December 6 – High School Feedback: Listening Session

Note that this is a Thursday.

For our December meeting, we are looking for families with kids in any of LWSD high schools, to participate in a listening session. The purpose of the session is to understand the high school experiences of students who were in the Quest program through middle school. Our goal is to identify what is working well, and what are areas for improvement, in the current LWSD high school offerings. If you are a family with a high schooler who would like to speak about your experiences, please sign up here

Elementary and middle school families are welcome to participate as listeners at the December session, and to provide written feedback.
