Superintendent's Forum: Good to Great -- What Does It Mean for Metuchen's Schools?

| 3 Comments
Thursday, February 19.  7:30 p.m. -- MHS Cafeteria
 
The first in what will be a series of public forums will hope to get feedback on the following questions:
 
1. What do we want for our children?
2. What do we value in our schools? 
3. What do we want our district to achieve?
 
After an overview by Superintendent of Schools Terri Sinatra, the audience will break up into small groups, facilitated by Administrators, to discuss these questions.  Results of the small group discussions will form the basis for upcoming meetings. 
 
Organizers are hoping that at least 100 citizens come and participate.  Sometimes a vocal minority has more influence in shaping the direction of our schools than perhaps they would if people with many different ideas and opinions shared their thoughts.  No speaking before a large audience will be required.
 
Maybe you are an educator with a great deal of experience in another district.  Maybe you are the parent of child entering kindergarten or one graduating high school; your opinions are valued and your perspective is necessary.
 
The 2009-10 budget is currently in development.  Will what you value be represented as our resources are allocated?

This was scheduled for a long time, well before I ever heard of the community development block grant meeting.

They want a lot of people to attend. So they schedule it for the same night as a planning board meeting and a community development block grant meeting. Oh, never mind, no one goes to those.

This sounds like a great idea. As someone who is usually critical of the school administration, I really think that this is a great idea. Looking forward to attending.
