Phase I - Background

On Tuesday, June 23, 2015, City Council endorsed the  Long Range Educational Facilities Plan following the ACPS School Board's adoption on Thursday, June 11, 2015. At that time, the School Board added a  new recommendation (#12) in the Executive Summary

In 2012, a 19-member work group was established and was comprised of members from the community, ACPS School Board, City Council, Campagna Center, and the PTA Council, supported by ACPS and City staff. The work group met quarterly to explore the major issues impacting public school facilities over the long term and to guide staff in the development of a Long Range Educational Facilities Plan for consideration by the School Board and City Council.
