What is the State of the School? The State of the School is a regular Board meeting that has been identified to provide an update on the school year to the community. As part of our charter commitment, the Board must provide this overview every year. This year, you can expect to see updates from the committees on their activities, including financial and fundraising status related to goals, and the results of the community survey and TCAP results from last year.
