The EWSD Voices for Education (VFE) group met on Monday, February 18 to discuss takeaways from the Community Celebration and to start planning for 2019.
Key takeaways from the meeting included:
The group analyzed the feedback received from the Community Celebration held in January to see what stood out as the top priorities among the community. Holding community conversations/workshops and establishing and equity advisory group drew the most support and are two areas that Voices will continue to work on going forward.
The group began to map out the work of Voices in 2019 and visualized the overlap in work between VFE, the EWSD Board, and EWSD administration.
As the District moves forward, EWSD budgeting decisions will be made with a framework around equity and this is an area that VFE can assist the Board and administrators in helping explain these connections to families and the community.
The next regularly scheduled meeting will take place on Monday, March 18 starting at 5:30 p.m. in the EHS Library.
