North High School – A Proud Heritage of Continuing Excellence!North High School has an award-winning counseling staff. North's counseling department received the Indiana Gold Star Counseling Award in November 2011 and the American School Counseling Award RAMP in summer of 2012.
In 2009, Mrs. Diana Nurrenbern, math teacher, received the Indiana PTSA Teacher of the Year Award. In 2010, Mr. John Skinner, principal, received the Indiana PTSA Principal of the Year Award and Mrs. Leslie Wilhelmus, English teacher, was a finalist for the PTSA Teacher of the Year Award. In 2011, Mrs. Abigail Whicker, German teacher, and Mrs. Leslie Wilhelmus were first and second runners up for the Evansville Courier and Press Teacher of the Year Award.
In 2011, North's master teacher schedule was built to allow each core content area PLC to have the same planning period off on even days and each SLC team to have the same planning period off on odd days. As a result, North is seeing increasing fidelity of implementation of PLC work with curriculum and SLC work on relationships and school culture.
North has experienced a decrease in expulsions, suspensions, and discipline referrals. There has also been an increase in assessment results in state testing in both ELA and Math. Every year the Evansville Vanderburgh School Corporation gives a climate survey to students, parents, and faculty, and each year there has been a positive increase in North's survey results concerning relationships between student to student, student to staff, and staff to staff.
North's future improvement goals are based on its School Improvement Plan and the work of its PLCs and SLCs. PLC goals are to be more purposeful in its differentiated instruction based on classroom data and to continue to increase data based decisions. SLC goals are decrease in number of referrals, increase strength of student relationships with teachers, and increase graduation rate.
North is in its sixth year of participation in the Healthy School Initiative. North received recognition as a Hoosier Healthy School for the past five years and while the state is not giving awards this year, North is continuing its established healthy initiatives and its student wellness awareness team.
North has had 100% faculty participation in the PTSA for the past four years.
In the fall of 2012, North received an Indiana Department of Education Accountability Report Card grade of a B. North was one of two high schools in the EVSC to receive an accountability grade above a C.
North increased its graduation rate: North's Class of 2009 had 76.4% students graduate, the Class of 2010 had 84% students graduate, the Class of 2011 had 80.5% students graduate, and the projected graduation rate for the Class of 2012 is 84%.
North increased its Indiana standardized test scores on both the English 10 ECA and the Algebra I ECA. English 10 ECA scores in 2009-10were 56.3%, 2010-11 were 67.3%, and 2011-12 were 70.8%. Algebra I scores in 2009-10 were 66.2%, 2010-11 were 73.6%, and 2011-2012 were 80.1%. From 2009-2012 the number of students receiving college credit through dual credit courses increased from 266 to 326. The number of credit hours earned increased from 1916 to 2124 hours. There are currently 28 dual credit courses offered through local universities.

All of the EVSC’s DELL netbooks include accidental damage and extended warranty coverage beginning the 2012-13 school year. Parents will not be billed for repair costs due to accidental spills or drops. Because the coverage does not include lost or stolen netbooks, parents should consider insuring their student’s netbook for loss or theft.
Insurance options may be available through an individual homeowner policy or other insurance companies. One option available for students, faculty and staff, is Student Insurance Partners. This company provides laptop/tablet insurance which covers replacement cost and protects the laptop worldwide.

The Healthy Hoosier School Award was developed by Indiana Action for Healthy Kids. The Award honors Indiana schools that have policies and educational programs in place to promote good nutrition and increased physical activity among their students. Beth Foland, a Registered Dietitian with the Indiana Department of Education and Indiana Action for Healthy Kids liaison said, “We are extremely pleased with this year’s results. The application process itself requires committed leadership, so for 66 schools to receive awards represents a significant trend. We applaud these schools for placing a high priority on teaching children healthy habits that will last a lifetime".

FAR System to Help EVSC Recover Funds More EfficientlyThe Evansville Vanderburgh School Corporation has elected to use an outside company to recover returned checks that have been used to pay for school lunches. No longer will the district or school staff arrange for the repayment of checks returned for non-sufficient funds. The Federal Automated Recovery Systems (FARS) will now be responsible for the electronic collection of non-sufficient funds checks turned in to any school or district account.
The EVSC will gladly accept your checks. When you provide a check as payment, you authorize the EVSC to either use information from the check to make a one-time electronic fund transfer from your account or to process the payment as a check transaction. You also are authorizing FARS to collect a $20 fee through an electronic fund transfer from your account if your payment is returned unpaid.
If you have any questions about this system, please email EVSC Director of Food and Nutrition the Office of Food and Nutrition at 435-8258.
