Community focus group report now available

February 19, 2014

On Saturday, Feb. 8, the district’s consultant for the elementary building study, led a group of 36 volunteers in a community focus group.

“We’re thankful for the work of the focus group and we look forward to further discussion with the wider community at our community budget forum next week,” said Superintendent of Schools Michael Patton.

After discussion and conversation, the group members ranked all of the eight options presented by Dr. Seversky in his original report. The following are the top four:

  • Scenario G (Serve K-5 in the existing elementary schools. All Universal Pre-K supplied by the current community vendor is served at Moreau.)
  • Scenario E (Host Universal Pre-K supplied by the current community vendor in the existing K-5 elementary schools. Locate the District Offices at the Middle School.)
  • Scenario B (Serve K-5 in three existing elementary schools. Use Moreau Elementary for the District Offices and Universal Pre-K supplied by the current community vendor.)
  • Scenario A (Continue the current pattern of delivery.)

A community budget forum will be held on Wednesday, Feb. 26 at 6:30 p.m. in the Middle School LGI. The school board will ultimately make a final decision on the district’s configuration and what changes should be made, which is why input from the community early on in this process is vital.
