Equidad y justicia social en Boone

Todos los miembros de la comunidad de Boone están invitados a participar en los próximos talleres con la Dra. Carole Collins Ayanlaja, socia de CPS Equity. Estos talleres explorarán más a fondo los diferentes dominios de nuestros estándares de justicia social: identidad, diversidad, justicia y acción. Los participantes tendrán la oportunidad de dar su opinión mientras construimos nuestros acuerdos comunitarios para implementar estos estándares y promover la equidad y la justicia social en Boone.


Nuestro próximo taller, que se centrará en el dominio de la diversidad, se llevará a cabo el próximo martes 15 de diciembre a las 4:30 PM. Haga clic aquí para solicitar el enlace de la reunión y se le enviará. También hay un enlace aquí a un formulario de reflexión sobre el Dominio de la diversidad que le invitamos a obtener una vista previa, ya que lo usaremos para fundamentar nuestra discusión.


Los talleres adicionales de esta serie se llevarán a cabo el 19 de enero y el 16 de febrero. Todas las sesiones son de 4: 30-5: 30PM.

Necesitamos Su Ayuda

Ayude al Sr. Chi con su informe de inventario llenando este formulario de Google. Este informe, que es requerido por CPS y se realiza cada primavera, se retrasó debido a la pandemia de COVID-19. Dado que nos acercamos al final del año, CPS está pidiendo a todas las escuelas que realicen este proceso antes de que nos vayamos para las vacaciones de invierno. Casi todos nuestros dispositivos están actualmente en manos de los estudiantes y el personal de Boone.


Si su hijo (a) está utilizando algún dispositivo de Boone para el aprendizaje remoto, siga las instrucciones del formulario y envíelo antes del lunes 14 de diciembre. Tenga en cuenta que el formulario solo funciona con las cuentas de correo electrónico de CPS, que tienen todos nuestros estudiantes. No dude en enviar un correo electrónico al Sr. Chi (ptchi@cps.edu) si tiene alguna pregunta adicional.

Parent Portal

Parent Portal gives parents the ability to view students' grades in real time. If you are setting up your Parent Portal account for the first time, please visit the First Time Parent Portal Set-Up link. This is a one-time step and not necessary after every school year. Once you receive your email from Aspen to help set up your username and password, you can access Parent Portal at Aspen Parent Portal.


If you already have a Parent Portal account, but are running into technical issues (forgot password, locked out, etc), please email Boone's tech coordinator Patrick Chi (ptchi@cps.edu) so he can reset your account. Once your account is reset, you should receive an email from Aspen with further instructions. Additional information provided by the district can be found at this link.
