Your FREE Board met on January 17, 2018, in Jacksonville at the offices of Foley & Lardner. The meeting was hosted by board member Kevin Hyde.
The meeting was very productive. Charles Hood was elected Chair of the FREE Board.
Each board member was provided a board manual that includes the expectations of each board member as well as
an overview of NEFEC programs and services. Dr. Patrick Wnek presented data specific to where participating districts are in reading, math, and overall student achievement. This information helps FREE focus on the work that needs to be supported. Grant opportunities were discussed and action plans were developed and assigned.
The next board meeting will be hosted by Phillip Pritchett at Pritchett Trucking in Lake Butler, Florida on February 28, 2018, at 10 a.m.
We are actively recruiting a few "great" people to join our board. They must have a passion for rural education and willing to be an advocate for our board and its programs. If you are interested in learning more, please call Judy Boles @ (352) 538-5108 or email: email@example.com
