FWCS leaders solicit parents’ input on school curriculum

FORT WAYNE, Ind. (WPTA21) – A series of curriculum review meetings are taking place this week at community schools in Fort Wayne. Leaders say it’s an effort to increase transparency.

District Leaders invite parents to review books, lesson plans and materials for their English/Language Arts classes as they prepare for their next school year. The meetings take place on Monday for primary school families and Wednesday for middle school and high school families. Both meetings start at 6:00 p.m. at the FWCS Family and Community Engagement Center, 230 E. Douglas Ave., or via Zoom.

Maria Norman is a parent and school board member who says she plans to attend both meetings in hopes of getting a better idea of ​​what her son is learning at school.

“I have never trusted any staff member or teacher at FWCS,” Norman said. “Every day when I drop him off at school, I trust he’s going to learn.”

She says she hopes her son can become a stronger writer and be exposed to more types of literature. Norman says this meeting is important for parents to understand that the district is trying to be more transparent.

“To me, it’s more about being involved as opposed to going out to have an unhappy conversation,” Norman said.

District spokeswoman Krista Stockman says they’ve always asked parents for input on their school curriculum, but they’re trying to be even more transparent.

“Parents will be able to see the different materials from the companies. They can learn more about our process and get their feedback,” Stockman said. “We know we are not alone. Parents are an integral part of education, so their involvement is very important to us. »
