    Dr. Lewis made the determination to not have this advisory group meet before September 2018 as he wanted to hear from the community regarding concerns and priorities and then review the purpose/mission of this group during his first 100 days as Superintendent. 

    If you have not had the opportunity to review Dr. Lewis’ entry plan, here is the link to do so- www.usd497.org/EntryPlan.
