Dear Chittenden and Mendon Residents,


During the last year, the Barstow Unified Union School Board (BUUSB) has participated in board training on good governance with plans to continue this training in the future. The central aim of Policy Governance is to help us, the board, enable Barstow to achieve its goals as efficiently and effectively as possible.  This means we are changing the way we do our business, starting with the creation of a shared vision for Barstow.  This work must include your voice because we represent you, the owners of our community school.  


To this end, we would like to invite you to view with us  “Most Likely to Succeed”, a documentary that shows how schools are changing to meet the demands of public education in the 21st century.  


Please join us at 7:00 PM in the hall at Barstow Memorial School on April 3rd to view this movie and to begin our work together.  


As we host future community forums, we welcome your participation, voice, and perspectives in defining the strategic outcomes/ends for Barstow Memorial School.


Respectfully,


Kathleen Cunningham

Upcoming Events or New

Barstow students join the other schools in RNESU to create a giant 2,300 square foot mural at Compass Music and Art Center in Brandon. The center will be holding a reception on April 7th. Watch the newscast here.



Imagine…..

the future of our schools in the 21st century.


The Barstow Unified Union School Board invites you to watch a film that immerses you in the lives of teachers and students in one school and inspires us all to create, innovate, and create a new learning environment.


The future of education must be a learning environment that ignites passions, leveraging the expertise and aspirations of our community. To get there, we must imagine together.


Please join us in a showing of this inspiring film on the future of education to be followed by a discussion.
