Meeting #15

  • This meeting of the school reorganization team began with Mr. Ortega summarizing where the team is currently at in the recommendation process. At the last meeting, the team decided they would like to view the results of the parent, student, and staff reorganization surveys before taking a team vote on which model(s) to recommend to the Board of Education. The surveys were closed in August, and the results were sent to the team to review.

    After reviewing the process to this point, Mr. Ortega asked the team if they desired to send one recommendation to the Board of Education or if they desired to send two models in addition to the data collected from the surveys and the team vote that would be taken later in the meeting. The overwhelming consensus from the team was that they would like to send both models to the Board of Education. The team shared final comments on the survey data they reviewed and offered final comments. After, Mr. Ortega requested that the team vote on which model they preferred. 

    42.1% of the team voted for model 3.

    57.9% of the team voted for model 4.

    The Board of Education will receive this information at the Board Study Session on September 17, 2021. The public can view the study session on Zoom or our YouTube channel.
