School Improvement Workshops
As you may know already, all Chicago schools complete a two-year improvement plan called the Continuous Improvement Work Plan (CIWP). The CIWP is used to develop school priorities and areas for improvement. Parent voice is important to this process, so Mr. Castelaz is inviting parents to participate in two workshops in March. Please consider attending one or both!
Wednesday, March 4: Pizza with the Principal 6-7pm
Friday, March 13: Coffee with Castelaz, 8-9am
Equity Team meeting
The NTA Equity Team reviews grade and discipline data quarterly to ensure that every aspect of NTA is viewed and reviewed from an equity lens. The team actively works on ways to foster “ONE NTA” that engages and shows value for all families. Meetings are open to everyone in NTA community, including families, students, and staff.
