These topics generate a lot of discussion, and that's great, because we need to hear what you think. Isle of Wight County Schools is currently in the process of developing a long range facility plan. As part of that process, we are gathering input from the community. We held two meetings--February 5 at SHS and February 12 at WHS--to share things to consider are we start to put a plan together. We asked people at the meeting several questions:
- transportation--how long is too long to be on a bus?
- class size--what is the maximum class size for an elementary classroom? for middle school? for high school?
- trailers--how many trailers are OK to use for classrooms?
- rezoning--should children attend school in their community?
The survey can be found on our website---https://www.iwcs.k12.va.us/apps/pages/planning--and is open through Tuesday, Feb. 20. If you haven't already responded, I encourage you to do so.
We will have additional community meetings on March 12 at Smithfield High and March 13 at Windsor, both starting at 6:00 pm. Please use as many of these opportunities to share your opinion. Attending meetings and completely a survey truly take very little time, but your participation can help us set our course for many years to come.
