MISD is excited to present the MISD State of the District address! With the many areas of interest and COVID challenges, MISD would like to hear from Chamber membership on what is top of mind and what they want to know. Here is a link to a Thought Exchange, where members can share their thoughts. MISD will use this information to help us formalize our presentation. The Thought Exchange will close Sunday at 11:59 p.m. Thank you in advance for your participation!
