School Efficiency Study - Parent Focus Group Opportunities - Dec. 1 & 3

School Efficiency Study - Parent Focus Group Opportunities - Dec. 1 & 3

The West Bloomfield School District (WBSD) Board and administration seek to ensure student and community needs are met while also being efficient.  The District has undertaken an efficiency study during the fall that has identified potential opportunities for needed operational savings.  The District has operated its five elementary schools with room for about 30% more students than are enrolled and the District has central operations that are spread among multiple locations.  

A steering committee appointed by the Board is considering recommendations that might result in a consolidation from five elementary schools to four and changes in the location of central services.   These options were also identified during the district’s 2012 SEAF process.  Changes at the middle and high school level are not proposed.

The District invites you to participate in a virtual parent presentation addressing the data that supports eventual action and refers participants to a survey that collects your perspective on specific scenarios.  The virtual meetings will be hosted by the District’s planning consultant, Western Demographics, via Zoom, at the times designated below.
