ISD 709 Families Invited to Join School Continuous Improvement Teams

When schools, families and communities work together more students achieve at higher levels. Knowing that, we’re inviting families to become more involved in school leadership teams, which are called Continuous Improvement Teams or CITs.

  • The team includes building administration, teacher leaders, and parents/guardians. Its purpose is to improve student achievement for all learners.
  • Team meeting dates and times are the decision of each school. In general, teams meet 1-2 time(s) per month for 1-2 hour(s) before or after school. New CIT members receive introductory training.
  • CITs also focus on equity. ISD 709 follows the Ten Minnesota Commitments to Equity. In addition, and uses the Tool for Equity Accountability to help make decisions and consider impact.

We encourage families to consider joining their school CIT and helping with this important work.  

Please contact your school principal if you're willing to the make commitment.
