Rooted School Vancouver - Public Forum

Website

Description

Rooted School Vancouver, a first-of-its-kind public high school seeking approval to open in Vancouver, WA fall 2022. Rooted School prepares underrepresented and underestimated students for careers in technology directly after high school. You can learn more about the school model [here] (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=mUty3y1TjDE). Currently, we’re in the final stages of the charter authorization process and could use your help.

On Wednesday, November 18, at 6PM PST we will have our virtual public forum which is an opportunity for state Commissioners, parents, community members, local residents, and other members of the public to learn about Rooted School Vancouver’s proposed school and team and to provide feedback about the model.

Dear Washington State Charter Commissioners,

My name is [insert name] and I am [insert role, i.e., community member, business leader, educator, parent, student, etc.]. Please accept my public comment in support of Rooted School Vancouver being granted a charter to open a public high school in partnership with the Vancouver community. I believe our community needs more options that set students up for job success in the local economy, and Rooted School Vancouver is looking to provide that.

Dear Washington State Charter Commissioners,

My name is [insert name] and I am [insert role, i.e., community member, business leader, educator, parent, student, etc.]. I strongly support the authorization of Rooted School Vancouver because students in our community would benefit from a school that helps them to develop work-force AND college-ready skills.

Dear Washington State Charter Commissioners,

My name is [insert name] and I am [insert role, i.e., community member, business leader, educator, parent, student, etc.]. I am excited to support Rooted School Vancouver in their mission to provide personal pathways to financial freedom for young people and families across Vancouver. The Rooted team has demonstrated unprecedented results in New Orleans and Indianapolis, and I’m confident will have a positive impact in Vancouver in the years to come.

Really appreciate your support in any shape or form!
