Class members gain an appreciation for the variety of issues facing today’s educators and the educational system and gain insight into how these issues impact our local education community (San Ramon Valley Unified School District). Members also have opportunities to observe student learning and school climate through classroom observations and shadowing the principal of a local school.
Day Chairs: Elizabeth Graswich (lead), Lisa Bobadilla, Kathy Chiverton, Andy Li, and Henry Perezalonso
This session begins at the San Ramon Valley Fire Protection District Board Room, where we will meet to pick up a “to-go” breakfast and review the day’s objectives. We will leave promptly at 8:20 am for a presentation at the City of Concord’s Council Chambers and a tour of the Concord ReUse Project (redevelopment of the Concord Naval Weapons Station) via bus. We will return to the SRVFPD Board Room for lunch and an afternoon of discussion and the group exercise.
