We Want to Hear From You! Upcoming Strategic Consolidation Meetings

Please join us for the second round of public meetings in Fall 2019 as we continue to discuss Master Planning for Strategic Consolidation.

These meetings will discuss data from last year's meetings and community survey results from this summer. There will also be specific options of campus plans presented in which the community can provide more targeted impact and feedback on the future of our facilities.

The specific campus options include:

Elementary Schools (Pre-K through 5th Grade)

Option A: Six schools

Option B: Seven schools

Option C: Eight schools

Secondary Schools (6th through 12th grade)

Option A: One high school (9-12), two middle schools (6-8)

Option B: Three secondary campuses, each with one 6-8 school and one 9-12 school

Option C: Two secondary campuses, each with one 6-8 school and one 9-12 school and a separate campus for Career Technical Education and other district functions

“We were very excited to review our communities' input this summer and grateful that so many of our stakeholders took the time to participate in our meetings or survey last school year,” expressed Parma City School District Superintendent Charles Smialek, Ph.D. “We are even more excited to enter our next phase of this critical process as our families, staff members and the community will be able to provide their feedback about specific options that our architects have devised for us. Based upon this second phase of feedback, we will form a clear recommendation to the Board of Education by the end of this calendar year.”

GPD Group are the architects who will work closely with the school district on this project and will be present at each public meeting to answer questions and concerns from the public.
