The school board does not accept public comment during work sessions.

During the work session, the school board will discuss affordable housing in Decatur, the district’s reform policy, theory of action and continue the book study the board members are conducting.

The city of Decatur will lead a discussion about affordable housing, so the school board can talk about opportunities for the district to support the city’s affordable housing goals, Superintendent Maggie Fehrman said.

“The reform policy and theory of action item will be a discussion with the board on drafting their theory of action which the Board will use to guide and align district policies, priorities, and budget,” Fehrman added. “Then the board will discuss potential reform policies to draft as we update our policy manual. Reform policies are policies that the Board will write that are designed to change the district in fundamental ways to improve student achievement and district operations.”
