Nov. 3rd School Board Meeting Major Agenda Items
2022-2023 Calendar Finalization!
This is one of my favorite parts of the School Board! The schedule is important to students when they need to take a break from academic work and focus on their mental health. The calendar also helps teachers know when they will have a work day and when they will need to have professional learning
