What’s Best for Students
Coos Bay Schools Facilities Focus Group Rescheduling Saturday’s Workshop
In an effort to engage the highest number of parents, community and staff members, the Coos Bay Schools Facilities Focus Group has rescheduled this Saturday’s workshop “What’s Best for Students” to Saturday, January 25th at 9:00 AM at Marshfield High School in the Library.
While safety, roofs and heating are among the critical components of our schools, “What’s Best for Students” will largely address Coos Bay Public Schools’ grade configurations. Community members and District staff will have the opportunity to share their opinions on how Coos Bay grade configurations can support student achievement.
We will look at other models across the state and nation and work in small-group settings. Our goal for the day is to develop tangible solutions the District can further explore and then apply to our school buildings. Please let us know if you would like to be involved so we can include everyone in this critical discussion about the future of our children and community.
A complimentary lunch will be provided. Please RSVP to Peggy Ahlgrim at (541)267-1310 or email@example.com if you plan on attending. For more information, go to www.cbd9.net or contact Ariann Lyons @ firstname.lastname@example.org
Coos Bay Public Schools is beginning the review process of human sexuality education courses and invites interested parents, teachers, school administrators, community representatives and persons from the medical community to review the current curriculum content. You can review the policy at the following link:
The curriculum will be available for review December 2nd – 20th at Milner Crest Education Center, 1255 Hemlock Ave. during regular business hours. A committee will be created to review the curriculum content in accordance with new scientific information and effective education strategies. They will be meeting the 2nd week of January.
There are two ways you can be involved – stop by to review the curriculum and list your suggestions and/or volunteer to be on the committee that takes those suggestions and evaluates the content of the curriculum.
