EASTOVER PARENT ADVISORY COMMITTEE
On April 2, 2014, Superintendent Rob Glass attended a special PTO meeting to listen to our school community.  During this meeting, a committee was formed to follow up on questions, concerns, and suggestions.  Several meetings have been held with Central Office, Eastover staff, and Eastover parents.  To continue this important work, and diversify our group, we invited more parents to join us during the October 7th Superintendent Dialogue.

Our purpose is to have ongoing dialogue and implement solutions to best meet the needs of our staff, students, and families.

We would like to thank our school community for providing input and staying encouraged as we communicate updates and give feedback.  For more information, please review our meeting minutes and/or contact a member of our Advisory Committee.
