College Access Summit Flyer 2018Central Consolidated School District will host the College Access Summit on Tuesday, April 24 at Bond Wilson Technical Center in Kirtland.
 
The College Access Summit will bring together students from San Juan County and colleges and universities from across the country, including some of the most prestigious in the nation.

They see value in their traditional experiences and that value can potentially lead to scholarship offers.”
 
The Summit is designed for students in grades 6-11 and will include workshop sessions on preparing college applications, writing application essays and a college fair.
 
College and universities expected to be in attendance include Amherst College, Bryn Mawr, Caltech, Carleton College, Dickinson College, Duke University, Kenyon College, University of Northland College, Santa Clara University, Sarah Lawrence, Southern Methodist, St. John’s College, Stanford University, Swarthmore College, Union College, Vanderbilt University and Washington University St. Louis.

Safety ForumRecent events, locally and nationwide, have thrust the issues of student and school safety to the forefront of our thoughts, our conversations and our actions. Central Consolidated School District students have many questions, concerns and opinions regarding the issues of school and student safety. Therefore, each CCSD school will host a safety forum on Wednesday, March 14, that coincide with national events.
 
Each safety forum will be age-appropriate and will provide students opportunities to express their concerns and opinions. CCSD would like to assure parents that these forums are only a platform for students’ voices to be heard, they are not intended for children to hear the opinions or views of CCSD staff. Some topics that could be discussed at the different school levels are listed below.
