Welcome to the Salado ISD Long Range Facilities Planning Committee Website!

 

Salado ISD empowers today’s youth to be leaders in a global society through educational excellence.

In response to the district’s projected growth and other aging and evolving facility needs, Salado ISD has established the Long Range Facilities Planning Committee (LRFPC). The committee is an invaluable group of community members formed to evaluate current and long-term facility needs of the school district and ultimately present a recommendation to the Board of Trustees as to how to proceed with a long-range plan.

Members of the committee will study a district-wide facilities assessment, enrollment projections, financial data, results of a community-wide survey and more to make the best recommendation.

This website will be updated as the committee works through the process and will include meeting agendas, presentations, notes, and relevant resources.

Recommendations to the Board of Trustees

Monday, January 29, 2018

1. What is the Long Range Facilities Planning Committee?

A group of community members that have come together to evaluate the district’s projected growth and other aging and evolving facility needs to provide current and long-term facility and equipment recommendations to the Salado ISD Board of Trustees in creating and maintaining learning environments that provide all students with great opportunities for success.

 

2. Why is Salado ISD forming a LRFPC?

The district wants input in evaluating its facility needs and by forming a Committee it allows the district to hear from and incorporate many different perspectives from people in the community. Committee participants reflect larger community values, needs, and desires.

 

3. Are only district staff on the committee?

No. The LRFPC represents a diverse demographic makeup of Salado ISD residents, including parents, non-parents, local civic and business leaders, as well as school staff working alongside one another to prioritize and build a recommendation to the Board of Trustees that best represents the values and perceptions of the entire community.

 

4. What documents and data does the committee review to
determine the needs of the school district?

The committee will study existing facility conditions by means of facility tours, review of the district’s facility assessment report and departmental presentations. The committee will also study financial data and results of a community survey to assist in forming their recommendation. SISD will make any other relevant data or requested data available to the committee that should aid them in their decision-making.
