Visioning Task Force Members

To help determine the academic programming options and extracurricular activities available to future high school students, a 30-member Visioning Task Force was assembled by an open-application process. These individuals were chosen based on their experience in curriculum and program development, who exemplified innovative instructional design in a classroom setting and who had experience in fostering community partnerships.

Tentatively, the task force will attend nine monthly meetings in addition to conducting various research studies and focus groups. This process is anticipated to last through May of 2018. After the Visioning Task Force has determined how to provide the best programming options for students, they will reconvene with the Steering Committee to present their findings and together, the Visioning Task Force and Steering Committee will provide a final recommendation and roadmap to the Board of Education in the summer of 2018.
