The Peninsula School District will host community meetings in an effort to problem-solve.
The board of directors started to move ahead this month with a redistricting committee, as well as other funding options.
The PSD’s $50 million capital levy effort failed in November. Had voters approved it, the money would have built a new Artondale Elementary building and a new elementary school in the rapidly growing Gig Harbor North area, as well as provided technology and security upgrades and turf field maintenance.
The meetings are scheduled to be held on the following dates:
• Jan. 14 at the Key Center branch of the Pierce County Library System.
• Jan. 15 at the Gig Harbor Boys & Girls Club.
• Jan. 16 at Goodman Middle School.
The get-togethers have been listed as a special board meetings because multiple members of the school board will be in attendance, making a quorum.
The board has been pushing to move meetings off school property and into the community. The meeting at Goodman Middle School will have a free childcare option for parents. The Goodman Middle School leadership class will run the program.Reporter Karen Miller can be reached at 253-358-4155 or by email at firstname.lastname@example.org.
