Strategic Planning Focus Group

You have an opportunity to help shape the future of students in Port Angeles! The Port Angeles School District has completed a community-wide inclusive survey that was open to all residents in the district regarding the strategic planning process and the educational needs of students. Survey results include the community’s thoughts on public education in our city. We read and noted every individual response as a part of this process. We will now use the information from the Inclusive Community Survey to inform Focus Groups and have conversations with stakeholders while collecting community feedback and input.

We now invite you to share additional thoughts by participating in a Focus Group. The groups are facilitated by Ann Renker, PhD. and will last 1 hour.  The Port Angeles Community is invited to a Focus Group located at the Lincoln Center (905 W 9th St, Port Angeles, WA 98363) on Thursday, May 26th at 12pm.

We want to be inclusive in our options to provide feedback during the session. We will provide the writing materials for the session. We will also have a digital response option, so please bring a Wi-Fi connected device if this better meets your needs.
