Our meeting dates will be:  September 20October 18November 15January 17, (tentative) January 21 State-of-the-District, February 14March 21April 18, May 16

We discussed the exploration by the district of the International Baccalaureate (IB) program and wondered how it compared to the AP programs.  No one from the Board of Education was in attendance, so we are sharing this article and hope it provides some answers. http://www.usnews.com/education/blogs/high-school-notes/2014/09/02/discover-the-difference-between-ap-and-ib-classes

We also discussed what is perceived as a difficulty by some with the new Chrome Books.  Some reported that their children have said that are very slow and difficult to use.

Another topic was concern by some parents that some school clubs and organizations use Facebook as their primary method of communication, and some parents do not want their children to have a Facebook account.
