Strategic Objective 3.4 of the District’s Five-Year Strategic Plan
calls for the creation of a long-term facilities plan that supports educational equity, addresses the District’s needs and supports student learning.
Our vision is for all Shaker Heights children to attend school in buildings that are modern safe and inclusive; support academic excellence; are diverse, integrated and welcoming; promote community, and; allow the District to remain fiscally responsible
Students learn better in a safe and comfortable environment. The priorities we have for our students are the drivers of our long-term facilities planning. These priorities are:
- Inclusive Excellence
- Social and emotional health
- Supports for students with disabilities
- Common, collaborative learning spaces
- Technology access
The creation of a long-term facilities plan is part of the Forward Together initiative which brings together the Schools, the City of Shaker Heights and the Shaker Heights Public Library to create a Joint Facilities Master Plan that meets the needs of the entire community.
