Derby Public Schools, in partnership with the Chamber of Commerce, is participating in Food Friday on a Thursday on March 2nd to benefit Derby Community Family Services (who runs the Derby Food Bank). Last year, we collected nearly 6,000 food items! This year our goal as a district is to reach 7,000 items. This is an exciting opportunity as we get to see our district working all together on this project.CLICK HERE to learn more about how to participate.
Process for Success Update
Community and staff input meetings to discuss the Facilities Master Plan proposal during the months of January and February, along with an online feedback form, provided valuable feedback on the Facilities Master Plan proposal. The Process for Success (PFS) committee reconvened on February 9 to begin carefully reviewing all feedback and to establish the next steps in both short-term and long-term facilities planning within our district. The PFS has asked that sub-committees reconvene to determine if there are additional options and do further research to ensure a Facilities Master Plan proposal is developed that reflects community needs while being a good steward of taxpayer’s dollars.
