Corbett to vote on charter district on Nov. 20, MHCC hosts Native American storyteller and more

PMG FILE PHOTO - Corbett School Distrist Board is expected to approve turning the district into a charter district.

Corbett board likely to vote on charter

The Corbett School District board is expected to vote at its next meeting on whether the district should become a charter district so that it can continue to accept students from outside the district. The meeting is scheduled for 7 p.m. Wednesday, Nov. 20, in the multipurpose room at 35800 E. Historic Columbia River Highway.

The district also said that "A preliminary draft plan will be shared with the board that features four specific stepping stones that pave a path toward passing bonds to address the infrastructure needs of the District."

The district said "the plan includes a possible path to responsibly reducing district size while simultaneously reducing class size, reducing the number of required AP courses while maintaining rigor and opportunity, adding additional career technical education courses (CTE), and continuing with community engagement specifically through the visions and values and strategic planning process."
