The Board of Education met Dec. 5, 2017, with Nick Salmon, founder and president of Collaborative Learning Network, who has been retained as a consultant to assist the board in developing a plan for its master planning process. He is identifying the data needed for the planning process including enrollment, school sites, facilities, and funding; creating a timeline; assessing the feasibility of completing a master plan for bond election scenarios; identifying key participants in the planning effort; and identifying community engagement tools. Mr. Salmon toured all PCSD schools and properties to review current space uses and to meet with school leaders to establish key issues at each site. He also met with the Facility Committee to review the planning process and to identify community partners for the planning process and school success. He presented his findings to the board Dec. 19, 2017. Both reports are below.
