The same information will be shared at both sessions, just in different formats. Click here for further information.

Dr. Andy Pattee is pleased to announce a new assignment for the 2014-15 school year.  Kim Cross, the current Principal at Orchard Hill Elementary, will become the new Principal for Southdale Elementary.

Cross joined the Cedar Falls Schools as an administrator in 2001. She will assume her new role July 1.

“The district is very lucky, and excited, for Kim to make this move to Southdale. She has the experience and leadership abilities to be successful in this position,” said Dr. Andy Pattee, Cedar Falls Community School District Superintendent.

“I want to thank Dr. Pattee and the Board for this opportunity,” said Cross. “I am very excited and privileged to work with all of the great staff at Southdale and the wonderful, supportive parents.”

Cross has 14 years of teaching experience in Sacramento, California, and at Hansen Elementary.  She also has 16 years of administrative experience; she served for three years as principal in New Hartford, was co-principal with Deb Beving at Lincoln Elementary for six years and as principal of Orchard Hill Elementary since 2007.

She earned her Master’s Degree in 1988 and administration certificate in 1998 from University of Northern Iowa; and her Bachelor’s Degree in 1984 from Graceland University.

Cross and her husband, Chris Hansen, have two children at Holmes Junior High.

Dr. Andy Pattee is pleased to announce he will recommend Jason Wedgbury to the Board of Education as the new high school principal for Cedar Falls Schools.

Mr. Wedgbury joined the Cedar Falls School District in 2010 and is currently the principal at Peet Junior High.  He will assume his new role on July 1.

“Mr. Wedgbury is a strong member of our administrative team, and I have been impressed with his desire to continue the path towards fulfilling our vision, direction and goals of the high school.  His experience in, and a deep understanding of, district initiatives and knowledge of our community and community partners makes him the perfect candidate.  Mr. Wedgbury will have the opportunity to transition over the next several weeks, working closely with Dr. Powers, building administrators and staff at the high school,” said Dr. Pattee.

“I am thankful and excited for the opportunity to lead another outstanding faculty who has earned an excellent reputation.  The next few years will be exciting as Cedar Falls Schools continue to improve facilities and move toward an environment for 21st century learning,” said Mr. Wedgbury.

Mr. Wedgbury earned a Bachelor’s Degree from the University of Northern Iowa and a Master’s Degree from Northwest Missouri State University.  Prior to leading Peet Junior High, Mr. Wedgbury was an assistant principal and principal in Mason City, Iowa.

He and his wife, Tish, have three children at Southdale Elementary.




Digital Learning Initiative

The second semester at the High School will start the next phase of the district’s Digital Learning Initiative. The first phase involved providing Chromebooks at the elementary buildings in grades 3-6 at a 2:1 Chromebook to student ratio. The next phase is for each high student to have a Chromebook to use during the school day and have it available for them to use at home too.  With increased access to technology, students will have more opportunities to go beyond just consuming information to collaborating, creating, and sharing their learning with others.

Get more information on the district’s Digital Learning Initiative, from the website. Important information and dates for High School students and parents to be aware include:

  • Before students will be issued a Chromebook, there needs to be a signed Responsible Use Procedure submitted either electronically or paper version before January 10, 2014.
  • Students and parents should be familiar with information found within the Technology Handbook for Parents and Students
  • High School students will receive their Chromebook during the week of January 13.
  • More follow-up Information Sessions for parents will be announced and advertised after the students have their devices.

Secondary parents please note:  The bus schedule is different for a 90-minute inclement  weather delay than for a Monday late start (PLC) bus schedule.
