The Johnson County School District 1 Board of Trustees held their meeting Monday night at the Kaycee School, and adopted goals for themselves and the District.
Discussions included whether the goals were too broad, whether more goals should be added and if they should be more specific in their wording.
The goals were discussed at the last meeting September 12th and were revised and presented to the board again Monday.
Superintendent Dr. Rod Kessler suggested the board adopt the revised goals and readdress more specific items at a later date, when there could be more in-depth discussions on them.
The goals needed to be adopted before November 1st to keep within the time frame for accreditation, and the board adopted them Monday night.
