Student Council's Anderson Animal Shelter Collection Day
On Friday, March 18th, Student Council will be sponsoring a collection day for Anderson Animal Shelter, and would love to get all of Corron involved! Wear your best “animal apparel” to school (stripes, dots, animal print, etc.) while you donate items for the animals. A collection table will be set up in the front foyer. Some items the shelter needs are already around your home, such as newspapers, paper towels, or old bath towels! You can also click on this link for more ideas:
Equity Audit Parent Focus Groups:
As part of the district’s equity audit, parent 1 hour focus groups will be held across the district via Zoom during the month of April to give families an opportunity to share their thoughts on our district’s strengths, areas of need, and long-term opportunities for providing the best educational experience for all students. Focus groups will be constructed and led by our partners in the equity audit process- the Consortium for Educational Change (CEC). There will be morning and evening focus groups available for parents. Every school’s goal is to have 15 families agree to participate in a focus group. During the week of March 21st, a member of our school staff will begin calling parents from a document with families’ names listed in random order to invite prospective participants to be part of a focus group. All parents are welcome to email your own written responses to the focus group questions to CEC should you not be selected to participate in a focus group but desire to share your opinions (A list of the focus group questions and a place for submitting your answers to them will be posted on the district website beginning April 4th). We thank you for your commitment to equity in education, and we are excited about this next step in gathering the voices of our district so that we can create a comprehensive plan to move forward. If you have any questions regarding the focus group process, please contact our Director of Diversity, Equity, & Inclusion, Dr. Tracy Taylor, at firstname.lastname@example.org.
