Facilities Committee Update
January 11, 2017
Meeting in regular session on Jan. 11, 2017, the Board of Education unanimously approved the Long Range Facility Plan as presented by Incite Design Studio.
In addition to approval of the Long Range Facility Plan, the Board of Education approved a tax levy with sunset clause ballot initiative to appear on the April 4 Municipal Ballot. This initiative is called Prop. KIDS and is a 35 cents per $100 assessed valuation tax levy increase through the 2036 tax year.
Prop. KIDS Ballot Proposal
The findings of the independent facilities and program evaluations conducted by Incite Design Studios and Vue Engineering were presented to the Facilities Committee and the Board of Education this month. Superintendent Andy Comstock also presented financial information to the committee and the Board.
The first Community Forums on D32 Facilities will be held Monday, Dec. 12 at Perry Park Center Theater. There will be two opportunities to hear the presentations: the first at 5:30 pm and the second at 7 pm. During the presentation, audience members will be able to provide feedback through interactive polling using their mobile devices. The forums are open to the public.
Perry County School District 32 Facilities Committee
The Facilities Committee has been appointed by the Board of Education with the understanding that the quality of the District’s instructional program is greatly impacted by the environment in which it functions.
The goal of the Facilities Committee will be to assist the Board of Education in providing a plan to ensure that all students are educated in appropriate facilities that are well-maintained and meet the most stringent safety standards, and which support the highest level of educational programs.
The Facilities Committee will explore all means available of achieving that goal, recognizing that capital outlay funds are limited and that it must establish priorities for any expansion or building plans by first increasing the efficient use of existing space.
The Facilities Committee will provide timely reports to the Board of Education as to its research and planning.
