Public Share Session - Tuesday, May 17, 2022

Dear Dutch Families,
A public share session will be held in the St. Marys Area Middle School LGI on Tuesday, May 17, 2022 from 5:30 to 6:30 p.m.  This will be an informal opportunity to provide input on a proposal to close Bennetts Valley Elementary School and restructure other buildings in the district for the 23-24 academic year.  Some specific areas on which the District would like input include:
  • Closure of Bennetts Valley Elementary School
  • Restructuring the Middle School for grades 5-7
  • Moving grade 8 to the High School
  • Various orientations of grade levels at Fox Township Elementary School and South St. Marys Elementary School which could include (but not limited to):
A: Fox (Pre-K and K), South (1-4)
B: Fox (3-4), South (Pre-K-2)
C: Fox (Pre-K-4), South (Pre-K-4)
This is a great opportunity for you to provide input on these items in an open forum.  The District is interested in your thoughts on the strengths of each model and your concerns about any of these possibilities.  Your input will help the District make quality and informed decisions moving forward.
Thank you for all that you do to support our school and community.
