2019 Community Facilities Task Force
Shakopee Public Schools is now accepting applications for the 2019 Community Facilities Task Force.
The Community Facilities Task Force will analyze pertinent information and examine the use of existing space in the district and share recommendations for ways to use the existing space. Our Community Facilities Task Force will be comprised of a broad cross section of interests from school district residents and parents to district staff and administration.
The goal of the Task Force is to achieve a thorough understanding of the capacity of existing spaces and the areas where space is available. The Task Force will make a recommendation of the most appropriate use of these spaces to the School Board. The Task Force analysis will include Pearson School and the Central Family Center (CFC). It will also take into account enrollment trends.
