The Oregon State Board of Education has announced that they will hold their January board meeting at the Tillamook School District offices in the morning on January 17, 2019. State board members will then spend the afternoon learning about programs and opportunities that are offered to Tillamook School District students.
Every year the state board tries to hold one of its regular board meetings in a community outside of Salem. They choose a school district that has demonstrated progressive, innovative and effective work. Deputy State School Superintendent Colt Gill reached out to Tillamook specifically because of the district-wide work that has been done around trauma informed care, the great community partnerships and Tillamook natural resource programs that are recognized across the state.
Randy Schild, Superintendent of Tillamook School District said, “We are thrilled to have the state board come to Tillamook to see the programs and meet the people who are making a difference in the lives of our students.” He went on to say, “It’s a great honor to have the board select Tillamook as the one district in the state that they will get to experience this year.”
In the last two years, Tillamook School District has had two visits from Oregon’s Governor, Kate Brown, who came to see the work that has been done with trauma informed care, and the district’s seismic rehabilitation of the Liberty Elementary School gym. These, and the state board visit, bring focus to district programs and the work that is being done in Tillamook.
The State Board meeting will take place from 9:00 – 11:30 a.m. on January 17, 2019, in the board room at the Tillamook School District Administration Offices, 2510 First Street, Tillamook. The public is welcome to attend.
