The State Board of Education will be hosting a community forum in Vancouver on November 6 from 5:30 p.m.-7:30 p.m. at the Washington State School for the Blind. This forum will feature an open discussion about the SBE’s draft strategic plan, with a focus on social-emotional learning and student well-being.
The community forum will kick off with a short overview of the draft strategic plan by SBE staff. During the forum, discussion will be facilitated in small groups. At the conclusion of the meeting, the small groups will report highlights from the discussion to the entire audience. The discussion will be documented throughout by State Board staff members so the Board can continue to work toward developing equitable policies to support career and college readiness for all students. The Vancouver forum is the final forum in a series that has been held across the state over the past year to inform the Board’s strategic planning process.
