Work Session: Magnet Steering Committee Update
I. JCPS Magnet Steering Committee: Update and Progress

Audio: 3 8 2016 Work Session 1

The JCPS Magnet Steering Committee was reorganized to include community members in September 2015. The purpose of the steering committee is to review recommendations provided by the Magnet Schools of America (MSA) and provide input on how to implement these recommendations. The committee functions in an advisory capacity by offering insight to district leaders who oversee JCPS optional and magnet programs and schools in order to ensure a variety of equitable, high-quality magnets for students.

This presentation will provide an update to the Board on activities conducted by the reorganized steering committee thus far as well projections for work moving forward.
