Chardon Local School District
Facilities Master Plan
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.
    1. 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)
    2. Enrollment is projected to decline 10 percent over the next ten years
    3. 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
  • 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
Informational Meetings will be held across the District on the following dates All meetings begin at 7:00 PM
Wednesday, February 8 - Park School
