2017-18: Superintendent Parent Forums

Every year, Superintendent Tom Boasberg hosts the Superintendent Parent Forums in collaboration with the Office of Family and Community Engagement (FACE) and the English Language Acquisition Department. The parent forum has been a great way for the Superintendent to communicate and connect with schools and parents district-wide.

The Superintendent Parent Forum includes the English Language Acquisition District Advisory Committee (ELA DAC), which provide parents of the more than 40,000 DPS students who speak languages other than English an opportunity to engage with district leadership on important issues.
