Master Planning 2.0 - Community Survey Results

One of the strategic plan goals for the Spring 2018 school year was to update the Facilities Master Plan. A survey was developed to provide the opportunity for our community to give input on prioritizing various facility projects. We are thankful for the over 2,200 participants who took the time to provide input. The results of the survey are HERE. The next steps are to work with the Board to create a long-range plan of prioritized projects with potential funding sources.
