TOP STORY: EXECUTION DRUGS HOUSTON — Texas prison officials are helping Virginia carry out a scheduled execution next week by providing that state with the lethal drug pentobarbital that corrections agencies nationwide have had difficulty obtaining.

INFRASTRUCTURE-DRINKING WATER-MONEY TRAIL The largest federal aid program for improving the nation's crumbling drinking water infrastructure has struggled to spend money in a timely fashion despite demand that far outpaces the amount available, a review by The Associated Press shows.

With: INFRASTRUCTURE-DRINKING WATER DES MOINES, Iowa — Like flipping a switch to light a room, turning on the faucet and instantly having clean, cheap water is something Americans have come to take for granted. That has begun to change in many parts of the country. Farm runoff has polluted municipal water sources, drought has taken its toll on reservoirs and wells, and the aging underground networks of pipes that carry water to homes and businesses rupture all too frequently, disrupting lives and wasting an increasingly precious resource. The resulting tensions are playing out all over the country. Just as with crumbling bridges or congested highways, the solutions don't come cheap. By Ryan J. Foley.

OSU football: With growing momentum in the Lone Star State, might Oklahoma State be closing the gap on having more Texas-born talent than the Longhorns?Sep 25, 2015
OSU travels to Austin this Saturday with 66 native Texans on its roster — more than any other Football Bowl Subdivision program outside the Lone Star State.
OSU football: With growing momentum in the Lone Star State, might Oklahoma State be closing the gap on having more Texas-born talent than the Longhorns?
By Kyle Fredrickson | Sep 25, 2015AUSTIN, Texas — When offensive tackle Zach Crabtree committed to Oklahoma State back in May 2012, those close to the Mansfield, Texas, native might have questioned the decision. Even his high school coach, Jeff Hulme, who was only half-joking when prodding Crabtree about his college choice: “You're a Texas boy. Why would you leave the state of Texas? You were raised here. You've never been outside the state of Texas. What are you doing?” “I wanted to be a Cowboy,” Crabtree said. “I love this place.” He's not alone. OSU travels to Austin this Saturday with 66 native Texans on its roster — more than any other Football Bowl Subdivision program outside the Lone Star State. According to a Rivals database, though, only 19 of those players received recruiting interest from the Longhorns. From that group, only two received Texas scholarship offers: true freshmen defensive linemen Darrion Daniels and Louis Brown. Some of the Cowboys' most notable Texas talents barely caught a whiff of interest from the Longhorns. “I didn't talk to them at all,” Crabtree said. “They didn't really stick out their neck or anything for me,” said safety Tre Flowers, of Converse, Texas. “I never got offered by Texas,” said Emmanuel Ogbah, of Houston. That last one probably stings for Texas fans. It also begs an interesting question: Might OSU be closing the gap on having more Texas-born talent than the Longhorns? The answer depends on how you define success. Ogbah is the lone player from either team who is considered a sure-fire first-round prospect in this upcoming NFL Draft. However, Texas holds a decided edge in recent years compared to OSU in that category. From 2010 to 2015, 17 native Texans on the Longhorns' roster have been selected. The Cowboys had six native Texans drafted in that same span. But in terms of wins and losses, the Cowboys hold the advantage. From 2011 through three games this season, with a starting roster composed of mostly Texas-born players, OSU has won 40 games. The Longhorns have won 32. “Right about the time (Texas) started recruited me was when Colt McCoy was leaving,” said quarterback J.W. Walsh, of Denton, Texas, who received interest but no scholarship offer from the Longhorns. “They still kind of had that Texas-of-old in them. But you could definitely tell OSU was on the rise.” The Cowboys' recruiting message of an on-the-rise program to Texas prospects continues today, as OSU coach Mike Gundy says 100 percent of recruiting resources are somehow used in the state. Even then, Texas high school players who receive scholarship offers from the Longhorns remain difficult to land. “We offer 30 of them, and 28 of them nine months later, we're off their radar if Texas offers,” Gundy said. That is little concern to Gundy and the coaching staff, though, as the program prides itself in discovering and developing under-recruited Texas talent. Of its six native Texans selected in the NFL Draft since 2010, none received scholarship offers from the Longhorns out of high school, according to Rivals. “We like the players that we have here,” Gundy said. “Sometimes we take players that other people don't think are up to par to play at this level, for whatever reason.” It all adds up to what should be an emotional matchup 2:30 p.m. Saturday at Darrell K Royal-Texas Memorial Stadium. “I know it means a little bit more,” defensive coordinator Glenn Spencer said. “You love to say, ‘Hey, you play all of them like they're the same.' But it's just not. I know that a lot of them are going to be juiced up because of that. What we've got to do is make them realize that can't effect what's happening between your ears.” OVERALL RECORDS 2011-PRESENT OSU: 40-15 UT: 32-23 2006-2010 UT: 50-15 OSU: 44-21 RIVALS RECRUITING CLASS RANKINGS 2015 UT: 12 OSU: 38 2014 UT: 20 OSU: 27 2013 UT: 24 OSU: 36 2012 UT: 2 OSU: 32 2011 UT: 3 OSU: 28 TEXAS NATIVES SELECTED IN NFL DRAFT OSU 2015: None 2014: 1-8 Justin Gilbert (The Woodlands) 2013: None 2012: 6-190 Markelle Martin (Wichita Falls) 2011: 4-115 Kendall Hunter (Tyler) 2010: 1-6 Russell Okung (Fort Bend), 1-24 Dez Bryant (Galveston County), 5-137 Perrish Cox (Waco) TOTAL: 6 UT 2015: 1-32 Malcom Brown (Brenham), 5-144 Mykkele Thompson (San Antonio), 6-200 Quandre Diggs (Angleton) 2014: None 2013: 1-15 Kenny Vacccaro (Brownwood), 3-78 Marquise Goodwin (Lubbock), 4-103 Alex Okafor (Dallas) 2012: 4-119 Keenan Robinson* (Plano), 6-204 Emmanuel Acho (Dallas), 7-215 Kheeston Randle (Beaumont) 2011: 2-34 Aaron Williams (Austin), 3-95 Curtis Brown (Gilmer), 4-103 Sam Acho* (Dallas), 5-164 Chykie Brown (Houston) 2010: 1-4 Earl Thomas (Orange), 2-43, Sergio Kindle* (Dallas), 3-84 Jordan Shipley (Temple), 4-131 Roddrick Muckelroy (Longview) TOTAL: 17 * Player born outside Texas, but played high school football in the state.

Back to School: Pikes Peak region districts offer new programs, new buildings
Debbie Kelley, Associated Press | Aug 3, 2015That six-letter "s" word, school, isn't just around the corner. It's here. Two of the Pikes Peak region's 17 public school districts, Falcon School District 49 and Ellicott School District 22, resume classes this week. A few more start back next week, with most in session by the third week in August. "There's always just a new energy at the beginning of a school year. We're excited to welcome new families and returning families and look forward to a new start," said Jed Bowman, superintendent of Woodland Park School District RE-2 and president of the Colorado Association of Superintendents and Senior Administrators. Three districts - Fountain-Fort Carson School District 8, Hanover School District 28 and Miami-Yoder School District JT-60 - begin the 2015-2016 year with new superintendents. "Options" is an operative word in 21st century education, with many districts giving more and more choices of how, when and where students learn. Concurrent enrollment, in which students can earn college credits while in high school, remains popular, and vocational and technical education is resurging. Three districts, Widefield School District 3, Harrison School District 2 and Lewis-Palmer School District 38, are updating their websites, and two, Cheyenne Mountain School District 12 and Edison School District 54-JT, are expanding buildings. On the state level, Colorado lawmakers reduced some requirements for standardized assessments, which "should make a real difference to parents," said Dana Smith, spokeswoman for the Colorado Department of Education. New testing that started last year expanded science and social studies tests to 11th and 12th graders, which led to criticism and concerns about over-testing. Two testing windows for English language arts and math have been shortened to one, and test lengths have decreased by about 90 minutes for all grades. For the most part, high school students will only take standardized English and math tests through the ninth grade. Schools will rotate social studies testing, once every three years. Lawmakers also decided that last year's tests won't count toward school accountability or teacher evaluations. That means there is a one-year hold on accreditation ratings and types of school plans the state assigns based on academic performance. Although the state allows districts to pilot new testing, officials from local districts said they are exploring what that might mean. This year, local school boards must adopt graduation requirements that either meet or exceed state guidelines adopted in 2013. Students who will graduate in 2021 are the first to be impacted by the new rules. Here are other developments in the Pikes Peak region: Academy School District 20 It's the year of expanded online learning in D-20. With a new virtual school, kindergartners through seniors can do online education through the district. Earlier this year, D-20 acquired Colorado Calvert Academy, which had operated as a charter school for five years in Colorado Springs. It's now called Academy Calvert K-8 Online School. Up to 200 students in kindergarten through eighth grade can enroll, said Elizabeth Davis, principal. Nine staff members puts the student-teacher ratio at 1-to-30, she said. "One of the hallmarks is that the school is kept intentionally small so we can provide that high level of teacher-student interaction and create that feeling that students have access to their teachers when they need them," Davis said. Elementary and middle school students will have individualized learning plans using Calvert Education's curriculum, which is offered nationwide and overseas. Students also can go to the "blended-learning center" at 3475 Hampton Park Drive for personal support and interaction with classmates during science experiments, art lessons, tutoring and guidance. "It's a national model for what blended learning looks like; it allows for the freedom students want and provides an extra layer of face-to-face support that's still necessary," Davis said. Also new, all D-20 high school students can take online or hybrid courses through the Extended Studies at Academy Online program. Students can extend their schedules with hybrid and fully online courses that they may not be able to fit in or access at their regular high school. For most classes, dual high school and University of Colorado credits will be available. D-20 teachers will help students learn in the non-traditional environment. The Academy Online High School also is embarking on a pilot program for ninth graders. Students will have individualized curriculum with collaborative problem-solving activities. They also will conduct personal inquiry investigations under the supervision of D-20 teachers. The blended program combining on-campus activities and at-home work will operate out of two modular classrooms at Pine Creek High. Kindergarten through eighth grade homeschoolers will be able to take new math and English language arts curriculum with academic support through the D-20 Home School Academy at the administration building, 1110 Chapel Hills Drive. Students also will receive instruction in visual arts and music. Parents will receive model lessons to support their student's learning goals and access English and math curriculum at no cost, said Nanette Anderson district spokeswoman. D-20 has seven new principals and two administrators, Bob Barros, executive director for special education; and Maureen Lang, director for professional learning. With the addition of the online school, enrollment is expected to be up over last year's 24,578 pupil count. Calhan School District RJ-1 "A lot" is going on in Calhan, said Superintendent Linda Miller. The school building for preschool through 12th graders soon will get a new roof. The district has been awarded its third Building Excellent Schools Today, or BEST, grant from the state, which helps fund capital improvements. The roof replacement will cost about $1.2 million, Miller said. Two previous BEST grants paid for air conditioning, energy efficient lighting and security upgrades. "We've been really lucky to get that help from the state," Miller said. Another grant from the Colorado Department of Education enables high school students to take Advanced Placement English, math, science and social studies. "It's something we haven't done in the past," Miller said, "and it gives high school students the opportunity to take advanced course work on our campus." The one-to-one iPad initiative that started last school year in partnership with Apple is expanding so every middle and high school student will be issued a personal electronic device. "Students are so well-versed in technology that this is a learning tool they're very comfortable with," Miller said. "We'll save on paper, no doubt - teachers can electronically submit their assignments and students can send the work directly to the teacher." Also expanding is the Parenting Matters program that kicked off last year for elementary school parents, who learned about literacy, fluency and reading with their child at home. This year, secondary school parents will learn about Internet safety, social media and other topics pertaining to teens. Enrollment should hold steady at about 475 preschoolers through seniors. Cheyenne Mountain School District 12 Cheyenne Mountain High School students will attend classes amid campus construction. The district's $42.5 million project to update its high school campus will continue throughout the school year, and Superintendent Walt Cooper said learning should continue as normal despite the inconvenience. The district will segregate the students and the construction, creating alternate pathways, ensuring student safety and minimizing any "construction zone" feeling in classrooms, Cooper said, adding that "one of the major focuses will be keeping interruptions to a minimum." Construction is expected to be finished in late 2016, but the parking lot renovation will be done before students start school this month and the baseball field will be completed by spring. To eliminate confusion, the district has released logistics and traffic plans for various periods of time through 2017. The fall plan includes clearly marked routes for construction delivery, pedestrian traffic and student drop-off and pick-up. The map also identifies construction zones, barricades and construction site fences. When finished, students will be able to use a main entrance and access any part of the building, uniting the several disjointed buildings on the high school campus. The construction will physically close the campus, but the environment will remain relatively open, so students will be able to leave for lunch, open periods or appointments. Administrators, however, will have more control over the high school campus. In the past, closing down the campus was difficult, even in the event of a security risk, and there was no real way to keep track of students throughout the day. Although eliminating open lunch or requiring students to sign in and out are not in the district's plan, they are options available to administrators. "We'll be able to have a very clear picture of who's coming and going, and we'll be able to secure the campus," Cooper said. The elementary schools and the junior high also are undergoing some construction, but nothing as dramatic as at the high school. Of the $45 million bond issue voters approved in November, $2.5 million was allocated to projects that will impact the entire district, including lighting, electrical and security system upgrades, boiler replacements and playground upgrades to accommodate children with disabilities. Elementary and middle schoolers won't see the construction - the changes in their buildings will occur during school breaks. The district also is considering a new elementary school literacy program, which Cooper emphasized is more all-encompassing than a reading curriculum. This process will not be quick, though: "We spend a lot of time and money when we go through a curriculum adoption process," Cooper said. D-12 has two new principals - Stacy Aldridge at Skyway Elementary and Michael Norris at Gold Camp Elementary. Enrollment has grown 13 percent since 2010, and is anticipated to top last year's count of 5,148 students. Colorado Springs School District 11 Six elementary schools in District 11 will add bus service when school re-starts. A desire to shorten walking distances by half a mile from home to school led to a $1.7 million expansion of the district's transportation program. In all, 32 new routes across elementary, middle and high schools are being added, and some existing routes are being extended. That will qualify an additional 1,600 students to ride a bus, which is free in D-11. The district is focusing on getting students to the handshake at graduation by adding value to their education, said Devra Ashby, spokeswoman. District training to help teachers collaborate and reboot "personal learning communities" has started. The new direction in professional development is based on teachers reflecting on what they've learned, providing feedback to one another and sharing best practices, Ashby said. A new literacy program, "Wonders," will roll out in all elementary schools to "put them all on the same page as far as literacy learning, rather than having different approaches to reading and writing," Ashby said. As part of a "Vision 2030" drive, district leaders are considering asking voters to fund a bond or mill levy override on the 2016 ballot. School staff and parent organizations gave input on needs; community comments also will be solicited. Ashby said the responses will be used to determine what, if anything, will be presented to the board for consideration to address future facilities, staffing, programs, technology and other needs. A "Did You Know" website is underway. Schools that have had declining enrollment or are struggling academically are under intensive plans to turn them around. "Some need marketing plans, some need curb appeal enhancements, some need one-on-one work with systems' improvements," Ashby said. Graduates of 2015 collectively earned $30 million in scholarships, which Ashby said was above the usual $20 million and the highest amount in five years. Six new principals join D-11 this year. In administration, Sherry Kalbach is a new K-12 executive director, one of three in that position. She had been principal at Sabin Middle School. Patricia Reitwiesner has been hired as director of grants. D-11 enrollment has declined by nearly 4 percent in the past five years and is expected to take another dip this year to just above 27,000 students. Cripple Creek-Victor School District RE-1 In his second year as superintendent, Les Lindauer is bringing back a few defunct programs and introducing two new vocational training tracks. An alternative education program for students who have dropped out of school in recent years is returning. About 20 students are expected to participate. "We've lost students for various, and we want them to come back and finish their education," Lindauer said. Students will meet in two classrooms in the lower level of the junior-senior high school. "The program will be different from the conventional classroom, with a lot of hands-on activities," Lindauer said. Also making a comeback this fall are four Advanced Placement classes in English, math, science and social studies. "We had them years ago, and we're very excited to be able to bring them back," Lindauer said. Middle and high school students can enroll in design manufacturing and consumer and family studies. Each class, held in a shop environment with power tools and a computer-aided drafting and design program, can accommodate about 18 students. The district also has lowered its graduation requirements. It has had the highest in the state, Lindauer said, at 30 semester credits. That has dropped to 22, starting with incoming freshman. Doing so, Lindauer said, will free up students' schedules so they can take the new AP classes and vocational courses. "We looked at a lot of school districts' requirements, and we were way over the top," he said. "We're not lowering our standards, just our requirements." A proposal to expand the school-based health center for students to a community health center is under consideration. "We know there's a tremendous need in the community for health services," Lindauer said. Enrollment is projected to hold steady, with 350 kindergarten through 12th graders and another 50 preschoolers. Edison School District 54-JT Architectural engineering plans are getting underway for a 33,000-square-foot expansion of the middle school and high school building in Yoder. Voters in November approved a $275,000 bond issue, which the district used to secure a $15 million BEST grant from the state. "We're a growing district, which is a good problem to have. But we're out of space," said Superintendent Pat Bershinsky. More classrooms, a science lab, an autism room, a special education room, shop space, a gymnasium and a preschool will be added to the building, which opened in 1922. A 1960 addition that includes a commons area, gymnasium and locker rooms will be demolished. Enrollment has grown nearly 14 percent in the past five years, which Bershinsky said is due to academic improvement. Last year, 54-JT, the region's smallest district with 240 students, earned the state's highest ranking for performance and growth. "Our high academic record has attracted a lot of students," he said. "We're going to try to continue student improvement daily. That's our job." The expansion should be completed in July 2017 and eventually will lead to the schools all being connected. Ellicott School District 22 Improvements are happening throughout D-22. Additional staff for early interventions will help identify kindergarten through sixth grade students who have academic problems and need extra help with math and reading. Accelerated students also will get a boost with more staff for the gifted and talented program. A one-on-one technical initiative that started last year in the middle school with each student having an iPad will carry over to the high school this year. Each high school student will receive a laptop for school work. "We're building the program to integrate technology a lot more into our curriculum and expand that experience for our students," said Superintendent Pat Cullen. Advanced Placement courses in language arts, math, science and social studies also will be available for high school students. Vocational education is growing, too. Courses in woodworking and business are being added; the district has had a welding program. Students can receive dual high school and college credit from Pikes Peak Community College. "We're building on some of the things we've done in the past to improve curriculum and instruction, along with student achievement," Cullen said. A ball field has been renovated, and the classroom for students in the severe-needs program, which districts from around the area participate in, has been expanded to accommodate more students. Cullen expects nine students this year, up from seven. District-wide enrollment should remain stable, at nearly 1,100 students. Falcon School District 49 Stability seems to have settled in at D-49. Chief Education Officer Peter Hilts has his third annual contract in hand, the longest for the same person to hold the head position in more than a decade. Also for the first time in a while, the school board has had the same five members for two years in a row. "Many of the positive things I see happening are related to that board stability and commitment to strong governance," Hilts said. The focus since Hilts took over, primary literacy and "49 Pathways" to graduation, is continuing, with each school having a certain theme and new choices being added. New this school year is training to improve systems and procedures. D-49 has hired a Denver-based nonprofit, Rocky Mountain Performance Excellence, to help improve performance. Hilts said enrollment, for example, has been streamlined and is more efficient. A mill levy override voters approved in November is paying for a district-wide patrol officer for all the schools. The money also gave teachers a "significant" boost in salaries, with another supplement to come for teachers whose salaries were frozen during the recession. More technology for students, including iPads and Chromebooks, is available. At Falcon High School, every student will get a Kindle, an e-reader. D-49's board is considering refinancing general bond debt and paying it off in 2016, to save nearly $16 million. Also in discussion is the possibility of presenting another mill levy override to voters next year to pay for school expansions and renovations. Voters this November will consider whether to change board representation from five at-large seats to representation by geographical boundaries. Crowding of school buildings is again a concern. Hilts said enrollment is capped at some buildings, with students enrolling after capacity being bused to another school. Enrollment this school year is expected to grow by another 1,000 students to just under 21,000. Pupil count has increased 33 percent since 2010. Over the summer, a new Peak Partners Initiative launched to develop a relationship with community leaders who don't have a connection to the district. Monthly meetings with 25 community leaders address school finance, facilities' plans, the new career academy and other aspects of D-49, with the idea that those who "graduate" from the leadership institute will volunteer in D-49. The school board also recently approved an application for authorization of a new charter school that will open in the fall of 2016. James Irwin Charter Schools, which has two elementary schools, one high school and one middle school in Colorado Springs, plans to develop a technical and trades academy. It will be housed at Patriot Learning Center, an alternative high school and middle school at 11990 Swingline NE Road in Peyton. Hilts said he approached officials at James Irwin after its attempt to open in another local school district fell through. "They are an entrepreneurial collaborative, and they wanted to work with us because of our history of innovation," he said. D-49 is one of nine districts in the state to have "innovation" status, meaning school leaders are allowed to make more decisions at the school level and try new practices. Hilts expects 200 to 400 students to enroll in the technical and trades academy, which will allow students to earn college credits while earning their high school diploma. Two D-49 "zones" of schools have new leaders. Andy Franko, who had been the head of school at Banning Lewis Ranch Academy, is the new iConnect Zone superintendent. He replaces Kim McClelland, who has moved on to executive director of Colorado Digital BOCES. The Falcon Zone's new superintendent is Julia Roark, who came from the Aspen School District. Fountain-Fort Carson School District 8 Keith Owen left the Department of Education as assistant commissioner of education to return to the district level as superintendent at Fountain-Fort Carson. He began July 1 and replaces Cheryl Serrano, who retired after a 27-year career with D-8. Owen said when he accepted the job in the spring that one of his goals is to "continue to build upon the great tradition of excellence," adding that D-8 has a "fabulous reputation." With about 75 percent of its students having a military connection, the district works closely with Fort Carson to ease the stress of military transfers, family deployments and reintegration so students can focus on their education, said Ty Valentine, director of human resources. New this year, a preschool, Conrad Early Learning Center, will open north of the district's administration building at 10665 Jimmy Camp Road in Fountain. It will start with eight classrooms and professional learning space but has the capacity to expand to at least 12 classrooms, Valentine said. The new building is dedicated to long-time D-8 teacher Yevonne Conrad, who spent her career teaching youngsters and dedicating her efforts to high-quality preschool and kindergarten instruction. All 12 building principals are returning. Seven new assistant principals have been hired. Although Fort Carson is expected to lose about 365 soldiers from a cut of 40,000 soldiers nationwide, district officials project an enrollment growth of 158 students, for a total of 8,278. Hanover School District 28 Grant Schmidt, who became superintendent in July in this district south of Fountain, has hit the ground running. Creating a district-wide strategic plan and facilities plan, with community and staff input, is on the agenda for this school year, along with developing standard operating procedures. In coming months, new policies or revisions to policies will be adopted to meet new legislation regarding student discipline and safety, portability of new staff, Internet and electronic device usage, curriculum and assessments. "The main goal for our district is to relentlessly meet the academic and socio-emotional needs of all students," said Schmidt, who also is continuing his job as principal at Prairie Winds Elementary School in D-28. In June, the Hanover school board voted to appoint Ofelia Gonzalez to fill the open position left by Cathie Wolff until the November election. Also over the summer, the district completed some improvements to its buildings and added a keyless entry system at both schools. Two new school buses are on the horizon. Enrollment is expected to remain around 260 students. Harrison School District 2 Sand Creek Elementary and Carmel Middle School were accepted as International Baccalaureate candidates and will start the program in the fall. Superintendent Andre Spencer said he anticipates that in 18 to 24 months, the schools will be "full-blown" IB. "It focuses on an international education perspective and looks at education from a global standpoint," Spencer said. These will be the district's first schools to adopt the IB program. "We want that exposure for every student at these schools," Spencer said, adding that the plan is to extend it in the future. Two elementary schools, Turman and Stratmoor Hills, are trying a year-round calendar and started classes July 8. Decreasing loss of knowledge over the summer break was among the reasons. More Advanced Placement courses for high school students are being offered, going from five to 19, Spencer said. That has more than quadrupled the number of students enrolled in the programs at the district's two high schools. Not only does D-2 have concurrent enrollment with Pikes Peak Community College, but also the University of Colorado at Colorado Springs and Colorado State University-Pueblo. The latter starts in the junior year of high school, and after graduating, students enter college as a sophomore. Thirty-nine students participated in the SoColo REACH Summer Institute at UCCS. Students took a freshman-level college course, Academic Fitness, and earned three college credits and one high school elective credit for completing the course. A revamped district website that rolled out in July features a "Let's Talk" link that allows anyone to send questions or messages to D-2 officials. Answers will be sent within 24 hours, Spencer said. A first-ever D-2 teachers' job fair held in the spring drew 125 potential candidates. "We wanted people not just looking for a teaching position but specifically for a teaching position at Harrison," Spencer said. D-2 hired 152 teachers for this school year, down from 176 last year. Enrollment should continue its slight growth pattern and be up a little from last year's 11,441 students. Lewis-Palmer School District 38 An emphasis on educating the whole child and the 21st century learner, creating a safe environment and building community support are leading D-38 into the year. Establishing a "wellness team" in every school will get underway at back-to-school nights, and a district wellness group will offer instruction on mindfulness, healthy eating and movement in the classroom. The program is aligned with the Colorado Action for Healthy Kids. Prairie Winds Elementary earned a $500 grant for its wellness initiatives. Internet bandwidth for faster performance and improvements to technology infrastructure was expanded over the summer at the middle and high schools. The result: more classroom devices - cell phones, tablets and laptops, can access the Internet at any given time. "We will continue our improvement efforts to enhance the technology foundation and the instructional toolkit for all our teachers and students," said Liz Walhof, director of instruction and information technology. The old Palmer Lake Elementary School Library, which has a four-season sunroom, is undergoing a $56,000 renovation. Flexible, kid-friendly spaces that adjust to accommodate adult learners, such as shelving on rolling casters, new technology and energy-efficient windows are part of the plan. A parent group, Friends of Julie, named for former Palmer Lake Elementary School principal Julie Jadomski, who retired in May and is now a school board member, donated money to the project. "It's exciting. It's getting a whole new look," said Julie Stephen, D-38 spokeswoman. Summer maintenance projects have included replacing 1,000 feet of aging sewer lines, updating water heating systems, installing a back-up generator, replacing a cooling tower, updating electrical systems, installing classroom projectors and adding food service sinks. The Project Lead the Way biomedical sciences program that was added at Lewis-Palmer High last school year had 80 students enrolled in the introductory course, principles of biomedical sciences, according to principal Sandi Brandl. This year, a second-level course is being offered, human body systems, which Brandl said will have more than 90 students. The plan is to add a third-year course, medical interventions, and a fourth year, biomedical innovation. The district's Business Advisory Council will host a first-ever Career Awareness Fair in the fall for middle and high school students. While D-38 has offered college fairs for years, Stephen said this is the first time for an event focusing on career opportunities. The Tri-Lakes Chamber of Commerce, Tri-Lakes Cares, Integrity Bank and Trust and other local businesses will have representatives talking about lines of work and provide tips on resumes, interview skills and other aspects of job hunting. D-38 enrollment is expected to increase by 20 or so students over last year's October count of 6,207. Manitou Springs School District 14 A new district think tank called ManX is intended to inspire new programs that will enhance the schools' environment, academics and growth mindset. The group, established by Superintendent Ed Longfield and based on Google's technological advancement division called Google X, is made up of about 20 staff members who study important thinkers and aim to answer: "What if we could do anything we wanted to help children learn and be ready for the 21st century? What would those things be?" "We come around and we think about new idea around learning, new experiences for kids - just kind of brainstorm, how do we become more effective - losing old paradigms of, 'school has to be this way,'" Longfield said. Administrators are working to improve the district's varied programs, many of which encourage in students what Longfield considers to be the secret to success: a combination of innovation and grit. Students can take ballet classes in a studio on the high school campus, participate in smart design, a science class that teaches such topics as robotics and aerospace engineering, or take affordable after-school music lessons through the Fine Arts Institute of Manitou, a program that serves about 100 students per day. Sixth graders can opt in to the Mountain Academy of Arts and Sciences at Ute Pass Elementary, an outdoor, experiential learning program focused on math and science. Although Longfield said the district is experiencing budget strain, enrollment is at an all-time high, topping 1,500 students, and 42 percent of Manitou Springs students attend from outside the district. The high enrollment adds pressure to D-14's goals, Longfield said. "You have to be relevant for kids to choose to come to school here, and if you aren't, you're sort of like Kodak or RadioShack - you become less relevant and you have to close your doors," he said. "We really want to be responsive." Miami-Yoder School District JT-60 New superintendent Dwight Barnes is working to build relationships in the district and the community. He's hired several new staff, including a special education teacher, and will meet many families at the annual back-to-school barbecue Aug. 12. "We usually get a great response from the community," he said, "so I'll get a chance to network." Barnes came from nearby Falcon School District 49, where he was a high school assistant principal. He took over in Miami-Yoder July 1, after the school board in February terminated the contract of 10-year superintendent Richard "Rick" Walter. Barnes also is working as the district's secondary principal. "That's common for a lot of us out here on the plains, to be a principal and the superintendent," he said. A new reading program this year for elementary students "Core Knowledge Language Arts," will better align instruction with Common Core State Standards, Barnes said. Officials also will work on molding new graduation requirements impacting the class of 2021 into its system to "get ahead of the curve." The district is refinancing two bonds from 2005 and 2008, for a 7 percent, or $7,000 to $8,000 per year savings over the life of the bonds. The board will decide whether to pay off the bonds earlier with the extra money or return it to taxpayers, Barnes said. The district will replace two buses. Enrollment should be about the same as last school year, with about 280 students. Peyton School District 23-JT Big things are happening in this small eastern district. By the time school starts, the old Peyton Middle School will have a new mission as a woodworking, construction and automotive trades center. "With career technical education starting to resurface and having more importance, this is the right time and the right opportunity to reach students who want to go directly into the workforce after high school," said Superintendent Tim Kistler. The expansion is twofold. The district is bringing its first charter school on board, the Career Building Academy, which offers construction and automotive industry training. Last school year Peyton 23-JT contracted with the school to provide classes for its students and this year agreed to become the charter authorizer for the school, which has campuses in Peyton, Colorado Springs, Walsenburg and Pueblo. District 23-JT also is opening the Peyton Woods Manufacturing Program, which will offer entry level through advanced cabinet manufacturing for high school students. The Woods Manufacturing program originated in Salem, Ore., and became nationally renowned. Kistler initially hired the director, Dean Mattson, as a consultant to help figure out how to build a similar program in Peyton. Mattson now is serving as the director of the Peyton program. Students don't build standard shop projects like bird houses or tool boxes, Kistler said. "They're making furniture, curio cabinets and coffee tables with tapered legs and connecting dovetail drawers," he said. "The industry has gotten a lot more technical." Most of the equipment and materials are donated by manufacturing companies who hope to later hire graduates. "These machines are quite expensive, but we have companies willing to give in-kind donations to fill our facility because it's such a strong program," Kistler said. "We'll have over $2 million worth of machinery they'll let us use." Manufacturing workers are in demand, said Mark Schultz, a former 23-JT board member and owner of a millworking company. "There's definitely a shortage," he said. "It's gotten to where there's a whole generation missing out realizing you can make a living with the trades. Some kids just learn better with their hands." Woodworking incorporates principles of geometry and other math, reading, writing, drawing, teamwork and life applications, said Chris Harding, a 2014 graduate of the program in Oregon who is helping Peyton get its program going. The program is starting with about 40 students and will expand up to 120, including slots for students from other districts, Kistler said. Both the charter school and the woodworking program will be housed at the former Peyton Middle School, which is under renovation to construct a woodworking shop, reconfigured classrooms and replace the hail-damaged roof. The school has sat empty for six years, when the recession caused enrollment to drop enough that the district moved the middle school into the high school building. Kistler wants to build a national woodworking center to educate not only high school students but also adults, including military veterans looking for a new career. The expanded center could open in January 2017. Voters in November agreed to a second de-TABORing in 23-JT for seven years, meaning the district will seek grants and corporate donations. "Because of our decreasing student count, the direct money coming into the school was decreasing, and with TABOR limitations, we'd have to give the money from grants back to the state," Kistler said. A nonprofit foundation is being set up to handle contributions. Fall enrollment will be about 550 students and potentially grow to 650 with the new charter school. Widefield School District 3 A new STEM program will take center stage for sixth through 12th graders. The district received a $1.7 million grant from the U.S. Department of Defense Education Activity to implement Project Lead the Way, a national science, technology, engineering and math program. D-3 introduced the curriculum in its three junior high schools last school year with full roll out this fall, said Samantha Briggs, spokeswoman. Over the summer, 12 teachers received training in biomedical science and engineering education. About 400 students have enrolled in the program at D-3's two traditional high schools, Briggs said, adding that she expects the junior high classes to fill as well. The material is experiential and project-based, Briggs said. "It's going to be an amazing program that gives hands-on learning and problem-solving," she said. "A lot of parents are looking for schools that have strong STEM programs." D-3 is known for its pride, tradition and innovation, she said, with Project Lead the Way being an innovation development that will "get students out of the box in science and math." District leaders also are gearing up for a first-time Spring Showcase, scheduled for April 23, 2016. "We're more than a number," Briggs said. "Test scores tell one small part of our story, and we want people to see the culture and talent of our award-winning music program, award-winning Navy Junior ROTC cadets, Project Lead the Way robots and experiments, and other achievements." A redesigned district website that's more user-friendly and visually appealing debuted July 1. D-3, along with Fountain-Fort Carson D-8, completed a second annual charity golf tournament in July. This year's event raised about $13,000, which, through a 22-year-old nonprofit organization called Fountain Valley Scholars, will provide scholarships at Mesa Ridge, Widefield and Fountain-Fort Carson high schools. The awards ceremony will be May 10, 2016, at Mesa Ridge High. The district's annual Widefield community parade and rivalry football game between the town's two home teams will be held Oct. 10. "Every year, the town shuts down, and every school makes a float related to Rachel's Challenge (an anti-bullying program), and we throw out T-shirts and candy," Briggs said. District officials expect enrollment to remain steady, with 9,300 to 9,400 students, Briggs said. Woodland Park School District RE-2 The town mayor will be in the dugout, elementary students will dig in the dirt and homeschool kids will have more chances to be in class in RE-2. Mayor Neil Levy has been hired as the high school baseball head coach. "He's going to be a great addition to our staff," said RE-2 Superintendent Jed Bowman. "He's very passionate about youth and baseball, and he's going to bring an enthusiasm and expectation of excellence." An experiential program for elementary school students that kicked off last school year will continue this fall. Elevate Environmental Education, in partnership with the Catamount Institute, gives kindergarten through fifth graders hands-on science curriculum outdoors, at Aspen Valley Ranch. The 300-acre ranch near Woodland Park is used for educational purposes as a program of the Pikes Peak Community Foundation. "It's a fabulous addition. Students continually marvel at how great it is to be outside learning about science and the environment," Bowman said. New this year, the district's Homeschool Enrichment Academy is offering middle school students who are homeschooled the opportunity to take classes at Summit Elementary School and expanding elementary offerings at Summit and Gateway Elementary. "As education continues to evolve, flexibility for families is important," Bowman said, "and for homeschoolers, we provide one day a week where students can come in and have enrichment activities through our liaison teachers." Also, the concurrent enrollment program with Pikes Peak Community College is growing with the addition of college algebra to the list of classes students can take to earn college credit along with their high school diploma. Ashley Lawson, an instructional resource teacher at Woodland Park High, has been promoted to principal at Gateway Elementary. The RE-2 school board is exploring options for a "sustainable funding" proposal, including a possible ballot measure involving a sales tax increase. Enrollment is expected to decrease by 80 to 100 students this school year, for a total of about 2,400 pupils. "The fact that we're able to continue environmental education and free full-day kindergarten is significant," Bowman said. "They are not ongoing funds, they are funded year-to-year, so we are grateful to be able to do both." - Gazette reporter Ellie Mulder contributed to this report. ——— ©2015 The Gazette (Colorado Springs, Colo.)

OKLAHOMA ALUMNI TURNPIKE CHALLENGE SET FOR SATURDAY IN TULSA The Oklahoma Alumni Turnpike Challenge will reignite rivalries of old once again Saturday evening in Tulsa. Tulsa Washington High School will host the event, which begins at 5 p.m. with a game between Tulsa McLain and Star Spencer alums. Tulsa Washington and Douglass alumni will square off in the nightcap. Among the notable alumni expected to attend are former Oklahoma State star Leroy Combs of Star Spencer, Douglass standout and current head coach Kendal Cudjoe and Tulsa Washington’s R.W. McQuarters, who went on to play in the NFL. Shae Seals, who played at McLain and coached at Tulsa Washington, and William Tisdale are also expected to attend. Cudjoe played in the Douglass-Tulsa Washington rivalry in the 1970s under his father, legendary Douglass coach Lawrence Cudjoe. “This was the oldest and most popular rivalry in the state,” Kendal Cudjoe said. “It’s unfortunate that it had to end in football and basketball. It goes back as far as the 1930s.” Tulsa Washington alum Fred Jones has organized the event, which began four years ago. “We are celebrating 95 years of athletic tradition,” he said. “Both schools truly bleed orange and black. We will have plenty of former players from all schools in the building, so this will be an awesome night.” TOLEDO OFFERS HARRAH’S LOGAN ROBERSON Add Harrah offensive lineman Logan Roberson to the ever-growing list of Oklahoma players to add scholarship offers the past few weeks. Roberson was offered by Toledo on Wednesday, Harrah coach Phil Webb told The Oklahoman. The offer is the second for Roberson, who was offered by Arkansas State early in the offseason.

Teague, a left-handed hitter, hit the three-run blast off last week’s Player of the Week, Joe Buckendorff. He allowed five earned runs in just 11/3 innings of work. Teague finished 2 for 3 with four RBIs and three runs. The Rockets are now 8-8 and host Crossings Christian on Monday.

Better strategies sought to curb domestic violence
DAVID CRARY, Associated Press | Nov 16, 2014On a high school football field near Pittsburgh, an assistant coach tackled a topic unrelated to the upcoming game. "One of the biggest components of being a man is how you treat females," Kevin Murray told his players at Woodland Hills High. "We'd be doing you a very big disservice by not holding you accountable." At the jailhouse in High Point, North Carolina, a sterner version of that message is now given routinely to men detained for domestic-violence offenses and considered at risk of re-offending. "We're putting these guys on notice that domestic violence is not going to be tolerated here," said Police Chief Marty Sumner. "The message is very clear: 'We know who you are, we know what you're doing. It has to stop.'" The two programs target different audiences. But in the realm of domestic-violence prevention, where the record of success is spotty, they share a status as two of the nation's most promising initiatives. Coaching Boys Into Men is one of the flagship programs developed by Futures Without Violence, a nonprofit working to curb abuse of women and children. Thousands of high school coaches across the country, now joined by some middle school coaches, have received training in how to convey to their players the importance of treating young women with respect and avoiding abusive behavior. The program has attracted the notice of the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention. The federal agency funded a three-year evaluation, involving more than 2,000 high school athletes in Sacramento County, California, which found that participating players were more likely to intervene to stop abuse and less likely to perpetrate it. High Point's program — the Offender-Focused Domestic Violence Initiative — was conceived in 2009 based on an approach developed by David M. Kennedy, a professor at John Jay College of Criminal Justice in New York. While many programs focus on helping victims of domestic violence, High Point's initiative targets the offender with a strategy of aggressive deterrence. Since the program was fully implemented in 2012, the recidivism rate for domestic-violence offenders in High Point has been cut to about 9 percent, which the police department says is about one-third the national rate. There's been one intimate-partner homicide since 2009, compared to 17 between 2004 and 2008. "We'd get 5,000 domestic-violence calls a year — every year it's our No. 1 call," Chief Sumner said. "It gets passed on from generation to generation, but this program is a really good shot at breaking that cycle citywide." Efforts to raise awareness about domestic violence have been vigorously pursued in the U.S. for more than three decades. After Congress passed the Violence Against Women Act in 1994, domestic violence committed by intimate partners — current or former spouses, boyfriends or girlfriends — declined by more than 60 percent over the next 10 years. Since then, however, the numbers have stayed relatively flat. Even as incidents involving National Football League players and other pro athletes refocus attention on domestic violence, leading prevention advocates say more resources and smarter strategies are needed to combat it. "We now have a safety net for victims, we have the laws in place, judges who understand the seriousness of the issue," said Esta Soler, president of Futures Without Violence. "We need to do more to prevent the problems, not just treat the problems." For decades, so-called batterer intervention programs have been one of the main forms of prevention, with offenders participating in group sessions aimed at promoting non-abusive behavior. A range of local programs have won praise — such as Wisdom Walk, which focuses on African-American men in Milwaukee, and Caminar Latino, which runs a 24-week program for Latino men in Atlanta. However, research on the effectiveness of group intervention programs has produced mixed findings — causing some judges and probation officers to mandate that men participate, others saying there's no evidence of success. And what about the much-discussed programs in High Point and Pittsburgh? Here's a closer look at each: ___ The new regimen in High Point, a city of about 107,000, kicks into gear whenever police respond to a domestic disturbance call. Even if there's no arrest, and no previous record of domestic violence, the alleged aggressors receive another visit from a police officer within 48 hours and are notified that they are henceforth on a "watch list." With any subsequent domestic violence offense, there's an escalating series of consequences, including a face-to-face warning from a detective at the time of arrest and — for some repeat offenders — a summons to appear in person before a panel of police, prosecutors and members of the community. "In an hour, we explain how it's going to be different," Sumner said. "We will use any means to sanction you." The pressure tactics include threatening to classify any further domestic violence offense as a felony and to expedite prosecution of any other criminal case pending against the offender. Sumner's department has found that many domestic-violence offenders have a record of other violent crimes, and uses those records to help decide which targets of the program might deserve extra scrutiny. The community panel makes clear that the police will maintain their aggressive stance regardless of whether the offender's victim plays an active role in any future case or seeks to stay out of it. David Kennedy noted that in the traditional responses to domestic violence, the onus often was on the victim to report the abuse and testify about it in court, sometimes incurring threats and further violence in the process. "We wanted to be able to say to the offender, 'You're dealing with us, you're not dealing with her. The state is going to make you stop,'" Kennedy said. "The feedback from the women is, 'You've got his attention. Things are better. Keep it up, and keep me out of it.'" If victimized women do want services, they are offered through a Victim's Justice Center that opened in April. It's a one-stop site where victims can meet with police, get protective orders from legal aid attorneys, and be informed of other available services. "In the past, it was up to the victim to do all the work while dealing with the threats," said Tiffany Atkins, a domestic violence attorney with Legal Aid of North Carolina. "Now we take the responsibility." Sumner said his department has been able to implement the program without increasing its budget — primarily by adding some new training and reassigning two detectives to specialize in domestic-violence cases. Said Kennedy of the approach, "If you do it smart, it doesn't need to be costly." ___ If any high school was tailor-made for Coaching Boys Into Men, it might be Woodland Hills. It's a perennial football powerhouse in western Pennsylvania, sending many of its players on to major college teams and even to the NFL. It also serves a 12-town district that includes some of greater Pittsburgh's roughest neighborhoods. "The community of kids we deal with — there are a lot of broken homes," said Keith Davis, who attended the school and now, at 30, is in his third year on the football coaching staff. "A lot of players have seen where their father has beaten their mother, beaten their sister — it's no wonder they grow up the same way," Davis said. "The program — they're actually living it. In some schools, it might not hit home the way it did with us." Davis recalled how players followed news reports of the Steubenville, Ohio, case in which two high school football players were convicted last year of raping a 16-year-old girl after an alcohol-fueled party in 2012. "A lot of our guys came back and said, 'Coach, I've been in situations like that,'" Davis said. "We have to put a stop to it." Launched as a public service announcement campaign in 2001, Coaching Boys Into Men has since expanded to schools and coaches associations across the country — with new pilot programs this year involving coaches of 7th- and 8th-grade athletes. It's based on the premise that young athletes will take exhortations from their coaches seriously, and then — as role models among their peers — will be taken seriously by other students as they re-think their attitudes about relationships and abuse. "If you're a student athlete, you're also a student leader — respected by peers, by underclassmen, with a degree of influence and power," said Alan Johnson, superintendent of the Woodland Hills School District. "You can be a leader for good, or a leader for bad. You have to make the decision which kind you're going to be." One of the team's top linemen on offense and defense, 265-pound senior Daniel Gibson, said the players, by taking the program to heart, had indeed had an influence on other students. "Whatever we do, everyone else would like to do," he said. "They get off on our vibe" Another advocate of Coaching Boys Into Men is Wendell Say, head football coach for 35 years at Aiea High School near Honolulu. He's been using the program for five years — it's now a routine prelude to practices on Wednesdays. "The curriculum is simple — it just takes 15 minutes at most, unless you let the kids talk," Say said. "I sometimes take 45 minutes." Say says his players — many from low-income housing projects — often convey their firsthand knowledge of domestic violence. They've seen it in their family, or abused their own girlfriends, and they've also followed the domestic-violence cases involving Ray Rice and other NFL players. "We still have kids who make wrong choices," Say said. "But hopefully every year you learn more — a little understanding that just because you're stronger doesn't give you the right to hurt someone." The program — broken down thematically on a series of "training cards" — targets such behavior as catcalling and demeaning boasts about girlfriends. It also advises coaches on how to handle actual incidents of physical and sexual violence committed by team members. The ethos is summed up in a pledge to be taken by players and coaches: "I believe in treating women and girls with honor and respect. I know that violence is neither a solution nor a sign of strength. I believe that real men lead with conviction and speak out against violence against women and girls. I believe that I can be a role model to others by taking this pledge." ___ Online: Coaching Boys Into Men: http://www.coachescorner.org/ The High Point initiative: http://cops.usdoj.gov/html/dispatch/09-2014/a_different_response_to_ipv.asp ___ Follow David Crary on Twitter at http://twitter.com/CraryAP
