Magnet Review Updates
School has begun and we are ready to begin implementing our magnet review recommendations. Our first recommendation was to create a task force or steering committee with various stakeholders to discuss the purpose, goals, and types of magnet programs that will continue to serve students in our district. The goals of the task force are to develop a five year strategic plan, monitor the implementation, and serve in an advisory capacity. Our first meeting was September 18. We included stakeholders from various departments across the district to ensure that all voices are represented as we implement some of the MSA recommendations. Two of our initial tasks were to create a mission statement to drive the work of this committee and divide up the responsibilities of the review. Stay tuned for further updates regarding the work of this steering committee.
