Recap: Oct. 22 Board Workshop

Nov. 1, 2013 – The Stillwater Board of Education hosted a workshop called, “Pathway to Student Improvement in Math and English Language Arts” on Oct. 22. This event is the first in a series of workshops focused on general education topics and specific school programs, which aligns with the board’s goals of increasing communication about student performance and educational programs.

At the workshop attendees discussed ways to measure student success, such as improving attendance and engagement among parents, and raising graduation rates and test scores. The elementary and middle school principals gave some background information and reviewed steps that the district has made to date to raise student proficiency levels in grades 3-8 math and English language arts. They also discussed additional interventions that the district could choose to implement in the near future.

“It’s important to note that everything we discussed in the first workshop is conceptual,” said Superintendent Stanley Maziejka. “No decisions have been made as to how we’re going to move forward with any of the interventions proposed. At this point we want to engage in a constructive conversation and sharing of ideas.”
