Master Facility Planning Underway

  • DPS 109 has begun the master facility planning process, which will help us determine the short and long-term needs to make our schools the best educational and working environment possible for students and staff. At this time, the master facility planning committee has met with ARCON & Associates each week to review a number of infrastructure strategies. The district will review the feedback, with preliminary plans to present what was discussed before the Board of Education or in some other sort of public forum in the fall. 

  • Being Methodical and Strategic When Moving Into The Future

  • Here are our goals when planning for the future:

    Create a long-range roadmap for the DPS 109 facilities prioritized by and aligned with the District's educational mission and

    Provide an open opportunity for widespread community and stakeholder engagement.

    Dovetail the Master Facility Plan with the District's ongoing Capital Projects program.

  • As teaching and learning strategies change and evolve, so must our school buildings. The focus of these committee meetings is to develop strategies for each facility over a 30-year period that will best serve the district from an instructional perspective while carefully considering financial and equity implications. The master facility planning committee has studied options spanning from continued maintenance of all buildings as they are presently constructed to moderate additions and improvements at all buildings to full replacement of a number of facilities. An official from Raymond James updated the group on the potential cost of the presented paths and the different ways the district could fund these options. The group provided feedback on the various options presented for the architects & the administration to consider. As we continue to move forward in this planning process we will continue to be financially responsible, intentional, and transparent.
