what we ve done so far
What we’ve done so far
  • Reviewed 2008 feasibility study by Crabtree, Rohrbaugh & Associates
  • Discussed the amount of renovation needed at our schools, especially junior high and North Lincoln Hill. We must bring buildings up to code.
  • Gathered data: enrollment figures, operational costs, etc.
  • Split into three subcommittees to study the pros and cons of 5-, 4- and 3-building concepts.
  • Wallaceton-Boggs remains closed in all scenarios.
our current objective
Our current objective
  • We want to hear from you!
  • We need input on a critical question …
5 building plan the pros
5-Building Plan – The Pros
  • Status quo is comfortable and eliminates need to explain changes
  • No vacant buildings in any community

  • Cost of renovation - $27 - $30 million
  • Long-term operational costs
  • Inequity of class size and duplicated resources
  • JH/OME – little to no outside facilities
  • Multi-purpose space at NLH
  • High ceilings and hearing issue at JH
  • Code violations
  • Locked into K-6, 7-8, 9-12 format
4 building plan the pros
4-Building Plan – The Pros
  • Closing a school saves costs, overhead
  • Possible new state-of-the-art Junior High/Middle School
  • Possible warehousing capability
  • Less sense of community loss because fewer schools would be closed than a 3-building plan
  • Possible relocation of district offices
4 building plan the pros1
4-Building Plan – The Pros

4-Building Plan – The Cons
  • Loss of a community school
  • Redistricting
  • Concerns about space/class size in a renovated building
  • Staff reductions
  • Long-term operational costs of 4 buildings are greater than 3 buildings
3 building plan the pros
3-Building Plan – The Pros
  • Reduction in operating expenses
  • Sufficiently accommodates limited potential growth and equalizes class sizes
  • PDE reimbursement (state funding)
  • Fewer buildings slated for renovation
  • Possibility of closed schools becoming community centers
  • Less maintenance required

And now for the cons …

3 building plan the cons
