Thanks to Chair Colin, the rest of Council, and Principal Sader for the opportunity to participate in tonight’s meeting. It was great to learn the school’s fantastic results for the past year, and see the video on student portfolios.  As I did at Hillcrest and Michael A. Kostek, I asked about the idea of using SchoolZone for trustee / parent communications.  The Council was very supportive and the valuable feedback they provided included:

– make sure it is 2-way communication

– use it as a means to explain what the Board did with the parental input received

– if pop-up notifications for “what’s new” upon login is not feasible, provide notification through the school calendar, newsletter, or other channels.

Speaking of parental engagement, check-out the turnout in the photo below (20 plus parents a meeting)!
