The Coeur d’Alene Education Partnership (CEP) presents the 6th annual State of the District Community Forum, in partnership with Coeur d’Alene School District #271. The event is 6:00 – 7:30pm Monday, March 12 in the Innovation Den at 418 Lakeside Ave.. Parents, teachers, students, and community members are invited to attend.

“These issues matter to all of us,” said CEP President Amy Voeller. “The quality of education received by our students directly impacts the vibrancy of our community and demands our attention and engagement.” Presentations and discussion at the March 12, 2018 State of the District will focus on the past, present, and future of the Coeur d’Alene School District.

The evening will begin with a discussion on the recent past in the Coeur d’Alene School District, led by Interim Superintendent Dr. Stan Olson. The community and school staff have been participating in Data Summits, closely examining a wide range of data for all grade levels regarding academic achievement and other indicators of student success. Dr. Olson will share insights and direction gained from these forums.

Following this discussion, Dr. Olson will share current planning and progress on district growth, building renovations, and land acquisition. Dr. Mike Nelson will showcase Career Cruising, a tool currently in use in grades 7 – 12 for four-year planning, high school course selection, and career and college exploration. There are some exciting additions to this tool which will strengthen connections between our students and local businesses.

The final segment of the presentation will focus on the future of our district and community. Dr. Steven Cook, our incoming Superintendent, will share his vision for the future of Coeur d’Alene schools and community. Dr. Cook has most recently served as Deputy Superintendent in the south Denver metropolitan area for the Douglas County School District.


The Coeur d’Alene Education Partnership is an independent, nonprofit partnership driven by the belief that every student in our district deserves a public education of the highest quality. We work to unite individuals, businesses, and organizations in support of excellence in public education, to keep the community informed about educational developments, and to promote superior public schools.

There will be time allowed for those in attendance to ask questions of the presenters periodically through the evening.

Recognizing the need for an entity to unite the community around quality public education, keep citizens informed about opportunities and issues in local and state educational policy, and bring human and monetary resources to schools, local residents formed CEP to be a pillar for student success and excellence in the Coeur d’Alene district.
