District seeks community input in planning future

Does South Kitsap need another high school?

Should the aging South Colby Elementary be replaced?

Should the district improve infrastructure to support classroom technology?

These are just some of the questions the South Kitsap School District’s Long-Range Facilities Planning Task Force is currently considering with respect to the future of South Kitsap School District (SKSD).

In February, Superintendent Bev Cheney convened a community-based facilities planning task force to develop recommendations for this long-range facilities plan. The task force has now released a preliminary proposal and is seeking community feedback.

This proposal will be available on the district Web site at

The task force has scheduled three open house events to further explain the proposal and to gather additional information and comments from the community. If you cannot attend an open house, you may still submit feedback to the task force using an on-line comment form available on the district’s website through Wednesday, May 24.

Open houses are scheduled for:

Tuesday, May 9, 6:30 to 8 p.m. at John Sedgwick Junior High School

Wednesday, May 17, 6:30 to 8 p.m. at Marcus Whitman Junior High School

Monday, May 22, 6:30 to 8 p.m. at Cedar Heights Junior High School
