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?
A listening post is an opportunity to collect community input. Avon Grove School District held 23 Listening Posts in the fall and winter of 2017. Each listening post served a dual purpose.  First, the consultants from FJJ sought input from the community on the Facilities Input Group (FIG) non-binding recommendation.  Second, the consultants spent a large portion of the session collecting input on the District’s overall strengths and current/future needs through structured dialogue.

Community feedback on recommendations for the Avon Grove School District’s facilities was presented to the Board of School Directors in January 2018.
