Students, Parents, Grandparents, Staff members, and Community Members,
The Bedford Area School District continues to plan for the future of Bedford High School. A large building project is often an important milestone in the history of a School District. Oftentimes, all school district stakeholders experience a variety of feelings about the project. Many times, those feelings are directly connected to their individual experiences. For example, if you are a student at the high school on a day the air conditioning or heat is not operating properly, you want a project. If you are a grandparent who struggles to enter the building or sit in the bleachers, you see merit in the project. If you are a parent who attends athletic events at other facilities, you may experience a longing for something better at BHS. If you are a community member without any contact with the building, additional information about the project may be helpful.
As Administrators in the Bedford Area School District, we receive numerous questions from all community members. Some of the questions are, when is the project going to start? What is in the project? Are we getting a new field or a new gym? Why is the project really necessary, and what is needed? What can we do to help with the project?
Your comments are important! Your feedback is needed!
In response to the growing questions, the administration scheduled a meeting on April 20th at 6 PM in the auditorium at Bedford High School to discuss the building project. Additionally, the district will offer tours of Bedford High School before the meeting. These tours will commence at 4:30 PM at the main office at Bedford High School.
In addition to the building tours, this meeting will provide a history of the project, current challenges, plans for the future building project, and a question-and-answer session. The administration will provide recommendations to the community and listen to public feedback.
Again, a building project is truly a milestone in the history of a school district. Since such projects only occur every 30 years, we want to make sound decisions that future students, parents, grandparents, and community members will enjoy and experience with pride. Your attendance at this meeting is paramount to the public feedback process. If you remain silent, it is difficult to gauge the thoughts and feelings of the public. Whereas a resounding message would help move the project in some direction. Please schedule the meeting on your calendar and plan to attend.
Sincerely ask you to attend,
Bedford Area School District Administration
