School Board Notes: Supporting The German Program, Certified Enrollment Announced

Charles City, Iowa – The Charles City Community school district held a regular meeting last night.


That’s Heiki Makk, principal of the school’s new german partner school and Shari Stoll the German instructor at Charles City High school.

The school board heard an informational exhibit form the school’s German partner from Saxony-Anhalt Germany. German students and staff are in Charles City and Saint Ansgar until the morning of October 26th.  

Superintendent Mike Fisher released the school’s certified enrollment numbers.  The school’s enrollment for funding increased 38.97 from last year and actual students being served rose 25.27.

Fisher says the numbers are good news to the school district.  


The reason enrollment is determined by decimal numbers are because some students who aren’t receiving services within the building full time are still counted, like dual enrolled courses. Or it could be because a family who lives in the district open enrolls to another school.  The certified enrollment determines how much money the school receives. With area enrollment declining, Fisher says the high school has add 19 students to the district.


Principal Kara Shannon and Instructional leader Marie Conklin presented their work in making pre-kindergarten through fourth grade  trauma informed staff to assist students who experience some sort of trauma in their background.

The board approved nearly 300 thousand dollars for the school budget review committee application.  This action authorizes the request for to modify the supplemental amount for increasing enrollment.

The board also approved the purchase of a 25-passenger, 4-chair gas lift bus for $87,977.
