Principal Candidate Community Forum
When: Monday, June 24th, 7-8:30pm
Where: Ravenswood School Gym
Join the LSC (Local School Council) and the PSA (Principal Selection Advisory) next Monday for your chance to hear from and ask questions to our final three candidates for the next Principal of Ravenswood School. This is the final phase of the process laid out by the LSC to determine the best candidate for our school. This forum is open to the public and Ravenswood School families (past, present and future) are encouraged to attend.
We plan to provide Spanish translation headphones (special thanks to LVHS) and a translator for any Spanish speakers who have a question they would like to ask.
The LSC and PSA value the public’s questions and input. The LSC is charged with hiring and evaluating the principal and will discuss final approvals in closed session and vote in open session.
Wednesday, June 19th, is our end of school extravaganza. Students and their teachers will have designated times to visit Ramapalooza festivities outside.
