Next year’s calendar and the new secondary principal search are key agenda items for the Mancos school board tonight.
The 2019-20 calendar talk comes during the work session before the regular meeting, while discussions on the principal search will happen later in the evening at the meeting itself.
The need for a new high school principal comes in the wake of the recent resignation of Adam Priestley, who left the post in November.
The regular meeting is scheduled to begin at 7 p.m. in Room No. 507 of the West Wing at the district campus just south of Grand Avenue and between Beech and Walnut streets, preceded by a work session at 6 p.m. in the same location.
