Provide Feedback For Our Next PTA Meeting on October 6th!
Interim Superintendent Dr. Drew Patrick will be at Greenacres on Thursday, October 6th at 7:00PM, as part of the next GA General PTA meeting.
Dr. Patrick looks forward to introducing himself, and is also seeking the thoughts of our parent community with respect to the work underway related to Board of Education Policy #0105, Equity, Inclusivity, and Diversity in Education, which was adopted in April, 2021.
The policy states, among other things, that, "...we are committed to ensuring that all students feel safe, included, welcomed, and accepted, and experience a sense of belonging and academic success."
Dr. Patrick invites you to share your perspectives around two essential questions.
- In what ways are we successfully rising to meet this commitment to our students?
- What could we be doing to better fulfill this commitment to our students?
We will also take questions from the Greenacres community in advance for Dr. Patrick to answer during the meeting.
If you would like to answer these questions, or provide additional feedback, please use THIS FORM.
We hope to see you there!
