Substitutes needed at ISD 318

date 06/15/2016 author ISD #318 category In Our Schools comment Leave a comment

WeNeedYou.jpg

Like many districts across the state, ISD 318 is looking for substitutes. But, what you may not know is that there is a need for substitutes beyond the classroom. Substitute custodians, bus drivers, secretaries, food service employees, media center providers, and education support professionals (ESPs) all help keep a child’s school day running smoothly.

 

If you’re looking for flexibility in your schedule, consider for one of the many opportunities we have available. There’s lots of openings to explore! All you need is a desire to help make an impact on kids’ education.

Applications for substitute staff are available on our online application site. To learn more about substitute teaching or other substitute staff opportunities, contact Human Resources Director Colleen Schussman at 218-327-5708.

What's happening inside ISD 318?

date 06/15/2016 author ISD #318 category In Our Schools comment Leave a comment

You’ve heard us talk about how much education has changed. One of the greatest changes is, of course, just how education is delivered. But, beyond that, the number of services and opportunities offered to children has also increased. Within our walls, we offer increased special education services, additional counseling services, tutoring, Reading and Math Corps, foster grandparents, arts opportunities and much, much more. You can see for yourself in our chart of programs below (click on the image to view a larger size).

At ISD 318, highest student achievement is our primary aim. These programs comprise a vital part of every child’s education. New elementary schools will allow us additional space to provide those programs at the elementary and middle levels, and also to our community.

 

To learn more, visit our Facility Planning page under the Parents and Community tab on our website.

For school districts, July 1st means the beginning of the fiscal year, and that means we’re already looking forward to the beginning of school on September 8th. One of the things that we’re doing to prepare for the school year is posting employment opportunities.

 

There are still a number of positions available for the coming year. We’re looking for all kinds of people, from teachers to educational support professionals (ESPs) to bus drivers.

If you’re looking for flexibility in your schedule, consider applying as a substitute teacher, ESP, custodian, or more. ISD 318, like other districts across the state, has experienced a shortage of substitutes in recent years. There’s lots of openings to explore!

 

We have plenty of ways to check out all those opportunities. We post positions online, just choose Employment Opportunities under the Discover Us tab. But, did you know we also list employment opportunities on our Facebook page? All you have to do is choose the job opportunities tab. Either method will bring you right to the online application. So, what are you waiting for? Join our team and help make a difference in kids’ lives!

Know thy impact, part 2

Feedback2015.png

This past year, we asked our staff to “know thy impact.” Every day, the work they do helps to shape the children in our community. Now that the school year has drawn to a close, we want to recognize that impact.

 

Throughout the year, staff were encouraged to share the impact they saw from peers. We also gathered the facebook and email messages received about staff at the end of every school year.

 

Some of the things we heard about the difference our staff made included:

  • Thank you for being an awesome teacher.

  • She made learning fun.

  • The ladies in the kitchen work hard to feed young bodies so minds can grow.

  • Thank you for following up and making a difference to students AND parents.

  • Teaching kids to share with those in need while having fun is a great way to make an impact.

  • Don’t forget about the staff that clean up every day after we leave!

 

Thank you to all of our staff for making an impact on children’s lives!

Thank you parent volunteers!

You’ve heard us talk about the hard work of our parent volunteers before, but we wanted to take a moment to share what teachers have to say about the impact of volunteers and our PTCs.

  • Thank you for the love you show to our school, students, and staff. You are generous with your time, energy, and talents. I wish you could know how much the moments you created this school year made me feel.

  • The time and talents they invest in programs for our kiddos to strengthen, enhance, and enrich their school experiences is second to none! Whatever would we do without them?!

  • They are so willing to pitch in and bring that extra something to our school that makes things fun and memorable.

  • Our PTC has helped us to promote reading by providing us with funds for a reward that encourages kids to read. They have provided us with school supplies and teaching supplies. Every decision they make has our kids’ best interests in mind.

 

Thank you parent volunteers and PTC members for making such a difference in the lives of kids in our district!
