On October 11, 2017 and to coincide with my 100th day as Superintendent of Jeffco Public Schools, we released a document called Jeffco Generations: A Learning-Centered Vision for our Community’s Schools. Since then, we’ve also added translated versions of the document, as well as support materials including a 4-page summary brochure and a poster of the Generations skills.
Generations was released as an idea and conversation starter, with the intent that our schools and community engage with the document and vet the ideas presented. Over this next month, we’ll be taking the time to gather feedback and hear from a variety of community groups.
In early December, the Board of Education will meet to consider creating a new strategic plan and accompanying measurable goals.
One way I hope to gather feedback and encourage conversation is through this blog. Please let me know your thoughts on the document through responding to one, two, or all three of the following questions.
- What did you like (and why)?
- What is missing (and why should it be included)?
- What questions remain?
I will be monitoring this posting and will work to respond to comments as I am able. To be sure, I will read and make note of every single one to make them part of our conversation with the Board as we move toward a new strategic plan.
So, jump in Jeffco! Let me know what you think, and please encourage others to jump in as well!
