Facility Planning

Our District has worked hard to develop the District Strategic Plan, and one of the goals within that plan is to develop a capital improvement plan to meet the district’s needs. Through community, staff, and student engagement, the Drummond Area School District aims to develop a Facility Master Plan that provides direction on the projects and timeline of needs identified within the district.

We are committed to continued conversations with you as we look ahead to the future needs of our students and community.

Phased Approach to Facilities Planning:

Drummond Area School District originally initiated a long-range facilities planning process in 2022 with a district-wide facilities study. Our goal for many years has been to address identified facility needs in distinct project phases to be the best stewards of taxpayer monies.

Following the completion of a comprehensive Facility Assessment, we were able to identify areas of need in our school buildings and develop a Master Plan to assist with the future planning needs of the district.

Gathering Community & Staff Feedback

The district and the school board will gather information from district staff regarding the facilities study to further identify areas of focus for our staff.

To engage the community, the district plans to hold Facilities Planning Community Listening Sessions in May in order to gather feedback on how and when to address the identified district needs as we create our long-range facilities master plan. The purpose of these Listening Sessions is to inform the community of the current state of our buildings and gain valuable community input prior to a district-wide survey.

Next Steps – Community Feedback this Fall

The district will also be conducting a community-wide survey in the Fall that will be shared with all staff and mailed to every household in the school district to gather qualitative and quantitative data to provide our School Board feedback on if the community is willing to invest in our facilities, what projects they prioritized and when we should get started. Stay tuned for more details coming soon on how you can learn more and provide feedback!

Residents will have two easy ways to take the survey:

  1. Complete the paper survey and mail it back to School Perceptions in the post-paid envelope provided

  2. Log on to the website listed on the paper survey, enter the unique access code, and take the survey online

To get additional survey copies for members of your household, please contact the district office.
