Long Range Facilities Plan

  • One of the goals in the District's Comprehensive Plan is to "Establish a system that fully ensures the use of data to effectively justify the allocation and alignment of instructional and infrastructural priorities."  The first step in implementation of this goal occurred in the spring 2017, when the District put out a request for proposals to complete a comprehensive long range capital improvement planning process and to prepare a District Long Range Facilities Plan (LRFP) to include each District site.

    The last Long Range Facilities Plan for the District was completed 16 years ago.  

    Ten proposals were submitted and after careful consideration and evaluation, EI Associates was engaged by the District to prepare the plan.  The process will take approximately five months.  To view the schedule provided by EI, click here.

    In an effort to keep the community apprised and engaged we created this webpage in September and will be updating it as new information becomes available.  Please check back regularly!

    September 2019
    The Hoover Elementary Renovation Project, the District Administration Offices and College Park Tennis Courts were advertised for public bid at the beginning of August. Bids were received on Wednesday, September 4 and were followed by a Public Bid opening held at the Sutliff Family Auditorium. On Friday, September 6, at a joint meeting of the Buildings and Grounds and Budget and Finance/Personnel Committees, the decision was made to reject the bids due to total project costs exceeding estimated costs by approximately $3,000,000.  This affects decisions related to all future projects. The Board and District Administration have begun working to re-prioritize infrastructure needs at Hoover Elementary and the Middle School/High School to align with the Board approved financing plan.
