To develop a new strategic plan for Meridian School District that provides a road map for 2023-2028 promoting inclusive instructional practices, facilities, belonging, and prepare us for the growth of our district so each and every student has opportunities to excel.

Volunteers serving on committees are on campus for a period of time and work in close physical proximity to others while on site. Therefore, they would be considered “on-site volunteers” and subject to the vaccination requirement. Before parents/guardians or community members could engage in work on the committee, the district would be required to verify the members’ vaccination status or entitlement to an accommodation or exemption.
