Committee begins work on facilities, enrollment
A committee designed to review the division’s use of facility buildings, instructional programs and enrollment numbers got off to a good start.
The group, which was established by the school board a few months ago, met for the first time Sunday and came up with four specific items to focus on including the use of the Hanover Specialty Center, school boundaries, the Hanover Trades and Technology Center and the possibility of a career and technology education academy.
“It seemed like we’ve had a good day,” said David Myers, assistant superintendent of business and operations.
School board members created the committee due to enrollment capacity numbers, and specifically, concerns over increased numbers in some of the division’s older schools like Lee-Davis High School. The group is comprised of community members, education advocates, school board members, the superintendent and many others.
Myers said they had worked for about three months before they were able to hold their first meeting, which he said lasted 90 minutes.
