Gunn Parents and Students Invited to WASC Info Night and Focus Groups

Gunn Parents and Students are invited to a WASC Info Night on Monday Feb 10, 6:15-7:15pm, in the Gunn Staff Lounge. Come and learn about how you can help shape the future of our school! The WASC Accreditation process will determine important aspects of Gunn’s direction in the coming years, and parents and students are a critical part of that process. The meeting will be co-sponsored by the Gunn Site Council.

Parents are invited and encouraged to join a WASC Focus Group. You’ll work in mixed groups with school staff and students to help analyze data about various aspects of the school, and will have the opportunity to give substantive input about what we’re doing well, and what we should be working to improve. We use the process to set our goals for the next six years, and your participation is both valued and critically important! The time commitment is about 6-10 hours total, spread across 7-8 meetings (see above for meeting dates/times). If you’d like to volunteer, please fill out the form in the most recent Gunn Connection Enews, or contact the WASC Coordinator, Tara Firenzi, at
