Notepad with Community Conversation written on it

Hello EWSD Community,

The EWSD Board will set aside our next regular business meeting to create space for community engagement. During regular board meetings, the protocols for public comment prior to scheduled agenda items do not permit two-way dialogue with the community. While this is necessary, given board norms and time constraints, we value the opportunity for community conversation. Therefore, we continue to develop specific times and spaces for this purpose intentionally. 

Recently, the Board and community members have undergone strategic visioning through the Portrait of a Graduate process; clearly defining what qualities we envision our students to display when they graduate. We, as a Board, greatly appreciated the engagement from community members. This next opportunity for community engagement will include open dialogue as well as focused time for updates and discussion around the future of our facilities.

Please join us as we strive to partner together with transparency, curiosity, positive intent, and passion for supporting the future of our students in our community. 

Date: June 6, 2023
Location: Essex High School Library
Time: 6:30-8:30 p.m.

Hope to see you there on June 6!

Robert Carpenter
EWSD Board Chair
