On tonight's Board of Ed agenda...

Yes, there's all kinds of activity happening within the district, besides the upcoming referendum (Vote tomorrow!). Here are some highlight's from tonight's meeting agenda:

* Choir Performance by RHS Madrigals
* Report on districtwide test scores
* Referendum update (of course!)
* Approval of new high school courses (discussed at last meeting and listed here)
* Approval of our "articulation agreement" with Bergen Community College, which allows some of our high school students to receive college credit for courses they take at RHS (cool way to make college a little easier and/or less expensive!)
* Various staff appointments, resignations, changes of assignment
* Grateful acceptance of generous donations
* Discussion of revised policies on use of school facilities
* Opportunities for Public Comment

The meeting starts at 7:30 p.m. (CORRECTION) on the 3rd floor of the Ed Center. You can watch the live webcast by clicking here, or watch the archived webcast beginning tomorrow (and fast forward through the less-than-exciting parts!).
