At long last the District is ready to hire a Coordinator of Family and Community Engagement. This person will be responsible for developing, implementing, coordinating, and aligning the District's family involvement and community engagement activities and efforts in collaboration with other District staff within programs and schools. This constitutes a quarter of the Strategic Framework released in the Fall. Since no one has been in this position, that work has not been started yet. While I don't know the reason for the delay, I'm sure that every day of it was absolutely necessary.
I have contacted Lin Carlson and volunteered to serve on the hiring committee for this position. I strongly encourage others to do the same. Of course the District will want to have lots of community members serving on the hiring committee for the community engagement job. Please, please, please, offer to serve on the hiring committee for this job.
