Measure What Matters, A Raise Your Hand Texas Listening Circle

Please join us for an opportunity to have your opinion and voice heard around the way we test and measure our students and schools. Skylar Gallop, the Panhandle’s Regional Advocacy Director for Raise Your Hand Texas will be sharing with us her organization’s campaign, Measure What Matters, which is gathering Texans opinions around the STAAR test and A-F campus accountability system. They will use that data to drive their process of drafting legislation they’ll take into the next legislative session, looking to improve these systems. Bottom line: If you care about the way we measure our children, teachers and schools, here’s a chance to advocate for them. Skylar is a member of our local chapter, an ally in advocacy and friend. I hope to see you there. Snacks and beverages will be provided.
