SPAN Board Needs Your Help!

The SPAN Board currently has a vacancy for the Vice President position; the person who had filled that role saw her youngest child graduate last year.   The president and treasurer/webmaster will be leaving their respective positions at the end of this school year, as their youngest children will almost be out of high school.  In order for SPAN to continue, volunteers are needed for these roles.  SPAN is a vital advocate for gifted services in the district.  If you want the needs of your gifted child to continue to be met in the district, please consider becoming part of the SPAN Board. Current and past Board members are more than willing to help guide new Board members.
