THOUGHT EXCHANGE – COMMUNITY & STAFF FACILITY ENGAGEMENT PROCESS

thought exchange

The second Thoughtexchange process will begin on October 9th, 2017. This will provide community and staff an opportunity to comment on the Long-Term Facility Plan recommended to the Board on September 5, 2017 by the Facility Improvement Team (FIT). Feedback will be used to provide guidance to the Board on finalizing and approving the Long-Term Facility Plan. Approval of the Long-Term Facility Plan could result in a bond measure to the voters in early 2018.
