In an odd attempt to encourage public engagement, while simultaneously limiting said engagement, the Portland School Board and PPS staff have invited the public to attend a brief, under-publicized community meeting this week to discuss the rebuilding of Marysville School.
While PPS does not advertise this meeting on their website, nor their calendar, rest assured, they want you to be abreast of all developments and keep you engaged in the planning process. Fortunately, I was able to get ahold of a letter that PPS sent to Marysville parents, informing them of the meeting. At least current families are being included in the process. However, for those who don’t have school-aged children, the invite wasn’t so explicit. Fear not, though…here’s your formal invite.
What: Marysville School rebuild community meeting
Where: Y Arts Center, 6036 SE Foster Road
When: Thursday, November 17, from 6:30-7:30 pm
