The Brookings-Harbor School District (BHSD) leadership team worked to define student success April 11 when it met with facilitator Steve Kelley from the Oregon School Boards Association (OSBA).

The meeting was part of the district’s work in the Promise Scholarship Program (PSP), a series of guided sessions offered by the OSBA designed to structure the board’s planning process and obtain input from various stakeholders, including teachers, administrators, district staff and board members, according to district reports.

BHSD Public Information Officer Nancy Raskauskas-Coons said team members weigh in on the district’s goals and priorities during the meetings, and each smaller group is facilitated by a school board member while Kelley guides the larger session. She said later phases in the process might include input from members of the public.

OSBA encourages districts to participate in PSP by offering $2,500 or $5,000 of scholarship money for their students, according to its website.
