Development CommitteeSchool Usage and Building Recommendations

Big Walnut School District

Board of Education Meeting

June 9, 2008

background
Background
  • Elementary and Middle Schools at Current Capacity
  • District Survey indicates community largely recognizes situation
  • Data indicates both an elementary and middle school facility are needed
what do the projections mean
What do the Projections mean??
  • High: High historic projection, plus about 80% of builders projections
  • Moderate: High historic projections, plus about 40% of builders projections
  • Low: Moderate historic projections, plus about 20% of builders projections
  • It is possible for higher than projected enrollments if significant subdivisions are proposed beyond what we know about
historic enrollment projections
Historic Enrollment Projections
  • DeJong and Assoc. developed statistical model based on :
    • Live birth data
    • Historical enrollment
    • Historical housing information
temporary space
Temporary Space
  • Modulars and rental space are usable, but not optimal teaching space
  • Assumption: These facilities will be used as needed, for as long as they remain viable
evaluation for expansion
Evaluation for Expansion
  • Souders Elementary
    • Best potential for expansion, but furthest distance from current demand
    • Shared spaces at capacity
    • Utilities at capacity
  • Big Walnut Elementary
    • Site access is limited (single entry/exit)
    • Shared spaces at capacity
    • Utilities at capacity
evaluation for expansion1
Evaluation for Expansion
  • Harrison Street
    • Site too small
    • Structure older
    • Utilities at capacity
  • Middle School
    • Shared spaces at capacity
    • Insufficient land available
    • Utilities only designed for current capacity
what have we learned
What have we learned?
  • Renovations or additions are not feasible
  • Based on the survey results, the community is aware of the need for more classrooms, and sees the need as serious in the near future
  • Community top concerns:
    • Overcrowded schools
    • Large class sizes
    • Decline of quality in the academic program
  • Based on projections, 2 new schoolsare needed
analysis of options
Analysis of Options

How to accommodate the projected growth?

  • Brainstormed options
  • Narrowed to 5, varying grade levels and priority
  • Elementary was needed first
  • New elementary of similar size to current would not last past 2011
  • Need to move 5th grade out or build 3 schools.
options considered
Options Considered
  • Build a new elementary, BWMS becomes a school for grades 5-6 and build a new school for grades 7-8
  • Build a new elementary and a new middle school, keeping grade distributions the same
  • Build a new elementary and a new middle school, with both middle schools having grades 5-8.
slide15
Recommended option: A Build a new elementary, BWMS becomes a school for grades 5-6 and build a new school for grades 7-8
  • Most efficient use of new space in short and medium term (5 yrs)
  • Provides capacity to get through at least 2013 school year based on current projections
  • Minimizes redistricting -- limits to the elementary level
buildings in option a
Buildings in Option A
  • New K-4 Elementary*: 500 Students (Existing elementary schools become K-4)
  • Current BWMS becomes intermediate school: Students from grades 5-6 district-wide
  • New Middle School Building: 700 Students capacity for grades 7-8

*First year is K-5

land requirements
Land Requirements
  • Elementary –
    • 20 acres
    • Location depends on demand
  • Middle School
    • 40 acres
    • Location depends on grade usage
land next steps
Land Next Steps
  • Committee recommendation is to use the S. Miller Drive property for immediate elementary school need
  • Middle School – District is currently seeking donations and evaluating potential sites

Interested parties may contact Superintendent 740-965-2706

est elementary building timeline
Est. Elementary Building Timeline
  • 20 months from bond passage to usage of elementary
  • November 2008 passage  August 2010 usage
    • 2010 Elementary 100-211 students over capacity
    • Will be using about 75% of elementary capacity when moves are complete
  • May 2009 passage  January 2011 usage
    • 2011 Elementary 140-291 students over capacity
    • Will be using about 80% of elementary capacity when moves are complete
est middle school building timeline
Est. Middle School Building Timeline
  • 24-32 months from bond passage to usage of middle school
  • November 2008 passage  August 2011 usage
    • 2011 Middle School 30-109 students over capacity
    • Will be using about 70% of combined capacity when complete
  • May 2009 passage  January 2012 usage
    • 2012 Middle School 43-144 students over capacity
    • Will be using about 75% of combined capacity when complete
summary
Summary
  • Recommended option provides for projected district growth through 2013-14
  • Takes into account district survey results of community urgency and desire to be proactive
  • Minimizes redistricting
  • Moving 5th graders out of elementary buildings maximizes use of all building resources
