Superintendent's Schools Task Force
Dear OVSD Parents/Guardians,
As I previously shared, I am creating a Superintendent’s Schools Task Force. The Task Force will work together to develop a range of future options for the Board of Trustees to consider as it determines how to manage the District’s ongoing declining enrollment and low school(s) enrollment.
The Task Force is composed of 40 members, representing schools; community members; teachers; classified employees; Principals; Special Education parents; Directors of Teaching & Learning, Special Education, and Facilities; and Executive Cabinet. All school site representatives were selected from the Superintendent’s Schools Task Force applications. Task Force members will be asked to attend 1-2 meetings per month throughout the remainder of this school year and next school year, with the expectation to actively participate with an open mind, be able to make decisions based on the best interest of the whole District, agree to speak with a unified voice, share information with their school and collect feedback, and attend/present at Board Meetings as needed.
Recordings of the meetings will be available at www.youtube.com/@ovsdvideo/streams
Dr. Michael Conroy
