Community Meeting for Feedback on Elementary School Plans
The Englewood Schools Board of Education will be hearing a variety of options to move forward with replacing or renovating all four of the district’s elementary school buildings as well as its preschool facility at a public meeting on June 28, 2016, at 6:00 p.m. at 700 W. Mansfield Ave.
At the meeting, CBRE, a project management firm, and HCM architects will present options based on extensive research and priorities outlined by the district’s Facilities Long-Range Planning Committee—a community group that made formal recommendations to the Board of Education in May.
Among the recommendations were that the Board seek a bond issue in November to renovate or replace the District’s aging buildings, and that experts should be brought in to assess the cost and best possible scenarios for the district based on identified priorities.
The plans that will be presented at the meeting are the result of the expert partner’s research and best thinking regarding a plan that will address the District’s outlined needs and priorities. The community will be invited to give feedback about the plans.
The PowerSchool rollover is scheduled for Wednesday, July 6. PowerSchool/Teacher will be unavailable that day. Once the rollover is complete, students will be in their 16/17 grade/school.

Professional learning opportunities will be monitored and evaluated by leadership teams. All staff will have the opportunity to provide feedback after each professional learning session. This feedback will be used to monitor continuous improvement. This is a working document, and may change as needs of staff/system change.
