Virtual Community Meetings Planned to Update Public on New School Construction

Aerial views of new schools planned for construction will be shown at Virtual Community Meeting.

The Virgin Islands Department of Education’s (DOE) New Schools Advisory Board will host a second round of community meetings to update the public on recent developments in the department’s plan to build new public schools in the territory.

The meetings will be streamed live on the DOE’s Facebook page and will re-air on the Government Access Channel. Interactive, online tools will be used to conduct polls and capture attendee feedback during and after each session.

Last October, the New Schools Advisory Board hosted a first round of community meetings. The board is comprised of DOE employees, elected and government officials, students, local business owners and residents.
