The four goals for the Washington School Board this year were approved at last night’s school board meeting. The goals include increasing parental involvement, particularly on committees; communication, engaging the public about the school district’s current and future facility needs; and education climate, survey students to determine the level of student engagement and well-being while also assessing data on student safety. The fourth goal regards student achievement at each building.
