This report was written to build support for a viable option at a time when this community is sorely in need of consensus. It is not intended to be a criticism of anyone involved in the process thus far. Rather, it is an attempt to change the conversation from talking about each other to talking about the district’s educational future. This high school construction project should be cause for community celebration. Instead, it has become one of the most divisive issues this community has ever faced.
The readers of this report are invited to draw their own conclusions as to whether the proposed one large high school building or the continued use of the existing two high school buildings (with total renovation) best meet the future educational needs of the district. This report should serve as a platform for a constructive dialogue between the school board and the community it serves. With all due respect to assertions made otherwise, this type of community-building and effective dialogue has simply not yet occurred.
