    Char-Em buses receive 100 percent rating – again – in recent inspection

    School children riding Charlevoix-Emmet Intermediate School District buses and their families can feel confident that the fleet has received the highest safety ratings as determined by the Michigan State Police. “Our staff is razor-focused on child safety relative to their transportation needs, and we are very proud to have received another 100 percent passing inspection certificate from Michigan State Police inspectors,” said Phil Haldaman, the ISD’s Transportation Coordinator. “Our dedicated staff and mechanics deserve much credit for this effort.”

    Haldaman noted that earning a 100 percent safety rating is a significant accomplishment, and this marks the ISD’s sixth year in a row of hitting the highest bar. “When parents access their respective school district’s bus fleet information online and they scroll down to Char-Em’s stats, they’ll be pleased to see a nice legacy of safety with our fleet,” he added.

    Char-Em ISD's Preparedness and Response Plans

    Pursuant to Executive Order 2020-142, Char-Em ISD has developed the following Preparedness & Response Plans for the 2020-2021 school year:

    Early On receives funding for supplies to support families

    Char-Em ISD Early On services received $8,000 in GEER (Governor’s Emergency Education Relief) funding to purchase technology, equipment and materials in an effort to support families accessing Early On services remotely. Early On Coordinator Nicole Lindwall stated, “These materials will support the developmental growth of our 0-3 students as they access services virtually. Parents can work on strategies hands-free with the use of the tripods and iPad stands, while being coached by Early On staff via Zoom or Facetime. The manipulatives and materials delivered to students allows for multiple opportunities to address all areas of development.” Read the complete media release

    Professional Learning announcement for 2021 sessions

    Char-Em ISD remains committed to providing meaningful professional learning opportunities for educators across Charlevoix, Emmet and northern Antrim counties as we approach the second half of the 2020-21 school year. In response to the continuing unknowns regarding the pandemic, CEISD is planning to offer all workshops and professional learning opportunities in an online format through Spring Break. We will evaluate how to deliver April, May and June 2021 professional learning closer to that timeframe.

    Char-Em’s learning opportunities will include those needed to maintain certifications required by state and federal mandates/law. Whenever possible, we will offer continuing education credits in conjunction with these opportunities. Read the complete Professional Learning announcement, access the calendar
