The Spring Rep Roundtable focused on briefing the parent reps about the high school Student Leader Breakfast and the Middle School Student Leader Forum. After an initial briefing reps broke into groups two groups, one focused on high school and one on middle school issues.
The parent reps in the group focused on middle school issues continued to discuss the Middle School Student Leader Forum. They talked about the meeting of the middle school deans, counselors, and other school administrators who met concurrently with the students. Many of the issues raised by the students were also raised by the school leaders. The reps in the high school group shared strategies for addressing alcohol and drug prevention, and how to best provide information to students. Both groups were reminded to use PCW as a sounding board to gather suggestions from how member schools address various issues. After the lively discussions, reps met with their PCW Board liaisons to provide any feedback about PCW programs and to make sure that any transitions from current reps are made smoothly to reps for the 2010-2011 school year. Summaries of the high school and middle school programs are available here.
