  • TOY2015 Katie McLaughlin Chosen as ACSC Teacher of the Year 

    Katie McLaughlin, an art teacher shared between Pine Tree and Sycamore Elementary Schools, was selected as the Avon Community School Corporation Teacher of the Year. During opening day activities, she was presented with a special plaque and award from the Sharon Pinnick Educational Fund, (Hendricks County Community Foundation), a check from the Avon Rotary Club, a small stipend from the District, as well as a gift card from A+ Teaching Supplies and a special bouquet from Flowered Occasions. Miss McLaughlin was selected as Avon’s Teacher of the Year by a committee comprised of community members.

    Miss McLaughlin was noted for incorporating technology in the classroom with stop-motion animation, photography, coding and 3-D modeling.

    “Miss McLaughlin’s teaching philosophy focuses on a student-centered choice based approach,” said Dr. Margaret (Maggie) Hoernemann, ACSC Superintendent. “She encourages students to learn to think like artists to generate their own ideas and become more comfortable navigating the creative problem-solving process. She is amazing in her use and understanding of technology integration within her lesson design.”

    Miss McLaughlin has taught in Avon Schools for three years. She received a bachelor’s degree from Edinboro University (Edinboro, PA) as well as her post baccalaureate certification. 

    The other candidates (who were previously selected as their buildings’ Teacher of the Year) included: Kristin Bolek (Avon High School); Luke Tudor (Avon Middle School North); Jim Casey (Avon Middle School South); Dru Pearcy (Avon Intermediate School East); Laura Glatz (Avon Intermediate School West); Tara Roberds (Cedar Elementary); Haley Roesch (Hickory Elementary); Robin Britton (Maple Elementary); Ruby Laux-Jacobs (River Birch Elementary); Laura Burkhart (Sycamore Elementary); and Kayla Breivogel (White Oak Elementary).

    Avon Community School Corporation submitted Miss McLaughlin’s unique portfolio to the Indiana Department of Education for the state’s selection process of the Indiana Teacher of the Year award.

  • ACSC Announces New School Bus Tracking App
     

    As students prepare to head back to school, parents in Avon Community School Corporation are gearing up with an innovative new website and mobile device app that provides GPS tracking of their child’s bus. The new app, Here Comes The Bus®, provides parents and school administrators the real-time location of a child’s bus on a smartphone, tablet or computer.

    “In an effort to keep children safe, parents want to know the location of their child’s bus, whether it’s running late, early or on time. Here Comes the Bus will give them the information they need when they need it,” said Mike Rawlinson, Transportation Director for Avon Schools.

    Through the Here Comes the Bus app, parents can select the alerts they want to receive and how. For instance, they can receive a push notification* or email alert when their child’s bus is within five minutes of the bus stop. In addition, parents can quickly locate their bus on a customizable map from anywhere, and will see when it arrives at or leaves school, or if there’s a schedule change.

    “We think it’s an essential tool for our parents and also helps us reduce tardiness and absences related to students missing the bus,” added Dr. John Atha, Avon Community Schools Assistant Superintendent. “By using it, parents won’t have to ask or guess about the location of their child’s bus at any given time. They’ll know.  It’s going to alleviate worry and bring peace of mind.”

    The only mobile device app available in the U.S. that alerts parents that their child’s bus is near, Here Comes the Bus is from Synovia Solutions™, the same company that provides GPS tracking systems for Avon buses. These GPS software solutions work to increase fuel efficiency, improve safety measures and track vehicle location.

    “When we heard about the availability of the website and app, we knew it was a great solution,” explained Dr. Atha. “There are no hardware costs so it was as easy as flipping the switch to engage the program. Most importantly, we knew that we could trust Synovia Solutions to protect our children by helping to shield students from inclement weather, rush-hour traffic and other roadside dangers.”

    Here Comes the Bus can be first accessed on the web and then downloaded for a fee via the App Store or Google Play by Avon Community School Corporation parents. The app is secure, providing parents with a private ID that grants access to only their child’s bus. Here Comes the Bus is available in three languages, users can choose between English, Spanish and French.

  • ACSC Rolls Out New Technology Initiative!
     
    Avon Community School Corporation (ACSC) is implementing a new program for students in 5th through 12th grades. The Strategic Technology Expansion Plan and Upgrades Program (STEP-UP) will prepare Avon students for a technology-rich future while expanding learning outside the traditional classroom.

    When the school year begins in 2015, students in 6th, 8th and 9th grades will receive a laptop computer for classroom instruction. In the 2016-17 school year, STEP-UP will expand to include all students in 5th through 12th grades.

    “We are excited to bring the STEP-UP Program to our schools,” said ACSC Technology Director Jason Brames. “Technology based tools offer greater opportunities for collaborative learning and will enhance teaching and learning in our schools.”

    ACSC teachers are receiving specialized professional development and will use up-to-date technology curriculum in the classroom. When students receive their computers, they will receive age-appropriate instruction regarding digital citizenship. Parent education sessions will be held at the schools for Avon families to ensure a smooth transition to STEP-UP. 

    To learn more about the STEP-UP Program, please visit www.avon-schools.org/stepup. There is a video, FAQ and other details to assist Avon families.
