Board of Ed Meeting

Monday’s Board meeting featured all of the elementary buildings presenting on our current status of the SIP plan and associated data.   Sarah Kalis, Megan Schultz, Melissa Hool, and students Gerry Klos and Kaylee Daniels joined us for the Arno presentation.  I wanted to thank everyone for all their hard work and dedication to make learning the best it can be at Arno.  Great job team!

The other agenda item for the night was adopting Singapore Math as the new new math series (not curriculum) for the elementary schools.  This has been an exciting process and the elementary staff is eager to get training for our fall 2016 implementation of the new program.  More information will be coming out as get closer to next school year, including info for parents on the program.
