Facilities Master Plan

 

FY Fall 2012-2013  Student Population Projections
Please click here for the FY Fall 2012-13 student population projections (Demographer’s Report).
The purpose of this report is to identify and inform the District of the trends occurring in the community; how these trends may affect future student population; and to assist in illustrating facility adjustments that may be necessary to accommodate the potential student population shifts.  The District can then use this information to better plan for the need, location and timing of facility or boundary adjustments.

Facilities Master Plan Process
On October 25, 2011, the Board awarded a contract to LPA to create a Facilities Master Plan (FMP). This FMP will be used as a strategic tool, enabling the District to identify and prioritize short- and long-term facility goals over the next 10 to 20 years. The objective in this process is to obtain as much feedback from varied District stakeholder groups as possible. The extensive nature of this input process has allowed the District to develop a comprehensive plan that incorporates diverse perspectives.
On January 24, 2012, the planning team provided the Board an overview of the process including key tasks, the plan to collect input from committees and other stakeholders, and a timeline with a meeting schedule.
On June 19, 2012, the planning team provided the Board an update on the facilities master planning process including:

1.) the updated collaboration diagram which reflected the increased number of staff surveys, the expanded vehicles for outreach to students, parents, and the community, and childcare as a new area of focused input

2.) survey results compiled to date (i.e., teachers, maintenance and operations, library/media specialists, classroom aides, and principals) as well as surveys pending for parents, leadership/fundraiser parents and community members

3.) the draft guiding principles developed with the Facilities Master Planning Committee

4.) draft examples of site needs assessments for elementary, middle and high schools

On November 27, 2012, the planning team  provided an update on the work completed since June and presented the Draft Facilities Master Plan.

To progress to a Final Facilities Master Plan, the Board provided guidance on the items listed below:
1. Site master planning recommendations

2. Preferred school size policy and recommendation to address projected enrollment growth

3. Prioritization approach and impact to project implementation as funding becomes available

4. Three level prioritized scope concept:

• Level 1 – Lowest cost, highest immediate impact

• Level 2 – Medium cost, short range (1-5 years)

• Level 3 – Highest cost, long range (5-10 years)

 

On January 29, 2013, the Board approved the final version of the Facilities Master Plan.

 

Facilities Master Plan Committee
PUSD has initiated a Facilities Master Planning Process to identify long-term demographic and educational trends, address current facility conditions, and develop strategies to address these needs in a comprehensive manner.

The District’s Facilities Master Plan Committee, consisting of community leaders and district stakeholders, will meet every two weeks for a total of six meetings through the duration of the process. These meetings are open to the public.
