Key Votes

All of the information in these documents comes from public meetings and public documents -- but the time commitment to follow the critical decisions being made by the board is significant.  DKF’s goal is to be a resource for interested citizens, breaking down what happens in each meeting and throughout the year. 

We would like to acknowledge the strong drive of the entire board toward successful schools and students.  Even with marked differences of opinions between Trustees regarding how to get there and the challenge to work out those differences in an open, public forum, we do not doubt their firm commitment. We are appreciative of every Trustee’s time and effort and progress on behalf of kids.
