Parent Advisory Meetings for 2015-2016

The 2015-2016 school year will be a very important year to attend CALA meetings and to show your interest in advanced learning in the Cambridge Public Schools for a number of reasons:

  • It is an election year – we want  the School Committee to include advanced learning on their list of important issues in the district
  • We are choosing a new Superintendent – we want a Superintendent experienced in best practices and socio-economically just practices in advanced learning
  • Cambridge Public Schools are rolling out the use of an RTI model to address learning differences – we want the School Committee to allocate more money to helping ALL kids move forward in their learning
  • The Academic Challenge Program Manager, Paula Feynman, continues to need parent participation to keep her excellent and much-needed programming in the district

Parent Advisory Meeting on Advanced Learning will be the 3rd Wednesday of the month except for February and April due to vacation.  We will meet in the CRLS conference room 6:30-8:00pm. Here are the dates:

Oct 21, Nov 18, Dec 16, Jan 20, Feb 10, March16, April 13, May 18

Please let me know if there are specific topics you want to focus on at meetings. As always, CALA’s role is advocacy for advanced learning and support for parents.
