Facility Needs Assessment Meeting

Facilities Needs Assessment
Posted on 01/27/2023
The Earlham Community School District is currently working to complete a district needs assessment. To create a long range plan for facilities, the school board determined the need to work with an expert in the area of construction management. In August the Board selected Boyd Jones to gather details about our current facility and facility needs of the district. By gathering this information Boyd Jones will compile a formal district needs assessment. This assessment will be used by the district to create a long range plan to drive the facility needs as well as upkeep of the current facilities.

This planning will also allow the district to plan for the financial commitment that may come with the identified
needs. The team from Boyd Jones has already gathered information about the current facilities by performing
evaluations of our classrooms, mechanical rooms and overall structure of the current buildings.

On January 26 at 6 PM, the School Board hosted a work session to gather feedback from the public on their vision for facility needs.  The meeting lasted approximately two hours with close to 30 stakeholders in attendance.  Boyd Jones will take the input from this meeting to continue the facility planning process.

Questions about this process should be directed to Superintendent Steve Kaster.
