WORST-CASE SCENARIO: Officers hone anti-shooter skills at Northern High

Northern High School training gives officers a glimpse at what would if an intruder were to access a school or any other building and open fire. Officers were being trained to enter a room, recognize the source of the threat and appropriately apply force.

In budget, protecting instruction is top priority

At this time every year, principals and school system administrators start trying to read tea leaves in addition to our regular duties. As educators, we are focused on teaching and learning: how we can accelerate our students’ performance, motivate and engage them and their families, and ensure that every school is supporting them. But we are now in budget season, and we must plan for the coming year knowing our students’ and schools’ needs — but trying to predict the amount of funding available to meet them.

Duke delivers!

Get a new banner ready for the Cameron Indoor Stadium rafters.

No. 4 Duke survived a rough shooting day to outlast Gonzaga 66-52 in the NCAA Tournament South Regional final Sunday at NRG Stadium.

The Blue Devils (33-4) claimed a spot in the Final Four, the 16th Final Four appearance in school history and the first for Duke since 2010.  No one on Duke’s current roster had been to a Final Four or won an ACC championship, but sophomore guard Matt Jones and freshman Justise Winslow were instrumental in ending in that drought on Sunday.
