The community has defeated a referendum for a $195 million new high school TWICE in less than 12 months.  We are calling on our community take an additional step and let our Board of Education know we want an independent enrollment forecast, facilities analysis, and then a new round of REAL community engagement listing the challenges we face so we can all be included in developing a BETTER PLAN to put forward to the community.   The goal should be having a new plan supported with independent data, a full understanding of our facilities and how to maximize them, and a new plan in time for the April 2025 election.

EMAIL or WRITE our Board of Education and let them know what you expect moving forward.

Open Meetings Act ("OMA")

School Board Policy Book

The various policies the govern our school board's activities can be found on the Central 301 website, however, they are in individual PDF files which makes it difficult to search for a keyword or topic.

We've aggregated the PDF files and compiled them into one document.  If you search this document for a particular policy, please go to the Central website and locate the individual file to make sure you are reading the most up-to-date version of the policy.

Searchable Board Policy Book.
