Alignment SW Charlotte to Hold Planning Meeting for 2015-2016 on August 14

Sign Up to Attend and Share your Ideas for Steele Creek Schools!

ASWC(July 31, 2015) Another CMS School Year is about to begin, and the results from last year were fantastic because of our community's ongoing engagement and support in helping plan how we can best work together in aiding children so they reach their human and economic potential in today's world.

Please join Olympic and its K-8 feeder schools as they conduct the planning session for the 2015-2016 school year as part of Alignment Southwest Charlotte -- a "cradle to career" movement where Steele Creek K-12 public schools, churches, colleges, nonprofits, and the business community join forces and align efforts as a community-wide coalition determined to make our youth "Be Future Ready" for Charlotte.
