Our projected enrollment growth and our visionary Strategic Plan underscore the need for a comprehensive facilities review and planning process that kicked off last fall and continued throughout the year.
Facilities Planning Process
The district worked last summer with a demographer to project our enrollment trends and with a design and engineering firm to collect data about our facilities. Next steps included community involvement, with engagement efforts taking place in order to collect input from the community at large.
A Facility Planning Committee comprised of a trio of teams focused on the areas of learning spaces, community spaces, and physical conditions.
Facilities Planning Committee Membership
The Facility Planning Committee was formed with an application process in September of 2018 to study the White Bear Lake Area Schools' facilities and develop a comprehensive, long-range Facilities Master Plan for recommendation to the School Board. The facilities study and resulting recommendation was based on capacity, current enrollment, projected enrollment, educational needs of the School District, alignment with the District's Strategic Vision, community recreation, special programs, school security, and financial stewardship.
