  • Community Meetings

    We believe this is an important time for Central Cass Schools as we look at our current “state of affairs” and proactively plan for the next 25 years of growth. During any time of growth and transition, it is natural and positive to have questions. With the transparent and inclusive planning process, the school board feels the voice of the community came through helping to outline our current state and recommendations. If you have not done so yet, we sincerely hope you will go to our website and look through the final Master Planning Report and Demographic Study, under the Referendum Link. This is the data and documentation outlining our school, needs, and associated recommendations.

    Further, we sincerely hope you can attend any of the following community meetings to allow for updated information and sharing of the potential plans for the school.

  • Nurtured Heart Conference

    Four teachers from Central Cass attended a week long training in the Nurtured Heart Approach in Fargo at the end of July. As new trainers Bard Cote, Kristie Morris, and MaryBeth Pilon completed 50 hours of training and Julienne Olson, as an advanced trainer, completed 61 hours over the week long time frame. The Nurtured Heart Approach is a way for us to build stronger and deeper connections with our students and people in our lives. This is done through focusing on the positive things that are happening. Through the approach we recognize students for displaying the important values and life skills we are working so hard to achieve, instead of dwelling in the moments when things are not going well.

  • Central Cass is a 1 to 1 School!

    Starting in the Fall of 2016, students in grades 6 – 12 will all have their own device that will allow for them to have increased opportunities as they go through school. Classroom teachers will be using a learning management system to provide assignments, handouts and reminders of important dates. There will be many new tools and resources available for both students and teachers, and it should be a very exciting time at Central Cass. In preparation, phase two of the 1:1 in the high school was approved by the Central Cass School Board at the February meeting. The device that was chosen and approved are 11” MacBook Airs. This is a conventional laptop that will allow for the students to explore and utilize a number of applications, save their files on the device, and sync their files with their Office 365 account. The MacBook Airs will be leased for the first four years and then purchased for one dollar on year five. The lease route was chosen to keep expenditures the same as if the district upgraded two computer labs each year. The current labs and portable laptop carts in the high school will be phased out, and all computer activities will then take place on the students’ laptops. The middle school and high school faculty are working together on a device policy handbook. Currently, the handbook is written for middle school use with Chromebooks, but a new policy will include the MacBook Air laptop. The policy is also under review as the first year of 1:1 in the middle school comes to a close and faculty review and update the policy after using the device in the classroom for the first year. There will be parent / student meetings at the beginning of the 2016 -2017 school year to go over the guidelines of both Chromebooks and MacBook Airs. The high school faculty was polled last fall as to what software applications they would like to see on the laptops other than the conventional applications found within Microsoft Office. Although Office will be available to use on
