Long Range Facilities Planning

Evergreen Public Schools has undergone a comprehensive process to strategically plan facilities to meet current and future needs of our community.  The Long Range Facility Planning process involved multiple stakeholders, including local citizens, community partners, school district board of directors, school administrators, staff, and students, as well as architects, engineers, and construction professionals.  Implementation of any major building program is contingent upon public understanding and support, so it is essential that the community be fully informed of the needs and the plans to meet the needs.

Comprehensive facilities assessment, including the age and condition of each facility, building characteristics, safety and security, enrollment/growth, and special populations was used to prioritize replacement schools, deferred maintenance, capital renewal, health and safety upgrades, and code issues.

Educational adequacy: Between May and October, facilities staff and LSW Architects gathered input from nearly 200 stakeholders in 36 schools and departments across the district to determine how current facilities contribute to or detract from the ability to execute the educational plan. Ad Hoc committees consisted of principals, certificated and classified staff, and parents. A comprehensive list of building improvement projects as a result this input can be seen here

A great deal of work has gone into planning the new elementary school template, starting with a Symposium in May with over 65 stakeholders. A Core Team continues to meet regularly to refine the ideas that came out of the symposium.

In order to help the district and align classroom space with personalized learning in all schools, Evergreen Public Schools is working with a design consultant on a multi-phase furniture pilot that will engage staff and students, test assumptions, and help us make strategic decisions as we move forward.
