Future Planning for Facilities
In May of 2021, the Avon Lake City Schools formed a committee to begin the task at looking at the state of our facilities. This coincided with a report from the Ohio Facilities Construction Committee (OFCC) identifying specific information related to the physical state of our schools. The committee consists of 39 individuals representing parents, staff, community members and a representative from the BOE. Stay tuned to this page for more information.
2021 Permanent Improvements and Other Projects (Presented at Regular Board Meeting, 11/2/21)
This is a presentation that would typically occur in August or September, following the conclusion of summer permanent improvement (PI) projects. It was moved due to COVID-related discussions and other presentations. The presentation is a summary of PI projects (parking lots, athletic facilities, interior lighting upgrades, etc.) and other projects (moving Open Door back to Learwood, etc.) completed or in progress between 3/1 and 11/2/21. Several of these projects were directly aligned with needs as identified in the OFCC Facility Assessment Report (see below).
Ohio Facilities Construction Commission (OFCC) Assessment - Summary (Presented at Regular Board Meeting, 4/13/21)
The full OFCC Assessment was completed in December, 2020. It included a shorter overview document and a longer (~500 pages) Facility Assessment Report. This linked presentation was meant to provide a concise summary of the assessment. It is important to note that the dollar figures referenced in the assessment and summary reflect a renovation estimate to bring each building up to new construction standards (as of December, 2020) and should not be interpreted to mean that the renovations are mandatory. This is how the OFCC figures the "renovation to replacement ratio," which is meant to provide guidance and to help have conversations with the community regarding the long-term plan for the district's facilities.
If you have any questions about the presentations that are linked below, please contact Dr. Ned Lauver, Director of Operations, at the Board office. Thank you!
