We want everyone who wishes to provide input into this critically important process to have the opportunity, so please let us know you plan to attend.
Context for new participants: In February 2020, we were encouraged by the enthusiasm of the Northmont stakeholder group who participated in our first Facilities Forum. The participants offered diverse, insightful perspectives and important input to consider about future plans for our school facilities for grades 2-8. Two more forums were planned for spring of 2020 to build on that input; however, due to the pandemic, we “hit the pause button” on the process.
Earlier this year we re-booted our facilities planning with the community. Four virtual REBOOT sessions were held in February and March 2021, and we fielded an online survey. Participation numbers were not as robust as we had hoped, but we are thankful for the interest and input we did receive. On April 12th, our fifth session re-examined our conclusions from the previous sessions and built on them further... please see the “Facilities Forum Summary 2” document under the Facilities tab of the website for a summary report. In our final forum of 2021, on May 18th, we will bring together all the work we’ve done so far in a presentation of a completed draft of the strategic facilities plan for your review and input, ask for your suggestions and help in communicating it with our broader community, and discuss timeline and next steps in the process.
