A neighborhood meeting will be held from 6:30-8:30 p.m. Thursday, Nov. 15 to discuss changes at the Taft Education Center.
The event will be held at Taft - home of the new Digital Learning Center, an alternative high school that opened this year offering students an online-based curriculum with support from academic case managers.
The meeting on Thursday will give residents in the Dales neighborhood a chance to meet their neighbors, learn about recent changes at the center and voice any concerns they may have.
The meeting will include Ferndale Public Schools Superintendent Gary Meier, Ferndale Police Chief Tim Collins and Ferndale school board members.
Residents have voiced concerns about crime at the center, including an incident in October where several students were arrested after a fight outside the school. A gang-related fight was reported the following week.
There will also be discussion of a possible neighborhood group forming for the neighborhood. Visit the Facebook event page here for more information on Thursday evening's meeting.
