Columbus City Schools Community Meeting regarding proposal to close schools

September 10, 2018 6:00 pm @ 6:00 pm - 7:30 pm

  • Sumo

STAY INFORMED & MAKE YOUR VOICE HEARD!
A citizen advisory task force convened by the Columbus City Schools Board of Education has been meeting regularly since April to review data and consider options for schools and administrative buildings the school board might consider for closing, with possible impacts to attendance boundaries, enrollment, and/or grade configurations for schools.

On Thursday the task force approved their official recommendations, and will formally present those to the Board of Education at its regular meeting tomorrow, Tuesday, September 4, starting at 5:30 PM (270 E State Street). This meeting is open to the public. Additional community meetings have been scheduled where members of the public can provide feedback to task force representatives and school board members – read more about that below. The task force will reconvene in October to provide the school board with its final recommendation. At that point, any recommendations would need to be voted on and approved by the board. If approved, changes would not begin until the 2019-2020 school year.
