Recently, using funds from a grant obtained from the Oregon Department of Education, Banks School District recently had DLR Associates conduct a thorough long-range assessment of the structures in the Banks School District. The assessment is designed to evaluate each of the buildings and the current state of each building. This long-range assessment process will lead to a formation of a long-range facilities committee that will be formed in the month of September. This committee will have the responsibility of planning a long-range vision of the facilities in the District. This is not necessarily planning for a specific building, but the overall vision of the District moving forward as it relates to academics and extra-currilcuar activities. This also has the potential to lead to a bond proposal for the Banks School District.
Please look for applications that will be posted on the website soon, if you would like to apply to be part of the committee. The committee will consist of parents, community members, and District staff members. The time commitment will be three meetings in October, November, and December. If you have any questions, please call me at 503-324-8591.
