VCHS starting 1 to 1 next semester

With teachers at Vandalia Community High School completing training on the use of Chromebooks in their classroom, the local district will begin working with students on those laptops in the next semester.
Vandalia Superintendent of Schools Rich Well reported on Tuesday the status of the district’s use of Chromebooks in its new 1 to 1 program.
The district’s plan calls for students in all grades at VCHS to be using Chromebooks in the classroom and, eventually, to take the program into lower grades in the district.
Also at Tuesday’s meeting, the board approved the resignation of John Stout as head coach of the VCHS varsity football squad.
Stout coached the varsity Vandals in two stints, for four years early in his teaching career and for 13 years the second time.
Well said that Stout leads VCHS football coaches in playoff appearances, with seven.
“It has been a great experience,” Stout said in his letter to the district’s administration and school board.
Two board members, President Chris Palmer and Matt Hall, thanked Stout for his service as the varsity football coach.
Hall, who played football under Stout, said, “He has had a dramatic impact on my life. He’s a good coach and a good man.”
The board also approved the resignation of Joe Kelly as the VCHS golf coach.
In other action on Tuesday:
• The board approved four volunteer coaches – Bryan Hosick and Tammy Isaiah for high school girls basketball; and Alex Foster and Patrick Meyers for high school wrestling.
