Public Meeting Tonight On Valpo Schools’ Future
August 13, 2014 — The new Valparaiso Community Schools superintendent is holding a public meeting Thursday night at 6 o’clock at Thomas Jefferson Middle School for input into the district’s future.
Ric Frataccia wants comment on the outline this his predecessor, Mike Berta, introduced back in April. It’ll be the third community input meeting for “Phase II: Considerations for K-12 21st Century Learning,” a plan that calls for repairing and improving buildings and restoring positions and programs.
Frataccia wants to have some sort of plan — with estimated costs — by early fall based on public input, his experience and School Board Members’ experiences, but he says that isn’t a firm deadline.
He says he’ll suggest a referendum for building improvement and another for the general fund, and the public will vote on referendums for both in either May or November 2015.
