Education forums in Federal Way target student achievement

Federal Way schools Superintendent Robert Neu will host a series of educational events called “Focused Forums” in the coming months.

The topics and dates are:

• Feb. 1: Equity and achievement gap/closing the achievement gap

• March 15: Special academic programs, announcements

• May 17: Standards-based education

All forums are at 6 p.m. in the board room of the Educational Service Center, 31405 18th Ave. SE in Federal Way. After an overview of a topic, attendees will break into groups to hold discussions. Each group will make a summary of its conversation and give it out to the other groups. District staff and members of the school board will be there and participate in the group activities.
