Community forums your chance to speak up

After talking one-on-one to parents and residents, West Fargo school board members and administrators have been told repeatedly that the first bond election package was too big and too expensive. So they have come up with a new scaled-down school construction project proposal that they hope will pass in a second bond election. But they want input from the community to guide their decisions before moving forward.

If you missed the first community input meeting conducted by the West Fargo Schools to discuss plans for a second bond election, there's still time to attend a second meeting scheduled tonight (Thursday, August 13) at the Sheyenne Ninth Grade Center, or a final meeting on Monday, August 17, at the West Fargo High School. Both meetings begin at 6:30 p.m. The first public meeting was held on August 11, at Cheney Middle School, with about 60 people attending.

This is your chance to speak up and voice your views to help give our school leaders direction on this important issue. Let's unite and take ownership in our schools by giving input to help shape what our future schools will look like.

Make a point to attend the community input meetings and share your questions and comments.
