Meetings are held the first Tuesday of each month, unless otherwise requested by IEC members. School messenger and Facebook alerts are sent out to notify community of meetings each month. If you would like to attend, please note that there is a public comment section in the first few minutes of each meeting, during which parents and community can voice their concerns to IEC members. After doing so, you can request to be placed on the agenda for the following month. Please contact Raphaelita Phillips for more information.
