 For Public Participation, Rob Shute inquired about particulars related to the extended absence of a particular School Board Member and the steps to be taken moving forward.  Superintendent Nelson Kise provided information regarding the process that will be followed in the fall. 

The Board engaged in an extensive discussion related to Non-Resident Tuition, with participating Board Members generally expressing that they are not in support of accepting out-of-district students.
