TOWN HALL MEETING:
DISTRICT 15 STRATEGIC PLANNING PROCESS

to discuss the draft outline of the District 15 strategic plan, hosted by the community engagement group OurD15Voice and the District 15 board and administration. The meeting will be held in the Winston Campus cafeteria from 7-8:30 p.m.
The school district is developing a strategic plan to provide clear direction and vision for the organization over the next several years.
