3/13/2015, 4/1/2015, 4/2/2015, 4/6/2015, and additional days of 6/1/2015, and 6/2/2015 have been added to the academic calendar to make up for weather related cancellations. Any additional cancellations, if they occur, will be added to the end of the year in June.
As part of the challenging process of creating a budget for the 2015-2016, Board President Eric Funk and the rest of our School Board members have agreed to host a series of "Committee of the Whole" meetings. The dates of these four meetings will be given below.
The goal of these meetings is to provide as much transparency and to seek as much stakeholder input as possible. The meetings will be open to all stakeholders: faculty, staff, parents, students, taxpayers, etc. Anyone who has a sincere interest in and cares about the future of Clarion Area School District. This budget will affect the entire Clarion Area community. Please plan to attend some or all of these meetings. Your input is important and valued!
All of these meeting are scheduled for 7:30 PM in the Clarion Area High School. The dates are:
