Helping all students learn and grow into educated, engaged citizens is the hallmark of the Tamalpais Union High School District. We want our schools, programs, and communities to be focused on this worthy goal, so I have created a brand new advisory council to ensure that a broad range of Tam District parents are able to discuss and contribute to school system initiatives. This is an excellent opportunity for parents to become involved in the district and to have their voices heard.
The Superintendent’s Parent Advisory Council will be comprised of parent representatives from each of the five high schools in the Tamalpais Union High School District. Meetings will be held four times per year.
The Superintendent’s Parent Advisory Council will provide input on ways to improve communication and parent engagement at the district and school level. The council will also provide feedback and advice regarding school system initiatives.
The council will be comprised of two parents from each comprehensive high school and one parent from each of the two alternative schools. Members will serve on the council for one school year.
To ensure broad representation, the appointment of members will be made based on a variety of factors including geographic location of residence and areas of interest and experience.
Meeting Dates and Location
The meetings have been scheduled for October 1, January 14, March 4, and May 20, from 7:00 p.m. to 9:00 p.m. All four meetings will be held in the District Office’s Kreps Conference Center, which is on the Redwood High School campus in Larkspur.
Council members will be expected to:
· Attend scheduled meetings
· Prepare for each meeting, as needed
· Work in a collaborative manner with other parents and staff
· Express views openly, constructively, and respectfully
