“The next part of this is going out into the community and sitting down and maybe even going door to door, with the people that have kids that would go to potentially this school or just folks that live in the neighborhood and ask them what do they want? What would they like to see there?” he said.

The proposed school would serve children from infancy through 3rd grade, and may find a home at the Old Wesson  School on South Meridian Road. The steering committee’s next meeting will be held November 9th.
