Feasibility & Facilities

Act 34 Hearing Scheduled

The District is required by Act 34 of 1973 to hold a public hearing on the proposed construction of any new facility in the District. This law requires that the Board hold a special meeting to provide the community with an opportunity to view the plans for the new construction and make public comments regarding the project.

The public hearing for Rossmoyne Elementary will be held at Allen Middle School on October 10, 2018 beginning at 7 p.m. Members of the public are invited to attend and will have the opportunity to offer comments and ask questions.

In addition to the hearing, with the help of the architects and its financial advisors, the District is sharing the attached Act 34 Booklet for Rossmoyne Elementary with the public for review.

Feasibility & Facilities Information

In May 2017, following a Feasibility & Facilities Study and based in part on input from students, staff, parents, and community members, the Board of School Directors unanimously voted to move forward with a Feeder School Concept for our District. This concept includes funds for modern climate control, security, accessibility, and technology. Additionally, the Feeder School Concept will address enrollment needs, ensure that subjects like music and art are provided with appropriate spaces, and create flexible student work environments that support 21st Century teaching and learning. Throughout this process, the District remains committed to developing budgets that consider the impact on taxpayers and otherwise protect the District’s long-term financial stability.
