Community Members Speaking

The School Board hosts community forums throughout the school year as an opportunity for community members to engage in direct conversation. Forums connect community members with the Board Directors to further understand what the School Board does, and to share thoughts on how we can work together to create a school district that ensures all students are prepared to succeed in college, career, and life.

Forums are open to students, families, and community members. It is important that all voices are heard. Please join us to share your thoughts, exchange ideas, listen and learn.
