Come Join Summit Learning Parent Focus Groups

Parent Focus Groups

This year, Penns Valley is piloting a student learning platform called Summit in grades 6, 9 and 10. The Summit model is comprised of the following:

Teaching Habits of Success
Mentoring - each student has an individual mentor
Personalized Learning
Projects

If you are a parent of a 6th, 9th and 10th grader, we would love to hear your thoughts as we begin to analyze the effectiveness of the Summit learning platform. Our analysis, which will include a variety of student, parent, teacher, and classroom data, will help us determine how we will move forward for next school year.

Over the next several weeks, we collecting parent information in two ways:

1. All parents of 6, 9, and 10 students will be asked to complete an online survey.
2. We will be conducting parent focus groups on March 28th beginning at 5:30 pm. If you would like to be part of the focus groups, please contact Tammy Glasgow at 814-422-2000 ext 3000 to sign up. All focus groups will be held in the high school media center.
