What is a Facilities Master Plan?
A Facilities Master Plan is an ongoing process that results in the creation of a comprehensive living document. Both the process and document are designed to ensure that the school and community based plan is created through a consensus of participants in the facilities master planning process. The purpose of the plan is to develop and communicate an efficient process to change the District's School Facilities to better accommodate and support its current and future educational programs on a regularly updated basis. It will serve as a guide for assessing the need for facility improvements and capital investments to implement them. This Facilities Master Plan will determine the scope of repairs, modernization, upgrades, and/or new construction needed to serve the current and future school facilities needs of the community. It will also assess the variety of Federal, State, and local funding sources and financing options available to the District and will import a prudent view of the scope of projects that may reasonably be accomplished with available funds.
A Steering Committee has been formed to provide feedback and work with the consultant team to develop district-wide priorities to guide the planning process. The Steering Committee is comprised of different stakeholder groups including:
In addition, a series of Community Workshops have been scheduled to engage our parents and community. The next Community Workshop will be held on May 18, 2017 from 6:30-8:00 pm at the District Service Center Boardroom, located at 511 S. Orchard Ave. If you have any questions, please contact Heather Rantala at (707) 472-5012.
