Registration is open for the 2017 RSOI Feeding Seminar, taking place Nov. 30 and Dec. 1 at the Chemeketa Eola Event Center in Salem. The event will focus on the need for an interdisciplinary approach to assessing and treating oral motor dysfunction in children with cerebral palsy.  

School leaders, DCSO remind parents of emergency procedures

All schools in the county are now in session.

Along with A-B-Cs, calculus and other academic classes, students will also participate in mandatory safety drills throughout the year to prepare and learn how to behave in emergency situations. School administrators say it’s helpful for parents to familiarize themselves with and understand emergency protocols too.

Sept. 22 workshop still open for registration

If you've put off signing up for the Sept. 22 grant-writing workshop for educators, don't panic. There's still room for participants.   

Author, speaker and educator Linda Karges-Bone will present the full-day presentation in Salem. The workshop is designed to help teachers and districts secure funding for assistive technology and other special needs. Organizers describe it as “ideal for small groups who are interested in bringing funding to their creative ideas.”

Equity a theme of Aug. 25 Inservice Day

As incredible as it seems – wasn’t it just Memorial Day Weekend? – yet another summer has come and is poised to go. As fall approaches, Douglas Education Service District welcomes employees to our next annual Inservice Day this Friday.

For those of us who report to work in Douglas County, the mandatory meeting is scheduled for 8 a.m. (when breakfast is served!) to 4:30 p.m. Aug. 25. We’ll gather at the county fairgrounds complex south of Roseburg. Our office will be closed and services suspended that day so everyone can attend.

PartnerSports Camp 2017 kept athletes engaged

Many thanks to all who helped to make the July 10-20 PartnerSports Camp a memorable occasion for our campers, partners and volunteers (and speaking of those folks, thanks to them, too, for being such good sports). Whether they were swimming, golfing, fishing, working on crafts or perfecting their martial arts moves, our 2017 participants were making connections we hope will be valuable to them in the years ahead.

PartnerSports Camp 2017 schedule released

Ideally, children’s summer camps offer opportunities for growth as well as fun. That’s certainly true at PartnerSports Camp 2017, a cooperative effort of Douglas Education Service District and the YMCA of Douglas County. A full schedule of events is available here.
