School administration reaching out to residents

Christine Rath, Superintendent of the Concord School District, sent a letter out to residents of the city inviting them to participate in three task forces to work on issues relating to the elementary school facilities master plan proposal. One committee will deal with what is being called "ed specs," specifically, "educational programs that could take place within the new or renovated facility." A second group will study how existing buildings could be used in the future if they are no longer schools. And the third group will study the costs of building new schools or renovating the older ones. The letter notes that this group will "research construction and operating costs, review the district's current and future debt and explore funding options." This group will also look at building and maintaining "green" schools in the future.
An organizational meeting will be held on Wednesday, Dec. 5 at 4 p.m. Anyone interested in serving on the committees can call Jane Murray at 225-0811 or email:
