Edmonds School District Superintendent Nick Brossoit spoke to a small group of parents, students and educators Tuesday night at Mountlake Terrace High School in the third of four parent/community meetings being held around the district.
Brossoit emphasized the district Strategic Direction program that covers five areas being studied by district work groups: PreK – 3rd grade early learning, monitoring enrollment and facilities, learning programs for all students, impact of new requirement for 24 credits to earn high school diploma, and family engagement. The superintendent also briefly addressed the district’s replacement technology/capital levy that will be on the Feb. 9, 2016.
Brossoit answered questions from the audience Tuesday ranging from use of district-supplied Chromebooks by students, programs for high school students in danger of not graduating, and the Washington State Supreme Court’s McCleary decision requiring “full funding” for school.
Tuesday’s community meeting at Mountlake Terrace was the third for Brossoit this fall; the superintendent will host opportunity for public discussion on Tuesday, Nov. 17, at Edmonds-Woodway High School.
