The Santa Monica-Malibu Unified School District board has scheduled a forum Saturday, March 28th, to discuss the proposed facilities policy.

The meeting is scheduled from 9 a.m. to noon in the John Adams Middle School cafeteria, 2425 16th St., Santa Monica.

The purpose of the forum is to gather input from parents and other community members that will be used in the development of a new policy to govern the use of district facilities.

The decision to convene the meeting was made in response to questions about the appropriate use of district facilities that emerged relative to a scheduled fundraising event for Edison School that featured comedian Carlos Mencia and was ultimately cancelled, superintendent Tim Cuneo said.

The forum will include a panel discussion featuring several community leaders, who will share their perspectives on the topic, and will provide opportunities for forum attendees to contribute to the discussion.

The meeting is open to the public, and parents and interested community members are encouraged to participate.
