School district looking for input

The Marysville School District has some big decisions to make in the near future. The district’s Citizen’s Planning Commission has been hard at work pouring over several possible options in regard to district facilities that are aging, being reviewed for possible relocation, closure or remodel.

By May 15, the committee is charged with making some decisions that will go to the school board, such as: “Should the M-P site house only the 9-12 grade students or should the site be divided for a middle school or elementary school as originally intended?”, how big should the 2010 bond issue be?” and “What should the district’s facility priorities be?” to name a few.

In addition to the work of the Citizen’s Planning Commission, the district is offering several opportunities to hear input from the public.

Town hall meetings are slated for Jan. 15 and Feb. 3, both begin at 6:30 p.m. in the board room. Staff meetings (the public is welcome) are set for Jan. 22, at 3:30 p.m. in the board room and Jan. 29, at 3:30 p.m., at the Grove Elementary Library. Citizen’s Planning meetings (the public is welcome) are set for Jan. 22 and Feb. 12, beginning at 6:30 p.m. in the board room. There is also a special school board work study session set for Jan. 26, 6:30 p.m., in the board room.

An information fair is scheduled for Jan. 24, 9-11 a.m., at Totem Middle School and SLC Information Fairs at slated for Feb. 10, 18, and 26, 5-8 p.m. at the M-P campus.

A comprehensive report titled “Facilities Overview - January 2009” is available at the district Web site at or at the district office at 4220 80th Street NE.
