A nearly year long process is about to wrap up for a community group charged with helping determing what the community wants to see for the future of Maroa-Forsyth Schools facilities.
The district is dealing with a dated middle school and with several options on the table, last week the community and district took a step towards having a recommendation for the Board of Education. Dr. John Ahlemeyer says after a series of meetings with the community, the best scoring option was building a new middle school in Maroa and adding on to the high school to have joining facilities.
According to Dr. Ahlemeyer, their community leadership team is going to launch a survey that community members are encouraged to participate in online. He says based on those results, it will help guide the group in what they recommend to the Board of Education in hopes of getting a referendum on the ballot in March.
The other two options considered by the community this past week simply built a new middle school at their existing site or build a new middle school in Forsyth. No matter the results of the community survey, Dr. Ahlemeyer believes the district is going to have a great option going forward.
