Roswell HS Governance Council Wants Your Opinion!
The Roswell High School Governance Council is preparing to submit to FCS two Requests For Flexibility. Before we do, we would like your opinions on them. Your feedback and input is vitally important to the process. See the RFF Public Comment Notice for more information about how to provide your input. Thank you.
Our proposals are as follows:
Parents are invited to provide input via the Facilities Assessment Survey
The purpose of the survey is to gather input to update the district's five-year facility plan. The district needs your input regarding concerns related to the condition of facilities and the educationally appropriate use of spaces within facilities. The survey will be available from November 9 through December 11. This is your opportunity to share your views regarding school system facilities. Thank you for your participation.
