SMMUSD TO HOLD FACILITIES POLICY FORUM

 

Tim Cuneo, Superintendent of Schools, announced today that a forum to discuss the Districtís proposed Facilities Policy will be held Saturday, March 28, 2009, from 9:00am to 12:00pm in the John Adams Middle School Cafeteria.The purpose of the forum is to gather input from parents and other community members that will be used in the development of a new policy to govern the use of district facilities.The decision to convene this meeting was made in response to questions about the appropriate use of district facilities that emerged relative to a scheduled fundraising event for Edison School that featured comedian Carlos Mencia, which was ultimately cancelled.

 

The forum will include a panel discussion featuring several community leaders, who will share their perspectives on the topic, as well as opportunities for forum attendees to contribute to the discussion.The meeting is open to the public, and Superintendent Cuneo, on behalf of the district, invites parents and interested community members to participate in this event.
