Plan Proposal Basics

  • The plan is comprehensive and addresses all currently identified needs.

  • The plan has been developed with a defined process:  

1.  Needs were identified by staff.                                                                                                                  
2.  Needs were affirmed in a facility study by an architectural firm.                                                           
3.  Input was gathered from our staff and community.
4.  A feasibility committee met regularly to formulate a plan based on input.                                    
5.  Sharing of the plan with the community.                                                                                    
6.  Board approved the plan with staff and community endorsement.                                            
7.  Continue to share plan.              
8.  February 3, 2015 special election.                    
9.  If a “yes” vote, partial completion fall 2017.

  • The plan addresses all three buildings and sites.

  • The plan focuses on the following priorities: school safety and security, comprehensive plan, additional and improved educational space, technology upgrades, building maintenance upgrades, grade alignment (with the addition of a middle school concept), financing of the project, competitive extra-curricular facilities, and community event space.

  • The cost of the project is $29.9 million.  The cost is shared on all property types.  Impact for a home valued at $100,000 is $121 a year or $10 a month.  For your personal impact information, contact Ehlers and Associates at 1-800-552-1171 or mnschools@ehlers-inc.com
