Quite the discussion here about equity - I'm hoping to make Director Geary's community meeting today from 4-6 pm at the NE Library to get her insights on the use of the Racial Equity Analysis Tool. It could mean sweeping changes in how resources are allocated, services delivered and what focus there is in the classroom.
The district's home page has new links on the right on bell times, kindergarten and the 2016-2017 calendar. As well, on the same page, they are still asking for input on the website.
Also from the district, the three finalists for K-5 Language Arts curriculum. As I previously reported, two of these are beyond the $3M budget but it was unclear which two those are. I'll ask.
Good (and sweet) news from the Times - Kimball Elementary had a read-a-thon to raise money for new books for their library. They exceeded their goal of $3,000, raising over $6,000. They decided to give a portion of the extra funds, $1,000, to Van Asselt students for their library. Van Asselt is about three miles from Kimball. Kimball's own starting library fund of $2,000 had come from PTA funds.
What's on your mind?
