Educational Master Facility Plan

In October 2018, the School Board concluded an eighteen-month, stakeholder engagement process by adopting an Educational Master Facility Plan (EMFP).  At the process outset, three goal areas of the EMFP were identified. They are:

  • to support the District’s vision for teaching and learning
  • to address and balance enrollment needs
  • to provide needed updates, repairs and replacements to improve the facility conditions to a baseline and equitable level

Designed as a roadmap to guide facility improvements, the adopted EMFP is a digital document reflecting a long range plan.  The EMFP represents a strategic vision for D36 facilities as the District continues to provide an engaging, progressive approach to education to meet the needs of current and future generations of learners.

Implementation

The D36 School Board adopted their Educational Facility Master Plan on October 23rd, 2018. Subsequently they developed a prioritized list of capital improvements to be accomplished over the next 2-4 years, pending the outcome of a community referendum.

Priorities

During the EMFP process, several key priorities were identified by the District, the Core Team, D36 teachers and staff, and the community. These priorities were explored through surveys issued by the District, and confirmed or revised in a series of Core Team workshops, Board meetings, and community engagement sessions.

Process

Facilitated by DLR Group, key stakeholders from D36 went through an iterative process to analyze needs, to collaborate to generate ideas, and to gather feedback. All of the data gathered in the analysis and feedback phases was input into a program data model that helped the team develop conceptual solutions for the District in a variety of situations. From those choices, the Board was able to adopt the plan that best suits the community.
