  • Addressing learning loss among our student population
  • Improving the air quality in our schools and facilities
  • Preparing and responding to all COVID-19 issues and challenges our district faces
  • Purchasing educational technology (including hardware, software and connectivity) for the district
  • Implementing all activities necessary to maintain the district operations and services and employing existing district staff
