An informational meeting for all staff and community members interested in understanding more about Expeditionary Learning will be held from 4:30-6pm on Tuesday, April 23, at the Glenwood Springs Elementary School. Jon Mann, the regional director from the Expeditionary Learning organization, will be presenting the program to acquaint people with the EL educational model and answer questions. For more information on EL visit www.elschools.org. “The goal of this session is to provide perspective to parents who live outside the GSES attendance area and to teachers who may want to transfer to GSES if the school is converted to EL,” said Matt Hamilton, Roaring Fork School District school board president.
