Invitation to Participate in the 

Dover High School-Career Technical Center Visioning Sessions

“Educational Visioning is a process which results in a comprehensive long-term planning tool for a school or district. It is the cornerstone of all educational planning. It directs deep, probing work which establishes clear statements about the most appropriate and effective educational practices, school organizational structure and concepts for the school facilities needed to support them.” – Frank Locker

A Joint Building Committee (JBC) was created last spring to oversee a rebuild and/or renovation of the Dover High School – Career Technical Center. The JBC is looking for community members to participate in six(6) Visioning Sessions with Educational Consultant Frank Locker to be held at the high school on:

  • Saturday, 1/31         8am-1pm
