See Update and Grade-Level Representatives for our People Helping People Concept

Dear Hance Families,
 
People Helping People Last week, we reached out to gauge interest in helping to create a collaborative support network among our families during the continuity of learning model implementation. This concept emerged from feedback we received from a parent, who was offering her assistance to others. The parent recognized that she had the capacity to provide support given her family’s circumstances. This particular parent had the ability to manage her one child’s work schedule and recognized the difficulty that others may be facing due to managing multiple children spanning different grade levels or different job situations.  The dynamics of each family’s experience are unique and range from simple to very complex.
 
Each week, Dr. Miller, Dr. Pasquinelli, and Dr. Justus are spending time checking in via phone calls with 42 families across the district K-12. These same families are contacted once a week to solicit feedback with regard to key areas of strength and opportunities for improvement based on the current learning model. During these check-ins, themes are identified by grade span and building with goals being set for the following week. We are living the continuous improvement model.
 
Our goal is to provide a supportive network composed of volunteers, willing to offer feedback on the logistics of locating assignments, how the day is structured for their children at home, and to share tips and tricks to help one another during this challenging time.
 
Below is a list of individuals per grade level at Hance Elementary that are willing to serve as a supportive resource to others. Any family needing “non-academic” assistance in navigating the model should feel free to reach out for a quick chat or some support from these volunteers. Thank you to the individuals below who signed up for this opportunity. We appreciate everyone’s engagement during this time!
