All Grades

Principal Bulletin Informational

The National Equity Project will conduct a “listening campaign” with SCUSD stakeholders on Monday, November 2 (6 p.m. to 8 p.m.) in the Serna Center Community Rooms.

Attached please find flyers for the event for printing and backpacking home.

NEP works with school districts and organizations all over the country to help create conditions in schools and communities that lead to more equitable conditions, experiences, and outcomes for students and their families,

NEP has partnered with SCUSD this year and is working with our leaders in schools and the district office to increase our skill and capacity to work toward equity. Listening to the voices of stakeholders across the system is important.  Parents, staff, families, and community groups have been invited to this evening.  Some sample question that will help guide the evening’s conversation include…

  • What do you most want to be true for the children of Sacramento?
  • What does success look like for our children? What do you think it will take to achieve that success?  What does/could get in the way of achieving success?
  • What do you think could make the experience of children and families better?
  • What would you like to see more of or less of? What would you like to change going forward?
  • What do you think is possible here in our district?  What hopes do you hold for our children and families?

Following the listening campaign, the NEP will analyze the data and share key themes that emerge.  Additionally, the NEP will work with the district to help make shared meaning of the observations.  This data will help our district better understand our needs and obligations as we work toward creating a more equitable system. Please join us as important participants in this discussion.
