I spoke with Sara Leikin to re-introduce myself and inform her that I'd be her principal contact with LA A+. Her staff is nearing completion with only a second grade teacher left to hire. She and her team of 10 are eagerly awaiting the summer institute, and she has all the curricular materials necessary for her team to begin mapping. Her budget this academic year will be very lean as a major grant applied for fell through. The positive note is that her enrollment is very strong and nearing capacity.
Thank you, Keith, for contacting Sara. The information she shared will help us with planning. It is going to be fun helping this team get to know each other and establish a framework for their work together.
