Dear Members of our School Community,
We are planning a community and school event where a group of stakeholders will come together to develop strategies for improving our schools. The process used to create this vision is called a "Future Search." A Future Search was held 4 years ago and generated goals that we have adopted these past 4 years. It's now time to reassess our progress and set out on new heights.
We are opening an invitation for all to participate. We anticipate 60-80 people will join us. We are personally inviting community members, hoping to have more community members than school staff so that our future plans will have buy-in from the community.
What is the Future Search EVENT?
The purpose of the future search EVENT is to gather a cross section of people from the area to engage in a dialog about the future of our school system. People will leave the conference with a clear vision and direction for our school system. The strategies developed at the event will become the basis of detailed strategic planning to implement that common direction. We hope you will be able to attend to help us set our course for the next few years. This work is critically important.
THIS PROCESS IS VERY ACTIVE. IT WILL NOT BE BORING. We will be looking at the results of the recent Thoughtexchange survey, assessing our progress since the last Future Search, and setting new directions. Most interaction will be in small groups of 6-7 people – not in front of the whole group. No one will be asked to speak in front of the whole group unless they choose to. You do not need to be an expert in education. You just need to care about the future of our community’s children.
Where will the event be held? Leicester Middle School
When will the event take place? Saturday. April 8, 8:00am-1:00pm
IT IS IMPORTANT TO BE THERE FOR THE ENTIRE TIME. The activities build upon one another. Dropping in and/or out during the Future Search does not work well.
