Superintendent's Update 11-8-2019

Superintendent Update Nov. 8 

The LOSD leadership team and I are reflecting on a variety of community engagement events this past week and our opportunities to continue learning and growing as an organization and a community.


Listening Sessions: I appreciate parents and guardians who attended listening sessions to share what we, in LOSD, should celebrate, what we need to improve and who we want to become. Your feedback was impactful, and will inform our strategic planning.


Pool: Part of our bond work is the pool project, with which LOSD has engaged in partnership with the City of Lake Oswego. We held our first community engagement meeting to gather input on preliminary layers of decision-making for the pool design and development. Feedback surfaced some core questions that we're considering with our partners.


Safety and Security: We appreciate the vigilance and quick action of our staff, community and law enforcement during the lockdown at Lake Oswego High School, and lockouts at nearby schools and entities. We are grateful there was no real threat, and are working with our partners in the Lake Oswego Police Department to learn what can be done better to try to avoid such alarms. In this newsletter is more information about the universal approach LOSD has adopted in responding to any incident.


In the spirit of learning and growing, we have ongoing opportunities for continuous improvement and we look forward to engaging with you further.
