Wednesdays at Houlihans: Dec 7th

In an attempt to drum up some conversation starters and discussion, I am going to suggest a topic of High School options and a more “rigorous” curriculum.

 

To the first, Unit 4 is really trying to gather feedback on what community members want. Do we want a 3rd high school? Where? Do we want a “prep academy” (8th and 9th grade at one campus, 10th-12th grade at the other)? Or do we want to commit to the minimal amount of work to keep the roofs from falling down?

 

The second topic is closely related, IMO, especially if we consider the prep academy. It seems like Unit 4 is quickly adopting “Common Core State Standards” which attempt to better get students ready for college and the workplace. I believe this is the “rigor” that is being buzzed about.

 

So feel free to join us this coming Wednesday, December 7th, to talk about these topics. Bring your opinions.
