Dear BSD students, families, staff, and Burlington community members,
Now that the school district has adopted its latest 5-year strategic plan, we are reaching out to invite you to apply to be on our Guiding Coalition Steering Committee made up of students, families, staff, and community members. This coalition will make sure that we are staying true to the stated vision of our new, 5-year strategic plan and approve large changes in direction. We are committed to having students, families, school and district staff, and community members continuing to co-construct our path forward.
At the meetings, our Steering Committee will share updates on progress in the priority areas, learn from each other about ways to support the work, gather evidence and feedback about impact, and make plans for further progress. The committee will also reflect on whether the current strategic planning work is student-centered and responsive, and to what extent your school district is adhering to our stated initiatives.
This Steering Committee will meet every month, up to 10 times each year (not in July or December), in-person, on the last Thursday of the month for two hours from 5:30-7:30pm. Twice a year, the committee may engage in a longer retreat, in place of their monthly meeting to do more in-depth reflection and planning. The first meeting is scheduled for September 22, 2022. Members of the coalition will be compensated at a rate of $25 per hour and dinner and childcare will be provided at all evening meetings.
The deadline to complete the online application is August 15, 2022. To apply, please click on the appropriate link:
