The Peoria Unified School District values input from district stakeholders and is forming a Superintendent’s Facility Utilization Committee to identify district sites that may need further study in consideration of repurposing or alternative use.

Individuals with the Peoria School District’s best interest at heart, who are skilled at analyzing complex data and have strong critical thinking and collaboration skills, may be a good fit for this committee. This committee will be comprised of 11-13 employees, community members and parents representing various areas of the school district and community.

The work of the committee will begin in December 2020 and will continue throughout the remainder of the 2020-21 school year, meeting from approximately 4 – 6 p.m., bi-monthly. A complete schedule of meetings dates is forthcoming.

Those interested in serving on the Facility Utilization Committee should complete the online form by November 13.

Peoria Unified School District is nestled in the Northwest Valley of Peoria, Arizona and is home to 42 stellar public schools that are unique and created to fit the needs of all students.

Peoria Unified is the choice district for more than 37,000 students and 4,000 staff, serving as one of the largest employers in the West Valley and one of the largest unified school districts in Arizona.

The district has signature programs spread out between 34 kindergarten through eighth-grade elementary schools and eight high schools that excel in academics, arts, athletics and Career and Technical Education programs.

The Strategic Plan outlines a laser focus on four key areas: Student Success, Safety and Well-Being, Stewardship of Community Resources and Community Connection.

Above all, Peoria Unified is committed to transparency, parent involvement and ensuring that “Every Student, Every Day is Prepared to Shape Tomorrow.”
