    Climate and Culture Connection 4/3/19
    In January 2019, the Board of Education contracted with the Wilson Foxen consulting firm to perform a climate and culture study of the Aspen School District. On Monday and Tuesday, April 1 and 2, Liz Wilson held several different meetings to present her findings to the Board of Education, the Superintendent, the District leadership team, all school staff, and the community. Her presentation included a power point deck which may be accessed by CLICKING HERE. Several other documents provided are listed below:
         O-Factor
         Culture Matrix
         Recommendations

    The Board of Education is in the process of developing a full understanding of the study’s results and Wilson Foxen’s  recommendations. We anticipate that as we digest this information, the Board will discuss next steps and develop pathways forward. Look for much more communication as we wend our way thorough this process. We appreciate your trust and patience as we continue to work toward creating an exemplary culture and climate for our students, our staff and our community.

    Board Academy
    Have you ever been curious about serving on the Board of Education? Want to learn more about what the Board does? 

    Every year ASD board members try to attend the National School Association’s annual convention. It’s a wonderful opportunity to see what other districts are doing and consider best practices. Something that inspired us this past year, which we loved, is what we’re calling our “Board Academy”. We see this as a chance to offer exposure and educational opportunities about the Aspen School District and Board of Education and its functions to community members who may have an interest in running for a Board seat.  It’s also just a great opportunity for anyone looking to further understand the District and how it operates. 

    The Academy will consist of six monthly sessions, beginning October, concluding May and excluding December and March. It will be the second Wednesday of the month in the District Boardroom from 5:00pm – 6:00pm as noted below:

    The Board Academy is free and open to the public. Space is limited. Please consider joining us. We look forward to sharing with you. Email your interest in attending to Angela at arittenhouse@aspenk12.net.
