Your Building Leadership Team (BLT) and the Pathfinder staff have agreed that this will be the year Pathfinder engages in the application process to become a Creative Approach school. THIS IS A CALL FOR PROPOSALS as to what that approach will be. The process is vigorous and our timeline is tight. However, this may be the last year that the opportunity will be made available hence the push to apply this year for the following school year. Proposals are due on October 30th at 9:00 a.m. Community involvement is crucial to the success of the application. Please see the following embedded document for additional information on Creative Approach Schools, our deadlines/process, as well as the proposal questions.
Once the proposals are turned in a very busy Creative School Committee will be assessing the applications to determine the direction of our approach. This committee will be made up of staff, PTSA Board members and other parents. Pathfinder’s deadline for submitting the application is December 19th. There will be a Town Hall to review and discuss the application prior to its submission. Date to be announced.
If you are completely (or partially) in the dark about Creative Approach schools like I was until a month ago, I am available as your BLT parent representative to answer any questions as is David. We are excited about the possibilities for Pathfinder as a Creative Approach school and although the process will be intense and rigorous, feel that it is a worthy endeavor!
