Thursday, June 12, 2014, 6:30pm-8pm
Parent Advisory Group on Advanced Learning (PAG-AL)
The Parent Advisory Group for Advanced Learning is a parent-led organization dedicated to having a positive impact on programs in our district, provide valuable activities for parents, and add an important voice to our school district’s dialogue and decision making. All are invited to: Meet with other parents to share experiences and offer mutual support; Learn from free workshops on topics requested by parents; Understand the mechanisms CPS has in place to support students with advanced learning needs; Join our parents-only email support list, to ask questions and share resources; Voice your concerns about issues affecting children with advanced learning needs in CPS.
The June meeting will be part workshop, and part meeting, and will focus on these two things:
1. – If you need a transition plan for your child, for moving into the next school year, bring your folder of notes, and Paula can guide you in what to write up, and how to communicate with your child’s new teachers.
2. – We’ll work on a draft of what to include (parents’ perspective) in the report that Paula Feynman, Patty Nolan, et al will present to the district about the status of advanced learning in CPS.
1st Floor Conference Room, Cambridge Rindge and Latin HS, 459 Broadway, Cambridge, MA
Light refreshments will be provided.
