Last March approximately 140 community members, school staff, and students participated in a series of conversations co-facilitated by community members and Harwood Union High School students. These conversations explored the community’s hopes and concerns about education, built shared understanding about our schools' efforts to make sure all of our students are successful, and generated insights and recommendations to guide future work. The Community Coalition that planned the community conversations continues to meet in order to provide a forum for leadership and community engagement in our schools. To inform the work of the Community Coalition, we request that you fill out this short survey:
