The facilities task force group met last night to discuss ways to get the information out to our taxpayers regarding the building bond and ways to gather more feedback from all parties.
Three areas of criticism stood out from our two previously failed bond referendums.
There were three areas that drove our discussion: 1. How can we do a better job of defining and communicating the district's needs. 2. How do we do a better job of gathering feedback and building consensus and ownership with our taxpayers?
3. What data are we missing and how do we get accurate data out to all parties?
We all agreed, that by taking the year to listen and communicate our needs, will be an important step to a successful bond referendum.
Our first task is to mail out a short survey to all registered taxpayers and ask them to take the time to fill out a short survey and return the survey in the self-addressed stamped envelope provided. We decided to use the paper method versus hiring a company or using other more expensive survey methods.
The information you provide will drive our bond planning process. Our goal is to work with you to put forth a building project that the majority can support.
We need your help and guidance.
We invite you to take this year get to know who we are - We are "CLIPPERS" - proud of our tradition and our past but also looking to build our future and prepare all the children we serve for their future.
Together we can accomplish great things!
