High School Task Force

The Lincoln Public Schools Board of Education adopted a goal this year to establish a High School Task Force to investigate community options and priorities for serving high school students and to make recommendations by May 1, 2018.

The High School Task Force meets monthly. Prior to each meeting, there is an optional tour of one of our excellent high schools to help task force members gain a thorough understanding of what is currently offered for students. Members are encouraged to take advantage of the optional tour prior to the start of each meeting.
