Requests for Flexibility: APPROVED
Mountain Park’s School Governance Council proposed to renew our Requests for Flexibility or RFFs for 2017-2018. The RFF proposals were public documents describing a school’s requested waiver(s) from district and/or state law or policy in order to implement a strategic effort within the school. Please see the linked slide to view the Strategic Plan Initiatives and how the proposed RFFs support that work. All of our Requests for Flexibility for 2017-2018 were approved. Any questions can be emailed directly to the School Governance Council’s Parliamentarian and Secretary, Pamela Haight at email@example.com.
