Two separate meetings next will help inform the West Contra Costa Unified School District’s (WCCUSD) efforts to re-design the Richmond High and Kennedy High campuses.
Architects aim to create the plans for the physical redesigns of both campuses by June, according to WCCUSD.
With that in mind, the WCCUSD is hosting a community engagement meeting for the reimagining of the Richmond High campus on Tuesday, Nov. 16, from 6:30 p.m. to 8:30 p.m. at the “mall” in the center of the main building of the campus at 1250 23rd St.
A separate community engagement meeting for the reimagining of the Kennedy High campus will take place on Thursday, Nov. 18, from 6:30 p.m. to 8:30 p.m. at the “K” in the central courtyard of the campus, which is located at 4300 Cutting Blvd.
Both meetings are a “first step” in a process to redesign the campuses and will include an overview of the process, along with breakout groups enabling attendees to provide feedback on what they’d like to see, according to WCCUSD.
“The steering committee that will guide the process will be chosen after this first meeting,” the district said. “Anyone interested in serving on a steering committee should be in attendance at the first meeting.”
All interested community members are invited to attend the meetings, but especially parents, students, educators, staff at each of the schools, as well as members of related elementary and middle school communities.
Attendees must have proof of vaccination or a recent negative COVID test to engage in the meetings.
