Roosevelt will not be closed or re-purposed.
At the Bismarck School Board meeting on October 9th, in "Board Response to Presentations," the board discussed and unanimously supported giving Roosevelt the same protection previously given to Highland Acres in July - it will not be considered for closure or re-purpose at this time.
We will continue to work as an alliance with the Bismarck Alliance for Neighborhood Schools to shape the long-term vision of the district as it faces the issues still on the table:
- Over-capacity and near capacity schools
- Additional space for BECEP
- Infrastructure and maintenance needs at existing facilities, particularly at Northridge.
Stay tuned on how to remain engaged. We must help the board address the complex facility needs while protecting and preserving our neighborhood schools.
