Curriculum/Policy- Bohaty shared that the committee had a learning model update and discussed plans for self contained classrooms for next year’s 5th and 6th grades.

Education Cooperative had contracted with ICS to work on the possible development of a 9-12 level four facility, which would provide services for students with very specialized individual needs.
