How do you commit to the Common Principles for three decades and beyond? We will share the Lehman Alternative Community School’s successes and challenges, including three building changes, several superintendents, numerous favorable and unfavorable school board members, transitioning to new principals, and dealing with the departure of founding staff members. We will also share the roles of parent/caregivers in a democratically run school, the transition to a high school doing graduation based on a credit system to a CES high school doing graduation by exhibition, the progress and set-backs in developing a digital portfolio system, and the current processes involved in developing middle school promotion by exhibition. We want to learn with you. Please bring your questions and stories of your experience of sustaining commitment to CES principles and related practices.
