WellnessBooksNew Wellness Books in CSI Library
I Miss You When I Blink : Essays by Mary Laura Philpott
Amazon says: "Mary Laura Philpott is relentlessly funny, self-effacing and charming as she tells the story of living as a triple-A-plus perfectionist. Everything in her life is done on time and exactly right, until, of course, it all starts to fall apart. In her willingness to tell her own story, she taps into a universal truth for so many women: We plan to do it all until we find we can't do anything anymore."

The Path Made Clear: Discovering Your Life's Direction and Purpose by Oprah Winfrey
Amazon says: " Everyone has a purpose. And, according to Oprah Winfrey, "Your real job in life is to figure out as soon as possible what that is, who you are meant to be, and begin to honor your calling in the best way possible." With introduction and quotes by Oprah, but this book is largely the wisdom of others.

Free to Focus: A Total Productivity System to Achieve More by Doing Less by Michael Hyatt
Amazon says: " Many professionals work as much as 70 hours a week, leaving little time for rest, exercise, family, and friends. Work is invading their personal life.
The common understanding of productivity has failed these professionals. Most think productivity is just about getting more done at a faster speed. But it's not."

Maybe You Should Talk to Someone: A Therapist, HER Therapist, and Our Lives Revealed by Lori Gottlieb
Amazon says: "Giving the reader a behind-the-scenes peek from both sides of the couch, it's a witty, relatable, moving homage to therapy-and just being human. While therapists are required to see a counselor themselves as part of their training, Gottlieb enlists an experienced ear when an unexpected breakup lays her flat. Working through her issues with the enigmatic "Wendell" helps Gottlieb process her pain, but it also hones her professional skills; after all, a good therapist possesses the ability to empathize with their patients (four of whom she chronicles in funny, frustrating, heartbreaking and profoundly inspiring detail). Like Gottlieb, you will see yourselves in them--in all their self-sabotaging, misunderstood, unlucky, and evolutionary glory.

The Moment of Lift: How Empowering Women Changes the World by Melinda Gates
Amazon quotes: "In her book, Melinda tells the stories of the inspiring people she's met through her work all over the world, digs into the data, and powerfully illustrates issues that need our attention-from child marriage to gender inequity in the workplace." - President Barack Obama

The Emotion Code: How to Release Your Trapped Emotions for Abundant Health, Love, and Happiness by Bradley Nelson
Amazon quotes: "I believe that the discoveries in this book can change our understanding of how we store emotional experiences and in so doing, change our lives. The Emotion Code has already changed many lives around the world, and it is my hope that millions more will be led to use this simple tool to heal themselves and their loved ones."-Tony Robbins

The College of Southern Idaho still has a limited number of spots available for CSI Junior Theater Camp which takes place July 15 - 17 from 1 - 5 p.m. in the CSI Fine Arts Center. Camp tuition is $65.

This three-day afternoon camp, a companion to the regular CSI Theatre Camp, is designed to introduce younger students (ages 6 through 9) to the world of theatre. No experience required! Campers will learn about concepts of drama through games and storytelling. They will learn the basics of what goes into a play -who does what, stage direction, how to express your emotions through performing, stage voice basics, and movement.

Camp Director Julie Nordstrom has loved theatre since she was 6 years old. She studied Theatre at the College of Southern Idaho and Boise State University. She is a certified teacher in Elementary Education and Drama and currently teaching drama to Kindergarten through 12th grade students in Shoshone. In addition to directing three productions a year for her school, she has directed community theatre projects for her own theatre company, Junction City Theatre in Shoshone and acted in last year's production of Anne Frank with Random Acts of Theatre. She is a passionate advocate for providing young people opportunities to find their voice through art education.

Governing Idaho's Public Education System

By Debbie Critchfield, President, Idaho State Board of Education

Five years ago, I was appointed to serve on the Idaho State Board of Education. I applied for the position because I care deeply about public education in Idaho. I've learned a lot during my time as a Board Member and want to share with you some insights about our system and how it operates.

The State Board of Education was created in the Idaho Constitution and charged with the "general supervision of the state educational institutions and public school system... ." Those "educational institutions" are our public colleges and universities and the public school system is comprised of 115 local school districts and more than 50 charter schools that serve over 300,000 students throughout our state. Yes, overseeing that system is a huge responsibility covering everything from kindergarten through graduate degrees. Idaho is one of only two states (Rhode Island is the other) that has one board overseeing all public education within its borders.

The State Board consists of eight members; seven are volunteers appointed by the Governor and confirmed by the Idaho Senate for five-year terms. The eighth member is the State Superintendent of Public Instruction - a statewide elected position. In addition to serving on the Board, State Superintendent Sherri Ybarra leads the State Department of Education, which supports our public elementary, and secondary (K-12) schools. The Department is not separate from the Board; it operates as the Board's executive agency for K-12 education. The Superintendent position was also established in the State Constitution, and Superintendent Ybarra votes on all Board matters including those involving our higher education institutions.

The Department has a staff of about 140 people who work closely with local school districts, superintendents and other administrators and teachers to implement policies and state-level standards in areas such as instructional standards and graduation requirements. The Department also distributes state and federal education funds to the districts, coordinates various statewide initiatives and programs and manages teacher certification. Matters involving district personnel and education-related materials are decided at the local level by locally elected school district trustees and administrators who are also in charge of day-to-day operations and classroom instruction.

The State Board's focus is on statewide policy, working with the Legislature and the Governor on development and implementation. A staff of just over 35 provide professional support to the Board, manage state scholarships and other programs, conduct research for decision makers, work with higher education institutions on everything from new degree programs to tuition and fee requests and help implement various student success initiatives. The staff work with elected officials, education stakeholder groups and other interested parties on a vast range of policy matters. The staff conduct policy analysis and prepare agenda materials for Board meetings, which often run 1,500 pages or more for each meeting. Each Board Member has honed his or her critical thinking skills, which are essential in order to absorb and make decisions based on this much material.

The State Board also serves as the Board of Regents for the University of Idaho and as the Board of Trustees for Idaho State University, Boise State University, Lewis-Clark State College, and the State Board for Career Technical Education. Idaho's four community colleges are each governed by their own separate board of trustees and are a growing part of our higher education system, that also operate in accordance with certain Board governing policies. The Board also oversees the Idaho Public Broadcasting System, the Division of Career Technical Education and the Division of Vocational Rehabilitation. Finally, the Public Charter School Commission also falls under Board governance.

We manage this responsibility through a system of standing committees. These committees are the workhorses of the Board where proposals and policy issues are discussed, vetted and refined before they are considered by the full Board. When the Board meets next week in Coeur d'Alene, we will review this structure and discuss if adjustments are needed to best support Board discussions and decision making.

The Board's Governing Policies provide the governing framework, which enables the Board to effectively oversee the entire public education system. I agree with former Board President Dr. Linda Clark who noted in an earlier column that "Idaho's consolidated governance model is the envy of many other states because it provides us with the ability to set policy, which impacts the entire education pipeline without having to navigate multiple layers of decisions-makers."

As Board President, I intend to reach out this next year and work with Idaho's elected officials, education stakeholders, parents, students and others. Idaho is doing many things well. Together, we can build on progress made and find ways to continue to improve our overall public education system. After all, our students are counting on us. 

If you have a question or an observation about public education in Idaho, send me an email at board@osbe.idaho.gov.

Partnering to Build Pathways to Careers

By Debbie Critchfield, President, Idaho State Board of Education

As the spouse of a fourth generation Idaho farmer, I know that finding a meaningful occupation is essential to well-being and happiness. Our state is growing fast, providing many opportunities in various career fields. The Idaho State Board of Education is partnering with Governor Brad Little's Workforce Development Council to create smoother career pathways through education.

It starts by encouraging Idahoans to continually strive for new knowledge and skills. "We need to generate a large body of life-long learners," said Trent Clark, Chairman of the Workforce Development Council. "Life-long learners are looking beyond tomorrow and continually preparing themselves for the next opportunity no matter where they are in their career."

"Employers want even their entry-level employees to have aspirations," said Jeff McCray, Council Member and Plant Manager at McCain Foods in Burley. "Employers aren't interested in employees who aren't on a career pathway." Employees with future plans tend to be more reliable and work harder and better, mastering duties and making a difference before moving up within the company or moving on to employment elsewhere.

Launching a career pathway starts by helping a student match their aptitudes and interests with a career and course study. In late July, the State Board will launch Idaho Career Information, a new program replacing the Career Information System. Idaho Career Information will be a dynamic online tool enabling students and adults to explore opportunities and start planning their career pathway. Idaho Career Information will be available on the Next Steps Idaho website, meaning students can use it in the classroom or at home with their parents. "Like the old system, Idaho Career Information will start with a personal skills assessment and interest exploration. It will then show students and adults how to take those skills and interests and apply them to related occupations," Program Coordinator Inessa Palnikov said.

In response to the Governor's Workforce Development Task Force recommendations to implement a single platform for career exploration and post secondary planning the Board and the Workforce Development Council are developing ways to expand the reach and the audience of the Next Steps Idaho website. Last year, we teamed up to create a social media campaign to raise awareness about Idaho's Adult Opportunity Scholarship intended to help working adults return to college or to a career technical program in order to earn a degree or a professional certificate. This scholarship is a tremendous resource available to both part-time and full-time adult students, who are working to improve their skills and job prospects, which is really what life-long learning is all about.

The Council and the Board are also exploring ways to grant college-level credit for various kinds of experience learned in the work place. This could include skills and experience gained while serving in the military, or through apprenticeships.

These are a few priorities where the State Board of Education and the Workforce Development Council are collaboratively focusing efforts. We will keep you posted as we work to connect current and future workers to state resources and worthwhile career pathways that benefit our citizens, our employers and our state.

President Trump Signs Disaster Declaration For Idaho
Declaration will provide some federal assistance for repairs to
public infrastructure damaged by spring flooding

BOISE - President Donald J. Trump signed a Presidential Disaster Declaration for five Idaho Counties, and the Nez Perce Tribe, for areas affected by severe storms, flooding, landslides, and mudslides from April 7 to April 13, 2019. The Presidential Disaster Declaration makes federal funding available to State, tribal, and eligible local governments, as well as certain private nonprofit organizations on a cost-sharing basis for emergency work and the repair or replacement of facilities damaged by the severe storms, flooding, landslides, and mudslides.

"The devastation caused by the late spring flooding in these areas was heartbreaking," Governor Brad Little said. "We are grateful President Trump recognized the breadth and scope of the damage, and that he will make federal funds available to begin repair work."

Adams, Idaho, Latah, Lewis, and Valley counties, and the Nez Perce Tribe are included in the Presidential Declaration.

IOEM Director Brad Richy said "These counties have been hit hard the last few years with repeated flood disasters. IOEM looks forward to continuing to working with FEMA and the local jurisdictions to help them get back on the road to recovery from these events."
"This money will be critical in helping to assist with infrastructure repairs," said Jerry Zumalt, Idaho County Disaster Management Coordinator. "The damage caused by the flooding, and mudslides cannot be overstated - it affects everything from school bus safety, to families getting to work, to commercial traffic that relies on these roadways. We are appreciative of Governor Little and the Idaho Office of Emergency Management for their efforts to secure this federal aid."

The Idaho Office of Emergency Management is a Division of the Idaho Military Division. The services we provide are to facilitate emergency management in Idaho, and to assist neighboring states. The women and men of this Division are dedicated to their mission of protecting the lives and property of the people of Idaho, as well as preserving the environmental and the economic health of Idaho.
