September Community Feedback Sessions

The Strategic Facilities Committee will hold three community feedback sessions on September 17, 18, and 19, 2019. These sessions will provide community members with an opportunity to offer their views on the preliminary recommendations of the Committee, which was appointed by the Board of Education in March 2019. The Committee will deliver final recommendations to the Board in November 2019. Since the community feedback sessions are critical to the success of the Committee’s work, they will be recorded so that no input, comments or questions are overlooked during the development of the final recommendations. Each listening session will be preceded by a brief presentation on the Committee’s preliminary recommendations.
The community feedback sessions will be held between 6:30 and 8:30 pm at the following locations:
  • Tuesday, September 17: Southern Garrett High School Cafeteria, 345 Oakland Drive, Oakland, MD
  • Wednesday, September 18: Garrett College, Room 111/112 of the Garrett Information Enterprise Center (GIEC) Building, 687 Mosser Road McHenry, MD
  • Thursday, September 19: Northern Middle School Cafeteria, 371 Pride Parkway, Accident, MD
Community members are encouraged to attend one of these sessions to share their feedback regarding the preliminary recommendations of the Strategic Facilities Committee.
