At the April 30 Parent Leaders meeting, we completed a Organization Development Needs Assessment survey for our group to determine the type of training and organizational development activities we are most interested in accessing during the 2018-2019 school year.
After evaluating the results, the topics that were of highest interest were
- School improvement,
- Energizers, warm-ups and ice breakers,
- Group agreements and norms, and
Some of the specific skills we wanted to build included increasing diversity/inclusivity in our parent groups, volunteer recruitment, supporting transitions (betwen elementary/middle/high), 4J policies and procedures, and fundraising.
Moving forward, Heather Sielicki and Rita Gillihan will meet with Brooke Wagner to schedule dates for next year.
