If you received a copy of the Hub City Times last weekend, you may have read about a generous donation made by Jim Bokern, a recently retired High School Teacher, and his wife, Emily. To read the full article on the new Bokern Academic Leadership Fund under the Marshfield Education Foundation visit the Hub City Times. As reported earlier in District News, the Board of Education approved a Marshfield Education Foundation Field of Interest Agreement with the Marshfield Area Community Foundation in July of 2015. The purpose of the Education Foundation is to allow donors to designate funds for items that are not traditionally supported by the operational budget. This fund will promote and foster other types of educational endeavors in alignment with the District’s overall goals mission, and objectives. By donating through the Marshfield Area Community Foundation and not directly to the School District, donors are eligible for specific tax benefits. An oversight committee comprised of the Superintendent, Business Director, officer of the school board and a community member at-large will periodically review donations received to determine whether a contribution being offered is with the guidelines established. The guidelines support funding to meet one or more of the following objectives: innovation in the classroom, strategies that support best instructional practices, support for auxiliary education services, student financial support, professional leadership and recognition, academic enrichment, specific program support or facility support.

Michael Gui, son of Gaojun and Mingjun Gui, and a senior at Marshfield High School, earned a top composite score of 36 on a recent ACT test. Nationally, while the actual number of students earning a composite score of 36 varies from year to year, on average, less than one-tenth of 1 percent of students who take the ACT earns the top score. Among test takers in the high school graduating class of 2014, only 1,407 of nearly 1.85 million students earned a composite score of 36. The ACT consists of tests in English, mathematics, reading and science. Each test is scored on a scale of 1-36, and a student's composite score is the average of the four test scores. Some students also take ACT’s optional Writing Test, but the score for that test is reported separately and is not included within the ACT composite score. In a letter recognizing this exceptional achievement, ACT CEO Jon Whitmore said, “While test scores are just one of the many criteria that most colleges consider when making admission decisions, your exceptional ACT composite score should prove helpful as you pursue your education and career goals.” ACT test scores are accepted by all major U.S. colleges. Exceptional scores of 36 provide colleges with evidence of student readiness for the academic rigors that lie ahead.
