District 50 Facilities Planning

With a growing student population and school facilities reaching capacity, Harvard District 50 held building open houses in early November of 2019 to discuss the imminent needs of the community.

The district recorded the open house discussion at Harvard High School.

Each open house was an hour with a thirty-minute tour followed by a thirty-minute discussion. Alison Andrews and John Maurer from Wold Architects and Engineers attended the open houses to gather feedback from community members.

The district performed a Kasarda study and a facility utilization and capacity study to gauge population growth and the capabilities of our buildings. Both documents are available below.

Andrews and Maurer will present a facilities plan at the Board of Education’s public meeting on Wednesday, December 18, at 7 p.m. at the Central Office.

Superintendent Dr. Corey Tafoya said that the board has been examining facilities closely over the last year. 

“We know enrollment is growing, and we must determine how to allocate space and design for 21st-century learning for our students,” Tafoya said.
