Facilities Master Plan
After months of engaging District 200 staff and community members, architects Perkins + Will presented the Facility Master Plan Report to the Board of Education in April 2016. The final report, including an executive summary, is available below. The Facility Master Plan identifies all of the needs throughout our buildings - it does not indicate that the Board has to or will address all of the needs contained in the report.
The Facility Master Plan (FMP) is a physical and educational assessment of our buildings. District 200 schools have physical assets like roofs, windows, plumbing, doors and fixtures that need to be repaired or replaced within the next few years. Many of the spaces in our schools don’t match the needs of future ready, 21st century learners. A FMP is a long-term view of our facility needs both now and in the future.
A FMP allows the Board to make well-thought-out and cost-effective decisions about facility changes and take many factors, such as safety, security and educational needs of all our students into account. To assemble the final report, the District engaged architects Perkins + Will to collaborate and engage our school staff and community to fully identify the educational and physical needs and priorities at all of our buildings.
Our schools are a reflection of the community and reflect the value our community places on education. Our community greatly values our schools and has made significant investments in them over time. Our schools have served us well over the years. Our investments, our schools, are in need of some repair and upgrades to match the needs of 21st century learners.
