I.M.S. & I.H.S. Parents,

A committee is considering the implementation of an agriculture program at Independence High School.  We would like the parents of middle school and high school students to participate in a survey to gauge interest in this program.  Please answer this survey so our committee can accumulate results to be considered as a factor in our decision.  If you have any questions about the program you may call Mr. Beisel at the high school (620-332-1815) or Mr. Schmidt at the board office (620-331-1800).  Thank you for your participation.
