Due to the complexity of activities taking place at each campus, we created a Flood Recovery Campus Status Report page on our website so that you can track the specific progress of each school. We will continue to update this webpage as work progresses. Additionally, in response to several inquiries, we created a Frequently Asked Questions page so that you can stay fully informed.
Included in this update is information on AdvancEd Accreditation Visit; Flood Recovery Status Update; 2016 Bond Projects Status Update; and School Board Recognition Month.
