The board will also take action on food services for milk, dairy product and bread distributors for 2012-2013.

The board will also receive two reports before they vote on their ation items. Superintendent Corey Lunn will also present a report on Year Three of Vision 2014, outlining strategic planning for the school district’s vision.
