Every second Tuesday of the month our School District’s Regular Meeting of the Governing Board is held at 5:30pm.
We celebrated Student of the Month Awards and the fact that the Middle School received the Global Grid for Learning Grant (3 years – $150,000).
The Governing Board approved our new Districtwide Bullying/ Harassment/ Intimidation Handbook as well as Key Strategic Objectives and Key Strategic Measures.
This month I decided to take the opportunity to make a public comment at the end just prior to adjournment.
Dr. Paul and I spoke in Connecticut (at the National Indian Education Association Conference) about “A New Norm Beyond 8th Grade.” I see it coming because our students are now beginning to use their authentic voices – this leads to future success. There are many ways to measure the success of our students in addition to State Standardized Testing…except from Davina Lyons public comment to the SESD #18 Governing Board 2/12/19
My Truth is I serve as a teacher with a higher calling – to foster a growth mindset and resiliency in my students. They must be “game changers” for themselves, their families, and the overall community. It’s definitely heavy lifting, but I know at least one or two of them will be the spark that lights a path for many to follow long after I am gone.
I am blessed to be able to teach, inspire, and motivate my students to find, use, and elevate their authentic voices too!Momma Lyons
