The Board of Education meets on the second and fourth Monday of each month at 6:00 p.m. in the Board Room at the Central Administration Building, 104 South 17th Street. Prior to Board election, members of the Board of Education include Stuart Cochrane, President; Brian Forsyth, Vice President; Bill Kent, Jan Merz, Deborah Peterson, Kevin Rogers, Matt Wagner.

Internet Access The Internet has become an essential tool for learning. Teachers create instructional activities that include the use of the Internet. On-line Internet resources are provided for staff and students. The Internet has become an integral part of the educational system and as a result, all students will obtain automatic Internet access. All Internet activity is monitored and filtered. While this approach to removing unwanted and inappropriate content from the Internet is desirable, it is not fully guaranteed. If staff or students happen to encounter inappropriate content, they must leave that website immediately. A record of time spent on a particular website/page is logged. The Internet is provided for the purpose of obtaining educational resources for school use. Entertainment (such as non-educational on-line games, music, videos, etc.) e-mail, interpersonal chatting and downloading or copying files are prohibited activities on the Internet. All students in grades PK-4 have supervised use of the Internet, while all 5-12 grade students have both supervised and independent use of the Internet. Students who do not use the Internet for the educational purposes for which it is intended will lose Internet access and as a result, the student will be required to use traditional resources to complete assignments. Please contact your school office if you DO NOT want your son or daughter to be allowed to use the Internet.
