October Count Day - 10/1

P.A.S.S. Meeting - October 7th

Dry Creek P.A.S.S. Committee will meet via Micorsoft Teams on October 7, 2020 from 6:00-7:00pm. P.A.S.S. stands for Partnerships for Academically Successful Students. It is a committee comprised of parents, Dry Creek staff, and community members. We are looking for parents who are interested in joining the P.A.S.S. committee. The purpose of P.A.S.S. is to support the district's goal of Inclusive Excellence and is a critical component of systemic equity transformation. P.A.S.S. provides a structure to build relationships between the school and parents in an effort to create an inclusive learning environment for all students. P.A.S.S. also gives parents and guardians of students of color voice and direct access to the administration and staff.
