Brookfield Community Learning Center Survey
Dear Community Member,
The Brookfield Local School District is in the planning phase of developing and potentially building a Community Learning Center (CLC). A CLC is a school or facility that serves as a community hub, utilizing space during extended hours, on weekends, and through the summer to provide additional academic support, health
resources, social services, arts programming, and civic and cultural opportunities to students, their families
and the community. This opportunity will be funded by grant monies and/or private donations. There will be no
additional cost to local taxpayers.
Schools and the communities they serve are closely linked. Seldom does one succeed without the success of the other. This is why your input on the project is so vital to our planning. Please take a few moments to complete a brief survey by scanning the QR code on the right. Your insight will be invaluable as we best determine how this asset can provide the necessary services our community needs. Thank you!
Toby Gibson, Superintendent BLSD
