Nov. 12 Facilities tour
The committee members toured buildings from the Long-range Facilities Master Plan. This tour was essential for the members as they saw the needs of our students and staff and got a better understanding of where the district stands as they began forming a bond package.
The committee included selected community members, parents, students and district staff. Together they represented the wide diversity within the tri-cities. Committee members volunteered their time and we truly appreciate their commitment to shaping the future of our district.
