Frequently Asked Questions


As Cooperative Strategies is reviewing the proposed changes to our Schools of Choice system, they are taking into consideration the needs of all students, including those with IEPs and 504 Plans. Most students with IEPs or 504s can be served in any of our elementary schools. As Cooperative Strategies further develops potential changes to our student assignment process, they will continue to ensure all students’ needs are met.

Focus Groups

The focus group sessions are intended to supplement the online survey shared last month. The sessions to date have included between 10 to 20 participants who pre-registered online. The intent is to keep the focus groups small in order to have productive discussions and allow every participant to share. Each meeting is designed to include an introduction and a brief presentation that clarifies some frequently asked questions. The rest of the session is for open discussion and Q&A. The feedback from the focus groups will be summarized and shared with the Board of Education.

Community Open Houses

If you prefer not to register for a focus group but would like to stop by one of our “Open House” listening sessions, you are invited to join us on October 17, 2022 at Carrie Busey Elementary School beginning at 7:30 p.m. or on October 18, 2022 at Garden Hills Academy beginning at 7 p.m.

Please remember: feedback is being collected via the online survey, focus groups, and in-person open houses. All feedback is considered with the same weight regardless of collection medium.
