Facilities Planning Process Moves to Options Phase
On January 18, approximately 50 community members, staff members, parents, and students met as part of the "options phase" of the district's long-range facilities planning process. The responsibility of the Options Committee will be to assist in the development of options to address the facility challenges identified by the Criteria Committees. The Options Committee is not a design committee; design activities will take place in the future.
The facilities planning process was undertaken by Roseville Area Schools with a goal of identifying ideas on how to best use the district's facilities to meet the needs of students, staff, and the communities we serve. Wold Architects was hired by the district to conduct a thorough review of the mechanical and structural components of the district’s buildings including an analysis of how they are being used. Wold is guiding the district through the process of gathering feedback from staff, students, and the community. This process will lead to a collective vision for the future.
Upon completion of the first phase of the district’s facilities review process, Roseville Area Schools hosted a public meeting to present the findings of the three Criteria Committees as well as outline the next steps. Vaughn Dierks, a partner in Wold Architects and Engineers, presented summary information from each of the three Criteria Committees — Physical Criteria, Educational Criteria, and Activities & Community Criteria. (To view the presentation, click here.) In addition, four community members who participated on the criteria committees had an opportunity to speak to attendees before Dierks, Superintendent Aldo Sicoli, and Director of Business Services Shari Thompson answered questions from attendees.
