We are pleased to report that our District (Grades TK-8) Stakeholder Input Meeting on February 4th was extremely successful and productive. Priorities were developed by team members who served on the Division teams and it was determined that the pre-scheduled February 27th meeting would not be necessary. At the February 11th meeting of the Board of Trustees, a report was provided which included a review of the "Priorities" that were established by the District team. All materials that were reviewed and evaluated by all groups were included in the Board Packet for the February 11th meeting. Please visit the following link for detailed information.
