Parents, teachers or community members wanting to learn more about the Kansas College and Career Ready Standards are urged to attend an informational session at Mayberry Middle School in Wichita.
The session, 5:30 to 7:30 p.m. Jan. 6, is being hosted by several professional education organizations, including the Kansas Association of Teachers of Mathematics, the Kansas Learning First Alliance, the Wichita school district and United Teachers of Wichita. Mayberry is at 207 S. Sheridan, near Maple and West Street.
During a general session, education experts will talk about the new standards and how they were adopted. The panel will include Kansas Education Commissioner Diane DeBacker and State Board of Education members Kathy Busch and Jim McNiece. That will be followed by break-out sessions aimed at parents, community members and educators.
Two schools that bring the most parents and teachers to the session will win $500 each to use toward math education. For more information or to enter your school for the prize, e-mail Debbie Thompson at firstname.lastname@example.org, or visit www.katm.org.
