SKSD facility long-range planning advisory committee seeks members

Group to recommend maintenance, upgrades to school board

PORT ORCHARD — Parents, students, community members and staff of South Kitsap School District are encouraged to apply for a seat on the Facility Long-Range Planning Advisory Committee, the district announced last week.

The district’s board of directors called for the formation of the committee to consider, develop and recommend long-term plans for the physical facilities that are part of South Kitsap School District.

According to the district, the group will recommend priorities for addressing deferred maintenance and planned upgrades to district facilities with benchmarks at a minimum of five years. The committee will serve in an advisory capacity and will report regularly to the school board as members consider future ballot measures.

Committee meetings will start early next year. Those interested in applying should contact the superintendent’s office for an application at 360-874-7001 or by email at info@skschools.org.

SKSD has 16 schools and serves approximately 8,500 students in grades K-12.
