Bainbridge Island, WA — The Bainbridge Island School District Board of Directors has announced the names of four superintendent candidates who will participate in interviews Tuesday, April 12, and Wednesday, April 13. Michael Tolley, associate superintendent for teaching and learning, Seattle Public Schools, Seattle, Wash. After reviewing the qualifications of 24 applicants from across the nation, and even a few from overseas, we feel these candidates represent a rich variety of leadership experiences that would benefit our district,” said Board President Mev Hoberg.
Each finalist will participate in interviews with board directors and attend meetings with various stakeholder groups, including a community forum where candidates will take questions from community members who will also have an opportunity to provide written feedback. Michael Tolley began his education career teaching marine biology and was an adjunct professor in the department of biology, College of Charleston.
District board directors began their search last November after Superintendent Faith Chapel announced her decision to retire in June after eight years at the helm.
For more information, contact Jim Hager, search consultant, (702) 280-1006, .(JavaScript must be enabled to view this email address).
As we prepare to thank her and bid her a fond farewell, the Board of Directors has established The Vicky Marsing Innovation Fund to ensure our schools are on the leading edge among public schools in Washington.
Four Bainbridge Island Public School District schools made the state’s highest grade by winning the Washington Achievement Award for student progress. The OSPI bases selection of Washington Achievement Award winners on the State Board of Education Revised Achievement Index and statewide assessment data for the three previous years. The federal act requires 100 percent of students to meet standards in math and reading, including those with learning differences and English language learners.

BSF works to support the school district’s vision and mission by raising funds, gathering resources and acting as a catalyst to involve the community in public education. The Rotary Club of Bainbridge Island recently awarded a Community Grant to Bainbridge Schools Foundation for Elementary Robotics using money raised at the 2013 Rotary Auction & Rummage Sale.
NEW YORK – Today Kathy Meulen Ellison of Sonoji Sakai Intermediate School in Bainbridge Island, Wash. Known for guiding the learning process beyond the walls of her library, Ellison effortlessly collaborates with teachers to seamlessly integrate technology into the classroom and initiates innovative projects that engage students on all levels, encouraging them to become lifelong learners.
Only 60 librarians nationwide have won the I Love My Librarian Award since its inception in 2008. There are a total of 166,305 certified librarians in the United States and more than 200,000 dedicated library workers who offer services to the elderly, job-seekers, small business owners, families, students and others. As part of the nominating process, more than 1,100 library patrons submitted detailed stories regarding how their librarian had an impact on their communities and lives.
All of the funds donated by BSF are used to support educational programs and services for students (e.g. In September, the School Board approved a proposal from Bainbridge High School to support college and career readiness by providing free PSAT testing for all Gr.
Both BHS and EHHS informed parents and students of this new opportunity, and we have seen a significant increase in pre-registration at both schools for both Gr.
This data certainly reflects student interest in this new opportunity!  We are so grateful to the Foundation for supporting so many educational opportunities for our students! Bob Seaby, a retired school teacher from California, wrote a great GUEST OPINION in the Bainbridge Review.  Check it out! After enjoying spectacular summer weather, students of Bainbridge Island School District returned to class on Wednesday, Sept.
As many of you are aware there have been e-mails and letters via the Tripp Wire and other venues describing, discussing and analyzing all that is allegedly wrong with our schools and in most cases offering solutions. I referred to one such problem on an island discussion group as being more of a “First World problem” and quickly drew the wrath of the moderator. Nonetheless, when we read of the Philadelphia schools not having sufficient funds to open many of their schools, the Chicago system suffering massive teacher layoffs and school closures and nearby Snoqualmie teachers almost going out on strike, we should count our blessings. Of course no system is perfect as we read and hear of some Bainbridge parents working with district officials seeking what is best for their children. Unfortunately, the time for school articles, especially those of the sky is falling slant or the grass is greener elsewhere persuasion, is no longer confined to coincide with the opening of school in September. As a result, I thought it might be somewhat novel and even refreshing to focus on the positive, for there is much that is positive and noteworthy about our community, our teachers and our students to share and appreciate.
For the last three years, the Bainbridge Schools Foundation raised and awarded the school district more than $1 million to reduce class size and support innovative programs.
Additionally, the Parent Teacher Organizations and the various Booster Clubs contribute well over half a million dollars each year to deal with needs and requests for assistance at individual school sites. Finally, there are many more organizations, businesses and individuals, too numerous to list here, who generously assist the district and our schools to the eventual benefit of our students. Let’s face it, people do not give money to a school system in which they do not have faith and confidence. To capture and capitalize on our attentive students, Bainbridge schools have a teaching staff of 224 educators with average teaching experience of 14 years. Many of us know that as a result of the efforts of the office of the Secretary of Education Arne Duncan, we are testing our students ad nauseam.
I am a firm believer that for most students the only two tests that carry any real weight and significance are taken in the high school years and that would be the state driver’s test and either the SAT or the ACT.
Last year 89 percent of BHS seniors had plans to continue their education with 77 percent going to a four-year college or university and 12 percent to a two-year school. Graduating seniors gained admission to more than 200 public and private colleges and universities in the United States and internationally while being awarded well more than $1 million dollars in scholarships.
As I wrote earlier I believe our schools are excellent; but as other tests in various grades indicate there is always room for improvement.
Having been a teacher for almost 40 years before retiring in 2008, I have witnessed and endured my share of alleged experts with their PowerPoint presentations, attended required mind-numbing staff development and in-service days and experienced the absurdity of No Child Left Behind. Unfortunately, these self-appointed experts have a penchant for making mountains out of mole hills so that small issues or misunderstandings become major concerns and dubious solutions are offered for these alleged problems. Bottom line is that we have to consider if what we are offering our students is preparing them for life after high school. Bainbridge Island was just listed as the number 5 community to live in in the state of Washington. The Patsy Collins Award for Excellence in Education, Environment and Community, celebrates educators who extend learning beyond the classroom – teachers who inspire their students through projects that relate to environmental and community stewardship. Inside Bainbridge just posted this great article about Bonnie Dunbar, our featured speaker at the BSF Spring Breakfast this Friday,  May 10th at BPA. We hope to see you for breakfast this Friday May 10th at Bainbridge Performing Arts 8am-9:30am! There is a rush of adrenaline that Bainbridge High School Rocket Team members feel before every test launch.
By the time they load their 3-foot-long projectile onto the launch rail, they already have spent hours in the lab calculating the physics of the flight, running computer simulations and tweaking their design. The Bainbridge High School Rocket Team experienced many of those moments in its inaugural season this school year. Chee used a $2,000 grant from the Bainbridge Schools Foundation to buy materials for the rocket team and incorporate rocketry into his Advanced Placement physics class. The Bainbridge group was among more than 700 teams from 44 states registered for TARC this season. For this year’s competition, teams needed to launch a rocket to an altitude of 750 feet and drop it back to earth using a 15-inch parachute, all within 48 to 50 seconds. The team used the simulation software and more than 20 live test flights to fine-tune their rocket for the competition. The team’s final rocket design measures about 2.5 inches in diameter and stands 35 inches tall.
At a predetermined height, a small black powder charge detonates, detaching the rocket’s nose from the base. Each spring, TARC selects 100 teams for the national finals based on their scores in independently judged qualifying flights. All of this year’s rocket team members are seniors and the experience will stick with them as they move on to college. Carpenter was already an avid rocket hobbyist before helping start the team and will attend Embry-Riddle Aeronautical University. Shea will attend Duke University and said his experience on the rocket team could sway his choice of majors. Italian exchange student Ivan Gentile appreciated both the scientific and social aspects of the team. She has earned multiple awards and honors in her distinguished career, which of late has focused on the importance of science in the K-12 classroom.
Tickets must be reserved in advance and are $50 for adults and $25 for students, with proceeds going to BSF. About BSF: Bainbridge Schools Foundation works to support the school district’s vision and mission.

AMO and AYP are measurements defined by the United States federal Elementary and Secondary Education Act that allow the US Department of Education to determine how every public school and school district in the country is performing academically according to results on standardized tests.
Thumbing through the latest edition of The Spartan Standard, we came across the map of where our recently graduated high school class is going to be attending college — wow! Frankly, these are schools any parent having paid the $27,000 tuition at the prestigious Lakeside School in Seattle would be thrilled to have their child attend. In fact, due to the recent cuts in state funding, fees have multiplied in recent years as the Bainbridge Island School District has desperately tried to maintain a high quality of education for all its students. So here’s the catch: the Bainbridge Island School District is still wrestling with a funding crisis. Anyone who has done fundraising knows it is a terrifying thing to pledge funding before having the money in the bank. However, the message of the Bainbridge Schools Foundation to our community is this: We have long prided ourselves on the education we provide to our children.
And if you have never had the joy of seeing your child matriculate through this dedicated line of teachers, administrators and volunteers, we know you do appreciate the community they create. We are passionate about the mission of the Bainbridge Schools Foundation to support and enhance quality education.
Since yesterday afternoon’s update, another $5,035 has come in for donations and pledges!

However, I do believe that Bainbridge Island schools are indeed excellent as reflected in the continuous financial support of the community, the professionalism of its teachers and most importantly the achievements of its students. The Bainbridge Island community demonstrates its support year after year through its generous donations to the school district. There are recently hired teachers who are teaching for the first time on the island and the most senior have 40 years of teaching experience. Of the 224 teachers, three have doctorate’s degrees, 179 hold master’s degrees and 25 are nationally board certified. Many educators and parents agree that we are spending too much valuable time and precious funds on testing and in too many instances this preoccupation with test preparation and actual testing is at the expense of quality instructional time. However, with almost 90 percent of our high school’s graduating seniors going on to college or junior college the Bainbridge Island community can stand tall and be proud. Bainbridge, like many communities, also has a few individuals, although not actually teaching or involved in education, who nonetheless consider themselves experts in all matters of education. In the spirit of Patsy Collins, this award will go to teachers who create learning experiences that make a difference for kids and their community..
The team knows what should happen when the rocket lifts off, but there always is a twinge of uncertainty on launch day.
Physics teacher Enrique Chee organized the six-member squad last fall to compete in the national Team America Rocketry Challenge. He also purchased simulation software that allows students to model rocket flights in the classroom. Each year, TARC challenges teams to design, build and fly a rocket that will meet an extremely specific set of objectives.
As a twist, the rocket was required to carry a payload of one chicken egg, resting on its side. The Bainbridge team met the qualifying score for national competition during its trial flights in Sequim but missed the cut for the final 100. Though he’s launched larger rockets in other clubs, Carpenter said the tough standards of the TARC competition presented a different challenge. Dunbar served as a mission specialist and payload commander on five space shuttle missions from 1985 to 1998. Dunbar to Bainbridge Island, where she will address the importance of STEM in the classroom for encouraging today’s youth to reach for the stars in terms of their education and future careers,” said Vicky Marsing, BSF Executive Director.

The $650,000 maintains current class size and elective courses, and it keeps specialists like library, music, arts, PE, and counseling in our schools. We feel a sense of urgency and we hope you do too!  If One Dollar a Day is too much for your family, then give what you can.
Your support of the one dollar a day campaign last spring, Clickathon, One Call for All, and the Dinner Auction Gala allowed us to meet our $1M pledge to the school district.
