State of Cove Schools Presentation

When the Small Area Planning process for the Cove kicked off in March, local residents were asked to discuss local Strengths, Weaknesses, Opportunities, and Threats. Among other observations, local schools were a hot topic of discussion during the interactive table exercises! Approximately 85% of the Cove population lives within Huntsville City limits, and are thus zoned for Huntsville City Schools.

In recognition of local schools as a major topic of interest and local strength, GrowCove leaders felt there was an opportunity for more in-depth discussion and invited Cove resident and Huntsville City Schools Superintendent Christie Finley to give an informational presentation that would be of special interest to the Cove community. How is our city growing, what is the status of local schools (enrollment, finances, consent order, etc), and what is the Strategic Plan for the school district and Cove geography?

Ms. Finley will be giving a presentation on these topics and more on Monday, July 29th at 5:30pm at Goldsmith-Schiffman Elementary School in the A/V room. Her presentation will be tailored to the questions and concerns of Cove residents.

What questions do you have? Please email [email protected]  or fill out the survey form below by July 19th:

The capacity of the A/V room is ~150 people. Please RSVP via EventBrite if you plan to attend. Walk-ins will be admitted on a space-available basis.
