Community Conversations a.k.a Study Circles

Your Voice Is Important!! The Washington West Supervisory Union Community Coalition invites you to participate in a discussion about the future of learning in WWSU through a series of Community Conversations taking place in March 2016. 

Community Conversations, also known as the Study Circle process, is a forum for community discussion, debate and feedback regarding teaching and learning in the schools of WWSU. Come prepared to talk about ways for students to be prepared for the future, find ways the community can engage to support our learners, and have a voice in the future of educating all of our children.

Each “circle” will consist of a group of 10 individuals from various segments of our community (students, teachers, parents, business owners, community members, etc.) and be facilitated by adult and youth partners from our school and community. These circles will work as a team over the course of four (4) meetings: March 7, March 14, March 21 and March 28 from 6:00-8:00 p.m. at Harwood Union High School. Please sign up in advance so we can have an adequate number of student and adult facilitators. 

It is critical that all participants commit to attending all four sessions, as each discussion builds upon the previous one. Thus, by committing to participate in this process you are agreeing to come to all four meetings. The ultimate purpose of this initiative is to develop and make recommendations to the WWSU Leadership Team to be utilized in the WWSUaction plan. This process is modeled after successful community dialogue programs in other organizations and schools across the country.
