The Delaware School District Consolidation Task Force, as authorized by House Concurrent Resolution #39, is in full swing. Whatever that means! But below is a list of ALL the meetings scheduled to date. No sane person could possibly attend all of them. I’m sure someone will try though. Not this guy! The first sub-committee meeting for the Structure group met last Monday, August 28th. All meetings are open to the public and public comment will be allowed. Whether you agree or not with district consolidation, make your voice heard. I like that the main task force group is utilizing schools from each county. Below the schedule is information the task force wants from YOU!

I will pin this article to the top of the blog and will update meetings as the information becomes available.
As well, State Rep. Earl Jaques is looking for YOUR suggestions on how a district consolidation would take place. Below is a Suggestion Graphic which, should you choose to participate, would need to be sent back by September 11th. This would be up for discussion at the next regular Task Force meeting, on September 18th.
Feel free to slice and dice the State of Delaware any way you want for this. But take it seriously. You never know… your suggestion could become the final outcome! I am a member of the Finance Sub-Committee but will be paying attention to every meeting taking place. Sorry I missed the first Structure Sub-Committee meeting!
