Whereas buildings, equipment and grounds are essential for child development and are of the utmost importance to help make healthy, intelligent and useful citizens, the Board of Education shall make the necessary provisions for the planning of facilities to carry out the goals and objectives of the school district.

The Board shall review procedures and recommendations for periodically updating the long-range school facilities program. This review will provide guidance for capital outlay expenditures, and will assure that the school district has well-planned school buildings at proper locations when needed and at reasonable costs. The superintendent shall report to the Board annually the status of facilities needed, based on enrollment projections and other factors.

Planning for school buildings may be initiated by the Board members upon their recognition of the need, or possibly upon request by the staff, patrons and/or the superintendent. Principals and staff shall be consulted during the sketch plan stage and until the final layout is determined. Building plans for new construction or major structural renovation will be designed in accordance with seismic design standards if required by law and will comply with requirements for access to persons with disabilities as required by law.
