Dress Code Policy Feedback
District is revising lots of policies – wants feedback from parents before they revise the policy
Policy says only sweaters with a school logo; Marta does not require this, but policy should reflect this.
Plain black and burgundy sweaters, cardigans, or hoodies (hood has to be worn down).
School “spirit” shirts can now be worn any day of the week. Only requirement is shirt has RDLS logo on it.
Exemptions from wearing a uniform: must be approved by Marta. Exemptions might be for religious reasons (for an entire year), or for a day (Girl Scouts).
Review, analyze what we’ve done
Title I: supplemental funds to assist in meeting student’s educational goals
Documents that we need your input
Parent and Family Engagement (PFE)
Want to establish partnerships with parents and the community; neither home or school can do the work alone.
Need to do much more work to engage Latino families; individual phone calls, relationship-building; Latino Family Association meetings.
Possibility for having PTSO meetings externally? At an apartment complex, community center, etc.
Learning agreement between parent, student, school
Received during Open House (2018) – will be distributed at Open House in 2019 as well
School Improvement Plan
In June we will prepare a plan for 2019-2020
PFE will be included in the School Involvement Plan
Packing classrooms for construction
If teachers need assistance with packing, the PTSO will put out a request!
