Educators to tour McMinnville's model schools

Grandhaven, Sue Buel and Memorial elementary schools were named models, or exemplary, under the state’s new format for ranking schools doing well and those needing assistance.

The visiting educators will observe classrooms at each of the model schools Wednesday morning.

At lunch in the Evergreen Space Museum, they will hear about the district’s power strategies, common formative assessments, data teams and Science, Technology, Engineering and Math emphasis.

Later in the afternoon, they will participate in workshops about early literacy, effective behavior and comprehensive math programs.
