Would you be willing to serve on our District Strategic Planning Team on the evenings of May 2, 5:30-8:00 pm and May 9, 6:30-8:00 pm to help set the direction of the district over the next school year?

As part of the federal Every Student Succeed Act (ESSA) requirements, the team will review district and student data to set district goals under each of the four strategic areas of:

  • Student Engagement and Learning;
  • Human Resources;
  • Service and Partnership; and
  • Finances.

Please consider joining us as we set our direction for the 2018-19 school year. RSVP by using this link or contacting Jolene Meyer at 920-748-4600 or Food and beverages will be provided. Let us know if you need childcare.

I hope to see you there,
