Dear Community Members,
Peninsula Schools are committed to continuous improvement. With that in mind, we would appreciate your input on how our schools are doing. Below is a link for an online, multiple-choice survey. We ask that you please complete and submit the survey by June 9.
The survey questions were developed by the Center for Educational Effectiveness, a Bellevue, Washington-based educational research firm, in collaboration with the Office of the Superintendent of Public Instruction for Washington State. As a cost savings measure, our district has moved away from paper surveys, to electronic versions made available to parents and community members.
Please take a few minutes to send us your input. We truly appreciate your time and participation. Your feedback is very important to our ongoing improvement efforts as we endeavor to make our schools the very best for the students who attend them.
At the May 14, 2015, PSD School board meeting, the Directors requested staff to draft a resolution to the Legislature to fully fund public education. The entire Board stated "They acknowledge that District staff, both certificated and classified collaborates with the community to put kids first."
Last night, our local gem and student advocate, returned from his Honor Flight. Honor Flight is a non-profit organization dedicated to transporting United States military veterans to see the memorials of the respective war they fought, in Washington D.C., at no cost to the veterans. This trip also includes ceremonial honors.We are proud that many of our schools raised funds to send Hugh on this meaningful trip.
Hugh returned to a crowd of cheering students and staff from Gig Harbor High School.
Dear Peninsula School District community,
Thank you for the opportunity you have afforded me to serve as one of your School Board Directors over the past 3 years. I have decided not to seek re-election. I have enjoyed meeting and working with teachers, administrators, and especially parents and community members who understand so well the important work this District does throughout the community, not only to provide a quality education to our 9,000 students but through important partnerships beyond the classroom.
