School Boards Moving Forward with Establishing Another High School

At their June school board meetings, the Pioneer and Hood Canal Board of Directors directed Superintendents Marty Brewer and Shawn Batstone to prepare their districts for establishing a cooperative high school. The boards’ decisions were based on feedback and input from a series of community forums and an on-line survey. Of the 883 responses collected, 72% supported this option.

The districts will meet with administration from Shelton School District and the Office of Superintendent of Public Instruction (OSPI) to share the results of the community input and gather feedback in order to provide recommendations to their boards regarding appropriate next steps.
