Community facility advisory committee to begin planning work for SKSD

Committee’s work hinges on approval of November propositions

PORT ORCHARD — The South Kitsap School District’s board of directors has asked Superintendent Karst Brandsma to establish a committee to conduct “big-picture” planning related to opening a second high school and to review long-range capital facility plans.

The work of the committee, to be called the Community Facility Advisory Committee (CFAC), has been tasked to position the school board and staff to move forward with construction as soon as possible should voters approve the Nov. 6 bond and capital levy propositions.

In a district news release, Brandsma said representatives from the community and school staff will comprise the committee. He said designated board members will occasionally attend the meetings but will not serve on the committee.

Meetings will begin this month and end at the close of the year.

Committee tasks will include providing recommendations to the board of directors on the following:

— high-level direction on major steps and timelines needed for future capital projects;

— design planning and education specifications for the second high school;

— attendance area and boundary recommendations for the second high school;

— long-range facility planning for future ballot measures;

— review and recommend the second high school’s construction calendar;

— review and recommend the second high school’s student boundary and service area process and timelines, and;

— review and recommend a timeline for future ballot measures.

Board advisory committees, when needed, are used to support the work of the board of directors and broaden the board’s perspective, Amy Miller, district spokeswoman, said. She said the Instructional Materials Committee is the only other current committee at work for the school board.

More information about the Community Facility Advisory Committee is available through the superintendent’s office at 360-874-7001 or
