What is included in the Master Facility Plan approved by the Board?
The approved Master Facility Plan includes rebuilding E.H. Greene Intermediate School (Grades 5-6) at Aldine Drive and Sycamore Junior High School (Grades 7-8) at Cooper Road. Sycamore High School (Grades 9-12) would undergo a $35 million renovation at Cornell Road. Symmes Elementary (Grades K-4), the district’s oldest elementary school, would be renovated and expanded to accommodate growth and expansion of early childhood opportunities. The remaining three elementary schools (Grades K-4), Blue Ash Elementary, Maple Dale Elementary, and Montgomery Elementary, would receive minimal upgrades. The levy would also partially fund building a $5 million athletic stadium at Sycamore High School. The district has committed to raising a minimum of $2.5 million in private funding to offset the taxpayer’s cost. If the minimum private funding is not achieved, the Board has committed that the $2.5 million included in the bond issue will be used for renovation of the current stadium at Sycamore Junior High school.
