PRESS RELEASE: Jasper County Sheriff's Office


Summary of 2020-21 Snow/Inclement Weather Days (Revised 02-16-21)

posted Feb 16, 2021, 10:50 AM by Webmaster lynnville-sully

Summary of 2020-2021 Snow/Inclement Weather Days (missed 5 full days/2 delays)
  • Snow Day: January 25: Make-up Day - Friday, May 28 (Full Day)
  • Snow Day: January 26: Make-Up Day - Tuesday, June 1 (Full Day)
  • Snow Day: February 4 - Make-Up Day - Wednesday, June 2 (Full Day)
  • Snow Day: February 5: Make-Up Day - Thursday, June 3 (Full Day)
  • Snow Day: February 12: Make-Up Day - Friday, June 4 (1:00 pm early dismissal) - Last day of school for students
  • Two Hour Delays: Tuesday, February 9 and Tuesday, February 16
  • NOTE: February 15, originally scheduled as no school for Presidents’ Day, was then scheduled as a snow make-up day for January 25, then was cancelled due to inclement weather.  We do not need to make-up this day or count missed student contact hours.
  • Monday, June 7 - Teacher Work Day - Last of school for teachers
At this time, Lynnville-Sully will reevaluate how many make-up instructional hours will be held after the weather improves (sometime in March).  In past years, the school district has reduced the number of student hours because of the large number of snow-make-up days scheduled at the end of the school year.

February 16, 2021 Press Release from Grundmeyer Leader Services and the Lynnville-Sully Community School District

At the Monday, February 15, 2021 school board meeting, the Lynnville-Sully Community School District Board of Education unanimously approved Mr. Matthew Dunsbergen as new district superintendent.  

The school board and Grundmeyer Leader Services Consultants conducted semifinalist screening interviews on Thursday, January 28. 

Soon after the screening interviews three finalists were named:  Matthew Dunsbergen, John Howard, and Dr. Ken Howard.  The three finalists interviewed within the district on Friday, February 12. The formal interview day included a mixed interview team consisting of community members, parents, teachers, students, and support staff. Finalists also interviewed with administrators and the school board and got a district and community tour.

Each person involved as a member of an interview team provided the school board direct feedback about each of the finalists.  Based on the  feedback from the interview teams and tour guides, the Board chose to offer the job to Mr. Matt Dunsbergen.  The feedback clearly conveyed that Matt was the right choice based on his collaborative leadership style, passion for school improvement, student-centered leadership philosophy, understanding of open enrollment and excitement to engage in the larger community.  Board President Tammy Vos said, "We are very excited about what Matt offers our school district and community.  His commitment to our district and passion to the job is truly exciting for the future of Lynnville-Sully.”

 

Matt and his wife, Rochelle, have been married for nearly 17 years and have four children. Ethan, Jordan, Leah, and Micah, will be in eighth grade, seventh grade, fourth grade, and third grade, respectively, at Lynnville-Sully next school year. Matt enjoys coaching his children in various sports, running and exercising, spending time in the kitchen, and exploring in nature with his family. “I have such deep respect for the Lynnville-Sully CSD from my time as a student and teacher, and I am thrilled to return to serve the current students, staff and community. Thank you for giving me this opportunity and I look forward to working with you.”

Mr. Dunsbergen is currently an Elementary Principal at Ankeny CSD where he has served the past seven years.  Previously he served as Elementary Principal at Oskaloosa CSD, Elementary Teacher and Coach at Pella CSD, and Elementary Teacher and Coach at Lynnville-Sully CSD.  Mr. Dunsbergen is also a graduate of Lynnville-Sully CSD.  While at Ankeny, Mr. Dunsbergen was selected to open a new elementary school (current position). As an administrator, he has been very active with PBIS, Professional Learning Communities (PLCs), MTSS, Instructional Decision-Making model, and developing small group instructional strategies within the Reading Workshop Model.  Mr. Dunsbergen also is a member of the District Leadership Team, assisted in developing the District Strategic Plan, and regularly leads professional development.  References mentioned his integrity, sincerity, knowledge of research and pedagogy, and abilities as a communicator and systems thinker.

 

Matt earned his Bachelor of Science Degree in Elementary Education with a Math Concentration from Central College in 2001. His Master’s Degree in Educational Leadership came from Drake University in 2006. His Educational Specialist Degree was also earned at Drake University in 2011.

 

Mr. Dunsbergen will officially begin his duties on July 1, 2021.  However, he will be invited to transition with the district between now and July 1. Please welcome Matt and his family as the new superintendent of Lynnville-Sully.
