Dunlap School, Peoria City Officials Hold First of Many Meetings

Hoping to increase communication
PEORIA - Since about 70 percent of Dunlap's students have Peoria addresses, the district and city officials are planning to see a lot more of each other.

Dunlap's superintendent and board members met with the City of Peoria officials Tuesday. Both parties say it's important that the city and schools communicate on issues that impact them both.

CUSD #323 Superintendent Jay Marino said his district welcomes 150 to 200 new students every year, partially because of Peoria’s expansion to the north.

Peoria's mayor, Jim Ardis said these meetings will keep everyone in the loop. He said constant updates will help both sides plan for the future.

"We just want to make sure when they're talking about thinks that have an impact on Peoria, like you know, property taxes and so on that they understand all the information and there's things they want to bring to our attention as well," Ardis said.

"When we have a greater awareness of potential growth, development and the plans for the Northern Part of Peoria that services Dunlap schools we'll be in a better position to do more long term strategic planning," Marino said.

The city officials already have these kinds of meetings with District 150.
