In January 2017 the Lanesboro Schools Finance, Facilities, and Long-Range Planning (FFLP) Committee started a journey to review our current facilities in relation to our new Strategic Plan. The four goals of that Strategic Plan include regional academic leadership, enhanced early childhood programs, community engagement and partnerships, and a robust communication plan. What follows is representative of the Committee’s dedication to these goals.
After months of research, discussions, and meetings with administration, staff, and community members, the Board made the decision to interview and hire an architectural firm to help us put our vision into a tangible product. From January through May 2018 the concept plan that you will see on these pages was developed with input from stakeholders across the community. The three primary areas targeted in the planning were:
1) Safety and Security
2) 21st Century Learning Environment
3) The Arts, Physical Activity, and Athletics
Please see the links for more information regarding the project. By clicking on the "Concept Plan" link you will find the slide presentation that outlines the scope of the project as well as a more detailed conceptual floorplan. As time moves towards November 6th, this page will be updated with new information so please check back again.
The document below is the Review and Comment from the Minnesota Department of Education. The project was given a positive review from the Education Commissioner, allowing us to move forward to a November ballot issue.
