Boundary Review Updates: Community Input Sessions Begin
July 12th, 2019
Community Input Sessions
The first of four community input sessions took place this week at Oakland Mills High School where approximately 250 community members attended. The session allowed community members to review the options outlined in the 2019 Feasibility Study and collaborate on solutions with other members of the community in small group sessions.
Each group included a notetaker who captured the conversations and feedback provided by the group. This feedback will be shared with the Superintendent and help inform his recommendation to the Board of Education on August 20. Input submitted online or through paper surveys, and by the Attendance Area Committee will also help to inform the Superintendent.
Additional community input sessions will be held on:
- Saturday, July 13, 9–11 a.m. at Long Reach High School
- Available to any family that is unable to attend their regional meeting.
- Tuesday, July 16, 7–9 p.m. at Atholton High School
- Families currently zoned for Atholton HS, Hammond HS, Long Reach HS, Wilde Lake HS
- Thursday, July 18, 7–9 p.m. at River Hill High School
- Families currently zoned for Glenelg HS, Marriotts Ridge HS, Reservoir HS, River Hill HS
Families are encouraged to attend only one session as the content of each session will be similar, and we want to ensure that there is equity of voice at each. Please RSVP online. Members of the community who are unable to attend the event planned for your region, may attend any of the other sessions. Those who cannot attend may view the presentation being given online.
Attendance Area Committee Completes Their Work
The Attendance Area Committee (AAC) completed their work on Tuesday, July 9 to review the options presented in the 2019 Feasibility Study for the Superintendent’s consideration.
The AAC did not develop any additional plans but recommended the priorities that the Superintendent should consider when developing his recommendation to the Board.
Meeting minutes and presentations can be found online.
