The Stevenson-Carson School District Math Curriculum Adoption Committee is planning a Math Open House for Thursday, March 5th.
“Over the last five months we’ve visited schools, talked with educators, observed lessons, and reviewed materials with the goal of selecting curriculum that we believe will be effective for our students and aligns with Common Core State Standards,” said committee leader and SHS Principal Sarah Marino.
For the second year in a row, the Stevenson High School Knowledge Bowl team has won the SW Washington Regional tournament.
"At the end of the regular season, SHS was the top seed of the 10 1-A schools in the SW division, and they lived up to all expectations," said coach Bob Rogers.
"Not only did the Bulldogs accumulate the highest point total in the qualifying rounds, but they dominated in the championship round beating out White Salmon and La Center by a score of 21-10-8," continuted Rogers.
Congratulations K-Bowl Dogs! Good luck at State!

During Winter Break and the month of January, schools and buildings throughout Stevenson-Carson School District were outfitted with security cameras. The video surveillance system is part of an ongoing initiative to provide safe learning environments for students and staff.
The goal of the existing and new cameras is to provide additional safety and security for our students, staff, and buildings. The security cameras were installed at entryways, hallways, and exterior locations throughout the district. This is one of the latest steps taken by SCSD to bring the district inline with the 2013 safety audit conducted by Construction Services Group in a cooperative with Educational Service District 112 in Vancouver.
The cameras installed in the schools are video only and recordings are only accessible by building administrators and authorized staff. The new camera systems allow for real-time monitoring and are able to be accessed remotely.
The Poetry Out Loud contest at Stevenson High School was “tougher than ever this year,” said Sophomore English teacher Becky Harmening.
The contest saw four freshman, eight sophomores, four juniors, and six seniors compete for the opportunity to represent SHS at Regionals. Participants were selected based on their classroom presentations; which was a culmination of the Poetry out Loud units done at all grade levels.
Stevenson-Carson School District is exploring options for how we can open the swimming pool on a limited basis through a student-led business education program at the high school.
The purpose of the survey is to gather input from students, parents and the community on desired use, student participation in high school business courses, and to establish whether opening the pool is financially feasible. We appreciate your support and input as we strive to continue providing our students with unique and effective learning opportunities.
A note about the survey: If you are a parent, guardian, or community member please skip to the second page of the survey. The first page is for students. We want to make sure we are getting accurate information from students about their interest on course offerings and work opportunities. Thank you.

On Wednesday, November 19th parents and community members are invited to learn about the upcoming Common Core standards from expert Rob Siegel.
“My hope is that after attending, parents will have a better understanding of the new standards that will be going into effect and how they (parents) can partner with the schools to help their students be successful,” said Superintendent Dan Read.
During summer vacation the maintenance and IT departments were hard at work preparing classrooms, libraries, and common areas for the new school year.
District IT Director Anthony Winstead, along with the help of a few students, installed PC’s and thin clients in new labs across the district. They also updated every computer to run the latest software and security to ensure students and staff are up-to-date.
