• Thank you to everyone who participated in our community survey in November. The results of the Kindergarten Program parent surveys are provided here.  The School Board recently held a study session to learn about the District’s overall results. In the coming weeks, our staff will continue reviewing this information to guide and inform our work.  In addition, we will host a community meeting open to all families.  The purpose of the community meeting is to provide families the opportunity to ask questions and discuss the results. We have also attached information regarding the 9 Characteristics of High Performing Schools report created by OSPI.  All of this information is just the beginning of the conversation about our school; after the current realities of the perception data are shared, the collaborative work of leveraging that data in our school improvement plans and our program really begins.  Please feel free to contact me with your questions. If you have any questions about the district level survey or reports, please contact our Public Information Office at public.info@shorelineschools.org or 206.393.4412.   
    Derek Dalasta, Kindergarten Program Administrator.
