Work continues on planning our long-range school facilities program for the school district. Below is background information, as well as an update concerning where we are with this project and what to expect in the coming months. The school district began discussions concerning possible placement of aging school facilities in 2016. Meetings with the Ohio Facilities Construction Commission (OFCC) led to the following:
- Assessment of all CLSD instructional facilities by the OFCC. These assessments led to recommendations by the OFCC that the replacement of existing school facilities was more cost effective than renovation based on overall needs identified in each building.
- Completion of updated enrollment projections for CLSD indicating a continuing decline in enrollment, with the projection of a 10 percent reduction in enrollment by 2026.
- Formulation of the district’s Facilities Advisory Committee (FAC) comprised of parents, community leaders, Board of Education members, educators, and school design professionals to begin evaluating options for the school district.
- Development of a conceptual Master Plan (MP) for CLSD completed collaboratively with the OFCC, design professionals, and CLSD (through the FAC). This MP recommends the following:
Construction of a new PK5 facility and Construction of a new 6-12 facility.
