The new officers are the same for all the committees and are:

We will be doing the elections for Student Reps in the Fall. I would like to invte you all to attend our parent committee meetings as we do cover quite a bit of information and discuss the budgets. If you have questions you need to ask. We encourage participation!
If you have a Native American student, please remember to turn in the 506C form and a JOM form if your child is either enrolled, eligible for enrollment or is a combined 25% Native American from various bands/tribes. This is important information to have on file and should follow your student from school to school as well as assisting your child when it comes time for college and scholarships.
If you have paperwork or questions regarding Title VI, AMI, or JOM please call or come in and see me. I can meet with you and assist in the completion of it while you are here.
You can find a link to the school board approved Policy 331- Indian Policy and Procedures here. This was approved at the October 16, 2017 School Board Meeting. If you have questions regarding this please feel free to contact us at the Bagley School District.
