He thanked Roberta Marcus for submitting it.


Mrs. Roth and Mr. Cohen voted not to pay for the cyber charter school bill as a symbol of their concern for tax payer dollars that are mandated to support under achieving schools.


Rich Sniscak commented that we kicked off New Teacher Orientation this week with about 24 new staff on Monday and he thanked HR and C&I for putting this wonderful induction program together. Dave Kennedy welcomed them this week and is excited to have them begin.


All staff will return to school on August 29th and the first day of school will be September 5th.


The Board thanked Dr. Troutman for the Goals Report. They wished the staff the best for a great start to the school year.
