After participating in the TASB webinar, Superintendent McKinney contacted Joy Baskin, TASB Director of Legal Services at TASB regarding some questions about the process. With the information gathered the past two weeks, it is necessary to revise the timeline to ensure that we follow the process but also take time to ensure that our Innovation Plan truly meets the goals of our district.
