The Purpose

Our School Board is committed to providing families and community members pathways of connectivity to the education system.  Although the Board holds monthly formal business meetings, they would also like to engage in direct conversation with the public. 

Therefore, the school board has developed their "Conversation with a Board Member" series.  In this format, board members can engage in direct conversation with the community to exchange thoughts, ideas, listen and learn from students, staff, parents, families, and the community around school or district level topics.  Your voice matters.  

If you have a specific concern regarding your student, please work with your student's school site.
