Imagine OPRF Final Recommendations
On Nov. 15, 2018, the Imagine OPRF Work Group made its recommendations to the Board for a long-term facilities master plan; the Board accepted those recommendations. Note that accepting the plan is different from approving the plan. By accepting the long-term facilities master plan, the Board accepted the identified facility needs. It did not, however, make any financial commitment.
Now that it has been accepted, the facilities master plan belongs to the Board of Education, which has the latitude to decide what, if any, portion of the plan to implement and when, along with how to fund that portion of work. The Board plans to discuss these topics at its Dec. 11, 2018, Committee of the Whole meeting and its Dec. 20, 2018, regular meeting, both of which are open to the public.
It's important to note that a master plan is not a construction project, where design and financing of every portion is done at the start. Instead, a master plan is a living document that should be reviewed and modified every few years as the impact of early projects is assessed, school needs change, and funding becomes available.
