A committee of about 40 people may decide, or at least guide, how the Butler Area School District reorganizes its buildings.
Superintendent Brian White outlined Monday night a plan to form a large, informal committee of parents, government officials, teachers and community members. The group would meet four times this fall to try and winnow the four proposed options for a restructuring of the district down to just one or two.
“Schools are substantial investments by the community,” White said. “They're an enormous capital investment by the community. We need to bring people together to have some voice in this.”
The committee won't hold public meetings, White said, and instead will report back to the school board.
