From the Superintendent RE: January 12th Meeting

Clarification

There appears to be much confusion regarding action that will taken at the January 12th Board Meeting.

The board will not be taking any action to close any schools at this meeting. The board will give consideration to the 10 plausible scenarios outlined in the Futures Task Force report and take action to eliminate scenarios that are of no interest to pursue further. The purpose is to narrow the discussion to 2-3 plausible scenarios and analyze more data before a final decision is made. (potential cost savings, educational offerings, transportation, and building needs)

We are still waiting on our facilities reports from the AMES Associates, as they are waiting estimates on recommended maintenance.

The following attachments outline procedures for any school closure in a RSU. I hope that people will see that the board can take an initial vote; however, the communities will have a vote.
