Our Elementary School Planning Team, made up of community members, school staff and local business leaders, began meeting in January to develop a
recommendation to address facilities needs for our elementary schools. Together they reviewed the Facilities Assessment, discussed twenty-first century learning needs, toured new elementary facilities and considered various options for buildings and locations. After careful consideration, they will be recommending the following to the school board
this Fall:
New Elementary School for Pre-K through 5 grade
· On the same campus as other buildingS
· Single story structure
· Demolition of Jackson “A” (older building)
· Reprogramming Jackson “B” as a new District Office
· Completing necessary improvements (from Facilities Assessment) at the middle and high schools and the bus garage

Their recommendation addresses our aging facilities and will provide learning environments for all of our students that are, first and foremost, warm, safe and dry. Additionally the buildings will have the technology, classrooms and labs to support student learning and achievement.

The cost to build the new Elementary School and complete the changes at Jackson is $36,105,298.00. The permanent improvements needed at the middle school, high school and bus garage total $10,844,415.00. The total cost for the master plan the team is recommending is $46,949,713.00.

The elementary building itself is not yet designed. That process will begin after a levy is approved. The cost estimates provided are based on the 2017 Ohio School Design Manual Project Cost of $222.37 per square foot. The square footage needed is based on students in grades Pre-K through 5.

All costs are current estimates and funding for the recommendation is not yet decided. The Finance Task Force will work through a funding recommendation to share with the school board at their next meeting August 14th.

Materials from all meetings are included in the documents below:
