PPS Board Looks Forward to Working Closely with Community

To the Editor:

A well-attended community planning session at Princeton High School on Saturday, January 25, was an important step for our school district. The Board was pleased to welcome over 160 community members, who heard from our planners and provided input on the future of our public schools. The solutions to balancing community growth with great public schools remain an open question, subject to months of work and continued conversation. The Board is looking forward to working closely with the community to define a future that reflects our mission and the community’s values — preparing students for lives of joy and purpose while respecting affordability, equity, and sustainability. It’s a tall order that will require all voices and a collaborative spirit.

For those who couldn’t attend Saturday’s initial forum, data on enrollment and school capacity are available on the PPS website (princetonk12.org). Community members are also invited to join the conversation by completing a survey, found on our website, by February 10. Additional opportunities for engagement will follow soon. We are grateful for this community’s strong support for our public schools.
