Facility Master Plan
|Facility Master Plan
A facility master plan will provide a framework for District 64 to manage its facilities, and to plan and budget for the full range of building maintenance needs going forward. “Just as the Strategic Plan is guiding investments in student learning over the next several years, a facility master plan will help the District prioritize the maintenance needs of schools,” according to Superintendent Philip Bender. For example, a master plan incorporates planning for school interiors, such as heating/ventilation, utilities, technology infrastructure, carpet, painting and lighting, as well as exterior concerns, such as drainage, playgrounds, asphalt and landscaping.
Activities in 2011-12
Overview -- The first year of work featured establishing goals for the District's facilities and the completion of a comprehensive Maintenance Plan based on physical assessments of the District's nine buildings, which was presented to the Board of Education on December 12, 2011. An Energy Benchmarking Analysis, a Capacity Study, and community survey also were completed during the year. A draft of Part I of the Facility Master Plan was presented to the Board of Education at the July 9, 2012 meeting.
Here are the District's Facility Goals as adopted by the Board on September 26, 2011:
|Students come first in all decisions!||Designs will be sensitive to their setting and reflect the community's architectural style.|
|The Project Budget will not be exceeded.||Designs will be energy-efficient and work to maximize natural lighting.|
|The process will involve the community and staff members.||Site utilization will be carefully evaluated and developed; "Green Space" will be maximized, as much as possible.|
|Finishes and building systems will be evaluated based on lifecycle costing.||Any new construction will meet LEED Silver criteria.|
|Design schools to support the District's educational philosophy and curriculum, aligning with the District's Strategic Plan.||New building improvements will have Energy Star ratings.|
|Develop a realistic schedule and adhere to it. Complete the Facility Master Plan by June 2013.||Designs will reflect the community's desire for a non-institutional look.|
|Provide facility equity among all facilities.||Designs will have functional efficiency.|
