The city invites all interested citizens and business owners to attend the public workshop and take part in the decisions that will shape the future Noblesville. There will be brainstorming for future programs, public improvements, and policies through a series of small group exercises. Participants' ideas will then be shared with the larger group. Ideas will then help shape the plan that will serve as a guide for the city as it continues to grow.
The first workshop was "Where Are We Now?" took place on March 28th and identified strength, weaknesses, opportunities, and threats that the Comp Plan must address.
Congratulations to Westfield Washington Schools for being the Number 5 best large companies in Central Indiana to work.
The school system has nine school, 6,200 students and 832 employees, naming it the largest employer in Westfield.
Dr. Mark Keen has been the superintendent of the school system since 1997, when there were only four school in the system and a couple of thousand students.
Mr. Keen credits the school system quality for selecting staff members that are focused on students and not themselves which creates a common interest of working together. He also shared that the philosophy is that the teachers shouldn't be told how to run their classrooms. They're given an expected outcome and allowed to work with others to achieve it.
Two years ago Westfield opened a health and wellness clinic at the middle school. Employees do not pay a copay or deductible and can have some of the prescriptions filled for free. In 2005, the school system opened a fee-based child-care program to retain young staff members.
We are proud of Westfield Washington Schools for their service to the community and for the recognition to the quality of their program.
