You're Invited! Master Facility Planning Community Engagement
Sycamore Community Schools is exploring ways to enhance our 21st-century learning environments for current students and future generations. The district is developing a Master Facility Plan that includes feedback from students, families, staff, and the community.
The district is holding two open Community Engagement Sessions to seek input from our community:
April 24, 2018 6:30-8:00 p.m.
May 1, 2018 6:30-8:00 p.m.
Both sessions will be held at E.H. Greene Intermediate School and are free and open to the public. The session will include a 60-minute presentation on the state of our facilities. Please bring a smartphone, tablet, or any device that connects to wifi to participate in a survey at the end of the session.
More than a year ago, the district embarked on a multi-phase process that includes assessment, community engagement, and educational visioning. Phase I began with a district-wide facilities assessment. A team of experts was brought in to evaluate all buildings, examining the architectural and structural condition as well as the mechanical, electrical, and plumbing.
During the Fall of 2017, the Board of Education hired SHP Leading Design to assist Sycamore Schools in developing a conceptual master plan that is cost-effective and meets the long-term educational needs of the district. The district began receiving input from students, staff, and families in January 2018 as Phase II of the process. The district hopes to have a number of Master Plan options by Summer 2018 with a Concept Test in place by early Fall. For more information, visit goav.es/masterfacilityplanning.
Thank you for participating in this very important conversation about our students and our future at Sycamore Community Schools.
