      Possible changes for Gwinn Schools

      Gwinn Area Community Schools is considering a new K through 12 building.

      The School Board's Building and Site Committee had a special meeting today to discuss their strategic plan for the 2014-2015 school year.

      Plans included adding on to the middle and high school building, to make a K through 12 complex.

      Committee members said this would allow all of the children to be centrally located.

      Sawyer Elementary would then be possibly turned into an alternative school for grades seven through 12, as well as a place to house adult education.

      "We'll be reviewing our strategic plan, getting community input, sharing ideas. We'll also be talking about one K-12 complex and an alternative school," said Chairperson Cindy Filizetti.

      The committee wants to know the public's opinion.

      They're planning to hold a presentation meeting on Wednesday, June 11 at 7p.m. in the high school cafeteria.

      However, the meeting will not be completely about the building complex.

      The committee would like to keep the strategic plan as the focus.
