Welcome CPA Parents!

We are ready to start a great year of adventures in learning!

Dear Parents and Guardians,

Welcome to Chandler Park Academy School District for the 2020-21 school year. The Chandler Park Academy staff and I are thankful and honored that you have chosen our school family to educate your child.

My name is Mr. Ken Williams and I am the District Director of Culture and Community Engagement. I have been a part of the CPA family for over 16 years. I have served as a teacher, dean of students, assistant principal and most recently, CPA Middle School principal. In my new role, I will be working as a liaison with parents, administration and the community to develop programs and opportunities for the CPA family. Also, I will be the coordinator of our District-wide Parent Teacher Organization (PTO), which we socially call our Parents as Partners Network (PPN).

As a former school administrator, I recognize that students are most successful when parents have a voice and place working in partnership with the school. I firmly believe in giving your child the best educational experience possible, and in order for this to happen, it is essential parents, that parents are active partners. I will be available to meet and talk with parents regarding issues or ideas they have for the CPA School District. My goal is to ensure that you and your student have a positive educational journey at CPA.

I am formally inviting all of you out to our District-Wide PPN meetings that will take place every 3rd Wednesday at 5 p.m. virtually during this time. This is a parent-led group, and at the meeting you can learn of some great things that are going on at each school that you may not know about, learn what parents are doing to make the school district better, get parent resources, sign up to become a volunteer, and to have a fun time coordinating social events and working with other parents who want the best for their child as well.

If you ever have any suggestions, issues, questions, comments or concerns and need my assistance in any way, please don’t hesitate to reach out to me via email at williamsk@chandlerparkacademy.net
