Strategic planning update, STEM on board’s docket

Independent School District 834 Board members will receive an update on the strategic planning team’s feedback on improvements to the district at tonight’s school board meeting.

The planning team is evenly split, with half the group district staff members and the other half being community members. The team is in charge of determining what changes are needed to improve the district.

Marna Canterbury will also talk about the PowerUP initiative. PowerUP hopes to create community change when it comes to eating healthy and exercising for the people in the St. Croix Valley area. The school district plans on joining in the effort.

The school board meeting takes place at Stillwater City Hall at 7 p.m.

Earlier in the evening at the school board learning session Dr. Mary Anderson and Mike Redmond will present an update on year two of the STEM initiative.

The school board learning session begins at 5:30 p.m. at the Stillwater Library.
