What does it feel like to have a disability? The Margaret Mead Elementary School PTSA wanted students to be able to empathize with their peers who face mobility, learning or other challenges. As part of Disability Awareness Month, they set up a Disability Awareness Fair with eight learning stations.
These groups provide input on major issues or decisions facing the district. They often include a mix of parents, community members, and staff members, such as principals.
College & Career Readiness Task Force - Analyzes and makes recommendations regarding options for grades 9-12.
Long-Term Facilities Task Force - Recommends long-term facilities strategy to the School Board. Report recommendations, accepted by the board in November 2015, became the basis for a planned set of bond measures.
School/Home Communications Task Force - Explores best practices in school communication with families.
School Start Time Advisory - Reviews potential school start time options, continue to engage stakeholders in input and feedback processes, and will ultimately make a recommendation for school start and dismissal times.
