The Palo Alto school district is seeking parents to apply for membership on a new District Climate Committee, to help in "creating clear channels of communication" to the community on efforts to promote "safe and welcoming schools."
The committee's work will be an outgrowth of a Safe and Welcoming Schools Task Force launched last spring to develop recommendations on training and curriculum, help clarify reporting of bullying and engage families in ensuring safe and welcoming schools.
Student Services Coordinator Brenda Carrillo will staff the committee. Carrillo is seeking at least one parent for each school level representing "the diversity of the Palo Alto parent community." Preschool parents also are welcome to apply.
Applications are due by 5 p.m. Monday, Oct. 21 and those selected as members will be notified by email by Wednesday, Oct. 23.
For more information, contact Carrillo at firstname.lastname@example.org or 650 329-3769.
