POST-SECONDARY OPPORTUNITIES FOR ALL
We are gathering data again this year for our annual Local Accountability and Control Plan update. The first wave of responses to our survey suggest that our policies, practices, and programs are meeting the needs of our students (as evidenced by admission to top universities in America by our students). If you haven’t completed the annual survey yet, please do so today. Input from the survey informs our Local Accountability and Control Plan, which informs our Competitive Advantage Plan. Your input keeps you connected to us and us connected to you. Schools connected to the community they serve is yet another reason why it’s a great time to be a kid in Duarte. Have a Happy Spring Break!
April 17-April 21st is Spring Break. Enjoy your vacation! We look forward to your return to school on Monday, April 24.
