SPRINGFIELD, Ore. — The Springfield School District is reaching out to the public for help after its bond measure failed.
It’s hosting two open forums for people to share their thoughts about how the district should deal with the problems the bond would have helped address.
District Communications Specialist Devon Ashbridge says they are encouraging everyone, from community members to parents, teachers, and staff members to participate.
“Our schools really belong to our community, and we firmly believe that, and we also strongly believe that our community belongs in our schools. So what we’re asking is for people to come help us align our vision for our schools with what our community needs and wants, and to do that, we need to hear from our community.”
The first meeting will be February 4th at Hamlin Middle School’s library at 6:30 p.m.
The second will be on February 18th in the library at Thurston Middle School at 6:30 p.m.
