Long Range Facility Planning 2019

Construction

A Long-Range Facilities Planning Task Force is being formed. The group will be made up of community members and staff who will consider the district's facilities needs and make recommendations to the school board on ways to enhance our facilities to better support our students. 

The task force is expected to meet from May through December 2019. Watch for additional information and updates to be shared here throughout the process.

The task force will be asked to review and consider things like:

  • Condition of existing buildings, and future mechanical/operational and safety/security needs.

  • Student programming needs and class size information, and the impact any changes in programming/class size would have on building use and capacity.

  • Our strategic plan (Portrait of a Graduate and World’s Best Workforce), as well as user experience feedback, to ensure available learning spaces match programming needs.

  • Long-term student enrollment projections and trends, and demographic data.

  • Individual building capacity and overall district capacity numbers.

Ultimately, the task force will work to develop a recommendation to present to the school board on how best to:

  • Utilize existing space within the school district, as well as address future growth as a result of demographic and housing patterns;

  • Enhance existing facilities over the next five years based on improving learning opportunities for all students;

  • Identify deferred maintenance projects to ensure the safe and effective operation of existing district facilities for the next ten years.
