At the Sept. 27 Board Meeting, several groups were recognized by Trustees.
Outgoing NEIC members recognized
The Board of Trustees recognized outgoing members of the Northside Educational Improvement Council (NEIC), which includes 19 parents, community members, and business representatives appointed by Board members. In addition, 19 professional staff members and one paraprofessional elected by their peers also serve on the Council. State legislation provided establishment of councils to “involve the professional staff of the District in establishing and reviewing the district's educational goals, objectives, and major district-wide classroom instructional programs." Members serve two-year staggered terms.
