Rancho Santa Fe School District to hold parent forum on homework, tutoring, study skills

The Rancho Santa Fe School District will host the second in a series of new parent forums on Monday, Oct. 12, at 8:05 a.m. The first forum, held in collaboration with the Rancho Santa Fe Education Foundation’s parent volunteer team, was held on Sept. 8 and discussed behavior and discipline. District superintendent Lindy Delaney said she felt the forum worked very well.

“I thought the format seemed very productive and constructive,” echoed RSF School Board Vice President Tyler Seltzer at the Sept. 11 board meeting. “I hope the parents felt the same way.”

The forums are the result of an effort to improve communication with parents and gather feedback on issues that parents want the district to “dig a little deeper on,” Delaney said.

Each month’s forum will center on a specific topic for a 90-minute discussion and parents can fill out cards with comments or questions. Each forum will end with a district update.

The topic of the Oct. 13 meeting will be homework, tutoring and study skills. The Nov. 10 meeting will be a discussion on school board governance and budget. The meeting will start a little later at 8:40 a.m. and run to 10:10 a.m. due to the Veterans Day assembly.

There will be no forum in December and 2016 forum topics are yet to be determined.
