Our schools are at the heart of our community.
In Pierz, we are used to working together to get things done. That’s why we asked for community input on addressing the facilities challenges we have. Residents provided feedback in a community-wide survey and at public engagement meetings.
67 percent of survey respondents said they believed the referendum plan should be refined based on feedback and brought back to voters. A community-based Facilities Committee helped evaluate options that would address problems including poor instructional settings (classes in conference rooms, storage rooms, etc.) and facilities that are not up to code or too small, in a cost-effective and meaningful way.
The new plan is about half of the cost of the last referendum, involves less square footage, and does not include an auditorium.
Open-enrollment is being capped so we don’t outgrow our facilities, but these needs will not go away. Now is the time to address these issues.
