Needham School Committee, 2/27/24

The Needham School Committee had a few things to figure out as they settled in to their February 27th session. They heard a review of the Middle School Math Program, and got the report card for the performance of the Needham High School. They also heard what changes the high school would like to implement in the upcoming year. If you click on the agenda items, the video will cue in a new window.
