As we get close to the end of this school year and start to think about writing our committee's final report to the district, we would like to hear your thoughts about how things are going.
Please drop us an email and consider the following:
All communications will be kept confidential within the committee [and] will inform the issues we write about this year and address for next year. Thanks for your time and support.
- Are things different now than they were at the beginning of the year?
- What's working, what's good?
- What's not working, what needs addressing?
- What are your concerns for next year?
- How can our committee do what we do better?
- What was most helpful/important to you that the APP AC did this year?
(e.g. hold monthly meetings, send monthly meeting minutes, send email updates, host middle school transition meeting, send out school announcements like tour dates/etc., forward emails from other groups/gifted ed/legislative info, support 2E meetings, respond to individual email questions, advocate behind the scenes on issues, work with district/building staff, generally keep the community informed?)
