Has your son asked you to “press pause?” Have you heard your daughter say that something is “above the line?” Are you wondering what it all means? Lakota Local Schools is offering parents two opportunities to learn what E+R=O is all about and why we are teaching it district-wide.

Event plus Response equals Outcome, also known as the R Factor, teaches students and staff that while a person cannot control an event, they can control their response. This in turn will affect the outcome. The R Factor is taught throughout the district, providing a common language for students as they continue their education.

Lakota will present the one-hour training for parents on two separate evenings:

  • Oct. 25, 6:30 p.m. at Lakota West

  • Nov. 8, 6:30 p.m. at Lakota East

Assistant Superintendent Robb Vogelmann views the R Factor training opportunities for parents to be similar to curriculum nights. “As we work on establishing our District culture, we want to bring parents along the journey with us,” he explains. “We want to allow the parents an opportunity to see the resources we are using.” Vogelmann also hopes that parents are noticing pieces of the R Factor around their children’s schools. “Hopefully this evening will help explain what parents are seeing and explain why we are using R Factor training for staff and students.”

Each session will last one hour. View the event flyer to learn more about the upcoming E+R=O trainings.
