Twin Peaks Middle School

Weekly RAM Newsletter

A Brief Note from Dr. Burke

Dear RAM families,


Scanning below, you will see that there are many events and activities occurring on campus this week, along with a couple of restaurant fundraisers. There is one in particular to which I wish to draw your attention. The Poway Unified annual Local Control Accountability Plan (LCAP) forums begin this week and we are fortunate to host one right here at Twin Peaks on Tuesday evening at 6PM in the library. I will be here, and I invite you to join me.


The LCAP forums are events at which district personnel seek input from the community regarding priorities for our educational programs and supports. This year, they are switching things up a bit, by using a crowdsourcing platform called ThoughtExchange to secure your input. This medium allows you to anonymously share your thoughts, see the thoughts of others, and prioritize the thoughts most important to you. Our single guiding question is: What are the most important things to focus on as we continue our work to support all students?


If you are unable to attend Tuesday's event, feel free to attend one of the other forums taking place on Wednesday at Rancho Bernardo High School and Thursday, at Oak Valley Middle School. We even have a Spanish version on Thursday at Valley Elementary. All of these take place at 6PM. But wait, there's more...if you can't attend any of the forums, you can still participate from the comfort of your own home, office, car...wherever you choose; all you need is computer access or a smartphone. Here is the link to join: https://my.thoughtexchange.com/?lang=en#249988329



I hope you will take the time to share your thoughts. Your perspectives are truly valued, and help us to improve the ways in which we serve you and your children.


I look forward to seeing all our students tomorrow, and remember, it's a 1/3/5 day.


Sincerely,


Dr. Burke
