On November 14, 2017 the Arlington School Board adopted the draft charge for the Joint Career Center Working Group (CCWG) charged by both the school board and the Arlington County Board to evaluate the Career Center site, and to recommend how the site may be developed in phases to accommodate additional high school capacity and associated facilities and community amenities.
The study area comprises the large block on which the Career Center, the Fenwick Building, and Patrick Henry Elementary School are located. In order to address and enhance the connection of this block to Columbia Pike, identify opportunities to expand the site by leasing space in adjacent buildings and/or through land acquisition, the study area also includes the blocks between the Career Center and Columbia Pike.
This work will begin in December 2017, with a final report to both boards in August 2018.
More information is available on the Arlington Public School website.
Sarah McKinley has been appointed to this working group to represent Columbia Heights Civic Association. She will prepare reports that will be available on this website. Ron Haddox is her backup/alternate.
