Recommendation to the Board (Update from the Oct. 2 Meeting)

Dr. Paul Kelly, assistant superintendent for business services, welcomed everyone, and the advisory committee approved its minutes from the previous meeting.

Public Feedback:
Nicole Kirby, director of communication services, reviewed all the feedback from the idea boards on Park Hill Listens. The advisory committee members discussed the feedback they received both online and in person at the open house.

Selection of Recommendation:
Each member of the advisory committee filled out a ballot, ranking the final three ideas. Based on their votes, the Yellow idea will be the advisory committee's final recommendation to the Board of Education.

List of Considerations:
The advisory committee members made a list of considerations for ways the district could improve the Yellow idea. Please check back to Park Hill Listens in the next few days to see this list.

Next Steps:

  • Oct. 10, 2019: The Board receives the advisory committee's recommended plan.

  • Oct. 17, 2019: The Board discusses the final recommendation.

  • Oct. 24, 2019: The Board considers and votes on the final recommendation. We will send out a message sharing that decision right away that night.

  • Winter 2020: At the end of the 2019-2020 school year, we will be at the end of our current contract for transportation services. This fall, we will open up a request for proposals to any interested transportation provider, and in the winter, we will select our provider. Our provider for next year will need to review the final start times plan and might make small tweaks.

  • August 2020: The new school start times will take effect in the 2020-2021 school year.
