Master Plan Committee Summary and Considerations

New construction needs

           • Elementary 13 and Elementary 14

            • Middle School 5

            • Additions to two of our high schools

Why are these new schools and additions needed?

• We have added about 2,400 students over the past 10 years and another 3,000 are expected over the next 10 years.

• By 2022, 17 of our 20 schools will be over capacity. At the elementary level, we will be more than 1,300 students over capacity, the equivalent of two elementary schools.

• The Emerald Campus will help the District avoid the $75-$90-million cost of building a fourth high school and will free up space at our existing three high schools by pulling students to Emerald Campus.

• The District already owns land for the new elementary schools and fifth middle school in Jerome Village and on Bright Road

Maintenance and upkeep at existing facilities

• Approximately $95-million worth of upgrades, maintenance, and equipment replacement is needed at existing facilities.

Recommendations Made to the Board Education

• 2019-20 Centralized Preschool open (would relocate central office staff to Emerald Campus 4th Floor. Due to zoning, the 4th floor cannot be used for students)

• 2020-21 Elementary 13 and Elementary 14 open

• 2021-22 Middle School 5 opens 

• 2022-23 High school additions open

            • Keep kindergarten programming as is with students receiving extended services as needed

            • No new millage bond issue will fund these schools

            • Permanent Improvement (PI) Levy for existing facilities

            • Operating levy, Bond Issue, PI = One ask

            • Recommend the Board consider a November of 2018 ballot issue

Next Steps

             • The Board of Education will consider the committee’s recommendations during the winter/spring of 2018.
