Anyway, at the right place. Rezoning information session thread starts here. 🧜🏻♀️
- demographic and population changes
- consolidating building facilities (schools, admin/office staff, etc)
#1: community engagement
#2: improving student experience
Yes. School closures are a topic of discussion here. It is CRITICAL to get engaged in this process. #RPSBoard 🧜🏻♀️
OPTIONS WILL BE PRESENTED TO THE COMMITEE AT THE MEETING IN LATE JUNE!!!!! #RPSBoard 🧜🏻♀️
It’ll be online either the same day or day after. #RPSBoard 🧜🏻♀️
Q1: did you account for schools with exceptional Ed and pre-K classes in class size when calculating utilization?
Yes. They reduced classroom capacity for schools with those programs.
A: new data.
They want input from everyone. Answer was pretty weak but Dr. Harris jumped up with the office of Community engagement’s specific strategy of engagement. Chairwoman Page adds to that engagement pitch w/ diversity of rezoning committee. 🧜🏻♀️
A: Hard to say because #RPSBoard then only took some of the recommendations and stuff. 🧜🏻♀️
A: community engagement.
Dr. Harris stands and adds that this will be an emotional process and we will acknowledge the emotion, honor it, recognize it’s hard....
Cooper adjusts his statement on emotion to say that that’s what he meant. Don’t drive the convo with emotion. 🧜🏻♀️
A: they have a way to calculate that in and out flow. They can factor in students that go to their school in district vs students that don’t. 🧜🏻♀️
A: we can’t really do that because it would be hypothetical and guess work unless they know where the schools are going to be
wouldn’t that include demolition? couldn’t that in theory also include the recommendation to build a new school on that site?
Obviously it isn’t going to be +/-2% but like.... yo.... we have a LOT of buildings to figure out what to do with. Idk. 🤷🏻♀️
A: that decision will be made as part of the rezoning.
Wow. I seriously thought it was just me being busy that missed this meeting but I only happened to see it by chance at 2PM. 😳
