    Staff photo of Superintendent Cook. “Welcome to Coeur d'Alene Public Schools!” I have both heard that statement from many and expressed that sentiment to many in my new role as Superintendent of CdA Schools. I am very humbled, honored, and excited to be a part of this amazing school district!

    Let my first act as the Superintendent of CdA Schools be officially welcoming you and your student to our district. We aim to provide an amazing, fulfilling, and relevant education for your student – one that prepares your student for whatever path they choose, and one that does so on a level that makes them highly competitive in a world-wide job market! At CdA Schools, we value challenging and enriching educational experiences, one that every student feels true ownership of, and one where every family feels proud of their student’s success.

    I am committed to three things: A deep and intentional focus on a coherent learning experience for all students; high expectations for all; and to educating the whole child to prepare them to participate and lead in a society that has enormous expectations waiting for our students. Whether your student seeks to one day be challenged in career and technical education, advanced placement coursework, or both – please look to take advantage of all that we can provide to meet your student’s needs and expectations. 

    As we continue to build upon this learning community, please partner with us to support all of our students as we endeavor to provide every child with opportunities to enrich their learning and create life-changing impact. By working together, we can create a world full of opportunities for our kids. 

    I have much to learn about the Coeur d'Alene Community and I am excited to have started that process, so feel welcomed to help me with that journey by reaching out!  Please do not hesitate to contact me here at the school district office!

     

    With much gratitude,

    Dr. Steven Cook

    School Meal Program Changes - 5 Schools

    Starting this school year, the Coeur d’Alene School District is making changes to the meal programs at five schools: Borah, Bryan, Fernan STEM, Venture and Winton. Previously, each of these schools had breakfast and/or lunch at NO CHARGE.
    1. Students who qualify for free meals will continue to receive breakfast/lunch at NO CHARGE.
    2. Students who qualify for reduced-priced meals will pay the reduced rate for breakfast/lunch.
    3. Changes vary by school. Please visit your school website for details specific to your school meal program.
    To receive free or reduced-price meals, families need to fill out an application at the start of each school year. To see the income eligibility for free/reduced-price meals, and to download an application, go to www.cdaschools.org/mealapp.
    1. All other students will pay the same rate as students at other schools in the district for breakfast/lunch.
     
    Why are we making this change?
    These schools previously were eligible for the federal Community Eligibility Program, which allows all students to eat breakfast/lunch at no charge. This year, with the improving economy, the number of students who qualify for free meals has declined. The Board of Trustees for the School District voted Aug. 6 to convert the CEP program at these schools to match the meal program at other schools in the district.
     
    Questions?
    Please contact our Nutrition Services Department with any questions or concerns about our meal program. Call (208) 667-7469. The office is located at 1242 E. Best Ave. and is open 7 a.m. to 3 p.m. Monday through Friday.

    Boundary Letter - August 2018

     

    Jennifer Brumley named Trustee for Zone 4

    Jennifer Brumley

    The Board of Trustees for Coeur d'Alene Public Schools voted Tuesday to appoint Jennifer Brumley to fill the vacancy for the Zone 4 seat on the school board.

    Brumley will serve the balance of the term of Dave Eubanks, who stepped down from the board in July. She was one of three applicants for the position interviewed by the Trustees during a special board meeting Tuesday evening.

    “All three were very strong candidates for this position,” Board Chairman Casey Morrisroe said. “Jennifer Brumley demonstrated a keen understanding of the role of Trustees and broad knowledge of our community and school system. She will serve our families, students and school staff well.”

    Brumley said her top three objectives as Trustee will be to develop and adopt a 10-year plan for land acquisition to build another elementary school as well as new middle and high schools; to plan and implement bonds to have the funding necessary to build schools and develop the needed infrastructure for those schools over the next 10 years; and to develop a strategy to increase test scores on the state assessments and the SAT.

    “I believe in serving the community that has served me so well,” Brumley said. “I want to give back to a school district that has enhanced my life and is an integral part and foundation of my children’s education.”

    Brumley is a family law attorney and partner with Amendola Doty & Brumley, PLLC. She graduated from the University of Idaho in 1996 with a Bachelor of Science degree in communications and a teaching certificate in speech and journalism. She earned her law degree in 1998 from the University of Idaho School of Law.

    She serves on the Coeur d’Alene Charter Academy board of directors and the Coeur d’Alene Symphony Orchestra board, and is president-elect of Coeur d’Alene Sunrise Rotary. Brumley also has served on the Long Range Planning Committee for the Coeur d’Alene School Board.

    Brumley’s father was a school administrator and her mother was a health teacher in the Coeur d’Alene district. She graduated from Coeur d’Alene High School in 1992. She is married and has two children enrolled in the district.
