The committee’s future plans include working closely with the school department to implement a volunteer program and another public meeting in the fall, We certainly want the communication to be ongoing and the conversation to continue. So, although we will not be doing a weekly column this next school year, we will be providing information and updates on a regular basis. Lastly, we believe that every child in Salem can and will achieve at high levels. We invite all citizens of Salem to work with us to make this happen.
