Announcing new "Engage Tahoma" sessions

Announcing new "Engage Tahoma" sessions
Posted on 12/03/2018
Tahoma School District is embarking upon a program to engage directly with community members to provide information and spark conversations around school issues.

The new outreach effort will be launched in early 2019 and is called “Engage Tahoma.” Initial plans call for up to three discussion topics each school year. The first two sessions will occur sometime in the second half of this school year, and will focus on school finance and classroom technology. Future topics for Engage Tahoma will be determined later and could be chosen based upon results from a school district survey of parents and community members that will happen this spring. Details on dates and times for the first two sessions will be announced in January.

Engage Tahoma is being created as a way for the district and School Board to be in more direct contact with the community to improve communication and understanding by providing information and gathering community comments and perspectives.

Board Member Didem Pierson voiced her approval of the proposal during the Nov. 20 work-study session when it was presented. “Aren’t we better together?” she said. “To me, that’s what it’s all about.”

The format is to have two meetings per topic, lasting 90 minutes each. The first meeting would be to provide information about the topic and the second meeting would focus on discussion of the topic. The meetings are open to all community members, who will be divided into table discussion groups so that everyone has a chance to be heard. School Board members and district staff will attend each meeting.
