If we want an effective school system, we must have good attendance. Of course we know that student attendance in schools is directly related to student success. This same principle holds true for us as stakeholders. School, cluster and district meetings should be on our agendas.
In the classroom the ultimate engagement is to put the learner in-charge of learning. We, the community, have a duty to engage with our schools to support the learning process. Whether it is providing needed resources or collaborating on a project or plans for the future, our commitment to engage is key.
Over the past three years, we have seen positive incremental change in our district. If we want to continue to develop the systemic change needed to create a vibrant and successful district, we can do so by attending and engaging.
