Parents, Guardians and Risley Students, 
Please join me at the District Administration building's Arapaho room this coming Monday, March 11th, at 5:30 pm.  The External Management Organization (EMO) stakeholder's committee has recommended two finalists to help lead Risley International out of Turnaround status, and WE NEED YOUR VOICE!  We know how much you care about the success of students who attend Risley, and this meeting is your chance to hear the proposals from each organization, ask questions, and provide your feedback before a final decision is made.  Let's go Risley Bears! 

Hope to see you there!
