Facilities Master Plan Community Committee
Columbus City Schools is in the midst of its Facilities Master Plan (FMP) process in which community input is vitally important. The plan takes a regional approach to discuss the future of Columbus City Schools' buildings and facilities; what they need to look like to meet the District's mission and vision of academic success with students leading the way.
"The purpose is to bring more voices, more ideas, and more innovation to our conversation. It's important for equity to be a big part of the conversation," said Columbus Board of Education President Jennifer Adair." "Keeping equity at the center of the conversation to make sure every neighborhood, every region, and every school building gets what they need to meet the full vision of academic success."
Over the next three months, CCS will resume its regional approach to discussing the future of district school buildings and facilities with community, student, and staff voices as part of the process. This past spring, the District completed the first three phases of the process; Phase 1: GATHER; Phase 2: ENVISION; and Phase 3: DEFINE.
The subsequent three phases of the process, which will go through mid-December, are:
- Phase 4: ANTICIPATE
- Phase 5: CONSIDER
- Phase 6: TRANSFORM
Each step of the process is built to create a consensus of community values and a complete and clear understanding of the community’s expectations of future learning environments as part of the Facilities Master Plan.
The community, students, and staff must have a voice in these conversations. The ideas they bring to the table are invaluable in how our facilities and learning spaces look and feel to support our Portrait of a Graduate and student academic success and teacher success.
This month, the fourth phase, ANTICIPATE, will begin on September 27. During this phase, participants will be asked to tour two CCS school buildings: one recently constructed and another older construction. Participants will be asked to compare and contrast student-centered learning environments—your voice matters toward the future potential of Columbus City Schools.
