Pursuant to School Board Policy 2:150, the Board of Education may establish committees to assist with the Board's governance function and, in some situations, to comply with state law requirements. Each committee reports directly to the Board of Education. Committee members may include both Board Members and non-Board Members depending on the committee's purpose. Committee appointments are made at the organization meeting of the Board that is held following the consolidated election in April of odd numbered years. Committee meetings are typically held once per month. The purpose of the Finance Committee is to review the district budget, financial projections and other important financial documents and reports.

    I love teaching art to my wonderful Rose students. Not only do I get to inspire them, but they inspire me as well. They make me want to work harder, be a better person, and achieve more every year.

    I love teaching kindergarten because the children come to school with a "blank slate" and I get to be a part of their first school experience. Rose School is a wonderful place to learn and grow! Once a stingray, always a stingray!Jen WessbergTeacher
