News from the Board:
"In case you missed it": The Board last met on September 17th for a regular business meeting where they reviewed and approved the Admission Policy for the new High School (grades 9 through 12), agreed to the proposed fall election budget, reviewed the fundraising plan for the 2014-215 school year, and received an update on the status of the new campus.

In addition, the Board held their annual strategic planning session on September 19th there they began the process of reviewing the Bylaws to assure alignment with the new High School, discussed the key performance indicators, and participated in a team building activity with the Principal and Business Manager to practice "holding the rope" for each other with some rock climbing.

Upcoming Board Meetings:
October 15th: Business Meeting at 6:30 PM at Stargate
November 19th:  Business Meeting at 6:30 PM at Stargate

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 may 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.

A BIG thank you from the Board to the Election Committee.  They stepped up to help with a quick turnaround for our fall elections to make sure that the election timeline was able to stay on track.
