D34 Board Meetings: Virtual for Now
Public Hearing: 2020 Tax Levy
Before the regular meeting, the Board of Education held a public hearing on the 2020 Tax Levy. Assistant Superintendent for Business Services Eric Miller reviewed information presented at previous Board meetings. He explained that the Board is considering a 4.87% levy, though the expected actual increase is 2.87% over the 2019 extension.
There were no comments during the community participation period. In the regular meeting, the Board approved the levy.
Each month, Superintendent Dr. Dane Delli updates the Board of Education and the community about programs, events, notable achievements, and other timely information and celebrations.
Student Award Winner Recognition
Dr. Delli introduced Executive Director for Student Services Mary Geraghty to recognize Attea student Cidney Poshi-Sinani, who received the 2020 Infinitec Outstanding Student Technology Award. Ms. Geraghty and Assistive Technology Facilitator Erin Ross shared, in a video interview and recording, how Cidney uses the "Eye Gaze" technology to communicate and create.
Adaptive Pause Update
Dr. Delli expressed hope to have more accurate and widespread information about vaccine distribution and administration from health agencies in the coming weeks.
