The Board approved a Ten Year Facilities Master Plan on January 27, 2015. The plan consists of large repair/maintenance projects, including roofing and mechanical replacements, as well as proposed capital projects such as new construction. The initial Master Plan was built on feedback from a variety of stakeholders in our District and a comprehensive facilities condition assessment by Alpha Facilities Solutions in 2014. The Facilities Master Plan is updated on an annual basis by facilities staff assessments and ongoing feedback from each site’s administration.
