American Education Week, November 18-22 Dear Editor, American Education Week is Nov. 18-22. This is a time to celebrate the outstanding work done in our public schools. Ameri- ca's public school teachers equip our youngsters with many skills. They teach students to read and do math. They teach children history and science. They help them learn how to solve problems, resolve conflicts and cooperate with each 'other--skills that are critical in shap- ing the future of America. Teachers care about how and what their students learn. Teachers want all of them to succeed. Just like you--their parents and community members. American Education Week is a time for celebrat- ing the crucial differences that educators, education support professionals and substitute teachers make in young lives. American Education Week's celebra- tion days include: Monday, Nov. 18, Kickoff Day. Tuesday, Nov. 19, Par- ents' Day--schools invite parents into the classroom for a hands-on experience of what the day is like for their child. Wednesday, Nov. 20, Education Support Profes- sionals Day--individuals who provide invaluable services to schools are rec- ognized for their outstand- ing work. Thursday, Nov. 21, Edu- cator for a Day--commu- nity leaders are invited to serve as educators to get a glimpse at a day in the life of a school employee. Letter to the Editor Friday, Nov. 22, Substi- tute Educators Day--this day honors the educators who are called upon to re- place regularly employed teachers. The SW/WC Service Co- operative has 55 public school district members. We are honored to provide a variety of programs and services to them. We en- courage our communities to take time to thank our school boards, our admin- istrators, our teachers and everyone who works to make Minnesota an educa- tion leader in the nation! Sincerely, Cliff Carmody, Executive Director SW/WC Service Cooperative, Marshall Parents face the "Point of Impact" in new driver's education tool Parents of teen driv- ers are the focus of a new Minnesota Department of Public Safety (DPS) Office of Traffic Safety education program that aims to teach parents the important role they play in developing safer teen drivers. The Point of Impact pro- gram will be made avail- able to communities and driver's education schools statewide with the pri- mary purpose of bringing parents into the driver's education classroom with their teens for a one-night course. Driver's education instructors, local law en- forcement officers, EMTs and others help present the program. A main component of Point of Impact is an eight- minute video that presents stories of Minnesotans impacted by crashes that involved teen drivers--a young woman from Detroit Lakes who suffered a seri- ous brain injury, a woman left paralyzed from a crash years ago when she was 15 years old, and a Manka- to police officer whose father was seriously in- jured in a crash involving a teen asleep at the wheel.

"We need to break the mindset of parents that a newly licensed teen driver is a safe driver," says Gordy Pehrson, DPS Office of Traffic Safety youth driv- ing programs coordina- tor. "The Point of Impact program educates parents that the safety of their teen behind the wheel is up to them. Our goal is to make parents aware that, while it may be convenient for their teen to drive them- selves, that convenience can't be put ahead of safe- ty." Among the key points Point of Impact stresses are for parents to: Provide significant su- pervised driving training and continue to do so after they are licensed, especial- ly during the potentially dangerous first year of li- censure. Train teen on a variety of road types (city, high- way, rural) and conditions (night, snow, rain). Reinforce teen driving laws such as belt use (front and back seats), passenger and nighttime driving lim- itations, no cell phone use and no texting/email/Web access (including when stopped in traffic). Use a driving contract to set family driving rules and follow through with consequences. Encourage teen to speak up when they feel unsafe in a vehicle to stop unsafe driving behaviors. Traffic crashes are the leading killer of Minnesota teens--102 teen motor ve- hicle occupants were killed in the state during 2010- 2012. Inexperience, dis- tractions, risk taking and poor seat belt compliance are the primary factors for teen traffic tragedies. Home of the Knights!

We had an excellent turnout. No mat- ter if your person won or lost, the students were the big winners with the high turnout, considering the snow on Election Day. The high turnout shows the support for the schools and the desire to continue high quality education for all the students. I want to congratulate those elected to the RTR School Board: Peggy Dunblazier, Pat O'Toole and Terry Gordon. In recent years, schools have taken a big hit with finances and things like arts programs have been disappearing at an alarm- ing rate. According to the Superintendent Notes By Bruce Houck RTR Schools Superintendent Legislative Analyst's Of- rice, 60 percent of school districts surveyed have cut arts programs and another 20 percent have eliminat- ed them altogether. At RTR we have had school board members who have been able to plan ahead and keep courses in grades I(-12 like art and physical education. Voting has become a privilege that far too many Americans take for grant- ed. Thank you to all who voted in the last school board election.
