Palo Alto Unified School District's twelve elementary schools are approaching enrollment capacity. The District is convening an Elementary School Site Location Advisory Committee to assist in selecting a location for a thirteenth elementary school.
The Elementary School Site Location Advisory Committee seeks parent representation reflective of a range of perspectives and insights, which will inform the selection process. The committee will be composed of District staff, and District parents representing the north, west and south regions of Palo Alto.
The Elementary School Site Location Advisory Committee will convene January 14, 2013 and continue no later than the end of March 2013. Meetings will be held bi-weekly on Mondays, from 4:00-6:00 pm. The committee’s responsibility will be to evaluate the suitability of potential sites for use as a neighborhood school or a choice school, based on selection criteria specified by the Board of Education.
The application form contains more information about the specific duties of committee members and the expected outcomes for the group’s work. If you are interested in serving, please submit the application to firstname.lastname@example.org by December 10, 2012. The selection process will be completed by December 17, 2012.
