The purpose of the Vision work is for students, parents, staff and community members to dream for our future graduates. What skills and knowledge do they need to be prepared after they leave our schools? The Board will then take the feedback from the meetings and determine our Vision and Board Goals. Meetings are scheduled throughout March & April in various sites across the district. All meetings are from 6:30 to 8:00 pm.  Click here to learn more.
