Project 2021: Community Feedback Next, Community Forum Set for March 22
SKANEATELES, NY (March 16, 2017) – After successful shareholder meetings with faculty, staff, and students in relation to Skaneateles Central School’s proposed Project 2021, community feedback will be the next step in the shareholder meeting process.
Guided by the Board of Education and the strategic planning community advisory committee, the district will seek broad community input into Project 2021.
Superintendent Ken Slentz stated that, “The key reasons that we started planning for this project as early as we did was to allow us time to maximize input and generate communications on what our plans are for the district’s facilities relative to the learning needs of our students and the stewardship obligations that we hold on behalf of the community.”
Feedback will be categorized into four categories.
‘Have to Do’ will consist of items that are health and safety issues, or items in district buildings that are no longer repairable.
‘Should Do’ are items that need attention where delay could be costly.
‘Nice to Do’ consists of items that would provide benefits to teaching and learning, but are not mandatory.
‘Considered but Rejected’ will be items that are not a priority or are too costly at this time.
Community members will have an opportunity on Wednesday, March 22 to meet with Superintendent Slentz as a part of the second State of the District Community Forum at the Waterman School Auditorium beginning at 7 p.m.
While the focal point of the forum will be the 2017-‘18 budget, Slentz will provide an update on the status of Project 2021, with an open floor for questions from those in attendance.
Knowing that the best results come in collaboration with the districts valued shareholders, please continue to watch for mailers and news articles in reference to Project 2021 as well as the Skaneateles Central Schools website and Facebook page for more information.
