public is encouraged to attend either one of two interactive work session
designed to continue discussion regarding Cabell County Schools’ Comprehensive
Education Facilities Plan (CEFP). These CEFP Community Dialogue meetings are
planned for Thursday, January 23 from
4:00 to 6:00 PM at Cabell Midland High School, and then from
7:00 to 9:00 PM at Huntington High School.
purpose of these work sessions is to obtain valuable community input about the
potential scenarios presented. These
scenarios were developed by the CEFP Steering Committee in collaboration with the
district’s administration and the planning firm, Cooperative Strategies.
County Schools has retained Cooperative Strategies to aid in the development of
the CEFP. The process includes gathering and organizing data and facilitating
the community engagement process. In addition, a steering committee, that
includes community representatives, has examined the district’s needs and
provided important feedback on the development of the plan. The project team
will analyze the technical data and the outcomes of the community engagement
effort to help develop a CEFP for Cabell County Schools.
CEFP will be completed by the Spring of 2020. The data used to develop
scenarios included a state-provided facility conditions report which assisted
in determining which buildings were candidates for replacement, renovation, or
modernization. This data was then overlaid with district programming,
transportation, demographic and enrollment data to identify a long-range, comprehensive,
and strategic approach as to the use and occupancy of district facilities. Updates on the CEFP process can be found on the Cabell
County Schools website under the “About” section, or at the following link: http://www.dejongrichter.com/cabellcountywv/
