Washington Island School District has attracted the attention of the Wisconsin Department of Public Instruction, in a good way. Mathematics Consultant Mary Mooney was on the Island last week to advise teachers of the latest trends in instructing strategies. Washington Island District Adminstrator Michelle Kanipes says the visit was vital as the state prepares for curriculum review this winter.
Mooney also met with parents during the Open House event. Kanipes lauded Washington Island parents as being attentive to their child's instruction. Being able to interact with state officials provided valuable insight to the community as well as the faculty. The school year begins Tuesday.
