AAUW November Event
Innovation & Change in Petaluma Education
Thursday, November 13th, 7pm
200 Douglas St. -- Board Room
Education is being reshaped for students and teachers alike as rapid advances in information technology and easy access to the Internet are reshaping educational institutions. Join us for an educational forum about the changing face of education and how these changes impact our schools and our community.
A panel of PCS professionals—including Superintendent Steve Bolman, Asst. Superintendent of Ed. Services Jane Escobedo, a teacher and a principal—will discuss important changes in education, specifically Technology, the Common Core and how the proposed improvements funded by the recently passed bond will be implemented.

AAUW’s Education Legacy at COTS
Thursday, November 13th, 11:30am
For COTS, the AAUW Education Fund is the only discretionary fund that can assist with unmet needs such as bus passes, textbooks, and test fees. For example, Samantha became homeless a few years ago after fleeing an abusive relationship. Due to a limited work history, she struggled to find employment, but began studying for an AS in Natural Sciences at SRJC. Now in her final semester, Samantha has already obtained part-time work in a veterinary office. With the AAUW scholarship, she purchased her semester books and parking pass.
Please RSVP for this fundraiser by November 5th. For those of you unable to attend and wishing to support AAUW’s fund, you may make a direct donation to COTS specifying the COTS/AAUW Education Fund or send a check to Kathleen Garvey at 83 Maria Drive, 94954. Questions? Please call Kathleen at (415) 728-7510.
