Master Planning

Why a master plan? The District adopted a five-year strategic plan (2014-2019) which includes a strategic initiative to: “Develop a comprehensive facilities plan that uses a proactive and creative approach to prioritize innovations and improvements with associated costs.” Over the 2014-15 school years, the District worked with the OFCC to develop a preliminary facilities assessment of its eight active schools. The District also completed a ten-year, projected-enrollment report. The District also retained a consultant for visioning and facilitation services related to developing a 21st Century teaching and learning environment and the International Baccalaureate (IB) educational framework. This visioning work will culminate with a final report in October 2015.

With that process nearly complete, the District will contract an architect to develop the master plan in the 2016 school year. This master plan will address options to update and maintain the eight Shaker schools and four non-school facilities (administrative building, data and technology building, service center and transportation depot). Additionally, the District became eligible for matching grant funds provided by the Ohio School Facilities Commission (OSFC) under the Classroom Facilities Assistance Program (CFAP). The District master plan will also assess the optional use of state matching funds to leverage available funding to update its facilities.

The community is invited to participate throughout the entire process to develop this master plan. A schedule of meetings will be published at least two weeks in advance for public participation. Thank you in advance for your support of high-quality facilities for the Shaker students.
