In an effort to secure school community involvement in the District planning process, Supt. Barb Rains is inviting parents, staff, and residents to become members of a Superintendent Advisory Committee for each of the four Board Goals for Student Achievement.
Board Goal #1 focuses on improving student achievement. The Goal 1 advisory meetings will be held on October 5, January 11, and March 14. The focus of the meetings will be to gain feedback on technology integration in student learning.
Board Goal #2 focuses on ensuring a safe, inspiring and welcoming environment. The Goal 2 advisory meetings will be held on October 19, January 6, and March 16. The focus of the meetings will be to gain feedback on our anti bullying program.
Board Goal #3 focuses on strengthening communications and connections. The Goal 3 advisory meetings will be held on October 21, December 7, and March 17. The focus of the meetings will be to gain feedback on school and district communication with our school community.
Board Goal #4 focuses on maximizing time, talent, and finances. The Goal 4 advisory meetings will be held on September 29, December 14, and February 16. The focus of the meetings will be to gain feedback on our analysis of District resources.
Meetings will be held from 6 p.m. to 7 p.m. at the Mary Drew Administrative Center. After each advisory meeting, meeting highlights will be shared with participants. As additional topics arise from the discussions, single topic subcommittees will be formed.
Interested parents, staff, and community members are asked to please e-mail Teri Witt at firstname.lastname@example.org by Monday, September 14, indicating your preference: Goal 1 Advisory, Goal 2 Advisory, Goal 3 Advisory, or Goal 4 Advisory.
