D-E Parent Focus Group:

Thursday, January 19, 2017; 7:30-8:30 PM

There are times in the life of a school when it is important for the full community to come together to collectively envision and share thoughts about the future.  Gathering a variety of perspectives, hopes and dreams, and questions helps to strengthen us.

On Thursday, January 19th and Friday, January 20th, the Dwight-Englewood School will be undertaking a process of envisioning and listening as we prepare to hire a Director of Institutional Equity and Social Justice.  Please see below for the first draft of the position job description.

Head of School Dr. De Jarnett has invited two Senior Consultants from Carney Sandoe and Associates to support our national search.  The consultants, Sherry and Jennifer,  will be engaging members of the full D-E community by conducting many focus groups over the course of those two days.  A special time has been planned for D-E parents to meet with the consultants on Thursday, Jan. 19th at 7:30 PM. 

For our planning purposes, please RSVP to Mrs. Rullo at rullol@d-e.org if you are able to attend.  If you are unable to attend this evening session, Mrs. Rullo will be able to provide more information about ways in which you can share your thoughts, hopes, dreams, and wonderings with the consultants.

This is an exciting opportunity for the community to continue to grow in understanding.
