Supt. Max McGee has lauded the efforts of the Minority Achievement and Talent Development Committee ahead of the reporting of its findings in early May.

“The subcommittee structure and the hundreds of hours of work they put into their task outside our meeting times was not only productive but inspirational,” McGee said.  “It is an amazing group.”

Even though the final report is yet to be published, the committee has already taken steps to start reducing the statistical achievement gap. According to McGee, following a board purchase of a new bus to transport Voluntary Transfer Program students.

“I am very appreciative of our board of education for approving the purchase of a bus to transport our VTP students directly from Ravenswood to Paly in the morning,” McGee said. “[They also will] provide after-school transportation in two different run times.”

McGee indicated that this measure  will allow VTP students to be a part of extracurricular programs and after-school programs.
