Strategic Intent

What are we trying to accomplish?

 

The overall intent of the Facilities Strategic Initiative is to evaluate the current building infrastructure and develop a plan for the future aligned with the mission and vision of the Avon Grove School District. The plan shall include best uses for the existing facilities and sites to meet the needs of students, based on the strategic plan, the educational programs and enrollment projections. In addition, the plan shall include renovation and maintenance needs for the current buildings as well as the potential for future expansion of district facilities based upon the educational goals of the district.

 

Why is accomplishing this important to achieving the mission of the district?

The mission of the District states, “The purpose of the Avon Grove School District is to foster a learning environment for all students to be exceptionally well-prepared to succeed and lead full and meaningful lives.” In order to accomplish the mission of the district, the district must provide a strong educational program for all students to ensure that they are career and college ready. The development of a comprehensive facilities plan is essential to ensuring that the district has a safe and secure infrastructure that supports the educational goals and programs of the district.

The district facilities must meet the educational, physical, intellectual, social and emotional needs of students. At the same time, the buildings must meet all state and federal requirements to be accessible to individuals with disabilities. All schools must be of adequate size to provide for the safety of students and provide outdoor play areas, bus loading and unloading, parking facilities for students, staff and visitors. The school buildings must be safe and create an environment that will encourage students to learn. In addition, the schools must be organized in such a way as to align with the educational programs of the district and meet staff needs responsible for delivering the educational program.

What is a listening post?
 
The listening post is an opportunity to collect community input on the School District.  Each listening post will serve a dual purpose.  First, the consultants from FJJ will seek input from the community on the recently presented recommendation from the Facilities Input Group (FIG).  Second, the consultants will spend a large portion of the session collecting input on the District’s overall strengths and current/future needs through structured dialogue.  
 
How many participants can be in a listening post?
 
Each listening post will have no more than 40 participants.  
 
How can I reserve my spot?
 
Please contact Barbara Perzel to reserve your spot at BPerzel@avongrove.org or by phone at 610-869-2441. Everyone who makes a reservation to participate, will be given an opportunity to participate.  Advanced registration is required and recommended. In certain circumstances, walk-in participation may be accommodated based on available space, but prospective participants are encouraged to make an advanced reservation to guarantee participation.
 
This is your opportunity to share your perspective about your school community. The District encourages the community to participate.
