The Heritage High School Joint Steering Committee is hosting a series of community meetings concerning Heritage High School and the future of secondary education in Lynchburg.  Four meetings will be conducted in December to begin work on issues related to the school.

The first meeting, scheduled for December 2 at Heritage High School, will be the kick-off for the Lynchburg is Listening – Heritage High School and the Future of Secondary Education effort. Attendees will hear about the history of the school and its condition, the process that will be used to identify issues related to Heritage High School and the future of secondary education, and will have an opportunity to comment on the process and the proposed Task Force. Information will also be given about future community meetings and the small group process that will be used to facilitate discussion of the issues. Those in attendance will be given the opportunity to volunteer to work on the Task Force and its sub-committees.

Subsequent meetings will be held at the City’s three middle schools, Sandusky, Dunbar and Linkhorne Middle Schools. Residents who attend will work in small groups to begin the process of identifying and discussing the issues related to Heritage High School and the future of secondary education. There will be an opportunity to volunteer to serve on the Task Force or one of its sub-committees at these meetings as well. All meetings will begin at 6:30 p.m. and end at 8:30 p.m.
