March 22, 2017: Community Forum Presentation 

Salt River Schools reaches out to stakeholders, including students, parents/guardians and the Community, in multiple ways. Recently, our Superintendent, Dr. Louis Laffitte, Jr., began sharing critical Division information and his vision with stakeholders at what will become quarterly "Community Forums." These forums are a chance to meet with Dr. Laffitte, learn about the challenges and opportunities of Salt River Schools and share ideas, suggestions and concerns with Division leadership. A full meal (and snacks!) will be served at the next Community Forum March 30. The event will be held at the Lehi Community Building from 6:30-7:30 p.m.  Can't make it?
