Are iPads Saving Dollars?

I was recently asked why Chadron High School still ordered textbooks for a couple of classes since we have iPads available for students. I thought I'd take the time in this article to respond for the public.

Senior Exit Survey Shows Students Very Pleased!

At the end of each school year, Chadron High School contracts with LifeTrack Services, Inc. to conduct a non-biased senior exit survey. We just received the results for the graduating class of 2013. 54 seniors responded to the survey this year. I've included my notes in comparing these results to the past couple of years. Thank you to all of our seniors for providing this important information which helps provide focus for our efforts for continuous improvement of our school.

Renovations for HS Media Center Underway!

One of this summer's projects in the high school is to update our library into a more modern media center. We have recently added opportunities for students to utilize online research tools as well as ebook subscriptions. We hope to have an expanded list of books for students to download and view on ereaders as soon as this fall. In addition to these offerings, we will do some remodeling.

AP Stats Conducts Distracted Driving Research

Distracted Driving AwarenessThe AP Statistics class was given the challenge of running an experiment to determine if there is statistical evidence as to whether or not a number of distractions really impacted driving ability. The class was first asked to research different distractions one may encounter while driving in order to create a hypotheses as to what they felt would occur according to previous experiments.
The students chose to impose four different factors (distracted conversation, beer goggles, texting, and eating) on their participants during their trials.

Wildlife Class Helps With Reforestation

The Chadron High Wildlife class trekked to Chadron State Park this week, compliments of guest speaker, Shelley Steffl.  She joined our class to explain her job and new project (native seed blocks) she's has been working on.  Blocks were designed to help with reforestation, because of last fall's wildfires. This unique idea provides for seed dispersal over rough terrain, while encased in a "natural" fertilized cocoon by nomadic animals.
