OVUU Task Force Community Working Group Recap
The OVUU Board appointed Planning Task Force (Task Force) hosted a very engaged Community Input Working Group on Monday, April 29th. The goal of the meeting was to receive community input on initial plan elements that outline proactive solutions for the district focused on the next 2-5-10 years to account for a series of triggers that may impact change (declining enrollment, legislation, facilities maintenance, etc.).
The initial plan was developed over 15 months, 25 meetings, thorough review of 92 pages of district data and ongoing community input.
