At the Tamalpais Union High School District, we are committed to providing our students with a myriad of educational opportunities to prepare them for life after high school. We have been working diligently toward this goal for the last few years, and we recognize the importance of sharing our work with our stakeholders--because an informed community is an invaluable partner in the success of our students. To this end, we have created a short video highlighting some of our work of the last three years.
We chose the video format as a means to address several of the district's "Community Relations" strategic goals:
- Utilize most effective means of communication with the district's internal and external stakeholders
- Develop an understanding of the school district by providing a flow of information about policies, programs, and progress of the schools
- Bring about community understanding of the need for continuous improvement and what must be done to facilitate that improvement
The video features staff and students who volunteered for this opportunity. They either spoke extemporaneously or developed their own script.
The full-length video is about eight minutes long, but for your convenience, I have linked the three-minute "Sneak Peek" preview here.
The short promotional video is featured on our website, and the full-length version will be used as a basis for discussion with staff, parents, and community members throughout the 2013-2014 school year.
Tam District parents will have multiple opportunities to view the full-length video at meetings of the PTSA, Foundation, advisory councils, and the like. If your school or community organization is interested in delving further into the work of the Tam District, please contact me at firstname.lastname@example.org to schedule a time for a trustee and I to share the video and discuss our efforts with your group.
