  • Superintendent’s Report

Facility Team meeting with ALSC Architects, from Spokane, to start the facilities discussion.  The first meetings will be March 1st & 2nd and then a more in-depth structural visit on March 16th and 17th.

Two separate families have approached Brad to provide scholarships for students and for staff through an educational foundation to support kids in the Chelan Valley.  These groups want to know what the steps are required to be public partners with the district for opportunities.

There is only a finite amount of dollars in the valley and the district doesn’t want to compete with other regional 501c3 organizations.  A big concern from the Board would be about sustainability of a foundation.  There was discussion about these families working directly with current regional non-profit groups.  Brad will do more research and refer to board policy.



This was a 1st reading and the Board will review updates again at the next meeting.

Jeff moved and Barb seconded a motion to approve the 2023-24 and 2024-25 calendars as presented; motion carried.
