The Blaine County Education Foundation will host a presentation on Thursday, Oct. 1, on "Preparing Today's Student's for a Changing World."

The event, set for 6-7:30 p.m. at Hemingway Elementary School in Ketchum, is described in a press release as a "conversation" between Blaine County School District Superintendent Lonnie Barber and Jim Warford, executive director of the Florida Association of School Administrators.

School Board Chairwoman Julie Dahlgren will moderate the conversation and "provide perspective on the school district's goal of becoming a model school district," the press release states.

The public is invited to the event, and to the foundation's Academics in Action tour scheduled for Tuesday, Oct. 6, from 8 a.m. until noon.

The tour will start at Bellevue Elementary School at 8 a.m. and at Carey School at 10 a.m. Barber will be the host. The tour is free and transportation will be provided to Carey School. Participants are advised to bring a lunch.

"This is a great opportunity to learn how your tax dollars support outstanding academic programs and how the district is working toward becoming a world-class model school system," said foundation Executive Director Heather Crocker.

For more information contract Crocker at 578-5449 or hcrocker@blaineschools.org. Information is also available at www.supportbcef.org.
