The meeting began with a report by School Bond Campaign Committee co-chairs Tecla Murphy and Jason Rylander. The 2012 school bond passed with over 80% of the vote, the highest percentage for any APS bond measure since the school division began issuing bonds in 1988. The Board thanked Murphy and Rylander for their work.
The board also honored 13 students who were recognized by the Virginia Music Educators Association for their achievements in jazz, choir and orchestra.
More information on the above items can be found on BoardDocs.
