PLEASE USE THIS LINK TO RESPOND 

TO OUR PARENT SURVEY!

 

https://goo.gl/forms/Nu1sMOw6p7AQTi9K2

 

We hope to receive one completed survey from each household in the district.

 

This survey will be active from Monday, Oct 30 through Monday, Nov 6.

 

BACKGROUND:

Our District has been conducting an inquiry into the dual-program system we have (i.e. Traditional & Enrich! programs). The Enrich! program has grown over the years from just 40 students, to now serving just over half the students in the District. We want to make sure that this system still serves our community, or is it time to evolve again -- maybe to just one magnet program for all? As part of that inquiry process, our GUSD Board established a stakeholder committee that includes representatives including: teachers, administrators, MPF, GSF, and GUSD Board members.

 

The committee is exploring a pilot for a new program called "Kindergarten Discovery" that unifies the best of the Traditional and Enrich! programs into one program that would serve all students in the kindergarten level.

 

We would like to take a moment to check in and learn more about the level of parent satisfaction with the program(s) that serve their children currently. We are also seeking your help to design the Kindergarten Discovery program. So the committee has developed a parent survey. 

 

We will also have computers available on each school campus for parents who prefer to take the electronic survey at school. On the Gravenstein campus, the survey will be available in the computer lab. At Hillcrest, just check in to the school office for computer access.

 

The stakeholder committee is meeting on a weekly basis, and will soon release a similar survey designed for teacher input. Stay tuned! Our goal is to have the Kindergarten Discovery proposal to the GUSD Board for approval by December 2017.

 

 

Have a great week!

 

Mrs. Schwinn
