Meetings and Goal Teams
As part of the Bull City Community School Partnership, Southwest Elementary was named a Community School. Our community school coordinator, Lexus Walker, joined the staff in August 2018. As part of the Community School model, in 2018-19, the school underwent an intensive listening project that solicited feedback from families, staff, and teachers. The project identified four key areas as the top needs for the school. To address these needs, Southwest Elementary has formed both parent and teacher goal teams to iterate school improvement in the following areas:
- Parent & Family Engagement
- Culturally Relevant Curriculum
- Health and Wellness
At designated upcoming meetings, parents can join a small group session around each of these four areas, to provide valuable feedback, share ideas, and offer to help if they wish to do so. Although it is helpful to come to each session, it is not required – you will be invited to join a group for that meeting when you arrive.
