Obama's back to school address

President Barack Obama will address the nation's students Tuesday with a speech designed to help them get "focused and inspired to begin the new academic year."

Read my local coverage of the event here.

According to the Department of Education, he'll be challenging students to work hard, set educational goals and take responsibility for their learning.

The speech will be broadcast at noon at the White House's Web site and on C-SPAN.

The Department of Education has also made the speech available for schools to show via satellite.

Since Saratoga Springs City schools don't start up until Wednesday, I'm not sure what, if anything, the district may do to provide students with access to the speech or followup with discussion/activities.

The first board meeting of the school year is scheduled for 7:30 p.m. at the Geyser Road Elementary School, so I expect to hear about it then. Find coverage of the board meeting here.
