SURVEY: Tell us what HQ services were most helpful
METCO's new structure has been in place for about a year, and we’d like to understand what we're doing well and what we can do better. If you can take 3-5 minutes to tell us what has been useful, what we can improve, and what you want to see more of, it will give us invaluable perspective to ensure we truly support the METCO mission by your side.
Outreach: Dorchester Reporter & Encuentro Latino
The Headquarters team continues to spread the word about the new application system. This week, METCO Coordinator Kenlyne Exume visited more than a dozen agencies in Roxbury, trading flyers and letting staff members know that parents can sign up online now. Enrollment Director Wilmary Tejeda dropped by the popular weekly Spanish-language TV show Encuentro Latino, where she updated host Angel Salcedo on the application window. And readers of the Dorchester Reporter looking for local election coverage saw our eye-catching ad (left)!
