WOOTTON RENOVATION DISCUSSION TONIGHT!


Wootton HS was due to be the next high school to be renovated beginning in summer 2019. But there was a change in MCPS policy, and no new renovations will occur Countywide until further facility assessments are completed for all schools. Tonight, Thursday, November 8th, your Wootton cluster coordinator will be delivering the cluster testimony at the Board of Education hearing for the Capital Improvement Program (CIP). We need a strong turnout to show the Board of Education how important the Wootton modernization is to our community. Let's arrive at 5:00 p.m. tonight (note time change!) to fill the hearing room with Wootton Cluster families. Please wear Wootton gear or wear red and we will provide you with signs.
