    Our advisory board banquet will be Thursday, September 23rd, at 6:00 PM.  Our format will be adjusted slightly due to COVID protocols.  Instead of having all participants gather in our commons we are setting up a schedule to serve all board members throughout the evening and having them all return to their individual meetings.  Mike Quaranta and I will go to each meeting and give C9 updates.

    Starting September 15th Central Nine administration and teachers association will begin official bargaining.  Our initial hearing was from 3:00-3:30 September 9th.  We may need to schedule a special board meeting before the ratification meeting within the next two months since bargaining has to be completed by November 15th.

    September 22nd I will host the first of three superintendent meetings this school year.  Culinary will provide a lunch and PLTW biomedical will be a program spotlight.

    Trey Hollingsworth, US House of Representatives is scheduled Wednesday, September 8th, at 12:30 to visit and tour the facility.

    The IACTE state conference is September 24th at the Mariott East.  Steve Owen and Tiffany Bickerstaff are both presenting at this year's conference.  We have a handful of staff attending.

    Remember: Our October board meeting is one week earlier due to fall break.  The new date is October 7th.
