Objectives and Suggestions

Below is the Discussion Forum which will be used for posting information you think may start a back and forth discussion with other group members.  The body of the Discussion which the author posts can be edited as often as necessary by the author to add information in the future.  Replies posted by others can only be edited for a very brief period by the person posting.  Please proofread it carefully before you post.

The Comment Wall below the Discussion Forum is best suited for posting information that you do not expect to initiate a discussion with and that you want completely visible to someone scrolling down this group page.

Note to the right of this box below the Members box is the Pages box.  The first entry is a page with School Board & Superintendent Contact Info.  That page is followed with a number of index pages to help you find what you are looking for.

SWCC Education Committee Meeting are held on the 4th Wednesday at 6:00pm, On Zoom.  All are welcome.  Contact for the Zoom Link.

Hopefully this is enough to get us off and running. Don't hesitate to email or call if you have questions. 328-4271
