Friday Updates – March 1 2013

It’s March already!

The Arco Iris school board is working with our colleagues at the Beaverton School District on the school’s charter renewal. Our school operates on a 3-year contract with the district, and we are in our third year of our first agreement. All is going well and we are anticipating an official decision within the next month, then we move onto the details of our next contract. We are right on track and are very happy with the relationships we have built with the district these past three years. We are feeling supported at all levels and are looking forward to continuing our relationships with them.

The Arco Iris school board will have a working meeting next Tuesday, March 5th at 6:00 pm at Beaverton Christian Church. This meeting is open to the public, but there will be no public comment. The agenda will be posted on our Board Page no later than Monday.
