pfsThe PFS committee reconvened on 2/9 to review feedback and establish the next steps in both short-term and long-term facilities planning within our district. The PFS asked that sub-committees reconvene to determine if there are additional options and do further research regarding school sizes and academic needs to ensure a Facilities Master Plan proposal is developed that reflects community needs while being a good steward of taxpayer dollars. The committee is working on a modified facilities master plan to present to the community at a tentatively scheduled meeting, pending Board of Education direction, on 4/24. The PFS committee is focused on student safety as well as quality educational space and environment for our students.
