Principle’s Report:

Utilizing space and money for the future of all kids due to an overall decrease in kids and extra buildings (to heat, cool, run, etc.)  The board will vote on the survey to go out to the community.  Additional support for mental health, collaborative health, special education came up so once budget is more flexible, should building operations change, more/additional support funding can be provided.
