Planning for the Next 50 Years
FUTURE-PROOFING USD 418 FACILITIES:
Our community’s ability to thrive in the future depends on the quality of our schools, and facilities play a major role.
We’re at a crossroads. Many buildings—including the HVAC, electrical, and other systems within them—have exceeded their life expectancy. Our community demographics are shifting. The needs of our students and staff are different from when the original buildings were designed.
WEBINAR: Factors to Consider in Our 50-Year Plan
Over the past five years, the USD 418 Board of Education has been evaluating our current buildings and looking at how facilities can help fuel student and community success for the next 50 years. We recently held visioning sessions with community and staff to look at key factors and develop possible solutions. Then, community members provided advice on possible options that emerged from these meetings. Now, the Board of Education is evaluating packages, costs, and financing options, using community feedback from the survey to guide the discussion.
CHALLENGES TO CONSIDER
The Board is working to narrow and define the scope for a Spring 2023 Bond issue. They will be hosting a Community Work Session on January 23, 2023 at 6:00PM in the McPherson High School Commons.
