Dr. Chris Span at BTW tonight

Apparently a flyer went out to a limited number of schools inviting “All Parents/Guardians” to “a parent involvement discussion led by Dr. Christopher Span“. He is the guy that co-led the Rose & Taylor Education forum a while back. This seems like a really cool opportunity – I am wondering why it was not broadcast via KCN or on any of the school websites and why only some schools heard about it. We at Carrie Busey, who have one of the highest mobility rates and a fair number of low-SES families, did not get wind of this opportunity. Curious. Good luck finding the flyer online. 🙂

I have bugged Dr. Span several times for a report from the Rose & Taylor forum and am still waiting. I am not quite sure what the game is – Dr. Span seems to be collecting some really great community feedback, but what happens to it then? What good is the community input doing? From the community perspective, is it merely to get things off your chest?

    What time will this occur and where within BTW?

    Click on the picture to get a “full-size” version. 5:30 pm is the time. Since food will be provided, I assume it will be in the cafetorium area – I have been there once for the Schools of Choice Forum. I believe it is on the south east side of the building. I think.

    I tried to click on the imagine to enlarge. This did not work with my system and/or computer skill set. 🙂

    The BTW Secretary and BTW PTA President have confirmed that this is legit and still going on. I have changed the thumbnail to go to a high-quality original document:

    I am an idiot – this has been announced to all schools for about a month now (and I have been putting it in the school PTA newsletter calendar). Wow…. my bad.

  6. pattsi Says:

    Can anyone post a summary of this program?

  7. charlesdschultz Says:

    I have left email and voice mails with Dr. Span and Audrie Mock at the FIC. I have also contacted another parent involved with the PTA for more contacts, since she was unable to make it to the program that evening. I called BTW and learned that the Assistant Principal (Cheryl Camacho) was also involved, but I do not know to what degree.

    So far, I have not heard anything.
