The Silver Consolidated Schools Regular Board Meeting was held Tuesday, August 15, 2017 in the Silver Schools Administration Building. All members of the Board of Education as well as Superintendent Audie Brown were in attendance.

Among the presentations, MATCH New Mexico brought the board information about their program that could provide mentorship for third graders in an effort to improve literacy, partnering them up with trained students who themselves would be either of college-age or at the high school level. Mentees would be randomly paired with the older students, working four hours a week outside of classroom time to improve their reading skills. Successful programs in other schools have shown how invaluable this mentor program can be on the academic and emotional lives of youngsters.
