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

 Proposed Elementary Plan

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


Efficiency

EFFICIENCY

  • Getting maximum use of facility for minimum expense

  • Considerations

    • Energy

    • Staffing

    • Transportation

  • State Expectations

  • Trends across Indiana


Efficiency elementary schools

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

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 schools1

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

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 ng to maintain equity1

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.

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 build1

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 plan1

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 students goal to reduce from 6 to 5 elementary schools for maximum efficiency

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


Benefits of proposed elementary plan

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 plan1

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


Staff adjustments

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.

School Funding in Indiana


Financing major projects through 2015

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


Public forum proposed 20 year facilities plan january 16 31 2008 6 30 8 00 pm

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
