Board MeetingFlagler Schools has a unique tradition of having Student Representatives from each of our high schools participate in School Board meetings. At Tuesday night’s School Board meeting we welcomed both. The student board members are Flagler-Palm Coast High School senior Kaylee Briggs and Matanzas High School senior Karissa Jackson. I had the pleasure of sitting down with them a few weeks ago, speaking one-on-one at each campus. Both are great students who excel academically and participate in various activities outside of the classroom. They will be a valuable addition to the discussion at our School Board meetings as they will represent the voices of their peers.

If you were not able to attend or tune in to our School Board workshop Tuesday afternoon, I hope you take some time to watch it on our district website. We laid out the framework for our strategic plan, which outlines our goals for the upcoming years. We appreciate all stakeholders that contributed input to help create our strategic plan. I believe we have a solid architecture as we move forward with this process.

The Board also heard an important update to our rezoning proposal in which we’ve proposed putting a hold on rezoning our elementary schools, but will move forward with rezoning our middle and high schools for the 2022–2021 school year. We are in the process of updating the information to post under the rezoning section of our website. Look for the latest proposal, as well as information on public listening sessions, to be posted next week.

As we welcome fall, please make sure to visit school websites for important information regarding events taking place across the district, including Homecoming events, College and Career fairs, academic game nights, and sporting events.

Working Together,


Cathy Mittelstadt
