Sustainable funding for the HS GT Program – Feb 14, 2017
Tue, Feb 14, 2017 at 8:13 AM
At last Thursday’s Board meeting, we heard the Board and Kevin Carroll state that the HS GT program should continue and that funding should be sustainable, but without a specific plan beyond 2017-2018.
Therefore, I’d like to recommend that you form a committee to discuss and develop a sustainable funding proposal now. I recommend that you consider a committee that, as a minimum, consists of the following individuals/representatives:
Kathleen Askelson, Finance, Chair
Kevin Carroll, oversees District GT programs
Griff Wirth, Wheat Ridge HS Principal
One of the District’s HS GT Teachers (Elliott Holm or Lisa Lee)
One member of the Wheat Ridge HS School Accountability Committee
One HS GT parent representative
Thanks in advance for your consideration of this recommendation. I don’t think we want to go through next year what we just went through with respect to the HS GT Program.
