Since last fall, Parkway has been seeking feedback on our master facilities plan so we can address the ongoing maintenance and repair needs of our aging buildings. You might be interested to know the average Parkway school is 54 years old and we operate nearly 3.4 million square feet of schools and buildings with assets totaling nearly $1 billion.
Our community has said it’s important to protect our investment and property values with schools that are up-to-date and in good working condition.
At Project Parkway, we shared an updated facilities proposal with the following revisions based on community feedback:
- Recondition and repair four existing high school pools. Remove a new district pool from the proposal as it lacks consensus in our community
- Renovate high school locker rooms, accompanying restrooms and training rooms
- Additional investment in ADA projects to continue our efforts toward accessibility for all students, parents and community
Our community priorities
- Keeping students safe, dry and warm in schools that are up-to-date and in good working condition (replace roofs, windows, doors, HVAC systems, security cameras, etc.)
- Keeping students connected to learning with faster, better and more reliable technology infrastructure
- Ensuring our schools are accessible for students with disabilities
- Providing updated, safe and accessible community playgrounds at our elementary schools
- Focus on current and future generations of students (classrooms, restrooms, locker rooms, cafeterias, Early Childhood Center, repairs to pools for safety)
