In July, LHPUSD was accepted after a competitive application process to a national network of rural schools to participate in a Rural School Design Program. We will work with Transcend Education over the next 10 months to evaluate our current educational program and determine what is working well and identify areas for improvement and redesign. A core team of staff have been identified and will begin the groundwork with Transcend Education over the next month.
Phase one of the program will span August- January. Goals during this first phase are as follows:
Engage our school community in the program
Understand our current learning model
Prioritize areas for redesign
Share our findings in a community meeting
We will provide updates to the Rural School Design Program through the school newsletters and the monthly meetings of the Board of Trustees.
