Madison High School Hosts Open House to Gather Community Input for Future Facility Master Plan

WHAT: Community members are invited to provide input to help shape the Facility Master Plan for Vision 2020 for the Madison High School Cluster Community of Schools at an interactive Open House.

The Open House will include information centers where participants can receive an introduction and instructions for providing input, learn about the Vision 2020 project and school profiles, explore current educational and community programs and discuss the immediate issues facing the cluster.

WHEN: Monday, June 2, 5-8 p.m.

WHERE: James Madison High School, 4833 Doliva Dr., 92117 (Media parking will be available on site).

VISUALS: Interactive information centers, large exhibits with school profiles, activity boards to share thoughts and feedback, student entertainment and student educational activities.

INTERVIEWS: Midori Wong, director of special projects; Richard Nash, principal of Madison High School; and Lee Dulgeroff, executive director of Facilities Planning and Construction.

An important part of Vision 2020 is a series of interactive open house events that are being held to help identify the priorities for improving the quality of our neighborhood schools and to gather input from the community to help shape Facility Master Plans for each of the 16 High School Clusters (and the elementary and middle schools that feed into each respective high school). Participants are welcome to stop by at any time, as no formal presentations will be made. At the conclusion of the open house series, a preliminary Facility Master Plan will be developed that includes information provided by participants about which educational programs, community programs and facilities should be included in each neighborhood cluster. Before the Facility Master Plans are finalized, community members will have an opportunity to help clarify input and review the plans.

The event is free and open to the public. Childcare, refreshments, student entertainment and student educational activities will be provided. Spanish interpretation will be available.

See attached flyer with layout of information centers.
