In response to this growth the Everett Public Schools are holding focus groups to consider their options whether that be adding classrooms to existing schools or building another new high school. They’re looking for people to join the discussion. Here are the questions they face and how you can join a focus group to give your opinion…
So, what would you do if … ?
… you were in charge of proposing whether we build new schools or additions to existing schools, and
… you were in charge of deciding where in the southern and central parts of the district to build those classrooms, and
… you wanted the community to understand why more high school space is needed, what it will cost and all the reasons for choosing a particular solution?
You might ask people for their ideas.
Join us …
… for one of two community focus group meetings, explore the possible solutions to this high school growth and share your perspectives on this important topic in an interactive activity designed to help determine the long-term future of our high schools.
- Wednesday, Sept. 11, from 6 to 8 p.m. in the Evergreen Middle School cafeteria, and
Thursday, Sept. 12, from 6 to 8 p.m. at Henry M. Jackson High School annex, next to the cafeteria
Each session will include small group discussions working through possible scenarios, asking questions and making suggestions for planning and developing a bond proposal for February 2014.
