Comprehensive Facilities Master Plan

Phase II

Overview - Vision

Phase II work in the Comprehensive Facilities Master Plan (CFMP) process was conducted throughout the spring of 2019. The CFMP team reconvened to continue providing input and feedback for our process action teams and planning teams that met throughout the spring.

The process action teams, as a result of Phase I work in the CFMP, studied and researched best practices and applicable scenarios for our LSR7 schools. The process action teams and planning teams that were gathered are below:

Instructional Framework Team

R-7 Equity Plan Development Team

“Future Ready” School Visit Teams

Middle School Design Process Action Team

Year-Round School Process Action Team

Theme-Based Schools Process Action Team 2

Expansion of Work Force Ready Preparation Process Action Team 3

Early Childhood Expansion (partnership with Facilities) Team 4

English Language Learners Program Placement Process Action Team 

These teams were comprised of students, teachers, support staff, administrators, parents and community members. As they worked through their associated teams throughout the spring, they began reporting out their findings and recommendations in the summer of 2019.

At the same time, our partner DLR Group was collaborating on our LSR7 Playbook which encompasses a framework for decision-making as we move forward with #R7FutureReady initiatives, schools and programming.
