**        Ann Pursel addressed the Board regarding the ways in which we interact with Wyoming Central to provide them with the information to help the students and their families decide which high school they will attend once they enter 9th grade.  She indicated that historically our District receives about half of the 9th grade students.  Since their class sizes have decreased, in recent years it appears fewer are selecting PCS.  She provided the Board with copies of the 2019-2020 class catalog that all students entering 8th grade receive to help them select the courses they want to take and shared some ideas we can provide additional information to the families in Wyoming to help them learn more about our District.  She answered questions and the Board thanked her for the information.
