In case you missed it ... a recap of the past two weeks in the world of KASD.

Kaukauna Area School District Approves Elementary Youth Advocate Position

At the February 10, 2020 meeting of the Kaukauna Area School District Board of Education, the motion for pilot program creating an Elementary School Youth Advocate position at Victor Haen Elementary School, effective immediately, was passed. The Youth Advocate (YA) will serve as an additional layer of support for students who encounter barriers to achievement, engagement and emotional regulation. The YA will use outreach strategies that may include, but are not limited to: non-violent crisis interventions; restorative justice practices; ZONES of Regulation; mediation skills; trauma-informed practices; and PBIS or other school-wide behavior programs to promote student engagement, positive behaviors and connections within the school community.

Use IC for Student Absences

We have exciting news for you - which we hope might make some tough mornings a little easier!Infinite Campus now includes a feature that will let parents excuse their student’s absences using the Parent Portal or the Campus Parent app on their phone. You can still call in your students as you always have by phone, but doing so with the Portal or App will allow you to avoid the phone message or excuse multiple students at different buildings at the same time, if needed. Find more information here.

RV Feeds America!

River View students and staff, along with their family, recently spent some time giving back to the community, volunteering their time at Feeding America! 35 volunteers helped sort 11,487 pounds of donated product (they described it as "reverse" grocery shopping). The group did a lot of quality control, checking of dates, and sorting goods into the correct categories, lightening the load for the Feeding America Eastern Wisconsin crew. Way to go River View!

Two KHS Students are WI Microsoft Champs!

Two Kaukauna High School Students have been named Microsoft Office Wisconsin Champions, and haveearned the chance to compete in the Certiport 2020 Microsoft Office Specialist U.S National championship in Dallas, Texas in June.
