For parents and community members in my city, this is a follow-up to a previous post urging involvement in the school district's space utilization study - which will have impacts on where our children attend elementary school across the entire district.
For example, the study might result in the sixth grade being moved from the four elementary schools to the middle school - or the reorganization of the elementary schools into grade "cluster" schools (like K-2).
So, clearly, parents, teachers, and students ought to participate in every step of the the process, involving themselves in how the decisions ultimately become made.
As our local paper reported today, an initial meeting of the space utilization meeting will be held this coming Tuesday, January 25, at 7pm in the cafeteria at the Oneonta High School.
If you are interested in being involved in the study, you can call the district clerk Eileen Lishansky at 433-8323, ext. 300 - or just attend the meeting.
