The Tolland Board of Education invites you to participate in the final meeting in a series of community workshops regarding the development of a facility plan for our District's schools.
The Board selected Drummey Rosane Anderson, Inc. (“DRA”) to develop the School Facility Utilization & Assessment Study. In this workshop, DRA will focus on the top scenarios deemed feasible based on their research to date - including talking to staff, touring facilities, and meeting with residents. The agenda, provided below, will include an opportunity for the public to give feedback. After the workshop, DRA will craft their report of recommendations to the Tolland Board of Education. If you are interested, more background on the process is provided below.
We encourage your attendance and participation, and invite you to share your thoughts, ideas and suggestions.
Children (ages 3 and older) and school-aged children are invited to attend with their families. Age-appropriate activities will be planned.
