On September 8 at 6:30 pm there will be a public forum at CCA HS. The meeting will begin with a short presentation in the Performing Arts Center, to be followed by input gathering in the lunchroom area.  Please invite any and all interested patrons to this meeting.

One of the critical decisions that the district will be making is how best to accommodate the increased enrollment at the elementary level. Is it through a new building, or via additions to existing buildings? There will also be discussion around prioritizing a variety of other district needs.

Below are options that surfaced from the facilities committee. A final plan doesn't necessarily have to be one or the other, but could be some combination of the priorities demonstrated in these plans.

Key facts:

  • Must stay within $25 million.
  • NBE will be over instructional capacity in 17-18, with TE soon to follow.
  • Timing of high school passing 900 students and bonding timelines dictate that the final addition to the high school should likely be on this bond.

At the December meeting the CCA Board of Education approved the following calendar for 2016-2017.  Spring break was the primary topic of discussion.  After reviewing the data from the survey of parents and staff, the calendar was approved with a full week of spring break.  We do request that staff and families make their best efforts to plan trips over the break time.  The Board also expressed their intent to utilize this calendar template in coming years.
