The next meeting of the PUSD Master Planning Subcommittee will be on Tuesday, September 3 at 3:30 pm in Room 229 at the Ed Center. The agenda hasn't been posted yet, but our understanding is that elementary schools will be part of the agenda. (Click here for a message from the PEN Board of Directors about the Master Planning and school consolidation effort.) The committee is scheduled to discuss elementary scenarios with the full board of education on September 19.
The Sub-committee is scheduled to present recommendations for both elementary and secondary schools to the Full Board in October, and no decisions will be made before then.
The Sub-committee is charged as follows: “In order to provide robust, quality programs at each of our schools, in a fiscally stable manner in spite of a declining enrollment environment, the Master Planning and Boundaries committee will review existing site programs and capacities and future expected enrollment and bring to the board recommendations on the number and location of school sites to maintain for the next 5 to 10 years.”
