Community Meeting Feedback
SoWashCo Schools third community meeting will be held from 6:30-8 p.m., Tuesday, May 23 at East Ridge High School (ERHS).
District leadership shared information about the recent community survey, new demographic study and the input gathered from staff, families and community members. The focus has been on what individuals would prioritize to be in the new 5-year facility plan.
During the school board business meeting on Thursday, April 20, South Washington County Schools (SoWashCo Schools) presented an update about its long-range facility planning process.
South Washington County Schools gathered feedback through eight community listening sessions and multiple staff and school sessions following the unsuccessful bond election in August 2022.
These sessions were opportunities to listen and document feedback. The information gathered will help guide the development of a community phone survey, which in-turn, will guide the next facility planning process.
External facilitators guided the discussions around four main questions:
- What did you like most about the original long-range facility plan?
- What were your greatest concerns about the original long-range facility plan?
- What suggestions do you have to address student growth and facility needs?
- What do you believe are the most important issues facing SoWashCo Schools?
