Long Range Planning Committee seeking new member

 

DOUGLAS COUNTY – The Long Range Planning Committee is accepting applications for one representative from the Chaparral High School Feeder area.

Douglas County School District’s Long Range Planning Committee (LRPC) was established in 1983 as an advisory body to the Board of Education (BoE). The LRPC is responsible for continually analyzing community population trends to determine future needs pertaining to:

School capacity
School boundaries
School and facility site selections

Additionally, the LRPC reviews and makes recommendations to the Master Capital Plan, which is updated annually. The Master Capital Plan helps support the Board of Education in determining projects for current and future bond elections. The LRPC holds a valuable role as a liaison between the community and the Board.

Meetings are usually held the first Wednesday of each month, with additional subcommittee meetings as needed. Further public meetings are occasionally held to review situations with affected communities to gain their input. District staff prepares all information either in advance, or at the request of members.

If you reside within the Chaparral High School feeder area, and are interested in serving on this important committee, please submit an application online by December 6, 2013.
