School workshop seeks resident input


To the Residents of Durham and Middlefield:

The second of three RSD 13 School Utilization Study Community Workshops is scheduled for Wednesday, Dec. 11, 7:00 p.m. to 8:30 p.m. at the Strong School Gymnasium. The workshop will again be conducted by Region 13 Utilization Study consultant, Drummey, Rosane Anderson, Inc (DRA).

The purpose of the first Community Workshop was to gather input and feedback from workshop focus groups on the needs in the school district. The workshop generated a tremendous level of community participation and the discussions were informative, thoughtful and productive.

The purpose of Community Workshop #2 is to explore a wide variety of options drafted in response to the research done and the discussions held at the first workshop session. Participants will have an opportunity to discuss these options and to offer their ideas during the workshop.

Like the first session, Community Workshop #2 will be organized around focus group breakout sessions, each devoted to discussing district facilities, educational programs, RSD 13 trends and student issues and needs.

While these series of workshops build on each other, your participation is vitally important and we encourage you to attend workshop #2 whether or not you were able to participate in the first workshop. You may also provide your comments to us at survey@rsd13.org or calling the Board of Education at (860) 349-7200.

A third workshop session to be held in January, 2014 will focus on the feasibility of options developed at the second workshop and will present these considerations to the Board of Education and the community.

We look forward to your continued support and participation in this important process.

Bob Fulton, Chairman

School Utilization Study Committee
