IOWA Basic Testing 2017/18

National testing for Home School students is mandatory in the odd grades...3rd, 5th, 7th, and 9th.  As a part of your enrollment with Cloverleaf, we offer the nationally normed test, IOWA Basic,  free of charge.  The test is broken into two days and will be administered by our teachers as proctors on April 6th and 13th, in the morning. If you are unable to make one of these days, you will not be allowed to administer the remainder of the test yourself.  You are also not required to take this test through us...there are other vehicles for administration, as well as other tests. Sign-up for the test is Feb. 27th - March 8th.  Students will NOT be allowed to participate in the testing if they are NOT signed up by the 8th.  The sign-up will be found at the front desk on Feb. 27th (there is NOT an online option for signing up).  An email will be sent out the end of March with times and needed materials (ie snacks, pencils, etc.).  Let me know if you have any questions.

Working through the recent winter break, the Douglas County School District Board of Education has kicked off its search for DCSD’s next permanent superintendent. Following a thorough vetting of potential search firms, Ray & Associates (no relation to Board Director David Ray) has been hired to conduct the national search. The cost of the firm, excluding travel expenses, is $40,000. The money will come from the school board's budget, which is used for costs such as legal expenses and conferences.
