Bossier Parish is gearing up for the new school year with a few events.
BOSSIER PARISH, LA (KSLA) -
There are some events happening that you might be interested in attending before the start of this school year in Bossier Parish.
Bossier schools open for the 2014-15 school year on Aug. 7, with Kindergartners starting a week later on Aug. 14.
On Aug. 4-6, teachers, bus drivers and school resource officers will attend in-service workshops. On Aug. 4, state Rep. Henry Burns (R-Haughton) will address about 400 drivers, aides and substitute drivers to clarify House Bill 600.
This legislation directs how children should be picked up and dropped off at bus stops. Bossier schools are in compliance with this bill.
The meeting will be held at 8 a.m. at Bossier High School, 777 Bearkat Drive.
Coming up on Aug. 7, students - except for Kindergartners - will head back to school for a full day of learning.
That same day, at 7 p.m., the Bossier School Board is gathering for its first meeting of the new school year. The board plans to recognize Louisiana High School Teacher of the Year, Dr. Anita Szombathelyi.
Benton Elementary's Archery Team will also be recognized for it's spot at the world championship, and Military Student Transition Consultant Georgette Price will be honored for receiving the Military Child Education Coalition's 2014 Pete Taylor Partnership of Excellence Award.
