Thanks so much for taking the time out of your day to come last night. The amount of people there was a true testament to the extreme care and passion that everyone has in an effort to make Brent truly great! As I said last night, I have the best job in the District!
Below you will find a link to the slides from last night’s opening plenary, including mine. Additionally, there is a separate link to Working Group members’ e-mail addresses in the event you want to reach out to them directly.
Thanks again, and I look forward to finalizing the Strategic Plan soon!
In continued partnership,

Brent will open with a two-hour delay today. Students should arrive as close to 10:35 am as possible, since there is no Springboard coverage with the delay. If students arrive before 10:35 am, parents are responsible for staying with their child until 10:35 am. We’ll see everyone soon!
Over the past many weeks, many of you have participated on working groups, completed surveys, and provided input in other ways to our strategic planning process. Working groups are ready with initial findings and recommendations, and your feedback is critically important. Please join me and Working Group representatives on Wednesday, January 14 from 6:30-8:30pm for a special PTA meeting focused on Brent’s emerging strategic plan. We’ll have an extended PTA meeting with childcare provided for this important discussion. Our goal is to come to a common understanding of Brent’s strengths, most pressing challenges, and the way forward. You’ll have an opportunity to discuss our curriculum and foundational approaches, challenges in serving our struggling and advanced students, how to make the most of our specials and field experience programs, and what changes need to be made to maximize Brent and our students’ potential. This is your last opportunity for input before recommendations are finalized, so I hope many of you can attend.
Two-hour delayed opening tomorrow, 1/12. Students are free to arrive at 10am, and teachers will pick-up the students at 10:35am. Parents will be responsible for their child from 10-10:35am, there will not be Springboard coverage due to the late opening. We’ll see everyone soon!
