The Strategic Facilities Committee assembled by the Garrett County Public Schools is requesting community feedback. A total of three sessions will be held to provide community members with an opportunity to offer their views on the preliminary recommendations of the Committee, which was appointed by the Board of Education in March 2019. The Committee will deliver final recommendations to the Board in November 2019. Since the community feedback sessions are critical to the success of the Committee’s work, they will be recorded so that no input, comments or questions are overlooked during the development of the final recommendations. Each listening session will be preceded by a brief presentation on the Committee’s preliminary recommendations.

The ONE COMMUNITY FEEDBACK SESSION REMAINS and will be held between 6:30 and 8:30 pm at the following location:

  • Thursday, September 19: Northern Middle School Cafeteria, 371 Pride Parkway, Accident, MD

Even if you do not have children in school, the Board encourages community members to attend and share their feedback regarding the preliminary recommendations of the Strategic Facilities Committee.
