This Thursday, Dec. 10, the Bellingham School Board will hear a report on the "Management Action Plan for Reopening Lowell Elementary School."
In previous news updates, the district has also said that the status of Whatcom Middle School, which burned in early November, would be discussed before the end of 2009. Officials are awaiting information on how badly damaged the building is, and also discussing the placement of students -- currently at dispersed among four schools. From the district's update page on Whatcom Middle School, "Q: When will a decision be made about whether Whatcom Middle School students and staff will stay at their current relocation sites for the remainder of the 2009-10 school year?
A. Superintendent Sherrie Brown will make a decision based upon input from a variety of stakeholder representatives and communicate that decision before winter break."
