Have you heard of the Five Star Leadership Academy? It’s a parent group that meets monthly to learn the ins and outs of public education, including how public schools are funded, how we choose curriculum, how we keep your kids safe and more.
The purpose of the group is to create a sense of shared responsibility and partnership, empowering parents and community members with information and resources needed to step into leadership roles within our school, the district or community.
The academy is accepting applications for its third year and your name came to mind when I thought about parents who would benefit from this group. I want to personally invite and encourage you to apply to learn more about our schools and take a further step into a leadership role.
For more information about the Five Star Leadership Academy, and to apply for the 2017-18 cohort, visit www.adams12.org/FSLA.
