    Participant Feedback
    “...I was very impressed with the students and can see why you wanted at least half of the committee to be made up of students. It is their experience we want to improve, so insight from them is the most important to hear. I liked how you took a strong stance on "this is not political. This is not controversial" and appreciated that you set the expectation of being open and engaged and not pushing any particular agenda. I also think that your message about transparency came across well. …”

    November's focus: Culture and Climate and Curriculum and Instruction (English Learners).

    About 15 people attended and discussed the importance of student support and building signage, in addition to curriculum (what we teach) and instruction (how we teach). These topics were all brought up through the lens of student connectedness and the need to have capable, caring adults available to work with students.
