3. Adopt - Resolution No. 839: Women's History Month

March is nationally recognized as Women's History Month. Per SB 48 and AR 6143, throughout the year, elementary and secondary teachers use pieces of literature where women assume traditional and non-traditional professional roles. In their classroom instruction, teachers also use novels written by female authors. In the areas of math and science, information is shared throughout the year about famous female mathematicians and scientists. Staff members at school sites are careful to provide information about women in all roles in our society, drawing students' attention to the noted as well as the underrepresented contributions that women have provided historically and in modern times.

By adopting Resolution No. 839, designating one month with a focus on women's history, the Board of Trustees communicates the value of such instruction. 

4. Present & Approve - Twin Rivers 2019/20 Second Interim Report and Positive Certification

School district governing boards are required to certify twice a year regarding their ability to meet their financial obligations for the remainder of the year and for the subsequent two fiscal years. There are three different certifications of financial condition: positive, qualified, or negative certification. A positive certification indicates that based upon current projections, the district will be able to meet its financial obligations for the current fiscal year or two subsequent fiscal years. The certification, along with accompanying documents are referred to as the Interim Reports.

The Board approved the Twin Rivers  2019/2020 Second Interim Report and Positive Certification.
