What's an academic policy without teacher input?

The main goal is to align proposed policies with current teaching practices and establish the necessary processes/systems to help teachers and students reach our Destination 2025 goals. Who could possibly have better insight on this than teachers? The input session will take place on Tuesday, March 27, from 3:30 - 5:30 pm in the Barnes Building of the BOE, conference Room 214. Spaces are limited, so please RSVP by COB Friday, March 23, to Alisha Green at
