Our district is currently in partnership with Bloomington Public Schools for shared community education programming and early childhood programs. While the partnership between Bloomington Public Schools and Richfield Public Schools has been effective for many years, given the changing needs of the Richfield community and the expansion of early childhood programming, separation from the joint district shared programming model was recommended by the administration and approved by our school board last night. The joint partnership agreement bylaws require that members give a 6-month notice, due on December 30th 2016, before withdrawing from the partnership.
We have worked diligently to ensure that there will be retention and expansion of all programming in early childhood and community education. Our new program will allow us to offer the same high quality programming, while retaining our students, children and families within the Richfield Public Schools. We anticipate our new program will deepen our relationship to the community and improve our ability to serve the students and families of the city of RIchfield. We thank our partners from Bloomington for our long term relationship that has been an excellent collaboration.
I am proud to announce that, as of July 1, 2017 we will launch Richfield Community Education and Early Learning Programming. For those wanting further information, I am attaching the PowerPoint presentation from the board meeting last night.
Thanks and enjoy the day,
Richfield Public Schools
