EDUCATING CHILDREN OF COLOR CONFERENCE
The 8th Annual Educating Children of Color Summit will take place on January 17, 2015 at Colorado College in Colorado Springs. The Summit is designed for educators and school staff, juvenile justice professionals, high school youth and their parents. The Summit's mission is to “dismantle the cradle to prison pipeline for children of color and children in poverty, through education. “

The cost for professionals is $25 and that money is returned to youth in the form of scholarships.
There is no cost to parents or youth. The Summit has awarded $74,000 in scholarship money to high school juniors and seniors over the course of the last 7 years. Also, 70+ laptops have been given away to youth in attendance. The day counts as eight contact hours and professional participants can pay an additional $27.50 to get .5 of a graduate credit from Adams State University. The last day to register is January 10, 2015.

*Inclement Weather Procedures*
 
As many of you realize, the weather in Colorado can vary widely from day to day and through different parts of the Colorado Springs region. District 8 monitors the weather closely in an attempt to provide safe access to schools for students, parents and staff. Two-Hour Late Starts and/or District closures will be announced through various methods including:  television, radio, the District’s website, and the Flash Alert Emergency Notification System. More information can be found regarding how you can sign up for Flash Alert by clicking on this LINK.
 
Please be aware that announcements for closures will list FOUNTAIN-FORT CARSON SCHOOL DISTRICT 8 as “DISTRICT 8.” This description is used to differentiate the school district from the closures or delays that may occur on Fort Carson.

 
If parents believe the conditions are not safe on a day when inclement weather conditions exist and the District is still open, it is always the parents’ option to keep their child at home.
