Building age, structural conditions, spacial concerns and plumbing/electrical issues were heavy factors along with geographic locations of each school in assessing needs and determining the components of the Ten Year Facility Plan.

The Ten Year Facility Plan can be viewed here. It is important to note that this plan is simply a proposal to the public pending a referendum to be held on March 20, 2020. The School District has developed this list to present to the public for ultimate consideration at the ballot box.
