JrTheaterCampCSI Junior Theater Camp
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.

Students can obtain registration forms and more information at the CSI Fine Arts Center, by going online to www.csi.edu/theatrecamp.

The camp features an impressive guest faculty of professional dancers and dance instructors from all over the country who bring a wealth of talent and knowledge to assure each student achieves their highest potential. At the end of the day, all the hard work is offset with fun and exciting downtime activities such as game night, movies, a canyon excursion, swimming parties, a fashion show, an ice cream social, a pizza and autograph party, barbecues, a carnival, a pampering night, and an end of camp recital for family and friends. Well-chaperoned dormitory housing and meals are available.

BOARD APPROVES PLAN TO AWARD COLLEGE CREDIT FOR PRIOR LEARNING/MILITARY EXPERIENCE

The Idaho State Board of Education today approved a policy making it easier for students to transfer college credit earned for prior learning including military and other work-based experience.

The policy guarantees military veterans and adult learners can transfer experienced-based general education college credit awarded by one Idaho institution, to another without question. The policy takes effect immediately.

"We've been working on this for six months and expect it to be the first of a series of system-wide measures the Board will be considering to align policies to improve student success, completion time, and also reduce costs." Board President Debbie Critchfield said.

Other Board actions include:
  • Approved FY2021 Strategic Plans for Idaho colleges and universities, Idaho Public Television, the Division of Career Technical Education and the Division of Vocational Rehabilitation.
  • Approved a list of a dozen education-related legislative proposals for consideration by Governor Brad Little.
  • Approved contracts for Boise State Women's Head Basketball Coach Gordon Presnell and for Idaho State University Men's Head Basketball Coach Ryan Looney.
  • Approved a $8.37 million contract renaming the basketball facility at Boise State University "ExtraMile Arena." The term of the agreement is 15 years.
  • Approved tailgating permits for all three universities for the for the 2019 football season.
The Board meeting was held June 19-20 at North Idaho College in Coeur d'Alene.
