CORVALLIS SCHOOLS & COVID, Tue, August 25, 6:30 pm

CitySpeak Pic_SchoolsFor our next CitySpeak forum, Corvallis School Superintendent Ryan Noss and School Board Chair Sami Al-Abdrabbuh discuss education and student social dynamics amid a pandemic, they will also field questions from the public.

You can anticipate a candid conversation about their concerns for education in the current circumstances – both for children and teachers – and what’s been driving their decision-making.

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, or posted on The Advocate’s 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 The Corvallis Advocate, and sponsored by Peak Sports and First Alternative Natural Foods Co-op.
