They’re going to talk about things like facilities, and textbooks, and literacy, and also other pieces of legislation that have come about as a result this session of the General Assembly, like safety training in high school athletics,” she says.

Gross says the board will also continue the process of selecting a new education commissioner.  The panel hasn’t finalized a contract with a search firm yet, but hopes to set a timeline this week.
