Teacher and Program Recognized

Matthew Eddy, agriculture instructor and FFA advisor at Southeast Polk High School will be recognized for having the 2012 Outstanding Middle/Secondary School Ag Ed Program at the Iowa Agricultural Education Summer Conference in June.

This award distinguishes Iowa Association of Agricultural Educators (IAAE) members who are at the pinnacle of their profession and who are conducting the highest quality agricultural education program.  This award recognizes agricultural education programs for their overall success, growth, and motivation. Outstanding agricultural education programs have educators who are innovators and catalysts for student success in agricultural education. 

Southeast Polk leads the nation in the adoption and implementation of the CASE – Curriculum for Agriculture Science Education – course work emphasizing student centered STEM based Agricultural concepts. This includes the $25,000 science lab addition to the Ag Department and securing donations of over $15,000 for equipment from groups like the Polk County Farm Bureau and the Farmers Co-op.

The Southeast Polk FFA program was also the largest chapter in the state of Iowa in 2011 and has been on the rise since the early 1990’s. 

Eddy currently blogs for the National Association of Agriculture Educators (NAAE) in the “Day in the Life of an Ag Teacher” blog and has written several pieces for the USAToday Education blog.


Sports Physicals Update

In the past, Southeast Polk has offered free athletic physicals to students due to the generosity of medical professionals who volunteered their time to the program.  Unfortunately, we are unable to offer these services for the 2012-13 school year.

Options for free athletic physicals:  Central Place offers free medical care provided by a pediatric nurse practitioner from Blank Children’s Hospital. Call Central Place, 266-6795.

As always, your family physician is your best place for continued care of your child.


Take a Look at Leading High Schools

The district will embark on a comprehensive study of our high school in the months to come. To prepare, staff is taking a look at exemplary high schools in our state and nation. View the US News Education Report and see what the country’s best schools are doing to raise student achievement.
