Seattle Schools This Week

Tuesday, September 27th
Growth Boundaries Information Meeting, Hamilton IMS from 6:30-7:30 pm. 

Wednesday, September 28th
Board Work Session from 4:30-6:45 pm.
Topic 1 from 4:30-5:15 pm - Executive Directors of Schools
Topic 2 from 5:15-6:45 pm - 24 Credit Graduation Requirement Implementation- Board Policy Review and Revision.

I'm not exactly sure what can be said about the role of executive directors but, from my own experience and listening to readers, I'm not sure they serve a great purpose.  It is more than a bit surprising that parents are told to go to executive directors if they cannot solve an issue with a principal and not one single parent has ever told me it helped. 

State Superintendent Forum at Town Hall.  Tickets are $10 and doors open at 6:15 pm with the debate starting at 7 pm.  The debate is sponsored by Arc of King County and Washington Autism Alliance and Advocacy.  The theme is Diversity and Inclusion in Our Schools and the debate will be moderated by Dr. Illene Schwartz, UW professor of early childhood and special education.

Thursday, September 29th
Growth Boundaries Information Meeting, Mercer IMS from 6:30-7:30 pm

Saturday, Oct. 1
Community meeting with Director Rick Burke at the Greenwood Library from 3:30-5:00 pm.
