Thank you to those of you who participated in our April 2nd planning meeting. We were able to refine our teacher and ECE training, scheduled to occur in late May and early June. This will be the first in an on-going series of professional learning opportunities for the educators working with this pilot program.
Thank you to Nancy and Hilary at RRU for drafting a Memorandum of Understanding, which will be finalized over the coming weeks. Thank you also to Laura for taking the lead to draft a safety manual, and to others for providing support to complete this document. A final word of thanks to Leah and Scot for developing a student clothing and gear list, which was expanded during our meeting.
There was discussion about the transition to a smaller steering committee that will help support the pilot on a more regular basis beginning in June. The broader community planning meetings that have been taking place monthly will occur on an as needed basis beginning this summer. The input from our larger community partner group has been invaluable. Thank you to those of you who have supported the project with your ideas and expertise!
