Regional School Board Meets This Week

The next meeting of the Regional School Board for the Maggie L. Walker Governor’s School is set for Thursday, Nov. 8, at 9:00am in the MLWGS Board Room on the second floor (located diagonally across from the auditorium).  Parents are always welcome, be sure to arrive early to get a good seat!
The Regional School Board is composed of school board members from each participating school district and serves as the governing body for MLWGS. Attending meetings is an excellent way to keep informed and up to date about plans for MLWGS. For example, at the last Regional School Board meeting MLWGS Director Jeff McGee announced that the school plans to make ten additional slots available for students over the next four years. The deadline for school districts to claim these slots is Nov. 1, 2012.   At the Sept. 20 RSB meeting, Dr. Marcus Newsome reported for the Superintendant's Steering Committee that work will begin in earnest on the FY14 budget in January 2013 with a target date for Board action of April 2013.
