During a lunchtime meeting Tuesday, Superintendent Bruce Borchers will review areas of focus for Oak Ridge Schools and share data on the past year’s achievements of students and staff members.
Borchers will also highlight future plans and programs, including the plan to transform Oak Ridge Schools into the premier preK-12 STEM (science, technology, engineering, and mathematics) school district in the nation. There will also be an update on the status of the recommendations for the Preschool and the School Administration Building, a press release said.
Borchers will be the guest speaker at Lunch with the League on Tuesday, January 20. The program starts at noon in the Social Hall of the Oak Ridge Unitarian Universalist Church at 809 Oak Ridge Turnpike.
“Oak Ridge has a seven-decade history of educational excellence and outstanding community support of the city school system,” the press release said. “The past decade has seen changes in city demographics and educational requirements as well as financial challenges. Dr. Borchers is now in his second year as superintendent of schools and is committed to continuing this tradition of excellence.”
