DGSD will be reviewing and revising four major guiding documents for the District. These include:
• The District Strategic Plan
• District Crisis Response Plan
• School Parent Involvement Plan
• School Discipline Procedures
Each of these documents should reflect our community values and expectations so it is imperative that parents participate in the discussions and reviews that will be taking place.
The first two, the District Strategic Plan and the District Crisis Plan, will be coordinated at the District level. Parents who are interested in participating in these reviews and discussions should contact Sharon Waldo at 895-‐4657 ex 21 to volunteer to participate. The District Strategic Plan looks at the state of the district right now and helps to establish overarching goals for the District in the coming three to five years. The District Crisis Response Plan is a review of our existing plan to determine if any changes or additions need to be made.
The second two topics, Parent Involvement Plans and School Discipline will be addressed at the school building level. Schools will be refining a school involvement plan to define specific goals and strategies to help parents promote their children’s education in cooperation with the school. The School Discipline procedures is certainly a reflection of the community behavioral expectations and values and parents will be involved in defining those values and appropriate ways to address students who do not exhibit the desired behaviors. Parents who wish to be involved in either of these discussions are encouraged to contact the school office where your children attend.
