Through significant citizen participation in the strategic planning process, it was determined that Green residents want school buildings that better meet the needs of both our students and community. Safety, efficiency, fiscal responsibility and appropriate classroom space were among the most prevalent needs identified. In short, Green residents want school buildings that reflect our great school district and community.
According to an evaluation conducted by the Ohio Facilities Construction Commission (OFCC), three of Green Local’s five school buildings are in need of expensive repairs that are not financially viable. Although the district has done all it can to maintain these properties, it is no longer cost effective to do so.
In order to address these critical needs, a master facilities plan was developed that will consolidate our district from five to four school buildings. Our three oldest buildings will be demolished and replaced by the construction of two new buildings and one addition. Updates will also be made to the bus garage. This plan will reduce operational costs, transportation routes, as well as the number of building transitions in a student’s academic career.
