The goal of the focus group workshop will be to provide information to the Bond Project Team which will be gathered, organized and prioritized according to needs and available funding. This information will then be put forward to the District School Board as a recommendation for which elements and features should be incorporated into the design.  

Participation in these focus groups will potentially be an ongoing commitment; the District respectfully requests that community members who wish to participate remain available throughout the duration of the process.

Please note that in addition to the focus group workshops intended to provide constructive input to the District design process the District will be holding Open House events where community members can meet the Bond Project Team, ask questions and voice opinions.

If you would like to participate please email Dr. Rob Clark, Superintendent, rob.clark@miltfree.k12.or.us.

The District’s project team is excited to keep the Bond Project process moving forward and ensuring open communication and engagement with the Milton-Freewater community.  Please forward this invitation to anyone who you think might be interested in participating.
