The board encourages community attendance at its monthly meetings, as stakeholder participation is important as the district strives to maintain excellent educational programs and seeks new opportunities for our learners. Your feedback is valuable to us and we encourage you to share your views on subjects related to our schools. Most questions and concerns can be addressed by contacting the classroom facilitator or building administrator. Please refer to the District Communications Guide for more contact information.

Please review the citizen participation section on this page for more information about the process for submitting a request to be added to a board meeting agenda or addressing the board during the open comment period.
