Families come together to talk about future of Andersen
More than 50 Andersen parents and community members came together this week to learn about the projected enrollment growth in the district and its impact on our school. District leaders are beginning to explore the possibility of replacing our 100+ year old building with a larger, new school somewhere close, and this was the first opportunity for families to weigh in.
The session included a short presentation by district administration. There was also time for small group conversations to gather feedback on what participants feel are the needs, dreams/ideas and priorities for a new Andersen. They talked about classroom learning spaces, green/outdoor spaces and specialty spaces (like a media center, art and music classrooms and gathering spaces). View the presentation.
The feedback collected will be shared with a Facilities Planning Team, which will be meeting in April and May to identify priorities for a facilities improvement plan. Additional conversations will be held this spring and summer to allow for more feedback from our school community. Learn more at stillwaterschools.org/growth.
