Happy Friday to all!
We want to give a special thanks to the Santa Clara Day School staff. They have been working hard to create a strong learning environment for the students of Santa Clara during a time of instability. We've had the opportunity to sit down with many of the staff, and their focus remains with the students at the school. We are excited to continue working with them to build on the successes they have had.
For those of you not able to make the Education Symposium on October 12, 2015, we have posted the notes and a basic rundown of the Meta-Curriculum on our Grant Process page. Take a look, and if you want to add something please feel to reach out to us or comment in the forum.
The P.L. 100-297 Grant Application has been submitted, and now the planning team is working to submit several documents, including policies and procedures, bylaws, etc. During this time, the Tribal Council will also be appointing the first school board, or "Founding Board", that will work during the transition year to approve policies and procedures, assist in curriculum development, and hire the school principal for SY2016-2017. The Advising Committee will be submitting recommendations, and the positions will also be posted publicly. We will update the website when they are officially posted. The Tribal Council is currently waiting on the Advising Committee's recommendations and for the postings to be made before they make their decisions.
