Student Dashboards will be updated by this weekend with student progress for Learning Cycle 2. Please refer to the Snapshot and Growth tabs on your student’s dashboard for an overview of their progress toward their requirements. If you’ve lost the link to your student’s dashboard then email Julia at Bambaj@gibsonek.org or reach out to your student’s advisor if you have any questions about their dashboard progress and learning.

Strategic planning work proceeds this week, with a work study session prior to the regular School Board meeting as well as a regular session discussion item. The district is creating a three-year strategic plan that will identify specific goals, strategies for reaching those goals, and metrics to measure progress.
At this week’s School Board meeting, staff and board members will continue discussions about the 2023-24 budget process. The recommended reduction for next year is about $9.8 million, with 81% of that amount at the central Administration Building and Operations. A Reduction in Force (RIF) of certificated staff members is not part of the proposed reductions.
