Local Education Panel Discussion

Feb 6, 2013, 6:00 PM - 7:00 PM
Taylor Auditorium, Marsh Hall, Pacific Main Campus

Join our lively panelists as they discuss how local schools are overcoming limitations to promote student success and their plans for the future. This discussion is relevant to anyone interested in education, social justice, and our community's future.


Forest Grove and Hillsboro schools have very diverse student bodies encompassing a wide range of income levels, English language proficiency, academic skills, and more. The ability of the schools to meet the diverse needs of their student body has been deeply impacted by substantial budget cuts. This lively panel discussion will address the ways local schools are promoting student achievement despite limitations and their plans for the future.

The panel will have representatives from the different layers in our educational system. It will include a teacher, after school program director, district school board member, and mentors from Pacific. Each will offer unique and insightful perspectives on this important issue. Afterwards, the discussion will open to audience participation.

Not only does this event aim to show Pacific and the local community what’s happening in our schools, but it will also offer steps individuals can take to support student achievement.

Refreshments will be provided.

Any questions regarding the event can be directed to Amy Smetana, Mentor Program Coordinator and AmeriCorps Member, at asmetana@pacificu.edu. The Mentor Program is a new and vibrant program in the Center for Civic Engagement which connects Pacific students with meaningful mentoring opportunities in local schools.
