Several weeks ago I put out a call for volunteers to assist with Planning Committees for the programming and design of our new elementary and intermediate schools, as well as for the renovations at Athens Middle School. I had a great response. In fact, despite adding more parents to the PK-3 and 4-6 committees than originally planned, I still had 14 additional parents who I've asked to help on an as-needed basis throughout the process this year. In all, nearly one hundred different people will provide direct input as members of the committees!
The first meeting of the PK-3 and 4-6 committees is on Wednesday of this week. That meeting is not open to the public, however several members of each group will be at our Board Meeting on February 21 at Athens High School to share their progress and seek additional input from members of the community. Smaller group input sessions will be planned and announced next week.
Thank you to everyone who volunteered to help with this important work! Please see the ACSD Construction Planning/Design Committees file for complete lists of the PK-3, Grades 4-6, and MS Planning Committees below.
