Director Steve Madsen spoke to the board members about the current scholarships offers and how we can improve the amount of scholarships given and the dollar amounts. He also talked about the possibility of developing a questionnaire for graduated students to obtain information about how Woodland School Districts service has worked for them in the years following graduation. Mr. Madsen asked the board members if he could work the Mr. Michael Green on these two items as he saw great value in both. The board members had no issues with Mr. Madsen moving forward.
