Get Involved

The Carter G. Woodson School is committed to building a positive partnership built upon trusting relationships between our teachers, staff and the parents and guardians of our students.

  • Kitchen Table Discussion Talk Time (4x/year meeting to gauge parent response and recommendations on school improvement.
