October 2, 2019 Board Meeting
There was great energy and excitement the morning Dr. Gallon visited Andover Middle School to celebrate the Verizon Innovation Schools Program Launch held on October 3, 2019.
All students received a mobile technology device as well as 2 years service through Verizon.
This will enable the students to stay connected to educational technology beyond school and continue to address the access, resource, and opportunity gaps as they relate to technology for many students.
Lake Stevens Middle School in District 1 was also a recipient.
Dr. Gallon gave congratulations to Andover Middle and saluted Principal Kenneth Williams for his leadership and transformation of the school.

Students were honored for a multitude of reasons including academic achievement, attendance, and positive attitudes in the pursuit of learning. Each student received a certificate of achievement, a medallion, a family pass to the Miami Museum, and a special treat.
