High School Transition Forums for BHS Parents Resume
The final sessions for each current grade level affected by next year's merger of Andover and Lahser high schools begin tonight.
Though second semester just got under way in the Bloomfield Hills Schools, there's already a significant level of focus from parents, teachers and administrators on the fall of 2013 and the official start of the new Bloomfield Hills High School. And understandably so.
The district's transition plan has the current Lahser High School housing students in 10th through 12th grades in what will become known as the 'main' Bloomfield Hills High School campus. Ninth grade students will be at Hickory Grove, or the 9th grade campus.
To help parents navigate the transition to the new high school facility, which won’t be completed on the current Andover site until 2015, the Bloomfield Hills Schools scheduled a series of forums broken up by student grade level to make each more manageable and effective in addressing parent’s concerns, officials said. The first wave of forums occurred in November.
Each of the high school transition meetings begin at 7 p.m.
8th Grade Parents (Doyle Center)
- Monday, Feb. 4
9th Grade Parents (Lahser Auditorium)
- Monday, Feb. 11
10th Grade Parents (Lahser Auditorium)
- Monday, Feb. 18
11th Grade Parents (Lahser Auditorium)
- Tuesday, Feb. 26
The first forums yielded a lot of feedback and meaningful discussion, Superintendent Rob Glass said.
Chief among those concerns was the district's transportation plan for managing single high school on multiple campuses. Descriptions of the plan and a district survey for parents is now live on the district website.
What concerns do you have that should be addressed at these meetings?
