C.                  Lorane Elementary Charter School Exploration


Andy Stahl held discussion with the board regarding the investigation of Lorane Elementary possibly becoming a charter school.  Andy Stahl would head up the committee to investigate the feasibility and would need the board’s approval to apply for a grant to review the possibilities of this occurring.  He would work with a committee but would not work without support from the patrons to review this.
