From the Principal
On Friday, we held a Principal’s Coffee which focused on gathering input for the 2018-19 SCSD LCAP. Thank you to those who were able to make it. If you were not able to join us and would like to learn more about the LCAP process, take a look at the slide presentation here. Please reach out to me if you would like to add input about our LCAP goals. Each of you brings a unique perspective to the table and we are lucky to have a community here at White Oaks that is comprised of so many different areas of expertise. It is the collective whole that creates such a strong support system for our students.
Last week, I sent you an email with a link to our Returning Student Form. If you have not had a chance to fill it out for each White Oaks student in your household, please do so by this Friday, April 19th. This information is imperative for the planning we are doing to prepare for next year’s classes. Thank you in advance for your participation.
