We are currently at 65% of our fundraising goal
Next school year, we may not be using RevTrack to collect contributions. BVSD is planning on phasing RevTrack out after next school year.
Given our current grade level caps, we are projecting 362 students for next year because we are short students at Kindergarten
Proposal- “The FY24 enrollment cap will be 375 students and the HOS and faculty will work together to find appropriate spots for students on the waitlist.”- Motion to approve- Mike T
Second- Mike A
The board discussed the reduction of a 1.0 math interventionist and 0.25 middle school literacy interventionist for FY24
