Last year, we had over 200 staff and community members who participated in several committees. The committees had enriching conversations which led to several recommendations for change.
It is time to sign up for committee work for the 2016-17 school year. The offerings below provide a brief description of this year’s committees. If you are interested in participating in any of the committees, please contact the individual(s) next to each committee for more information by Monday October 31st.
