Back in October of 2017, the Board of Education approved the Long Term Facilities Plan along with using up to $22 million of existing reserves to pay for the first two years of facilities projects within that plan.  We are now in the planning process for year 2 of the Long Term Facilities Plan.  Next summer (June-August 2019) we will be completing several projects. 
 
Included are:
1.  New bathrooms and plumbing repairs at Turner school
2.  Complete the renovation of remaining bathrooms at Indian Knoll school
3.  New asphalt pavement, sidewalks, and curb repair for Currier parking lot and addition of 14 parking spaces
4.  New STEM Lab/Innovation Centers at Gary, Indian Knoll, Currier, Wegner, and Pioneer schools
5.  New secure entrances at all elementary schools as well as the Early Learning Center and ESC (Administration building)
 
As mentioned earlier, these projects will be paid from existing District reserves, no funds are being borrowed. Updates to these projects will be forthcoming on the District website in the coming months.
 
 
October 2017
The Board of Education approved a Long Term Facilities Plan on October 5, 2017.
 
This plan was developed by the Facilities Committee which started meeting in February 2017. The Committee was comprised of 14 members including:
  • D33 administrators,
  • Arcon staff (District's architectural firm), 
  • 2 D33 Board members
  • teachers union representative,
  • school principal,
  • PTO members, and
  • members of the community.

Work will begin in several schools starting in June 2018 and will continue for at least the next 2 summers. District 33 will use existing fund reserves to pay for this long term plan, no borrowed money will used.

This is a major D33 initiative which will impact current and future students, staff, and community members in appositive way. We look forward to sharing the progress of this major initiative in the forthcoming months and years.
