The Board of Education has requested the establishment of a Middle School Task Force to identify the current reality of middle schools in San Lorenzo, listen to the needs of students, families, teachers, and staff, and to make recommendations to the Board of Education.  The Task Force is an asset-based community collaboration to identify areas of excellence to celebrate and opportunities for continued improvement to enhance our middle school programs and prepare students for college, career and civic engagement.
