Hello Community Members,

Recently, members of the school communities in our district were invited to answer some questions about two possible scenarios outlining specific district projects. Thank you for taking the time to share your thoughts! Now we're asking everyone, even if you weren't able to participate in the first part, to prioritize these ideas to help us understand the priorities of our parents, staff and community members.
