Frankfort Square School feasibility study begins; results to be presented in January

A fact-finding committee is being formed to determine the feasibility of moving Frankfort Square students, staff, and administration from the current location on Frankfort Square Road to the Districtís Rosewood Drive location. As part of the feasibility study, staff members are preparing data on finances, enrollment, transportation, phone systems, and building conditions for review in mid-September. Focus group meetings with Frankfort Square parents and residents to discuss the potential relocation will then be scheduled. Earlier this week, Frankfort Square staff toured the Rosewood Drive location. The District also met with the Frankfort Square Park District to gauge interest in the Frankfort Square Road location. The feasibility study will be presented at the Board's planning session in January, 2016.
