Summer driver education meeting

There will be a driver education parent meeting at 5:30 p.m., on Monday, April 9, in the middle school auditorium. This will be an opportunity for the driver education instructors to briefly explain the summer program and to answer questions you may have about the summer program. We understand that getting your child to and from both class and driving times can be challenging during the summer. With this in mind, we encourage you to talk with each other at the conclusion of this meeting to arrange transportation during the summer to and from class and driving times. The meeting will last no longer than 30 minutes.
If you have any questions about the program, please e-mail Roger Thompson at rthompson@solon.k12.ia.us or Dale Jedlicka at djedlicka@solon.k12.ia.us. You can also contact us by phone at 319-624-3401, ext. 1321 or ext. 1333. They hope to see you there.

SIAC sponsored forum on standard based grading
The Solon Community School District 2011-2012 study states, “SCSD stakeholders will analyze and study aspects of standards-based grading and reporting at all grade levels.” Teachers, students and administrators presented their experiences implementing and learning through standards-based grading at the Dec. 8, 2011 School Improvement Advisory Committee (SIAC) meeting. A similar presentation was given at the Feb. 6, board of education work session. Parents and community members are invited to a SIAC-sponsored forum on standards-based grading, Tuesday, April 3, at 6:30 p.m. in the high school media center. The forum will provide additional information about the district study as well as an opportunity for administrators, teachers and students to answer questions posed by those in attendance. Questions about the district study and/or parent/community forum may be directed to Matt Townsley, director of instruction, 319-624-3401, ext. 1352, mtownsley@solon.k12.ia.us.
