Sullivan: Facilities for the future: Part II

The second semester of the school year has begun. It is difficult to believe the 2013-14 school year is more than halfway complete.

The school district continues to welcome new students on a weekly basis from all parts of our nation and other countries. Thankfully we are well positioned at this time to accommodate the continued enrollments to the school district.

Doug Sullivan As previously reported, the school district is conducting a long-range facility planning process intended to position the school district for the future. The first public forum was conducted on a cold and blustery day in December.

The uncooperative weather undoubtedly deterred many people from attending the opportunity to provide input into the future of the Dickinson Public Schools. Thankfully, there are two more public forums scheduled this year.

The next public forum regarding the future facilities of the Dickinson Public Schools is scheduled for 7 p.m. Monday, Feb. 3 at Hagen Junior High School, 402 4th Street West.

The DLR Group will once again be conducting the discussion during this public forum.

As previously stated, this process is designed to engage the community in the discussion and seek input into the future of the school district. It is vital for the community to help decide how the school district will address the continued growth in student enrollment.

This community forum is an excellent process for constituents to contribute to the discussion. It is the hope of the school board that community members will attend this meeting and be actively engaged in the discussion.

Please place this important meeting on your agenda and plan to attend and participate in this discussion.

Sullivan is the Superintendent of Dickinson Public Schools. He fields questions Dickinson Public Schools at 701-456-0002 or through email at
