Orion Alternative Move to Gill

A message from Dr. Baker:

Dear John Gill and Orion Alternative communities,

I am pleased to let you know that your representatives, the transition team, held last week what I believe was a very successful first meeting.

As I have shared in the past, notes from these meetings would be disseminated to both communities and you can find those notes from this first meeting attached here.

The individuals who represent you as part of this very important group are both John Gill and Orion Alternative parents and teachers. Principal Rivera is also part of this meeting as she will be leading both communities as they become one family next school year.

I am grateful to the deputy superintendent from the San Mateo County Office of Education and its administrator for strategy and communications for guiding this work.

John Baker
