January Board Brief

Panther Nation,

January Board meetings are special because they are a time to recognize the great work of our Board of Trustees. The campuses recognized our invaluable School Board members with their creative artwork, letters, and banners for School Board Recognition Month. This was also a very important meeting as the incredible work of the Long Range Planning Committee was presented to the board as well as a new demographic report. The January Champions were highlighted, and the Education Foundation gave an update on the first cycle of Teacher Grants they awarded.
