The CAM Community School District’s Board of Directors have scheduled a public meeting to be held on Monday, December 19th at 6:30 pm at the CAM High School.  The Board is exploring the opportunity to partner with Connections Education to form a free K-12 online learning center within the district.  The center would operate independently of the CAM District’s educational program and would serve students statewide in the open enrollment process.  

The meeting will provide information in reference to the benefits a partnership would create for our current CAM students and the CAM District.  Superintendent Steve Pelzer says this is a new concept in the state of Iowa, but similar programs are currently available in over 20 states.  

Pelzer and the School Board invites the public to take this opportunity to learn more about the program, and share your thoughts with the Board.  A decision by the Board on whether or not to pursue this program will be made very soon to meet the March 1st deadline for open enrollment applications.
