CONSTRUCTION IS nearing completion on Greater Albany School District’s two new facilities at Oak Grove and Meadow Ridge. The district has formed a committee to address the activation of these facilities, composed of parents, teachers, principals, seniors, and other community leaders.
Questions to be addressed by the committee:
How should Oak Grove, North Albany Elementary, and Fir Grove be organized by grade level and general use? How should the school boundaries be organized?
Should Fir Grove remain in use as a neighborhood school?
Should Meadow Ridge open in the middle of the academic year when it’s complete, or should the district wait until Fall 2020?
How should the grade levels for Meadow Ridge and Timber Ridge be organized?
Community open house structure and process:
There is no fixed presentation; information will be presented on informational kiosk stations and participants may hear a brief, personalized presentation from a district facilitator and ask questions.
Community members may attend a meeting at any time during the declared two-hour meeting window, and at any location. The content of both meetings at each location is the same.
An information sheet will be distributed identifying the remaining decisions, and a survey will be be made available for reporting to the committee and school board, to inform their final decisions.
