Group of parents talking

In an effort to promote a culture of service, engage with our community and improve communication from the district, BSD is launching six community advisory groups. The focus area for each of the groups were identified during Dr. Duran’s Fall 2017 Listening Tour. Each group will begin with a series of sessions where community members and key partners will have an opportunity to provide feedback on the broader issue being discussed and offer ideas for possible next steps.

Growth & Planning

This group will consider issues with facilities and enrollment and assist the district with recommendations regarding a long-range facility plan.  The committee will evaluate issues such as new enrollment growth; attendance area boundaries; transportation; class sizes and recommendations to the board regarding potential future bond consideration.
