Master Facilities Plan Historical Summary

In 2011, the board of education adopted a Master Facilities Plan (MFP). Its purpose was to guide the construction and renovation needed to support the district’s educational mission. Phase I of that plan was largely completed in 2012.

In December 2014, the board charged a steering committee composed of parents/guardians, community members, teachers, board members and administrators with the task of evaluating and updating the original MFP in response to the district’s educational mission. 

Specific goals for the MFP update included the following: 
  • Update the priorities and clarify the components of the existing MFP, with consideration given to any changes in curriculum, enrollment or other parameters since the completion of the plan in 2011. 
  • Provide an opportunity for widespread community and stakeholder engagement.
  • Clearly articulate facility-related deficiencies in the areas of academic program support, infrastructure, code compliance, security and safety, operations efficiency and community-use opportunities.
  • Identify a list of MFP components prioritized by, and aligned with, the district’s educational mission.
  • Dovetail the prioritized component list from the MFP with the district's 10-year capital projects program by identifying discrete, buildable projects, their relation to other MFP components, and any associated phasing.

Nearly 140 students, parents/guardians, community members, staff and board members participated in more than 95 meetings across 15 focus areas for eight months that resulted in the creation of the MFP and functional team reports. 

In September 2015, the steering committee presented the board with a final report that integrated all of the functional team reports. The board then began prioritizing projects based on the recommendations from the steering committee. 

The board approved the updated MFP in January 2016, and ultimately decided to go with the "Scenario E" option of those that were presented.
