Board of Education Meeting August 24 @ 5:30

The Board will be meeting tomorrow (Monday) at 5:30 p.m. (note time change) on the 3rd floor of the Ed Center. This is still a "summer" meeting, so the agenda is not giant. Also, I believe Board member Sheila Brogan will be away.

Highlights of the agenda (which you can read full by clicking here) include:
-- approving new textbooks and software for the new SAIL program at RHS and Spanish for grades K-2;
-- approving new curriculum for the year;
-- approving the Fall sports schedule;
-- some staff resignations and appointments;
-- approval of some contracts, including changing the district's dental insurance carrier

Our next meeting after this one will be September 14, after school starts.
