Wednesday, June 17, I spoke to the Mayor's Neighborhood Advisory Commission on behalf of Neighborhood Schools Coalition. The commission has representatives from all of Bellingham's neighborhood associations.
Many of the attendees were unaware that in addition to Lowell, Larrabee and Columbia remain on the chopping block. The meeting was very positive, and the group unanimously voiced its support for the school district to fund and operate all of its existing neighborhood schools.
These representatives will take this information back to their neighborhood associations, so all of the constituents in Bellingham School District can be aware and get involved.
Thank you Mayor's Neighborhood Advisory Commission for your time and support!
