CAPE welcomes all staff to the 2014-2015 school year! During the past several weeks, staff have been working to organize new learning “neighborhoods,” set up classrooms, write new curriculum, set up student schedules, welcome new students to the district, and clean district buildings. Here’s to a great school year for everyone!
Where are the smartest kids in the world, and how did they get that way?? Many studies show American students lagging behind their counterparts in both developed and undeveloped nations. Nearly everyone is worried, but a consensus needs to emerge on what needs to be done to regain competitiveness. Year-round education? More technology? Better teachers? Better parents?
On Thursday February 6, from 7 to 8:30 p.m., CAPE is hosting a forum at the Lake Mills High School to look at the research and discuss how we can make our kids the smartest in the world.
We’ll begin with a keynote presentation, The One Best Way to Improve Education, by Carolyn Kelley, Associate Professor, Department Chair of Educational Leadership at the University of Wisconsin, Madison. Next, a community panel featuring a school administrator, teacher, parent and a recent Lake Mills High School graduate will respond to audience questions.
