Faribault Public Schools is investigating the potential of remodeling and adding additional throughout the district. During the fall of 2016, a committee comprised of district staff and community members investigated areas of district facilities that need improvement. This committee purpose was to determine whether the district should pursue hiring an architectural firm to further investigate facility needs. Based on the unanimous support of the committee, the school board approved hiring Wold Architects and Engineers to begin the process of examining facility needs in the district.
Faribault Public Schools is now in the process of recruiting 20-30 interested residents to serve on a Community Task Force on Facilities. This task force will study the district’s facilities with help from Wold’s expertise to develop a comprehensive facilities plan to aid the district adopting the following goals:
1.Create the best facilities to enhance student success and community engagement.
2.Prepare all students to be successful by expanding programs and enhancing pathways toward graduation.
3.Develop prek-5 options that will enhance student success through STEAM, language immersion and/or year round school.
Task force meetings will be held at the Faribault Public Schools District Office from 6:00-8:00 pm. The meetings are tentatively scheduled for:
January 25 March 9 April 20
February 8 March 23 May 2
February 23 April 6
Attendance at all meetings is imperative to the work of the task force.
