Volunteers needed to serve on Long Range Facility Planning Task Force

Volunteers needed! Help determine the future of our facilities

The district is convening a a Long Range Facilities Planning Task Force and we need your help! We are looking for parents, community members, staff and students to serve on the task force and consider how the district could best utilize its facilities now and into the future.

The deadline to apply is Sunday, March 10, 2019. Fill out the online application.

The task force is expected to meet from May through December 2019. Please note: A few meetings may be scheduled during the summer months.

We want to ensure this group represents the diversity of our entire community. The applications for potential members will be evaluated on a variety of factors, including geographic location and areas of expertise, to ensure a variety of perspectives are considered.

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.
