NSSD Long Range Facilities Master Planning Committee
The initial mission of this committee when it was formed was to implement a community-based school planning process that would address NSSD facility needs for a 20 year planning period, which would be reviewed at five-year intervals. The first committee was convened in 2011 and eventually recommended a construction bond proposal in 2012, which was approved by voters in November 2012.
A second LRFMP Committee was convened in 2016-17, but did not recommend a construction bond at that time. However, the committee recommended they come back together before another five-year interval to reevaluate should schools become overcrowded, due to the planned and proposed housing developments in Stayton and Sublimity. The 2019-20 Long Range Facility Committee was been re-convened in October 2019 for this reason.
There was a committment to form the committee’s membership so that it is a representative group of all of the District’s communities and schools, as well as other government entities and community service organizations. When all NSSD staff, LRFMP Committee and NSSD board members gather around tables, there are approximately 40 in attendance. That is a lot of different opinions to consider but one thing is for certain, ALL have a sincere desire to DO WHAT'S BEST FOR KIDS.
