Vision 2020 Forumvision2020_cover_sm

The Board of Education and Superintendent Cindy Marten invite all stakeholders to a series of neighborhood meetings to Dream Big together for the future of our schools.  The next forum is this Saturday, March 1st, 3:00-5:00 p.m. at Patrick Henry High School (6702 Wandermere Dr. 92120).

The “Vision 2020 Forums: What Kinds of Schools Do We Want” series offer parents, staff, students, and community members an opportunity to give input to the superintendent and the board members on priorities for our students and schools. The forums will focus on three guiding questions:

  1. What do we believe is working on our path to accomplishing Vision 2020?
  2. What do we feel and/or think should be improved upon in order to accomplish our Vision 2020?
  3. How will we work together to accomplish our Vision 2020?

Childcare and translation services will be available.  Please RSVP on district website.
