 Demographics

CGCSC Enrollment Projections


Enrollment & Demographics

  • Study Data Considered

    • 2002 (Boyd - ISU)

    • 2004 (Boyd - ISU)

    • 2006 (IBRC - IU) 04-07-2006

    • 2007(CGCSC) 11-07-2007


District Enrollment


High School Enrollment

CGCSC Projections


Enrollment & Demographics

  • The Board endorses these enrollment projections for long-term planning purposes.

  • The proposed Facility Plan is based on enrollments projected through 2026-27:

    • Elementary4,614

    • Middle school2,479

    • High School3,190

    • TOTAL 10,284


 Proposed Elementary Plan

  • Committed to providing the best facilities and academic programs for our students.


EFFICIENCY

  • Getting maximum use of facility for minimum expense

  • Considerations

    • Energy

    • Staffing

    • Transportation

  • State Expectations

  • Trends across Indiana


Efficiency – Elementary Schools

  • We intend to provide outstanding academic programs.

  • Recommended school size for maximum efficiency:

    • Elementary - 650-750 pupils per school

    • Middle School - 1000-1200 pupils per school


Analysis of our Elementary Schools

Four Existing Buildings Can Meet Efficiency Requirements:

  • Maple Grove, Pleasant Grove, and Sugar Grove can already accommodate 650-750 students.

  • Center Grove requires addition/renovation to accommodate 650-750.


Analysis of our Elementary Schools

  • West Grove

    • Built in 1967

    • 42,724 square feet

    • 12.5 acres

    • Septic system

  • North Grove

    • Built in 1965

    • 46,190 square feet

    • 11.26 acres

Two Existing Buildings Do Not Meet Efficiency Requirements:

It is not feasible to renovate or add on to either school to accommodate 650-750 students due to building and site restrictions.


Analysis of WG and NG to Maintain Equity

  • We believe that all elementary schools should have equitable learning conditions and opportunities.

  • West Grove and North Grove do not have the same features as the other four elementary schools:

    • Science lab

    • Large group instruction room

    • Large cafeteria

    • Wide hallways

    • Large teacher workroom

    • Large media center

    • Sprinkler system

    • Appropriate classroom space for full day kindergarten


Analysis of WG and NGto Maintain EQUITY

  • Cost to make these facilities equitable to other four elementary schools (MG, PG, SG, CG)

    • $8 million plus for EACH school

  • This does not include additional classrooms to increase student capacity and program needs, such as full day kindergarten, English as a New Language (ENL), and GT or High Ability.


Renovate or Build?

Cost Comparisons

Build New Elementary School

  • Estimated Cost:

  • $18-20 Million

  • Annual Savings to the General Fund:

  • $500,000 per year

  • This solution allows us to operate more efficiently and expand academic programs.

Renovate North Grove and West Grove

Estimated Cost:

$16-17 Million

Annual Savings to the General Fund:

$0

This “solution” does not allow expanded programs in the classroom


Renovate or Build?

Renovation of West Grove & North Grove Facilities

Restrictions:

  • Load-bearing concrete block construction does not allow for widening hallways or changing room configuration

  • Lot sizes do not allow additions for increased capacity

  • West Grove is on septic system, requiring costly sewer tie-in

  • Proposed location of I-69 exchange at Smith Valley Road

Requirements:

Science lab

Large group instruction room

Large cafeteria

Wide hallways

Large teacher workroom

Large media center

Increased student capacity

Appropriate classroom space for full day kindergarten


Proposed Elementary Plan

  • Reduce from six to five elementary schools in 2010 (enrollment projection: 3,623)

  • Build new elementary school south and adjacent to Sugar Grove (Maple Grove model) to open in 2010

  • Close West Grove & North Grove, summer of 2010

  • Projected to need sixth elementary school in 2014 (enrollment projection: 4,060)

  • Projected to need seventh elementary school in 2027 (enrollment projection: 4,614)


Distribution of StudentsGoal – To reduce from 6 to 5 elementary schools for maximum efficiency


Benefits of Proposed Elementary Plan

Facility

Modern, energy-efficient building

Lower Maintenance

maintain one new building, rather than two older ones

Meets efficiency goal of serving 650-750 students

Easily accommodates high-tech multimedia classrooms

New building is longer-term facility solution, due to modern construction techniques allowing for future flexibility

New Elementary School


Benefits of Proposed Elementary Plan

  • Reduced Staffing

    • Possible Reduction of 5 Certified Positions, 5 Support Staff Positions

    • Reassignment of Certified Positions

    • Reassignment of 14 Support Staff Positions

    • Potential Annual Savings in the General Fund is approximately $500,000


2008

CG, MG, SG, WG, NG, and PG

6 Principals

6 Counselors

6 Art teachers

6 PE teachers

6 Music teachers

6 Kitchen staffs

6 Custodial supervisors

6 Office staffs

(nurse assistant, media assistant, secretary-treasurer, office assistant)

2010

New School and CG, MG, SG, & PG

5 Principals (and one asst. principal)

5 Counselors

5 Art teachers

5 PE teachers

5 Music teachers

5 Kitchen staffs

5 Custodial supervisors

5 Office staffs

(nurse assistant, media assistant, secretary-treasurer, office assistant)

Staff Adjustments

Staff reductions will save approximately $500,000 per year.

We believe that changes can be handled through retirements and resignations.


Benefits of Proposed Elementary Plan

Increased Efficiency

  • One elementary school is less expensive to operate than two

  • Provides savings to General Fund

  • Gives us ability to expand programs to ensure academic excellence

    • Gifted/High Ability Program

    • English as a New Language Program

    • World Languages offerings

    • Academic offerings at Middle School and High School levels

    • Full Day Kindergarten


Summary of Proposed Elementary Plan

  • Currently Six Elementary Buildings

    • Built: 1965 – 2006

      • The two oldest buildings are NGE and WGE

    • Instructional Space: 42,724 – 74,550 sq. ft.

      • The two smallest buildings are NGE and WGE

    • Acreage: 11.26 – 121.35 acres

      • The two smallest sites are NGE and WGE

  • Recommendation:

    • Close North Grove and West Grove;

    • Build additional elementary schools in 2010, 2014 (or whenneeded), and 2027 (or when needed)


 Proposed Facilities Plan

Meeting High Expectations for Excellence


Proposed 20-Year Facilities Plan

  • Renovation

  • For many years, we have used a 20-year cycle to schedule remodeling

    • Keeps buildings up to date

  • Every building will be renovated, beginning with:

    • High School Renovation – summer, 2009

    • Center Grove Elementary – January, 2010

    • Pleasant Grove Elementary – 2012


Proposed 20-Year Facilities Plan

  • Construction

    • New elementary school – 2010

    • Sixth elementary school on Maple Grove site – 2014 or later (when needed)

    • Third middle school – 2026

    • Seventh elementary school – 2027


Proposed 20-Year Facilities Plan

  • In the next five (5) years, we will raze

    • the old maintenance and transportation buildings

    • the two residential houses on Morgantown Rd

    • Old Maple Grove

  • However, NG and WG have commercial value

Disposal of Unneeded Facilities


Summary of Proposed 20-Year Facility

  • Renovation

    Over the next 20 years, every building will be renovated

  • Construction

    Over the next 20 years, four new schools will be built

    Three elementary schools

    One middle school

  • Disposal

    In the next five years, seven buildings will be sold or razed


 Financing Plan

“The good news is, we can complete this

20-Year Plan without raising the tax rate.”


School Funding in Indiana


Financing Major Projects Through 2015

  • Assumption about future assessed valuation growth is critical:

    • Actual 2007: $2,520,158,340

    • Projected 2015:$3,415,847,142

    • Projected 2027:$4,638,310,955

  • For the past decade, the average increase for AV has been 12%.

  • The above figures for assessed valuation are based on

    • 4% increase for 7 years

    • 3% increase for next 8 years

    • 2% increase thereafter


Financing Major Projects Through 2015

  • This proposed plan includes 5 major building projects that total $143.5 million before 2015:

    • High School renovation

    • Center Grove Elementary renovation

    • New Elementary School

    • Pleasant Grove Elementary renovation

    • Sixth Elementary School

  • However, we will request money only when needed.


Financing Major Projects Through 2015

  • Assumption about future assessed valuation growth is critical.

  • Beginning in 2015, we project a period of at least 8 years with no major building projects.

  • Financial goal is to maintain the tax rate at 41 cents in the Debt Service Fund.

    • The tax rate is the only aspect of local taxes that the school corporation can control
