Join a North Shore Schools District Committee


Dear North Shore Community,
It is hard to believe that it is October 1st already!  I have enjoyed seeing your children again and we have launched an excellent new year of teaching and learning.  
Now that our students, faculty, staff, and administration are settled into routines, it is time for us to begin forming our various District committees and task forces that will work to implement our 2018-2023 Strategic Plan that was recently unanimously adopted by the Board of Education. You will see that we have established an ambitious agenda and would like to invite you to join us in the work.  Please click on the link below where you can indicate your preferences for participation on one of our District Committees. We are seeking 2-3 parents and/or community members for each committee. The survey will remain open until Tuesday, October 9, 2018   at 9:00 am.
