Federal Programs Planning Meeting
As a public charter school, Midlands Middle College (MMC) receives funding from various public sources. Each year, the school holds a planning meeting to identify and prioritize needs, develop activities and strategies to meet those needs, and determine the appropriate sources to fund each activity. All stakeholders – students, parents, teachers, staff, board and community members – are invited to participate in this planning process. This year’s meeting will be held Friday, May 7. Please see this letter for details if you are interested in participating.
