"I'm quite honored to receive the award and it's awesome that my students would take time to recognize me like that", Golden Apple Recipient Tyler Brackey said.

Baker said it is not only work students must concern themselves with, but also play.

"We though just putting that one question out there would give us an idea how the community felt", said Hall.

All staff are required to wear visible IDs, Dietrich said, and at the secondary level all students are required to have them on their person. "At the elementary basis, (this time) is fairly crucial". "This is disastrous for the idea of collaboration". "Their immediate response is, 'Oh, you're a teacher, you got my vote'".

Otis Moses, a supervisor in the school district's meal services division, said day-to-day operations may differ from typical school days, but he said his team has pulled together to serve kids and support teachers through the walkout. I would rather my tax dollars help ensure the safety of children, who may already be or will one day be our children in schools, to have a trained professional rather than someone who spent four or more years in college to build the foundation for those children's future with a few weeks or months' worth of training. "But we're not really actively planning that right now". "Perhaps the office will call and ask to send a student home per a parent's request, perhaps there's a behavior or health issue of a student during the specialist time, and many other scenarios where interruptions can happen".

The bats are meant to be used only during a "hard lockdown situation", Mr. Hall said, and are locked up in the district's buildings and classrooms so they don't fall into the wrong hands.

The teachers might like them, but the bats have drawn ridicule on social media.

Hillsdale Middle School has an on site technology expert coach, using techniques from Dynamic Learning Project, that is giving teachers confidence to use technology in the classroom.

"It's not about the teachers - it's about the room".

"If you think of the concept of art, think lots of paint, dust and bits of materials", he said. But the Dills say it's worth it to stand up to legislators who have refused to properly fund schools. I want people to know that we're looking at everything. "We thought we were going to be working on that change together. You don't feel respected when this kind of operation goes on".

Allen said he hopes another funding measure can be passed this week, but even if schools don't see another dollar, he believes there is momentum that could impact the November elections.
