School Board Notes

School Board Meeting Notes – 2/08/17

 

The Highlights: 
  • High School shared their good news, including changes to department approaches to learning- such as the History Department changing its model of teaching from one of content to a skills based approach- and changes to the Science and Math departments, which focus on providing incoming freshmen with more inclusive and collaborative approaches.
  • Director of Business Services provided a preliminary overview of the 2017-2018 WFB school budget and is optimistic that some of the proposed increases in funding and his inital read on numbers will result in a well balanced budget.
  • The governor’s first draft of the budget came out just prior to the meeting and the preliminary glance showed indications that funding for public education may be taking some priority this year, though Mr. Yde was cautious in his outlook as it was so early in the process, and reminded that vigilance and advocacy will still be needed.
