HUTCHINSON, Kan. — The USD 308 School Board approved a contract Monday that will give the district access to quick-turnaround research as well as research on special projects.
The contract with EAB allows the district to get a quick turnaround on any research the company has done for other districts and provides in-depth research on topics specific to USD 308.
For example, if the district wanted to know about research-based programs that other districts have used to lower chronic student absenteeism and the company had already studied the issue, EAB would get that information to the district quickly. If the district wanted assistance with setting the best start times for schools, EAB would be able to help, but the project might take longer.
EAB is used by several area districts.
The next regular meeting of the board will be Dec. 9 at 6 p.m. at the Administration Center. It will be the only regular December meeting of the board.
