Community to discuss academic standards with expert April 9

April 7, 2014

Germantown — The School Board on Monday gave final approval for a community event and board workshop to be led by Dr. Sandra Stotsky on April 9.

Stotsky is credited with developing one the country's strongest set of academic standards for kindergarten through 12th grade, Superintendent Jeff Holmes said.

While in Germantown, she will explain how to propel the public schools forward in their desire to adopt stronger standards.

On April 9, she will have a full day working with key staff members on the subject of English language arts standards and curriculum.

"We will have representatives from all grade levels and departments (present)," Holmes said.

Stotsky will lead a forum about modern curriculum and standards at Kennedy Middle School at 7. Parents and community members are encouraged to participate.

"This is a good start off to our committee as we begin to form our standards in Germantown," board member Brian Medved said. "Dr. Stotsky's record speaks for itself. ... We're excited to have her come here. I think she will bring a lot of good things to get us started on the right foot."
