CAO's Plans for Family Input and Involvement
One reason is that our CAO, Carla Santorno, is thinking about how to involve families in meaningful ways. Below (shared with Carla's permission) is a description of some of her plans in this area.
"I plan to start parent critical friend groups that can assist in giving a real life lens into the issues each of our schools face. That is in addition to a student panel that will represent each of our high schools.
Additionally, we will publish "what you need to know" booklets for each grade level K - 8 , and for each subject in high school. Then the community and families can take a stronger role in providing feedback about classroom instruction.
I will work on that as soon as we complete a curriculum audit to clearly align our EALRS and GLEs k-12."
