Community members who didn’t have a chance to participate in the March 29 virtual meeting can view it in its entirety here.
The meeting, hosted by the WPS Board of Education, addressed a broad range of topics from extended learning opportunities available this summer to upcoming graduation plans to COVID-19 vaccines.
“It’s important to connect with our community and hear what our parents and employees are thinking, so this was a great opportunity for everyone,” said Superintendent Pam Swanson. “We received some good feedback that we will use in planning for the future.”
As part of the program, the community viewed the video below which highlights the work the district accomplished during the pandemic.
Key points shared with the community:
COVID-19 Vaccines – Westminster High School will serve as a vaccination clinic for the community Thursday through Sunday. All Coloradoans over 16 can now register for the vaccine. WPS is working with COVIDCheck Colorado to offer vaccines. Learn more here.
Extended Summer Learning- WPS is offering 12 days of learning through Friday, June 11. Parents have been asked to confirm their plans with individual schools so principals can meet staffing requirements. The 12 days are not mandatory but are highly encouraged.
CMAS Testing- WPS lobbied for a suspension of all CMAS testing in the spring to focus on learning instead of testing. State and Federal leaders approved a compromise plan that will significantly limit testing.
