CURRENT SHARING RECAP
Principal Spotts and Principal Blunt shared how many students we share and explained how the sharing was working between the districts. Mr. Grebin explained how the business classes were working with the shared classes. Mrs. Mainquist told of the upcoming shared Career Day on March 15 that will be held in Red Oak and Stanton. There was discussion on what was working and not working with the sharing of classes. The largest hurdle is the scheduling issues. Also discussed was the future of shared extracurricular activities that Stanton is currently not offering. The consensus was that the sharing is going well and giving students more opportunities. The superintendents agreed to continue to work together to see if there would be other sharing opportunities that would be an asset to students and the school
President Bates adjourned the meeting at 7:40 PM.
