Those slowdowns on the Viaduct for the next week (which SPS said may slow some bus routes)? Apparently it's for the sequel to Fifty Shades of Gray.
Pasco School District had a "High School Reimagining Forum" this week about the 24-credit graduation requirement. Good for Pasco.
Because of these looming changes, the Pasco School District is taking a proactive approach as they develop plans for the district’s secondary schools to meet the college and career ready state requirements and reimagine educational programs for the 21st century.Speaking of high school graduation requirements, Virginia just passed a law to help kids who aren't going to college succeed after graduation.
Each high school invited a cross-section of representatives to attend this forum to ensure broad stakeholder input. A second forum will be held in Spanish on June 15 at the same time and location.
The feedback gathered at this forum will be used by a steering committee comprised of 33 community members, students, parents, secondary-level staff and local business partners.
The late state Sen. John C. Miller (D), who sponsored the legislation, had envisioned that high school students would have a choice in their junior and senior years. Either they could go down a track that would lead to post-secondary education, or they could work toward earning credit for internships, apprenticeships or industry certification.Tom Redman in Communications for Facilities and Capital was kind enough to update the earthquake safety building list for seismic upgrades. By my count, it's every school in the district that has or will have work for earthquake safety. I think he may be sending this to the City so they'll have it in their records.
“Rather than sitting in an algebra 3 class where they can’t see any relevance to what they want to do in the future, they will be able to take courses that best prepare them for their career choice,” Miller said in February.
