This is the time of year when high school students and their parents are carefully considering the next steps after graduation – -college, career, military – -or all three. Teachers and counselors have an important role in this often, the WDE staff shares opportunities and scholarship notices via memo and social media. I ask that when these opportunities come across your desk, you send them along to the appropriate people in your schools. This week there are two such memos.
SHUTDOWN: So far, the WDE has been able to absorb the effects of the federal government shutdown so as not to disrupt school district business. We will keep you apprised when and if that changes.
Memos to be released:
- 2019-008: Public Input on Proposed Computer Science Standards
- 2019-009: Jack Kent Cooke Foundation Scholarship Opportunities
- 2019-010: BPX Energy Scholarship Opportunities
