Over the past month, the Partnership for Change held 32 neighborhood learning conversations in homes, schools, and community spaces to talk about the draft Graduate Expectations for WMHS and BHS. Those who could not attend a learning conversation were able to provide feedback online throughout the month. 249 parents, students, teachers and community members gave feedback on the Burlington Graduate Expectations drafts and 139 gave feedback on the Winooski Graduate Expectations drafts. Our next step will be to share the feedback we’ve collected and move towards a final draft. Stay tuned!
