Welcome to the 2020-2021 school year, Jaguars!

I am your Community Outreach Chair and super excited to get to know you!  My focus is on building greater inclusivity for families of color and special education through such things as antiracism training and advocacy, resource referrals and support, and listening and lending my first-hand knowledge about the IEP process.

I encourage you to reach out if you would like more information on equity in education.  Also stay on the lookout for communications from me on remote and (and hopefully soon, in person) opportunities for building community.  It will take everyone’s participation to make systemic change and lift up every student at JAMS.

Hope to hear from you soon!
In Community,

Friendly Vang-Johnson
