Steamboat school board: Thank you Advisory Committee members

The Steamboat Springs Board of Education wants to share our sincere appreciation for the work done over the past year by the Advisory Committee to the Steamboat Springs School District.

This diverse group of our fellow community members, which included parents, teachers, senior citizens, business leaders and even those members of our community without children in the school system, spent countless hours researching, developing scenarios, assisting with community meetings and sharing discussions in small and large workgroups with a focus on addressing the educational needs of our children. They were able to build upon the work done by a previous group of hard-working volunteers in the CC4E committees.

Volunteering is a hallmark of a vibrant community that all these advisors exemplify.  They worked hard to develop possible solutions to the current issues which the district is now facing as well as plan for the future of education in Steamboat Springs.

On Feb. 11 they shared with the board of education their findings and suggestions, which will be a topic of discussion at upcoming focused meetings that will provide additional feedback opportunities from the community. Additionally, the board of education will continue to gather feedback from the community as it moves closer to making its decisions.

We are grateful for the time our fellow community members have taken from their already busy schedules loaded with work and family obligations to focus on not only the current overcrowded conditions in our schools but also on how the school district will manage continued growth in our area, which continues to be a desirable location for raising families.

We thank each of you and share in your vision of continued excellent educational opportunities for the children of this community.
