Westlake High School Changes Being Considered

The Saratoga Shores PTA works with other schools to get information to parents. If you have a student at Westlake (or you will next year), this information is relevant to you. Otherwise, you can ignore it.

Lisa Gibby is a member of the school community council at Westlake High School, representing the Saratoga Shores community. If you have a student at Saratoga Shores and also a student at Westlake High School, Lisa needs to hear any feedback you may have on a couple of items. They are:
1.  The school is looking at the way it does Parent/Teacher Conferences. At the last conference, we had less than a 25% turnout of parents. The idea that our principal has proposed is to have each teacher be available 2-3 times a term for "office time" when the parents and students could set up an appointment to meet with the teacher individually and doing away with the traditional parent/teacher conference.
2.  The school wants to improve the way class schedule changes are made. If your student tried to change his/her schedule during the class change days at the beginning of the year, you know what a difficult process it was. The school is looking at allowing the parents or student to contact the counselors during the summer through e-mail and making those changes before school begins.
If you have opinions about either of these policy changes, please contact Lisa at Thank you.
