Norfolk Public Schools
Who are the Parent Leaders?
The Parent Leaders Committee is comprised of a group of parents who have students in the Norfolk Public Schools and are interested in working collaboratively with the district to problem solve issues, discuss educational programming and support efforts towards continuous improvement.
What is the time commitment?
The Parent Leaders group meets one evening a month for approximately 1-2 hours. it is an open meeting and anyone can attend. We are looking for members who are able to commit to attending on a fairly regular basis, although it is not required to attend every meeting. We are often working on long-term projects and it is helpful to have some continuity of membership.
What kinds of topics do the Parent Leaders discuss?
Parent Leaders focus primarily on District Level issues (policies, school budget, school calendar, curriculum, parent involvement.) Last year this group was instrumental in helping identity key resources and information to include on the new district website. In addition, the group provided feedback and input into the district strategic plan and will be working this year on developing a parent survey. There is always time at the end of each meeting for new topics to be introduced or items added to the next agenda.
What is the mission of the Parent Leaders Group?
The mission of the Parent Leaders Group is "To create a forum for open, positive, respectful dialog between District Administration and parents aimed at improving and enhancing the educational experience of all students and their families."
First meeting: Monday, October 6th at 7:00 in the Freeman-Kennedy School Superintendent's Conference Room. For more information, please contact Pam Kinahan at 508-528-1225.
