  1. Alexandra,

    Thank you for this. SCANEX has enjoyed our relationship with the Germany Multi-District and our one-to-one exchange between San Luis Obispo High School (D5240) and D1830. SCANEX is preparing as if exchanges will take place, but are waiting for RI’s guidance.

    Yours in Rotary,

    Warren Bobrow
    Chair, SCANEX
