Arts and Tech receives state attention for work with at risk youth

posted Jun 12, 2014, 10:22 AM by Web Master   [ updated Jun 12, 2014, 10:22 AM ]

Marysville Arts and Technology High School recently received state attention for their work with at-risk and special needs students and will be making a presentation in front of a state task force soon on the issue.

Principal Terri Kaltenbach attributes the school’s success to the many resources they have to connect directly with the student and connect the student to the community.

At the June 2 Marysville School District board meeting, Kaltenbach explained that the school was noticed by state officials after a family complained that their education services weren’t the same after they moved away from Marysville.

The  high school bowling season may be over, but a few local youngsters aren't about to hang up their bowling shoes or wrist braces for the summer.

Snohomish County sent four teams to a state-wide, United States Bowling Congress-sponsored All-Star tournament last weekend in Anacortes and Mount Vernon; two youth and two adult squads bowling against the best bowlers in the state. It was Marysville's Bryson Parker's third All-Star tournament, but junior Chance Mair, a student at Arts & Tech High School, was a newcomer to the event.

Introducing Thoughtstream: Join the conversation!

posted Jun 9, 2014, 11:36 AM by Web Admin   [ updated Jun 9, 2014, 11:36 AM ]

Introducing Thoughtstream:  Thoughtstream is a community engagement tool to help us learn from our stakeholders.

As part of Dr. Becky Berg, Superintendent, and the Marysville School District’s Board of Directors efforts to continue to listen and learn from our stakeholders, our district will utilize Thoughtstream, an online tool to help us understand what is important to parents, staff, students and community members.  Sometimes face to face meetings can be a challenge for people to attend and it can be difficult to hear from everyone in the room.  Thoughtstream will allow us to reach out to everyone affected by decisions made by our district and to hear their priorities.  Dr. Berg, the school board, and district leadership team will learn from these priorities which will help inform decision-making for the future.

There are three steps that stakeholders will be invited to participate in:

  1. THOUGHTS:  Participants answer three open-ended questions 
  2. PRIORITIES:  Where participants review ideas from other participants and put stars next to the ideas they like best 
  3. DISCOVERIES:  Where everyone learns what was important to the group as a whole
Please watch your email inbox for an invitation to participate from your school's principal.  We are now in the second phase of participation:  identifying priorities.  We look forward to you sharing your thoughts with us!

If you are a community member or if you have a child in one or more of our schools and did not receive an email invitation to participate, you may do so by clicking the link and choosing either the Community Thoughtstream or your child's school.  Click LINK to participate.  NOTE:  We are now in Step 2:  identifying priorities.  Join the conversation!
