    Board conducts community survey investinginfuture  

    For over a year, the Board of Education and District staff have engaged our community, staff and architects to develop a Facilities Master Plan. This plan includes an educational assessment of our buildings, combined with an existing physical assessment, to provide a detailed, long-term view of our building needs. 

    Here you will find a summary of the high priority needs across the District that were identified in our Facilities Master Plan. They include physical assets such as roofs, windows, plumbing, doors and fixtures that need repair or replacement. They also include renovation of the spaces in our schools, such as libraries and science labs that do not currently support the needs of future ready, 21st century learners.

    We’ve spent a great deal of time developing, studying and prioritizing projects that will preserve and enhance learning environments through cost-effective solutions.

    Our Board of Education is considering a bond proposal on the April 2017 ballot to complete approximately $154 million in work identified here. In order to make that decision, the Board is seeking stakeholder input.


    Beginning today, our Board is working with a partner to conduct a telephone and online survey to solicit community input. Community members will be selected for the telephone survey at random to ensure a representative sample. Phone calls will come from "Market Research Associates" from a 913 or 816 area code. 
     
    All members of the community are invited to participate in the online survey that will be available on our District website, www.cusd200.org, beginning today and through September 30.

    Your input on our Facilities Master Plan in critical. You can view more information at www.cusd200.org/facilities. We welcome your participation and feedback.
