Please join us to share your thoughts on how Forest Grove School District's school facilites can support the educational needs of ALL students. Forest Grove School District is in the early stages of planning for a possible school construction bond in fall of 2022. The District is organizing a series of dialogue sessions to develop a comprehensive understanding of how community members experience the District’s school facilities. Input from these groups will be shared with the future Bond Development Committee to inform the Guiding Principles for the bond program.
