2nd Community Forum Announced

Ideas and questions about a new TK–8th-grade school filled the walls at the District's first Community Input Forum. A second forum is planned for June 12.

The community is invited to the District's second Community Input Forum to provide feedback on short- and long-term decisions relating to creating our new school on the Campbell Middle School site. The meeting will be held Monday, June 12, from 6 p.m. until 8 p.m., at Campbell Middle School.

The District is seeking ideas and suggestions about elements of the Transformation Team's recommendation, which includes which grades will be enrolled in the school's first few years, the theme for the school, site plans, and more. 

Students, families, employees, neighbors—all those who have an interest in development of the school—are welcome.
