Community Input Forum

Owen J. Roberts Community Input Forum to be held November 1, 2018

Owen J. Roberts School District invites public input in regards to shaping the future. The district is in the process of gathering information through a feasibility study which will analyze and explore various ideas to accommodate future enrollment, utilize resources, assure safe learning environments, and provide for quality educational practice. An important part of this process is to listen to input from all stakeholders.

Owen J. Roberts Board of School Directors has approved Marotta Main Architects to lead the study. A steering committee made up of school board members, school personnel, township supervisors, parents and other residents will begin the process of gathering and sorting community input. The team is not starting with preconceived notions except to recognize all possibilities to conserve physical, financial, and human resources. The study should reflect ideas for a long-term plan that will result in creative use of facilities that make sense for the community and provide for the safety and educational needs of students.

The steering committee hopes to draw feedback from as many residents, businesses and community-based organizations as possible. A Community Input Forum will be held on November 1, 2018, 6:00 – 7:30 p.m., in the High School Auditorium, then Cafeteria , 981 Ridge Road. The meeting will offer an opportunity for all stakeholders to learn and work face-to-face in small group settings. All community members are invited to provide feedback and offer ideas so that recommendations may be made to the Board of School Directors at the end of the feasibility study process.

Owen J. Roberts residents can follow the process of the feasibility study and reference relevant articles on the district website. Feedback is welcomed via email at
