The Post Falls and Coeur d'Alene School Districts are exploring the possibility of a boundary change, seeking to establish a permanent, common-sense boundary line in an agreement that is beneficial to both districts. It is important that we hear from potentially affected property owners, as a change may impact where your children attend school or the amount of property taxes you pay for public education. Letters have been sent to owners of property areas under consideration for boundary adjustment.

It is our intent to include a grandfather clause in any agreement to permit currently enrolled students directly affected by a boundary adjustment to attend the district of their choice until they complete schooling.
The Board of Trustees for the Coeur d'Alene and Post Falls school districts will hold a joint workshop on Monday, March 19, to further discuss this issue and gather input from potentially affected property owners. The workshop is scheduled to begin at 6 pm at the Midtown Meeting Center, 1505 N. 5th St, in Coeur d'Alene.
If you are unable to attend this workshop but would like to submit comments, you may send your comments to Lynn Towne, Clerk of the Board, Coeur d'Alene Public Schools, 1400 N. Northwood Center Court, Coeur d'Alene, ID 83814. You may also email comments to her at email@example.com.
Students in our secondary schools participated in the National School Walkout on 3/14 to voice their concerns about school safety. An estimated 1,000 students took part in these student-led activities at 10 a.m. The students returned to their classes after about 20 minutes. They were respectful, thoughtful and well-behaved.
Across the district, these students spoke about sharing their concerns and contributing their ideas to improving the safety of schools. They observed moments of silence to remember the victims of school violence, including the 17 who died one month ago at Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School in Parkland, Florida. Some signed a letter to members of Congress demanding changes they believe will help end gun violence. Others filled out voter-registration cards.
Thank you to the Coeur d’Alene Police Department, Coeur d’Alene Fire Department and Kootenai County Sheriff’s Office for helping us prepare and for devoting additional resources to our schools.

We invite you to adopt a classroom!
Building readers in our community help us all. A student’s ability to read has a powerful implication for whether the child will enter college or find a good job. One of the most accurate predictors of a student’s future academic success is whether he/she has developed reading as a pastime pursuit.
The possibilities are as endless as your imagination and the creativity of the teachers whose class you adopt! Read more about adopting a class.
