Mark Messman Superintendent, Eden Valley-Watkins Schools The legislature is back in ses- sion after the holiday weekend and the final push to the end of session will take place in the next few weeks. As you know, there are a number of things in play this year that are likely to create more issues for our school district and are likely to cost more money. Some of these include: A new bullying law that will mandate training/planning with no increase in revenue to offset the additional costs to implement; Educator evaluation imple- mentation that requires more administrative time to implement observations, evaluations, and fol- low up; again, with no increase in revenue; Federal health care reform (ACA) requirements that are chal- lenging to understand and, as it is implemented, will likely increase the number of eligible employees April 5 Update and make for higher costs for our school district to implement; HF 573/SF 446 - the manda- tory health insurance bill that will likely take away some of our local decision-making, and complicate the implementation and timelines of the Affordable Care Act. Senior of the Week: The EV-W School District would like to recognize Paige Thielen, daughter of Thomas. Paige is com- mitted to achieve academic excel- lence as she's enrolled in numer- ous college credit classes, and will graduate with honors.
