CBE - Pathways to post-secondary opportunity 

Brian Ondrashek, NICC Construction Instructor,presents to students in Mr. Ferrie and Mr. Lentz's class
One of the 10 characteristics of a Competency Based Education (CBE) system is where district provides smooth transitions within and beyond the PreK-12 experience.

A key indicator of this includes a system where reports and transcripts contain reliable evidence of student learning and information necessary for post-secondary institutions to admit and place students. PowerSchool, our student management system is one tool we use to assist with this.  Another indicator of this characteristic is open communication exists between levels within the district between the district and post-secondary providers that typically serve the district’s graduates. We are fortunate to have the partnership with NICC for Crestwood students to be able to pursue career pathways while earning both High School and College credit.

Highlights from the Howard-Winn / NICC partnership in fiscal year 2014-2015:

  • 143 Crestwood students took advantage of concurrent enrollment offerings at NICC
  • 1,325 college credits were earned by Crestwood students
  • $687,662 tuition cost for concurrent enrollment classes
  • $4,803 average savings per year for Crestwood students
An average student taking concurrent enrollment classes at NICC can save their family, on average, $9,000 - $10,000 on college before graduating high school.

Students involved in activities average fewer absences per year than the general student population. „ 

Participation in high school activities is a valuable part of the overall high school experience. „ 

Students who compete in high school activity programs achieve higher grades and have better attendance. „ 

School activities teach lessons that include citizenship, teamwork, motivation, cooperation and self-discipline. „ 

Those who participate in activity programs are less likely to have discipline referrals than the general student population.

Meet Mr. Dennler
What grade levels and subjects do you teach?
Biology - 10th
Anatomy - 11-12th
Environmental Science - NICC - 11-12th
Natural Resource Conservation - NICC - 11-12th

How many years have you been an educator? How many years at Howard-Winn?
Howard-Winn was my first teaching job 20 years ago.

Where did you attend college?
I graduated from Central College in Pella, IA with a BA in Biology. I got my Masters of Science in Science Education through Montana State in Bozeman, Montana.

Was there a particular event or person that inspired you to become an educator?
I always wanted to be a teacher and a coach. I originally planned on being a math teacher because of my high school geometry and calculus teacher, but switched to biology after my freshman year in college. I had a strong biology and anatomy teacher in high school and I grew up on a farm loving the outdoors so it just fit better.

What is your favorite thing about Howard-Winn? 
It feels like home. I have been here 20 years now and I enjoy the staff and students I work with everyday. We have good students to work with and we have the opportunity and encouragement to grow in our professional lives.

Any words of wisdom or advice?
Work hard everyday, even if you don't think anyone is watching you!

More about Mr. Dennler:
I like spending time with my wife Stephanie and daughter Ella. I love to travel, spend time outdoors with my family, hunting and fishing, and watching/coaching sports. It has been really enjoyable to share the state tournament with my wife and daughter the last two years.
