Report for Information: School Board Meeting Format
Superintendent Funk presented a plan for the school board to reformat its monthly meeting schedule to be more effective and efficient. The first meeting of the month would be a study session to give school board members time to examine issues in-depth prior to approval at the business meeting. The second meeting of the month would be a regular board business meeting. The board expects to make the change to this format beginning in September.
