• Board of Education Update: POSSIBLE Meeting on TUESDAY, MARCH 31 at 5:45 pm

    The Board of Education may be meeting on Tuesday, March 31 at 5:45 pm at the Kolak Education Center, 1500 Fourth Street.  At this time, the meeting is tentative as we explore how to conduct this meeting while keeping the health and well-being of our community, board members and district staff a priority during these times.

    As many health officials have shared, social distancing is one of the important and proactive ways in which to flatten the infection curve, as the coronavirus can be spread easily by people who do not yet display any symptoms. While we are hopeful this pandemic will recede, we want to be cognizant of the fact that the coronavirus can spread quickly and rapidly.

    As more information becomes available, we will update you here and on BoardDocs!

Welcome to the Board of Education

  • BoardDocs
    The Board of Education has been using Cloud-based technology to improve the governance process while saving staff time and taxpayer dollars.  The remarkably easy-to-use service (BoardDocs) has allowed the organization to maximize the effectiveness of its meetings with increased transparency, providing a basis for better and more open communication with the public, while dramatically improving productivity and saving thousands of dollars annually.  ALL MEETINGS are posted on BoardDocs and are Featured for your convenience through at least the date of the meeting.  After that date, they are still available on BoardDocs under the year and date they were held.
