You're invited: Board Goals 2025 Cafe
Posted on 01/08/2021
Dear Tahoma Community,

We’re reaching out today with a special invitation. At the end of 2020, we asked you to participate in a survey to help shape the School Board’s -- and district’s -- focus for the next five years. Now we’re inviting you to the next step in that process: a virtual Board Goals 2025 Cafe, from 6-8 p.m. on Wednesday, Feb. 3. We know that you’re busy, and it’s hard to dedicate two hours on a weeknight, but we think you would agree that Tahoma students are worth the investment of your time (and ours)!

The parents/guardians, students, staff and community members who completed the survey indicated that the top four areas that are most important for student success, and most in need of improvement are:
• Mental health support for students;
• Student & staff experiences regarding cultural understanding, diversity and equity;
• School climate and culture to build healthy relationships and effective collaboration and partnership;
• High expectations for student growth and academic success.

The cafe is the next strategy that we will use to understand what the district’s stakeholders mean when they say they want an improvement in one of these areas for student success, said Dawn Wakeley, Executive Director of Teaching and Learning. Other strategies that may be used after the initial cafe include focus groups, listening sessions, cafe sessions on a specific topic, meetings with specific focus groups such as the Equity Committee, Technology Advisory Committee or COVID-19 Task Force.

During the cafe, we will hear an introduction and welcome, then work together in Zoom breakout rooms. If you would like to participate that evening by sharing your thoughts and ideas with us, please click here to register.

We look forward to working with you and connecting virtually at the cafe!

Sincerely,
Tahoma School District
