A Message from the Principal
I know that many of you have asked about where Abernethy fits in the district boundary conversations for right sizing schools. We are at a very critical point of the process. Enrollment balancing scenarios will be publicly released on Thursday, October 29th at 5:45 pm, during the DBRAC meeting at the BESC and posted online on the Growing Great Schools site (www.pps.net, Click the green Growing Great Schools button). The DBRAC meeting will be streamed live at PPS 28 Live.
Release of the scenarios will launch the broader community process -
The scenarios will undergo a month of review by the public and DBRAC before DBRAC makes a recommendation to the Superintendent. The first of these review sessions is being held on November 9th from 6-8pm at Hosford Middle School (2303 SE 28th Place, 97214).
The Superintendent is scheduled to make a final proposal to the board in January. Board review and a vote is then expected to occur in the weeks to follow.
Please check out the brochure for Growing Great Schools for more information and meeting dates: http://www.pps.k12.or.us/files/enrollment-transfer/10-20-15-EB-Brochure-ScenarioDevelopment.pdf .
I have not been informed of the scenarios yet, but assume that we will be impacted. Please think about becoming informed and lending your voice to this process.
