Parent Advisory | Site Council

January 2, 2019

Our next Parent Advisory and Site Council session will be held on Tuesday, January 22 from 6:00-7:15 pm at Hesston High School.

These meetings are opportunities for all parents and guardians of USD 460 students along with interested community members to gather, discuss and learn about our schools in Hesston.  We will meet for approximately 30-45 minutes as an entire district and then 30 minutes will be building-level discussions led by our principals.

On January 22, our district-wide conversation will center on two primary initiatives in USD 460 for the 2018-19 school year and in the years to come.  First, we will discuss the concept of Authentic Literacy and what this means for our students as they apply the skills and knowledge they learn inside and outside of our classrooms.  A second initiative we will discuss is Standards-Based Protocols, which is a way we promote high expectations for student learning and performance in USD 460.  

We look forward to our conversation on January 22 and hope you can make it to HHS that evening.  If you plan to attend, please contact your child's school or feel free to contact our district office by calling 620-327-4931 or email ben.proctor@usd460.org.

Respectfully,

Ben Proctor
Superintendent

Once per quarter, every parent or guardian of a child in USD 460 is invited to attend our Parent Advisory and Site Council sessions.  Each of these meetings is held from 6:00-7:00 pm at Hesston High School.  

These sessions typically consist of 30 minutes to discuss district-wide topics and 30 minutes to focus on building-level topics.  The meetings are structured so that participants can hear information about things happening in our schools and share thoughts and ideas on these initiatives.  

We will have Parent Advisory and Site Council sessions on the following dates:
  • Tuesday, August 21
  • Tuesday, October 30
  • Tuesday, January 22
  • Tuesday, March 19

Again, these sessions will run from 6:00-7:00 pm at HHS.  On August 21, we will take a look at some of the specific initiatives that we will focus on for the coming year.  This includes our current grading practices along with how we approach standards-based protocols.  

Our District Improvement Framework is an important resource and guide for many of our district-wide discussions during these sessions.  

We hope that you will consider participating in these opportunities throughout this school year.  If you do plan to attend or if you have any questions on anything at all, please call, email, or text any time.  Our office number is 620-327-4931 and my email is ben.proctor@usd460.org.

Respectfully,
