Transformative Ideas to Change Middle Schools the Focus of March I-Connect Meeting

Have you ever thought your child’s middle school experience would be so much better if only [you fill in the blank] could be changed? The Bellevue School District’s Reimagining Middle Schools (RMS) Committee has been examining ways to innovate and alter the traditional model under which middle schools operate. After collaborating for six months, the 35-member committee has come up with some transformative ideas for change, which it will ultimately submit for consideration to the BSD Superintendent and Executive Team. First the committee wants to present its ideas to middle school parents to see what they think.

Join us at a special I-Connect meeting, “Have Your Say: How Would You Reimagine Middle School?,” for the opportunity to give input on institutional changes that could one day be implemented across BSD middle schools. All parents are invited to attend on Monday, March 13, 9:00-10:30 am in Room 1402.

Guest Speakers: Chinook Principal James Peterson, and Melisa Macias, Ed.D., Director of Teaching and Learning for BSD. Mr. Peterson and Dr. Macias are members of the RMS Committee.

I-Connect is a PTSA-sponsored program designed to promote community among parents. Monthly meetings focus on topics relevant to our Chinook community. All parents are welcome to attend.
