STUDY TOPICS OF THE 2021-2022 CITIZENS ADVISORY COMMITTEE:

 

Study One: Bullying

What are the best practice strategies used by school districts to address bullying incidents in their schools and create a climate and culture that reduces the likelihood of bullying behavior? How can we provide restorative practices for all students that help to build a positive climate in our schools?

 

Study Two: Standards-Based Grading Practices at the Primary Level

How do our current primary grading practices compare with other highly effective school districts, and how can we best provide feedback to parents on student achievement and growth? When are letter grades introduced and most effective in reporting student progress?

 

Study Three: Primary Facilities

What are possible long-term solutions for improved primary facilities that provide optimal learning environments for students in grades K-4 and what are the associated costs/benefits for each potential solution?

 

WOULD YOU BE INTERESTED IN SERVING ON THE CAC?

Serving on the Citizens Advisory Committee (CAC) is a great way to be informed and be of service to Wyoming City Schools and the community. Would you be interested in serving on the CAC? Please complete and return this application.

Made up of volunteer Wyoming residents, district staff, and Board of Education members, the purpose of the CAC to the Wyoming Board of Education is two-fold:

  1. Through the use of expert community resources, the committee will be responsible for conducting studies and investigations and reporting such findings and making suggestions or recommendations, if any, in areas of school program and operation as those areas of study or investigation are identified by the Board of Education or by the Board of Education and the Committee members with the approval of the Board of Education.
  2. The Committee will assist in maintaining active and informed school-community relations through the discussion of general educational issues affecting the community of Wyoming and by serving as the communication link between the Board and the citizens.

The committee composition includes business, community and educational leaders; two board members; the superintendent; and the director of communications. Every effort shall be made to ensure that the makeup of the committee is as truly representative of the community as possible.

In addition to reaching out to board members and staff members, communicating with members of the CAC provides another channel for community members interested in learning more about the work of the district or interested in giving feedback on district-wide opportunities and issues.
