an opportunity for students to begin on a positive note, set goals and be aware of their emotional state. Students can also take advantage of the grab and go breakfast offered in the hallway as they enter. The p.m. meeting consists of students and advisors working together on character development through discussion and reflection on our Tiger Touchstones and developing habits for success with the 16 Habits of Mind. Students are also developing their Individual Plans of Study, which includes exploring career interests and skills through the Career Cruising program, developing their Vision Board and sharing with parents, and planning their future course of study for high school and beyond. Advisor teachers serve as mentors to guide their students through this process.

USD 271 Redesign Spotlight 6th-7th grade Mentoring As students in middle school encounter and struggle with social and emotional changes that occur during this transitionary period to adulthood, many educators seek to help students develop skills and dispositions—such as resilience, perseverance, and determination—to ensure that they can problem-solve and work through challenges as well as take ownership of their learning and decisions (National Middle School Association [NMSA], 2010). At USD 271 we spend mentor time meeting the needs of students. We have three groups with a mixture of 6th and 7th grade students that meet once a day for 20 minutes. During this time, we cover essential life skills (Organization, Time Management, Self-Control, etc.) as well as improving students’ understanding of techniques to build confidence, increase self-esteem, advocate for themselves, build character, and be respectful young adults. During mentor sessions, we use a variety of resources: Choices magazine from Scholastic, Career Cruising program, and Responsive Advisory Meeting Book. Career Cruising allows the students to find out what interests them and it gives insight on the steps they will need to take to achieve careers in a particular field. All three mentor groups cover the same concepts but at different times. Mrs. Dunlap’s group is currently working on deeper understanding of career interests and researching careers in that area. Miss Kennedy’s group has had extensive conversations about stress, what causes stress, and how to effectively manage stress. Mrs. Moffet’s group has been working hard on character building.
There will be NO SCHOOL today in Stockton; Monday, 2.25. The blower motor on the boiler has failed and there is no heat in the secondary building.

As we continue to communicate with our stakeholders, we will return to our weekly Redesign Spotlight. Each week we will spotlight one of our redesign implementations. Today we are sharing some background on the Kansans Can School Redesign Project. In 2015, Kansas State Board of Education announced its new vision for education- Kansas leads the world in the success of each student. Kansans have identified the need for their schools to transition to a student -focused system that provides support and resources for individual success. We are moving away from a “one-size-fits-all” system that relies exclusively on state assessments. Kansans want schools to place an equal amount of focus on assisting students in developing nonacademic skills, like social-emotional growth, as they do on developing academic skills. In August of 2017, USD 271-Stockton was named a Mercury School in Redesign. Our vision- We are TIGER Ready! (TIGER stands for tiger touchstones, innovative, grit, empowered, and relationships) is guiding us through school redesign. (Taken from KSDE’s Talking Points for the Kansans Can School Redesign Project)
