Leadership Council candidate statements due Friday, May 10, 2013
Wednesday, May 8, 2013 1:10 PM

The Barton Leadership Council is a collaborative group of teachers and parents that helps to make policy and budget decisions that support our school’s mission.

There are many ways Barton parents contribute to this remarkable learning community, and serving on the Leadership Council is one of these ways. There are no special skills required for Council, other than the interest and energy to work collaboratively in making Barton the best it can be.
The Council meets once or twice a month during the school year on Thursday evenings, starting at either 4:30 or 6 PM, and concluding an hour and a half later. Childcare is available.

To submit your name for possible Leadership Council participation, please:

  1. Write a 3-5 sentence statement about yourself that includes your hopes for Barton, and
  2. Return this “candidate statement” by Friday, May 10 to the school office or e-mail to Patrick at

A Council endorsement form will be sent home to all families the following week. Each adult member of the Barton community will be asked to endorse those candidates they wish to represent them.

New Council members will be invited to attend our last meeting of the year on Thursday, May 30, at 6 PM. If you have questions, please feel free to contact a current Council member (listed on our web site).
