THE LION'S ROAR UPDATE
The overall consensus among all 3 stakeholder groups was: "keep the calendar the same for THIS YEAR; however, plan ahead to recognize Juneteenth Day in 2022 - 2023."
Although the District will not be moving our LHS Graduation or closing schools on Friday, June 17, 2022, we are going to honor this day in our schools. During our planning discussions, our DEI believes it is very important for us to take this work seriously and invest the time to do it right. So, in year one, our focus will be on education: education of staff and education of students. We are also investigating age appropriate text at this time, too, for educational purposes. Juneteenth Day is not a holiday that has been taught throughout the grade levels in previous years. This will be a change we are happy to make. We are also currently planning how to grow from this year one, starting point.
I sincerely thank everyone for taking time to respond. It really is important to the district to share your voice directly with the school whenever you can.
DUE: Friday, April 29th
Your input WILL be used in future goal-setting for the District. At the end of the survey there is an "other" box which will allow you to provide add any additional feedback such as: goals, desired courses/programs, questions, concerns, etc. If there is something we didn't ask, but you wish we did, please provide that feedback, too.
