Seeking Your Feedback! 
As the second quarter of school quickly approaches, Dr. Adams is seeking feedback. For the first quarter we offered virtual learning, Edmentum, virtual learning in buildings at ISCs and in-person PK4 instruction at Stix. How did the first quarter learning plan work for you and family? What should the second quarter look like?
