Improving & Maintaining Learning Environments
Facility Master Planning Advisory Committee
The Bettendorf Community School District is working with OPN Architects to develop a long-range facility master plan. OPN Architects is conducting a thorough assessment and analysis of our district’s facilities, systems, and site.
A Facilities Advisory Committee of parents, staff, students, community members, and business owners will be working together to review the findings of the assessment and set priorities that will ultimately shape a facility plan for the district that balances needs and wants with available funding.
Community Learning & Listening Forum - Dec. 12
The committee invited the public to come to take tours of Bettendorf Middle School and attend a series of presentations about the process overview, existing facilities, master planning options, and financing for the facility projects. Participants then submitted their thoughts and additional insights about the committee's work.
Committee's Work & Recommendations
At the December 19, 2022 school board meeting, the committee's work and recommendations were presented to the school board for consideration.
Directors approved a 10-year plan with a phased modernization of the Bettendorf Middle School, and facility improvements at Bettendorf High School, Herbert Hoover Elementary, and Paul Norton Elementary. Directors also directed the district administration to pursue a community vote on a general obligation (GO) bond, as soon as March 2023, to fund the projects at the middle and high schools. The district would use future SAVE (1 cent sales tax) revenue and other financial resources to fund the Herbert Hoover and Paul Norton elementary projects. Follow the work on the Facilities GO Bond
