Weekly Update 1/26/24

Dear ACA Community,

It was great to be back in the building with everyone this week! A special thank you to staff, teachers, parents, and students for your flexibility as you fit in Applied Learning Days and rescheduled end of semester showcases, performances, and field trips.

On Tuesday afternoon Oregon City School District’s Superintendent, Dr. Dayle Spitzer, visited ACA. We value our relationship with OCSD, the sponsors of our charter school. She is supportive of our program and the niche ACA fills in the district.  Not many classes were in session when we toured the building, but she did get to enjoy part of Mr. Lute’s Guitar I/II class and was very impressed! ACA has a reputation in the district for having a wonderful music department.

Another highlight for me this week was getting a chance to sit in on a ‘Teams’ meeting. Cohorts of ESes and Teachers have been formed based on the grade levels primarily served (K-5, 6-8, 9-12). The ‘Teams’ spend a structured hour sharing and training each month. I was so impressed with their focus on strategies to support student success. ACA’s staff is the best!

Go Eagles, 

Shelly Smith
