June 9 APS Community Forum to Discuss Site Selection for New South Arlington Elementary School The Arlington School Board invites the community to a public forum on Tue, June 9, at 7 pm at the Arlington Career Center. The focus of the meeting will be to discuss the process to select a site for a new neighborhood elementary school in South Arlington. This community forum will provide background information on the issue and explain the South Arlington Working Group being organized to help guide the decision-making process. Every South Arlington PTA, civic association and community organization involved will have a representative and an alternate on this working group. Individuals who are interested in serving as a representative for their organization should contact their PTA or civic association leadership. The charge for this working group is to assist the School Board in determining the site for a new 725-seat neighborhood elementary school by December 2015, preferably for completion by September 2019. The group will work with staff to evaluate and analyze site options for the new school. Additional community forums and other tools will be used to engage the public throughout the process. Please plan to attend this kickoff community forum on June 9 at the Career Center at 7 pm.
