      THE MASTER FACILITIES PLAN      

Master Facilities Plan
In 2015, we began developing a strategic plan to address the long-range facility needs and vision of our district. We engaged parents, community members and school leaders, as well as outside experts, to assess our current facilities and identify needs to assure our district is well prepared for the future.

This Master Facilities Committee developed an understanding of current and projected student enrollment and studied environments that better support current and evolving practices in education for our students.

In 2017, we developed a draft Master Facilities Plan to address overcrowding and the need to update our facilities.  We worked with our Master Facility Planning Committee to develop this proposed plan to present to the community for input.  

The district is firmly committed to transparency and engagement with the Gahanna community. Families and community members hosted “coffee discussions” throughout our school district to discuss the draft of this plan and our future facility needs. The involvement and feedback were tremendously helpful, and changes were made to the draft plan based on the feedback we received. 

The plan addresses critical issues facing our district, including

  1. Outdated buildings
  2. Over capacity throughout the district
  3. The need for an expanded or new high school 

It specifically considers the growth occurring in Jefferson Township, where 206 homes and a 72-unit residential/extended stay hotel are slated to be built in the near future.   

A final draft of the Master Facilities Plan, which outlines two distinct phases, was presented to the Board of Education on January 11th, 2018 and approved.
