All VES parents are invited to a parent forum TONIGHT, Thursday, February 16th from 6:30 PM to 7:30 PM in the school gym.
A similar presentation will occur next Thursday, February 23rd for EES families, also at 6:30 (AT EES).
On the agenda will be a presentation from the Elementary Enrollment Balancing committee. This group, composed of staff from both elementary schools, has been looking into ongoing enrollment concerns; chief among them how to balance class size between the two buildings. With enrollment at Veneta projected to grow, keeping class sizes equitable between the two schools is a concern. Gary Carpenter, Fern Ridge School District superintendent, along with members of the Elementary Enrollment Equalization committee will outline what the enrollment problems are and some possible solutions the committee has been exploring. This is a great opportunity for parents to get information directly from the source and provide feedback that will help the district in finding an answer to this ongoing problem.
