The Board of Education annually establishes district-wide goals for school improvement. In addition to the district's goals, school improvement teams at each building develop and implement goals specific to the needs of their students. Renewed efforts to coordinate the curriculum and programs are underway. By determining the desired "Columbia graduate profile" or the essential skills needed to graduate, we are working to develop our instructional opportunities to aid students in achieving those necessary skills.

Board Meetings
Meetings are held on the second Monday of each month. Meetings will be held in the Columbia Community Room at 7:00 p.m. Some of the meetings may be held in other buildings in the district. Notice will be published when this takes place.

Some of the meetings may be held in other buildings in the district. Notice will be published when this takes place. The Administration Offices are located at 11775 Hewitt Road, Brooklyn, MI 49230. The phone number is (517) 592-6641.
