Coos Bay School’s Building Configuration Options Survey #3

The Coos Bay School District has long shared with the community the rapidly aging condition of their facilities as well their ideas for providing 21st Century learning environments for your children and grandchildren.

The Board asks that you take part in this third survey in our continuing work of Phase 1 to create a long-range (3-5 years) facility plan. We need input on two building configuration options that were recommended by the Coos Bay Schools Facilities Outreach Committee and are based on community input from previous surveys. We are looking for further clarification on whether our current configuration has community support, or if not, which of the two options the community would support.

Here is the link to the survey – https://www.surveymonkey.com/s/cbschoolssurvey3 . You will also find the survey posted at www.cbd9.net and the survey will be open until August 22nd. The survey contains seven questions. We appreciate you taking a few moments to answer the questions.

Survey results will be reviewed at the September 8th School Board Meeting. The meeting starts at 6:00 PM and will be held at Milner Crest Education Center located at 1255 Hemlock Ave. (north of Mingus Park off N. 10th St.).

We want you to be involved in this important discussion. We cannot do this without our parents, staff and community.  We will not do this without our parents, staff and community.  You can make the difference.
