Corvallis School Leaders Slated for Public Q&A Session

For our next CitySpeak forum, local school district leaders will talk candidly about their concerns for education amid the pandemic – both for children and teachers – and what’s been driving their decision-making.   

Panelists include: 

Sami Al-Abdrabbuh, Corvallis School Board Chair 

Ryan Noss, Corvallis School Superintendent  

The school district announced last month that it would employ a hybrid model for reopening this year, and that for at least the first six weeks, classes would be conducted remotely. Al-Abdrabbuh and Noss will reflect on how this new class environment might impact student learning and social dynamics . We’ll also delve into the district’s initiatives to continue offering services to underprivileged students.  

 The free live forum will appear on The Advocate’s website and Facebook page, beginning at 6:30 p.m. on Tuesday, August 25. Viewers will also be able to ask questions during the Q&A portion of the live event.  

Questions for Abdrabbuh and Noss can be emailed to cityspeak@corvallisadvocate.com, or posted on our Facebook post of the event. After the livestream event, the video will be available on The Advocate’s website and social media.  

CitySpeak forums are co-presented by City Club of Corvallis, and sponsored by Peak Sports and First Alternative Natural Foods Co-op.
