G LEN R IDGE P UBLIC S CHOOLS CONSTRUCTION PROJECT UPDATE FOREST AND LINDEN AVENUE SCHOOLS JULY 23, 2012
INTRODUCTION After nearly a year of study and discussion, the Board of Education has decided to launch major capital improvement projects at Forest Avenue School and Linden Avenue School. These projects are designed to provide our educators with the additional space and flexibility necessary to meet the evolving educational needs of our youngest students. Through prudent management of the districts resources, we have a one-time opportunity to make these improvements without incurring debt. We could not undertake this initiative without the help and support of the community. We look forward to working and communicating with staff, parents and neighbors as we move forward.
