Decision on BOLD proposal expected Feb. 11

February 03, 2016

The school board is expected to vote on the Stillwater BOLD recommendation to right-size our elementary schools to best meet the needs of ALL students during its meeting on Thursday, Feb. 11 at 6:30 p.m. Included in the recommendation is the proposed closing of Marine, Oak Park and Withrow elementary schools for the start of the 2017-2018 school year.

To accommodate a large crowd, the meeting will be held in the auditorium at Stillwater Junior High. We are unable to webstream from this location, but the meeting will be broadcast live on Cable Channel 15 and a copy of the video will be posted to our website. 

Parents and community members will have an opportunity to speak with district leaders during a listening session, which will be held prior to the meeting beginning at 5 p.m. There will be time for 18 speakers to share their feedback and ask questions about the BOLD proposal or other topics. Advanced sign-up is first come, first served and each speaker will have up to four minutes to provide feedback and district leaders will have one minute to respond.
