USD 348 Superintendent pleased with fingerpring technology results

I believe the iPads were bought with grant money and not out of the school budget.

Rural elementary staff members staying positive about move to Baldwin City

Thanks Marion Springs staff for a positive note on your move to town. Vinland staff/patrons can learn a few things from you.

Reversing the decision is not an option the state dept. will accept. Check your facts.

It's my understanding to open a public school, the district must prove to the state dept. that they are fiscally able to support it. It's not just a matter of wanting a building open. With more budget cuts coming down the pike from our governor's direction & economic stresses, I personally don't think USD348 will reopen the outlaying buildings.

typical responses...blame the schools and/or administration for all your problems...if you can't stand your own kids - it's a pretty sad day in Baldwin City, KS.

School board closes rural elementary schools by 5-2 vote

There are several states looking at consolidating all school districts in a county to make 1 district with 1 superintendent. This isn't a new or novel idea. Educational funding is tight in other places other than Baldwin City & this just might be where we are headed.

Douglas County is served by seven school districts.
* Lawrence USD 497 serves Lawrence and the Clinton Lake area.
* Baldwin City USD 348 serves Baldwin City and most of southern Douglas County.
* Perry-Lecompton USD 343 serves Lecompton and most of northwest Douglas County.
* Eudora USD 491 serves Eudora and the northeast part of the county.
* Santa Fe Trail USD 434 covers the southwest part of the county.
* Wellsville USD 289 covers extreme southeast Douglas County.
* Shawnee Heights USD 450 services the extreme western part of the county including Big Springs.

"Vinland Elementary School made the standard of excellence in third- and fifth-grade reading, as well as building-wide in reading." I stand corrected - no math or science awards at Vinland.

Did you folks know that the "excellent" Vinland school didn't make standard of excellence?

You might want to look at what schools got the standard of excellence from the KS State Dept. of Ed. One of the elementary schools in question missed the mark this year.
