Stargate Governance 101:
Why is the Board reviewing the Bylaws? With the plans for the new High School on track to start our first 9th grade class next year, the Bylaws will need to be updated to reflect the school expansion. Over the next few months, the Board will be discussing potential changes that will be needed for the expansion and will be reaching out to the community for comment and official voting.
