The Dieterich Unit 30 School Board has approved two insurance plans for the District. The Board voted to renew the catastrophic insurance plan through AIG Benefit Solutions. The policy is required for the district and covers all sporting and school activities. The Board also agreed to offer voluntary student accident insurance through Guarantee Trust Life. Participation in this is voluntary, and is purchased by the parent of the student.
In other action the Dieterich School Board approved the District’s renewal in the Association of Illinois Rural and Small Schools. This membership allows the district to access grant dollars. The association also advocates for small and rural schools in the state.
The Board also amended the 2015-2016 school calendar to reflect the use of an emergency day on February 24th. The final day of student attendance will now be May 18th with a teacher institute on May 19th. High School Graduation will remain on Sunday, May 15th at 1:00pm.
