Long Range Planning

  Long Range Planning

Long Range Planning began in winter 2011 with community engagement sessions.  At the time, the district included a mix of grade configurations including some K-6 and K-8 schools.  It was determined that there wasn't a strong preference district-wide about K-6 or K-8 schools. 

The planning process was led by a steering committee.  A community summit, community engagement meetings and committee meetings were held throughout 2012-2013. 

There were many presentations and discussions about long range planning at board of education meetings.  All the board conversations and work sessions were held in public. 

The board of education charged the long range planning committee with exploring the possibility of creating all K-8 schools.  Many conversations about this took place. 

The architects and construction teams completed a study on this option, which was presented to the Board of Education.  It was determined that all of the schools could not be converted to K-8 schools.

The board of education requested a comparative study of various grade configurations including all K-8s, K-5 and 6-8 hybrid.  They narrowed the selection down to these three.

Since K-8s were not feasible and the hybrid model promotes inequities, the board asked for more information on the K-5, 6-8 and 9-12 models.  They explored this option with a focus on equity, opportunity, fair access, standardizing grade configurations for all students, efficiencies, capacity and the immediate facility needs.  All of these discussions took place at public meetings.

After much discussion, the board selected the K-5, 6-8 and 9-12 configuration and approved it with a board vote.
