There are so many interesting ways to be involved here at Horizons K-8. Here is one of them.
Horizons is looking for a District Parent Council Representative. Please let John know if this might be a service position you would be willing to take on. This representative also give a report out at our monthly Council meetings the third Thursday of the month.
The District Parent Committee (DPC) serves as a conduit for two-way communication between the Superintendent and parents. The Superintendent has an opportunity to garner input from parents prior to establishing policy while parents get an opportunity to present ideas and share comments about their school. In addition, DPC often hosts presentations from the district or from the outside sources. Typical topics include bond issue, child safety, school security, no child left behind and upcoming legislation. Also, a representative from the school board may ask for input on upcoming issues. Although not the main purpose, parents often connect with other parents to share ideas on improving schools, funds raising, and general parenting issues.
DPC meetings are held one Wednesday night of every school month at 6:30 p.m. in the PDC of the BVSD Education Center located at 6500 Arapahoe, Boulder, CO 80303
