Project Parkway Q & A

  • What is “Project Parkway?” 
    Launched in 2009, Project Parkway brings together members of the Parkway School District community to help set the future direction of our schools. Any district resident or employee is eligible to participate in the ongoing work of Project Parkway. Under the direction of the Parkway Board of Education, volunteers from the community will have an ongoing role to review the district’s progress toward meeting goals identified in Parkway’s five-year strategic plan. This plan is also called our Comprehensive School Improvement Plan (CSIP). 

    Who can get involved? 
    Any Parkway resident or employee may attend any of the Project Parkway meetings. All meetings are open to the public. 

    What is the time commitment? 
    In short, volunteers will meet about four times during the school year (September through May). Your initial commitment is one year, but you may continue for the following school year if you wish. 

    What is the role of the Project Parkway steering committee? 
    The steering committee represents a broad cross-section of Parkway parents, teachers, administrators and other residents. It is charged with setting the overall direction for Project Parkway, under the guidance of the school board. They will meet four times a year in addition to the quarterly meetings, so their time commitment is larger. For a list of committee members click here.
