• BOE Takes ‘VISION 2020’ on the Road


    The Adams County School District 50 Board of Education wants to know what you think of their plan for the future; to do that, they are taking to the road.

    On Saturday, February 27 the Board and District 50 staff will be hosting an informational meeting at the Westminster High School Library from 10:00 to 11:30 a.m. with a second meeting scheduled for Monday, March 14 from 6:00 to 7:30 p.m. at Sunset Ridge Elementary.

    Board members will be discussing the VISION 2020 Strategic Plan which you can read here.

    The plan was approved by the Board of Education last year, and focuses on five key priorities the District plans to prioritize in the coming years. A paragraph describing each of the components of the vision is below.

    Board of Education President Dino Valente, says he is excited about the opportunity to hear directly from the District 50 community.

    “With the launching of Vision 2020, the Board felt strongly about reaching out to our stakeholders to communicate the direction the District is headed over the next several years,” he said. “Credit to board member Ryan McCoy for the outreach idea and fellow board member Ken Ciancio for creating the ‘Board on the Road’ concept.”  

    Max Math, who was elected to the Board in November, says he’s excited about the opportunity to share the board’s perspective with the community. “This reminds us of a famous quote from John D. Rockefeller,” Math said. "Next to doing the right thing.  The most important thing is to let people know you are doing the right thing."
