Pella Christian Schools will hold their first Town Hall meeting on Tuesday, Feb. 18 from 12-1 p.m. and 7-8 p.m. as part of their integration process with the Center for the Advancement of Christian Education (CACE).
After a brief description of the multi-year nature of the integration process, a panel representing CACE and the PCGS/PCHS boards and administration will take questions and listen to feedback from the audience during the meeting, according to a statement released by the school district on Feb. 12. This is the first of several Town Hall meetings that will be held to engage the community in the integration process.
“Our goal is to make this a transparent and open process that considers the diverse perspectives of our community,” the statement reads.
In a Feb. 5 statement, it was shared that the district would announce two additional leadership team members on Feb. 12. However, the district will be withholding the announcement for a future briefing.
“We recognize that there are some within our community who see the further integration of PCGS and PCHS as a positive progression and others that have questions and concerns,” the statement reads. "The intent of the Town Hall meetings is to welcome the Pella Christian Schools and surrounding Christian school communities into discussions about how integration and collaboration can strengthen the impact of Christian schooling in our area.”
