Jan 13th: Planned phone/internet outage at Operations ONLY 9am to 11am

telephone2Wed Jan 13th: There will be no phone or internet access at the Operations building ONLY, from 9am and will last approximately 2 hours.

How will that impact our schools?  During this time frame, you will NOT be able to contact Operations/Transportation via phone or email.
Why?  The City of West Des Moines is doing emergency work on underground fiber optics along Grand Avenue.  The fiber was recently damaged and is impacting city services and since we are sharing fiber in this area, our services (at Operations ONLY) will be impacted during the repair. Under normal weather conditions, this work would be done during the evenings – but with extremely low temps, the emergency work needs to be moved to the day time.

STUCAMP to held Jan 30th

Join hundreds of students across Iowa to change what school looks like in Webster City and Bettendorf on January 30th, 2016. Sign up today at StuCamp.org!

 

Why have StuCamp?
StuCamp’s primary focus is to give voice to our students and to turn that voice into action. We believe we can produce grassroots reform at the classroom level. Every attendee should walk away at the end of the day asking, “What am I going to do on Monday?” based on their interactions.

How is StuCamp going to work?
We are asking that teachers target students who want to make a change and share this event with them. Once at your StuCamp, students will connect and network with other students about topics they’re passionate about. These topics may not necessarily be directly related to education and school, and that is certainly okay.

What is StuCamp?
StuCamp is an unconference for students that follows the EdCamp model. EdCamps are unconferences where all of the facilitated sessions are planned that morning. There are no presentations, no PowerPoints, and no hand outs. Each session is a conversation where every student’s voice is important and new ideas can be formed and followed.
