Town Hall meetings

Instead of updating my previous post, I’m just going to make a new one. From Stephanie Stuart of Unit 4:

The Unit 4 Board of Education will host two Town Hall Meetings on June 23 and July 14 to gather community input on the school facility plans under consideration.

This school year, the Board of Education embarked on a collaborative planning process and formed a Special Board Committee comprised on community representatives to provide recommendations on a long term facilities plan. On Monday, June 13, the Tier II Committee is expected to present those recommendations to the Board of Education.

In order to gather input on these recommendations and determine next steps, the Board will host two Town Hall meetings that are open to the public.

  • Central High School on Thursday, June 23, 2016 at 6:00 p.m.

610 West University Avenue – Enter at Seely Hall on Park Ave.

  • Centennial High School on Thursday, July 14, 2016 at 6:00 p.m.

913 Crescent Drive – Enter at North Visitor’s Entrance

This summer, the Board of Education will also conduct a community survey to gather input. Information on this survey and how to participate will become available in the coming weeks.

Information about the collaborative planning process is available on the project website, facilityplanning.champaignschools.org.

This work is also explained and discussed on the Unit 4 Board Corner Blog at u4boardcorner.blogspot.com.

    Unfortunately, I was not pleased to hear about the “open house” style this turned into – and apparently it was not what Brian Moline or Nicole Lafond were expecting either (according to the WILL interview):

    I am glad some individuals got their comments out into the public sphere.
