Superintendent to give report on graduation plans


Copyright © 2021 Roswell Daily Record

Back to school, graduation and the latest financial audit are among the topics the Roswell Independent School District Board of Education will hear about at its regular meeting Tuesday night.

The meeting will be at 6 p.m. Tuesday in the Administrative and Educational Services Complex, 300 N. Kentucky.

Only board members and a small number of support staff will be in attendance due to the state’s health order. The meeting will be livestreamed on the district’s YouTube channel.

Superintendent Mike Gottlieb will give an update on RISD’s return to full-time classes as well as information on graduation in his report near the end of the meeting.

The board will also hear a report and vote on accepting the fiscal year 2019-2020 annual financial audit. A letter from the New Mexico State Auditor’s Office indicates the report is not yet public record and its website lists the audit as “in review.”
