May 22, 2016, in the BUF Conference Room, 9:15 a.m. – 10:15 a.m: Kiira Heymann, Core Faculty Member of Explorations Academy

Explorations Academy is unlike any other independent school in the Pacific Northwest. This fully accredited high school has served students of Whatcom and Skagit counties for over 20 years. Rooted in experiential, field-based learning, the program provides students with opportunities to explore diverse subject matter, build positive relationships with peers and adults, and engage with the world around them in meaningful ways. At this Sunday’s forum, Kiira Heymann, a member of the “core faculty,” will share important highlights from the school year and lead a discussion around the kinds of skills, experiences and aptitudes that define education today as we prepare students for a complex, challenging, and exciting tomorrow.

  1. We have noticed that there are two kinds of Forum events: one is when a representative of a community organization comes to tell us about that organization and the other is when we designate a topic to talk about rather than an organization. It seems that the "topic" events are more discussion-oriented and the "organization" events are more lecture oriented. Would anyone else like to intersperse these type meetings more deliberately? Maybe alternate between them, or have one "topic" type meeting per month?
