Happy New Year and Welcome Back to School!

Additionally, Coos Bay Schools have been asked to take part in a statewide conference on student-centered teaching and learning. The district has been working for several years to bring this effective research-based strategy to our classrooms.

Putting Student Safety First! Coos Bay Schools have been busy preparing for a safe, successful and healthy 2016 for our students, staff and community. Our schools are training staff for emergency response including active shooter responses. Parents will hear more about this as we move on to the next step and include student training in the coming weeks. All schools plan to have active shooter drills prior to the end of the year. For more information on building safety and emergency response please contact our Facilities manager, Rick Roberts at firstname.lastname@example.org or 541-267-1233.
Getting Involved! Parents as partners help us provide an exceptional education for our students. There are many ways to get involved with your child’s classroom and school. Volunteers are always welcome and needed (http://cbd9.net/human-resources/volunteers). Input to Site Councils as schools work on improvement goals, design professional development and work to engage more families in our budget process each January helps us all work better together Your voice is extremely important as we build our vision for the future at Community Facilities meetings (for schedule Site Council and Facilities meetings – http://cbd9.net/public-meetings-schedule). Membership in the Superintendent Advisory Team helps our district to make policy and program decisions and improve parent involvement at all levels (http://cbd9.net/superintendents-advisory-team).
A Facebook account has been created for the district to share school events and activities with parents, students and community members. “Like us on Facebook” at www.facebook.com/CoosBaySchoolDistrict
