"The answers become clear when we ask the right question about each and every child."
-John Merrow ( Addicted to Reform )
LET'S TALK ABOUT ESSA, NEXT GEN LEARNING STANDARDS, EQUITY, AND OF COURSE, TESTING
REGENT JUDITH JOHNSON WILL DISCUSS these issues and more at WPSBA's upcoming Breakfast and Conversation on October 17th. The time is right to share your thoughts on these developing issues. Ask your district clerk to sign you up (and bring along your school board and superintendent colleagues.)

SOMERS CSD IS INCREASING AWARENESS through programs, speakers, vape detectors, staff training, conferences, and more. The district is taking the initiative to address these issues with the help of community groups and a new grant. Programs like this benefit the community at large.
