From the Leadership Council
Tuesday, November 4, 2014 6:40 AM


The Leadership Council met on October 23. Most of the meeting was spent listening and reacting to Paul Scanlon’s State of the School presentation. Council Members’ discussion included: how the District uses MCA scores; how Barton uses a variety of assessment tools; the question of students opting out of state standardized tests and the ramifications. See Paul’s presentation on the Barton website.

Barton parent Shannon Plourde talked to us about the Barton Fund Campaign. Watch for a postcard asking for a donation to Barton.

The Barton Parent Handbook, by Parents and For Parents, has been published! Paper copies will go home with all Kindergarten students. Find the handbook online at:   Thanks to parents Kristi Smith-Knutson, Katherine Harter, Brenda Johnson and Kris Mandler for your leadership and hard work getting a long-talked about idea to completion!
