Dear Coventry Public Schools Community Member,
As you may know, Coventry Public Schools has made great strides and progress over the past decade. The list of accomplishments is outstanding. Our priority to provide the same opportunities for our students, as other students across the state and country, has always been at the forefront. However, the landscape of education is evolving quickly, as are the needs of our students. As an educational institution, we must anticipate what the future of education will look like in order to support these ever-changing needs. Adjustments will need to be considered that are necessary to ensure the children of Coventry continue to be prepared and positioned for success once they are outside of our school walls.
It is with this email, I announce that Coventry Public Schools will be embarking on a journey to evaluate our current facilities and develop a long-term plan to support our students and to maximize efficiencies. This task will require thoughtful preparation grounded in research that considers, as a district, what our building needs will be for the future. This multi-year initiative will require the support of the community and would not be complete without obtaining input from internal and external stakeholders. The more community involvement we have, the more fruitful the outcome. With that, I ask, would you be willing to volunteer your time and/or expertise as we begin this journey to reimagine what our school facilities will look like?
We are in the process of scheduling an information session and will be sending those details out in the coming weeks. I hope you will consider attending this session and learning about how your involvement can shape the future of Coventry Public Schools. I would also encourage you to share this information with any community member you believe would be interested in being part of this exciting transformation.
