SUPPORT THIS INDEPENDENT JOURNALISM
The article you’re about to read is from our reporters doing their important work — investigating, researching, and writing their stories. We want to provide informative and inspirational stories that connect you to the people, issues and opportunities within our community. Journalism requires lots of resources. Today, our business model has been interrupted by the pandemic; the vast majority of our advertisers’ businesses have been impacted. That’s why The Capistrano Dispatch is now turning to you for financial support. Learn more about our new Insider’s program here. Thank you.
The Capistrano Dispatch
Capistrano Unified School District is calling upon parents, students, employees and others who work and live within the CUSD boundaries to actively participate on a community committee that will engage in a four-week assessment of the district’s facility needs. The committee will work collaboratively to develop recommendations and solutions to address short and long-term facility needs across the district.
The district plans to engage as many stakeholders as possible in this open, consensus-based recommendation process. Committee members will receive briefings on district facilities and facilities funding sources, the district budget and school funding, as well as discuss public information and community outreach with a final outcome of developing solutions to present to the Board of Trustees to address the short and long-term facility needs across the district.
Each committee member will be expected to commit to the entire stakeholder process, including attending all four of the weekly committee meetings and actively participating in discussions. They will also have the opportunity to tour different district facilities and school sites to gain hands-on experience in truly understanding the facility needs of the district.
Additional information about the community committee and the process for becoming a member will be publicized via email, the district’s website and the news media this summer.
