Want to get involved????

We are looking for volunteers to serve on our District-wide Facilities Advisory Committee. This committee will meet in person about once per month to review district properties and determine the need for possible future district facilities and/or projects. The FAC will then present a proposal to the School Board for them to consider a future bond or capital levy election. If you'd like to find out more, click here.
