The academy sessions will include:

  • District overview, School/Community Relations and Partnerships

  • District Governance

  • District & State Budgeting and Funding

  • Pupil & Family Supports

  • Human Resources

  • District Operations, Facilities and Technology

  • Academic Performance

  • District: Vision of a Graduate, Strategic Planning and Where do we go from here?

“Public education has changed over the years and how a school runs differs from the memories of the adult stakeholders within this school district,” said Wauwatosa School District Superintendent, Demond Means. “The Wauwatosa School District has relationships made with District stakeholders already, however it is always possible to expand and strengthen those connections. There are opportunities to develop partnerships, ideas and generate better comprehension and communication between community members and the Wauwatosa School District.”

The Wauwatosa School District Community Leader Academy is an opportunity to deepen the understanding of the public school system in the Wauwatosa community.
