SCHOOL DISTRICT GOALS:
Capital Project Update
- This week I started a second round of meeting with groups of students from our different schools. I had the pleasure of having lunch with six students from our Choice/Big Picture Program on Wednesday. I was impressed with how aware they were of their academic and social-emotional learning, and how articulate they were about how they had grown through their experience in the Choice HS. On Thursday I met with 5 HS students. We had a great discussion about their school experiences. The group shared many insights into what worked for them and what did not in their schooling experience.
- Our audit is near completion. The audit exit meeting is on May 30th at 2:00 PM.
