Education Committee

The Education Committee monitors the district’s education system in its broadest sense. It acts as a reviewing body for curriculum proposals and district policies. The committee reviews state and federal legislations that impact the district and studies the research findings of professional education associations. It initiates analysis of new issues and is currently exploring methods for preparing students for the future.
