  Our team has been very busy interviewing students, school personnel, community members, and parents over the last month.  We have conducted 175 individual interviews, along with hundreds of mini interviews at the Apple Festival.  Thank you so much for giving us your time and commitment to help us work to improve our school.  Currently we are working to analyze the interviews.  We are looking for commonalities among stakeholder, we are working to figure out what was being said, and we are looking for the items we need to act upon first.  In the next couple of weeks you will have opportunities to see the information we have gathered, and offer your feedback.  Did we hear you correctly?  What's missing from our information? Those are the questions we will be asking you- and this is no time to be shy!  Please be on the watch for a public meeting near you.

  Over the last ten years our school has conducted more surveys than I care to count.  We've asked good questions, we've sent the questions to the people we need the answers from, but where did it go from there?  Parents, teachers,  and community members were told their opinion was needed.  They were asked to wade through questions and click their answer on a scale of strongly agree, somewhat agree, somewhat disagree, or strongly disagree.  Where did that get us?    Data in isolation has no value.  Does an answer of "somewhat agree," let us know how you actually feel?  It doesn't.  We need better information that we can actually put into use.  We need face to face conversations where we can get to real answers.  We need you.  You are the expert when it comes to your kid, your community, and your vision for our future.  Next week my Design Team will begin making calls to set up interviews with people like you.  If you would like to be interviewed and have not received a call, call me and I will add you to our list.  Together we will make Bloomfield the school you want for your child's future.  Jenny Medina Bloomfield District Readiness Coordinator 812-381-9705

So far the beginning of our grant work has been one step forward, two steps back!  I am so excited to get started that I keep getting ahead of where we need to be.  When I first learned about this grant opportunity, and accepted the position, I thought our focus was very much centered on careers.  How can we better prepare our students for life after they leave our school?  How can we ensure we are giving them the skills they need for whichever career they choose?   After my training I found we are after something much bigger...educational success.  What does educational success mean, and does it mean the same thing to everyone?  If, as a community, we can agree on what educational success actually is, then, and only then, can we work to achieve it.  So, instead of ME deciding what makes educational success, creating a plan, and convincing you to follow it- YOU have to help make these decisions.  Stay tuned, your opportunity to voice your opinions is coming soon!
