On December 6, the North Kingstown School Committee will have a special meeting to discuss Capital projects and a request for a bond initiative for November 2018. The Committee will also be meeting with the Town Council on December 11 to have its opening of budget season meeting. These two meetings are good opportunities to learn about upcoming funding challenges for the district.
On December 12, our school committee meeting will include a presentation from Pupil Personnel Director, Dr. Kim Carson and some of our principals concerning social emotional programming assessment and needs. This is a presentation I hope you will attend as it represents a major need for the school department.
