School board changes format of second monthly meeting

Updated Oct. 31, 2013 – The Stillwater Board of Education has decided to replace a number of its regular business meetings with public forums or workshops dealing with general education topics and specific school programs.

Generally, the board will continue to hold business meetings at 6:30 p.m. on the first or second Tuesday of each month in the middle/high school library, with the new forums slated for an evening later in each month.

By consolidating its routine business activity into a single monthly meeting, the board intends to create ongoing opportunities to consider important education issues and discuss school programs and practices. The board also hopes the new format will encourage more public participation in the dialogue.

“We want to develop forums that are rich in content and help foster relationships among board members, staff, parents and residents,” said Stillwater Board President Timothy Ryan. “With so much in the news about changes in education, such as the Common Core Standards, revised state tests, and so on, we hope that these forums will be helpful to the community.”

The first forum scheduled under this new model will be held at 6:30 p.m. on Tuesday, Oct. 22. The discussion will be focused on district goals for student achievement and the creation of a plan to achieve these goals. All residents are welcome.

Future forum topics and dates will be announced when they are finalized by the board.

Scheduled meeting dates for the remainder of the 2013-14 school year are as follows:
  • Tuesday, Oct. 22, 2013 (Board Workshop)
