Introducing a New Integrated Math Pathway
We are excited to announce that earlier this week, the Board of Trustees adopted a new and exciting curriculum change in late middle school and high school mathematics that will positively affect all students in the district. This policy will change the way that mathematics is taught by introducing an integrated math course pathway beginning with “Math 1” in the fall of 2018. Subsequent coursework will be added over the next two years leading to multiple pathways in a student’s junior or senior year.
This letter was sent to our to our 7th & 8th-grade families: Integrated Math Pathway Parent Letter [58 KB/pdf]
Kindergarten Registration is Now Open!
Kindergarten registration is now open for the 2018-19 school year!
If your child will be five years old on or before September 1, 2018, they are eligible to start Kindergarten in September. We encourage you to register your child! First grade students, new to our district, are also welcome at this time.
We strongly encourage all families to register their little learners before May 8th to help our schools fully prepare for the new school year with accurate enrollment numbers.
HOW TO REGISTER: Simply drop by your neighborhood school during school hours. A late afternoon drop-in registration is available on Tuesday, May 8 until 6 pm.
Welcome to the class of 2030!
Partnering with our larger community is essential to the success of our students. Partnerships help to enhance classroom learning, improve academic outcomes, and connect and engage our larger community. Whether you wish to mentor a student in the perfect career, enhance a student's future with a love for reading, connect a student with a workplace skill they never knew they had, or just volunteer with kids — we've got an opportunity for you.
Adopt a Classroom: Help us create a passion for reading, building lifelong readers to improve students' futures.
Coeur d'Alene Connects: You can directly contribute to the development and success of our students and our community.
Volunteer in a School: The time and talents of our families and our community are at the heart of our district! Reading volunteers, classroom help, and playground volunteers are just a few of the open volunteer positions in our elementary schools.
Our district uses QPR (Question. Persuade. Refer.) Like CPR, QPR trains students, parents, friends, teachers, police, and neighbors as first responders — those who may be the first line of defense to offer hope and connect a loved one with the help they need.
Did you miss our last QPR training? We will be offering more classes and dates will be posted here when available.
Never considered such a training? We urge you to join us! Each participant receives a QPR booklet and card with information on suicide prevention, in addition to local resource information. QPR can be learned in our Gatekeeper course in as little as one hour. Learn how to ask a question that just might help save a life!
For more information, read about QPR in our schools, email email@example.com or call (208) 664-8241. For more information about the QPR Institute and suicide prevention gatekeeper training, visit www.qprinstitute.com.
