UPDATE ON K-12 MAGNET SCHOOL PLANNING

  • After careful consideration of the District’s financial outlook and enrollment projections for the coming year, it has become clear we will not be able to open The new K-12 Magnet School for 2021-22. We are helping enrolled students and families prepare to attend their previously enrolled schools (or schools for which they are zoned to attend) in the district next fall, and to address any questions or concerns about the process.

    We will continue to plan for and build The Magnet School with the goal of launching it for the 2022-23 school year. Principal Bryan Kelly will remain in his position next year to lead that work with our District Administration team. Their charge will be to secure ongoing funding, locate a suitable school facility, regroup as a teaching staff, further develop the magnet focus, and build enrollment for the following school year. We hope many of the families who have supported this effort will continue to have an interest in being part of our new school community when we have a solid foundation to launch it.

    We believe in the promise of the K-12 Magnet School for our students and our community, and we want to do all we can to make it a reality in partnership with the students and families it will serve.

    Thank you!

    Agents of Change - Our students are agents of change who improve our community, develop high level competencies, and make a difference in their world. 

    We recognize that, in order for students to be equipped for their lives and futures, they need a system that puts learners at the center. Students need a system that starts with two guiding questions:

    What should Coeur d’Alene School District students know and be able to do?

    How can we create a system that will get them there?

    Graduates Who are Prepared - Our students develop the following competencies and dispositions described in our PORTRAIT OF A GRADUATE (6 C's)

    1. We support the well-being of our students by nurturing and developing the heart, body and mind of each student.

    2. Students will have voice and choice in their learning, and learning experiences will foster creativity, curiosity, and innovation.

    3. Students will engage in academic conversations with one another to understand varying perspectives to make meaning of their learning.

    4. Students will take ownership of their own learning by setting goals, self-assessing their progress towards their goals, and reflecting on their academic growth.

    5. Students will provide feedback to one another as well as honestly assess themselves.

    6. Students will engage in project-based learning opportunities that are cross-curricular and designed to cultivate students’ understanding and agency.

    7. Students will engage in service learning projects that combine learning objectives with community service to create positive change in our city and world.

    8. Teachers and students will learn alongside one another, and as a result, the teachers will model the Portrait of a Graduate dispositions for our students.
