The District is in the process of developing a Facilities Master Plan.
In 2015 the Chardon Local School District engaged in strategic planning, which resulted in key recommendations regarding our facilities.
- In July 2016 the District began working with the Ohio Schools Facilities Commission (OSFC) to conduct an initial assessment of our current facilities and provide enrollment projections.
- The assessment concludes that the majority of our school buildings are beyond reasonable renovation and need to be replaced (the State employs the 2/3’s rule: If the cost of renovating is at least 2/3 the cost of building new, the recommendation is to replace)
- Enrollment is projected to decline 10 percent over the next ten years
- The assessment recommends reducing the number of elementary buildings to streamline operational efficiencies
- The District organized a Facilities Advisory Committee, comprised of community members, parents, and staff, to review the assessment and develop a long-range Facilities Master Plan
- The Board of Education hired Then Design Architects (Willoughby, OH) to validate the assessment and assist the Facilities Advisory Committee in developing a conceptual master plan that is cost-effective and meets the long-term educational needs of the District
Informational Meetings will be held across the District on the following dates All meetings begin at 7:00 PM
- The Facilities Advisory Committee, with assistance from Then Design Architects, will provide its recommended Facilities Master Plan to the Board of Education in June 2017
