Facility Planning

As described within the 2018-22 Strategic Plan, District 58 is developing a focused and long-term facility improvement plan that ensures safe, modernized and effective learning environments for all students. The plan will also consider: safety/security; air conditioning; sixth-through-eighth grade middle schools; class size/enrollment projections; and District facility use. View the below resources to learn more about facility planning in District 58.


What’s New

District 58 hosted three facility planning engagement sessions (2 community, 1 staff) in May 2019. View the presentation.

The District’s Facility Planning Council and the Instructional Model Review Council were formed this school year through the District’s Strategic Plan. During the meetings, the Councils reviewed the District’s facility planning guiding principles, the feasibility of grade 6-8 middle schools and an overview of facility work needed in our elementary schools. Throughout the District’s Master Facility Plan development process, there will be additional opportunities for community engagement and feedback provided.
