Additionally, the Shaker School Board is having a special meeting on April 23 at 6 p.m. in the cafeteria of the Canterbury Elementary School to review and discuss requests for quote for an outside agency to conduct a "culture" survey for the Shaker District.
The culture survey stems from statements made at annual town meeting by some residents and parents who said they were dissatisfied with the existing culture and administration of the district.
