MORE ABOUT FACILITIES PLANNING

Recently, the district completed a Master Planning process that reviewed district facilities with an eye to the next 10 years. The process began in 2015 and culminated with Board approval of the plan in the spring of 2016. gLAs Architects led the review and planning, with support from structural engineers. Community members, teachers, students and others who use the buildings were invited to participate in the planning process. The community also participated in Open Houses and public meetings.
