Special PTO Meetings

The Lyndale PTO invites guest speakers to attend several PTO meetings throughout the school year. Past speakers have discussed: 

  • The State of the School: The annual State of the School and Title I meeting provides information to parents/guardians about the current state of the school and the School Improvement Plan. The school shares its priorities, goals, and strategies for improvement, as well as ideas for how families can stay engaged throughout the year. This meeting also explains the purpose of Title I and the ongoing communication parents/guardians can expect to receive regarding their child’s progress. 
  • MCA Results: The district's director of research, evaluation, and assessment comes every year to review Lyndale’s Minnesota Comprehensive Assessments (MCA) test results.
