South Bend Community Schools seeking community input on district development
SOUTH BEND, Ind. – The South Bend Community Schools Corporation is hosting two public meetings to get community input on the district’s facilities master plan.
Guests at the meeting will be able to share their thoughts on topics like special education, fine arts, athletics, magnet options, and more.
Those in attendance are also asked to share insight into the corporation’s district and community.
“The input of our stakeholders is crucial to the success of this endeavor,” said Kareemah Fowler, Assistant Superintendent of Business and Finance. “This is a vital step toward a more successful district, and we cannot proceed without careful consideration of the current culture—where we are now, where we belong, and how we can enhance and redesign our environment for the success of our students, teachers, families, and the entire South Bend community.”
The first meeting will be held on March 19 from 9 to 11 a.m. at the Brown Community Learning Center.
The second meeting will be held on May 5 from 5 to 7 p.m. at the Charles Black Community Center.
The May 5 meeting will go over input gathered during the March 19 meeting.
A survey will be available on the district’s website immediately following the May 5 meeting. The survey will be open until 5 p.m. on May 15.
Both meetings include a 30-minute presentation followed by community discussion.
An online questionnaire will be available for two weeks following the first meeting. The questionnaire will also be distributed to students, staff, and teachers.
