Community hosts town hall meeting on Corbett schools

Members of the public will convene for a town hall meeting regarding Corbett schools at 4 p.m. Saturday, Jan. 25, at the Corbett Grange Hall.

The meeting comes after a Jan. 11 meeting between the Northeast Multnomah County Community Association and the Corbett School Board was called off by the board president.

Parent and community member Marnie Freeman organized the alternative forum, which some members of NEMCCA will attend.

“This is an opportunity for people to come together and express their vision for Corbett schools,” wrote Gary Purvine, a NEMCCA leader, parent and community member.

Purvine said participants will have three minutes to voice opinions and to hear the opinion of friends and neighbors.

Afterward, there will be a community potluck, with attendees bringing dishes based on their last names.
