Summary : As part of the 2017-18 Master Capital Plan, the Board’s Long Range Planning Committee (LRPC) identified several over- and under-utilized schools in the District and stated their plans to research these schools further and determine if boundaries, programs, or other operational modifications can better balance enrollment at these schools.

On January 3, 2018 the LRPC School Capacity Analysis Subcommittee presented findings to the entire LRPC and their Board liaisons.

The committee jointly decided The LRPC to forward this recommendation to the DCSD Board of Education for review and action.

In accordance with the LRPC Bylaws, the LRPC is to evaluate growth trends within the District and to make recommendations to the Board of Education on the utilization of existing facilities.

A Request for Proposal would be needed to hire an experienced consulting firm to analyze, facilitate and gather community feedback, and make recommendations to the Board of Education regarding the long term utilization of existing district owned facilities.
Funding:
Recommendation: That the Board of Education hire an independent company to analyze District projections and make objective data-driven recommendations regarding the utilization of school facilities.
