Message from Dr. Hoernemann:
First Community Engagement Session-Big Success!
Thanks to all those who attended Community Engagement Session #1 on Monday evening and to those who watched at home or have viewed the recording. If you missed it and wish to see the recording, click here. We have also posted the PowerPoint presentation which you can find here.
The next session will be held on Monday, Nov. 27 from 5:30-7:00 p.m. at Avon Middle School South (Door 28). Although we will briefly review some of the material from the first presentation, we will also delve into some of the issues the audience spoke about. It is important to emphasize the fact that no decisions have been made about next steps. Indeed the Board and administration welcomes input from all stakeholders about your priorities. One gentleman asked what the price tag is to do all that we want (address class size, caseloads, competitive pay, restore and/or expand curricular, extra-curricular and athletic opportunities and many other topics that emerged.) We cannot answer that question without gaining a great deal more input/perspective from all. There will be multiple opportunities over the next couple months to get engaged.
We are grateful for the support shown to date and look forward to further conversation.
