Collaborative Education Workshops to Help Guide Wyckoff Schools

District: "The goal is to clarify, augment, and improve the concepts and thinking."

Members of the Wyckoff Board of Education and Wyckoff Schools Superintendent Richard Kuder have worked closely this year to develop a process they hope will engage the community in a transformative conversation about planning for the future of township schools.  

This month and next, during the first phase of this process, separate workshops for key groups of community members will take place.  

These workshops will involve a guided discussion of significant ideas underpinning the guiding principles for future planning. Kuder has developed a draft of these guiding ideas for the board and community to critique.

Workshop attendees will be provided with the opportunity to learn these ideas and then participate in a collaborative critical analysis through sharing of personal views and questions.  

"The goal is to clarify, augment, and improve the concepts and thinking," the Board of Education wrote in a statement. "The expectation is to listen to a vigorous discussion and healthy debate to improve and inform future phases of the strategic planning initiative."

Emerging ideas and points of consensus will be shared with the Board of Education in the form of a first report.

"We hope you will join us in working on this important endeavor," the district wrote in a statement to community members. "Please confirm your interest and attendance for the workshop by registering online."
