The School Commission meets the third Wednesday of every month, and members of the Commission meet all of their volunteer hour requirements by participating. If you are interested in considering this for the 2024-2025 school year, applications will be due April 11, 2024. Applicants are invited to the School Commission meeting on Wednesday, April 17th.
