Upcoming meetings on District's school redesign initiative

By Marilyn Vaccaro on Jul 30, 2014 05:14 PM

Two informational sessions will be held, one tomorrow evening and the second on Aug. 12. Those who participate will be able to learn more about the application process and the specifics of the initiative itself.
