School tech discussed in Cherokee
William Halder, the new technology director for the Cherokee School District, gave introductory remarks at the Cherokee School Board meeting on Sept. 19. This is the first school job for Halder, formerly a network administrator at Buena Vista Regional Medical Center.
He is enthusiastic about developments at the school and about the assistance he has received from staff and students.
Part of the student help was referred to in the report of Washington High School Principal Scot Aden. He reports that the high school currently has 15 students working at the student help desk. Aden stated, "Students have been a huge help for our tech coordinator. Students have been fixing Chromebooks, putting computer carts together and problem solving issues for individual students and staff."
The school board passed two resolutions of acknowledgement for organizations that have made outstanding contributions to the school districts. Board President Paul Fuhrman read the resolutions at the meeting:
Be it resolved that the Board of Education of the Cherokee Community School District recognizes the Cherokee State Bank. Cherokee State Bank has positively impacted school climate by providing funding to assist with technology purchases for TK-2 students and supplies for the high school agriculture program. Be it also noted that the welcome bags provided to all staff members before opening exercises positively impacted staff morale and were much appreciated. A Big Braves Thank You is extended to Cherokee State Bank for their generous donations.
Another resolution reads:
Be it resolved that the Board of Education of the Cherokee Community School District recognizes the Cherokee Booster Club and Community Friends of CCSD. The Cherokee Booster Club and Community Friends of CCSD have positively impacted school climate by encouraging youth to attend school activities as a result of purchasing every student in grades K-12 individual activity passes. A Big Braves Thank You is extended to the Cherokee Booster Club and Community Friends of CCSD for their generous donation.
