Changes to process for potential school consolidations, program changes and boundary adjustments

The Facilities Planning Steering Committee presented its second draft of scenarios for potential school closures, program changes, and boundary adjustments to the PSD Board of Education at their May 14 meeting. More information about the scenarios can be found on the PSD Long-Range Planning web section.  

During discussion of the committee’s draft scenarios, board members decided to make the following changes to the long-range planning process: 

  • The Facilities Planning Steering Committee will not return to the Board for a presentation on May 28. Instead, they will serve as consultants to staff and the school board as needed.  
  • The questionnaire on proposed scenarios will remain open to the public May 10-19. A summary of the feedback collected in this questionnaire will be provided to staff and the Board of Education for their consideration. 
  • PSD staff will present board-requested information at the May 28 Board of Education meeting.  
  • The Board still plans to host multiple listening sessions on June 4 and is still scheduled at this time to vote on potential scenarios on June 11. 

We thank every member of the steering committee for their diligent and tireless work.
