Community Task Force
The MTSD Board of Education approved the Long Range Master Plan: A Framework for Our Future on July 22, 2019. A Community Task Force was launched to review and consider facility challenges, establish priorities, and make recommendations to the administration and board regarding facilities issues. The task force was an independent entity comprised of voices and perspectives from across our school district community.
The initiation of a task force was the next step in the district's long-range facilities planning process, which began in 2018. The process included a study of population and enrollment in the development of an all-encompassing 10-year framework. The study projects enrollment will continue to increase at the elementary level over the next 5-10 years.
The long-range master plan identified several challenges, including projections that point to inadequate classroom space to meet expected growth at the elementary level. Outdated classroom configurations at all schools are not conducive to modern student-centered learning approaches. Site circulation and traffic flow present challenges at all campuses.
The task force met in fall 2019 to engage in their review and work to develop recommendations. Meeting notes and additional information was posted on this page.
