Background - Phase I
In 2012, a 19-member work group was established and was comprised of members from the community, ACPS School Board, City Council, Campagna Center, and the PTA Council, supported by ACPS and City staff. The work group met quarterly to explore the major issues impacting public school facilities over the long term and to guide staff in the development of a Long Range Educational Facilities Plan for consideration by the School Board and City Council.
