Piedmont: Changing the way science is taught
The exercise was part of an explanation of a new way to teach science during a discussion led by Lawrence Hall of Science Director Elizabeth Stage and Piedmont Middle School Curriculum Director Suzanna Loper. Their program, "How Science Education is Changing," is supported by research being done at the hall.
"Love in the Wilderness" is the theme of a hike from 8:30 to 11:30 a.m. Feb. 14 at Sunol Regional Wilderness, led by naturalist Cat Taylor. The group will look for "amorous amphibians and rapturous raptors."
Superintendent Randy Booker explained there are small fundraisers at schools such as magazine or bake sales with different volunteers handling the proceeds that are turned over. The district will strive to tighten the system to ensure that the funds are properly managed. Montgomery stressed there was no indication of mishandling of funds, just better accounting was needed.
