Education

 

 

 


The CAL Community School District, located just south of Latimer and north Highway 3, serves the communities of Coulter, Alexander, and Latimer as well as the surrounding 117 square miles (300 km2) of agricultural farmland in Franklin County. The 2009-10 certified enrollment, counted October 1, 2009 was 274 students in grades K-12. The district also supports a prekindergarten program that enrolls nearly 100% of eligible three and four year olds for the past 25 years.

CAL Community School has been recognized many times over the years for its outstanding educational programs. In 1979 researchers from Boston University wrote an article based on their studies entitled "CAL Community School-Small, Rural, and Good!" that appeared in the April issue of the Phi Delta Kappa. In 1985-86, CAL received the Governor's Partnership in Education Award. In 1986-87, CAL High School was one of 256 schools nationwide to receive the United States Department of Education's Secondary Schools Recognition Award. In 1987-88, Secretary of Education William Bennett included CAL High School as one of seven exemplary high schools in his book, James Madison High School.

In 1991-92, the CAL Elementary School was one of 250 schools nationwide to receive the United States Department of Education Elementary Blue Ribbon School Award. In 2000-01, the CAL High School was recognized as a United States Department of Education Secondary Blue Ribbon School. In May 2001, TIME Magazine recognized CAL Community School when it named it Runner Up Elementary School in TIME's "Schools of the Year." TIME Magazine recognized CAL for using high school students to assist elementary students, pooling their knowledge with a neighboring district, moving ahead with a building expansion program, and using private donations and a federal construction grant to pay for facility improvements.

In 1998-99, the CAL and Dows Community School Districts entered into a two-way whole grade sharing agreement that lasted for the next seven years. During that time, both districts maintained separate elementary schools, the middle school (6-8) was at Dows, and the high school was at CAL. In 2005-06, the agreement ended after Dows entered into a new whole grade sharing agreement with Clarion-Goldfield. At that time, CAL Community School re-established its complete P/K-12 program.

The CAL facility has been well maintained and has undergone renovations in recent years. In 1986, a new gymnasium wing of the building was built replacing a portion of the building that was destroyed by a fire. In 2001, renovations were completed that included a six-classroom addition, new preschool room, renovated library media center and office space for Title I, Reading Recovery, and other programs. Recently, renovations were completed that included building a new chemistry/physics lab, converting the old lab into an art classroom, renovating the industrial arts/vocational agriculture area of the building, and other improvements such as restroom renovations, new flooring in the cafeteria, roof repairs, among others. In 2006 the new Cub Cadet Childcare Center was built on the CAL school grounds. In 2009, a new playground was completed in the school grounds. CAL has a history of maintaining excellent facilities.

CAL has many extracurricular activities as well, including a rich tradition of girls basketball. Franklin Consolidated (now CAL) was the State Consolation Champions in 19--. The program has now completed its fourth straight winning season with a record of 17-5 in the 2009-10 season. CAL also has rich traditions of success in track and softball.
