SIDNEY PUBLIC SCHOOLS: LONG-RANGE FACILITIES PLANNING
Beginning September 24, 2014, the District will begin work on a master plan to address future needs of the school system. The District will be hosting a community event on Thursday, September 25, 2014 from 6:30 PM to 8:00 PM at Sidney Middle School to gather community input.
The primary project goals are to prepare and develop a master plan with a variety of options based upon but not limited to:
Facility modernization of existing buildings—prioritize remaining district facility needs of existing campuses not addressed in recent improvement projects,
Independent demographic study—completion of a demographic study that accounts for recent and ongoing economic developments associated with oil and gas development, commercial and residential development and enrollment increases experienced by the district. Information forecasting five, ten and twenty years into the future is critical in understanding future facility planning needs of the district,
Education space programs—considerations with trustees would include: a) grade level options that optimize learning and the use of existing facilities, b) maximizing school and community use of facilities and sites, and c) cost effective solutions for new space and infrastructure.
Facility financing—current bonding capacity under Montana Code Annotated limits the district’s funding capacity to 50% of the District’s taxable value of the property subject to taxation in either the elementary or high school district. Any future facility expansion of any size will require alternative funding sources and understanding of all potential alternative sources is necessary as the school community considers expansion needs.
Please help us prepare for the future of our school community by attending the community input session on Thursday, September 25, 2014, from 6:30 to 8:00 PM at the Sidney Middle School Auditorium.
