School closure once again up for discussion | Meeting reminder

April 26th, 2012 at Thu, 26th, 2012 at 2:57 pm by Kipp Robertson

It looks like the possibility of a school closure for the 2012-13 school year is once again a topic of discussion.

Tonight the North Kitsap School Board will resume the discussion. The school board meeting begins at 6 p.m. The public is welcome to attend.

The continued talk between board members was requested in order to give Board Director Scott Henden an opportunity to weigh in on the topic. Henden was absent during the last regular meeting, when the board decided to take more time to consider a closure.

Along with allowing Henden to discuss a possible closure, both the Citizens Budget Advisory Committee and Capital Facilities Advisory Committee have requested the board reconsider a school closure for next year.

The memo from superintendent Richard Jones to the school board is here.
