LS R-7 School District seeking volunteers to assist with planning for future school facilities

LS R-7 School District seeking volunteers to assist with planning for future school facilities

The Lee’s Summit R-7 School District is seeking volunteers to help district officials update the Comprehensive Facility Master Plan.  The CFMP team will plan for:

  • renovations at existing facilities
  • new school facilities
  • enrollment trends impacting our schools

Specifically, the goal of this team is to address the Board of Education’s priority number 2: Ensure equitable access to 21st century learning environments by engaging stakeholders in a process to update the district’s Comprehensive Facility Master Plan to meet the instructional and programming needs of all pre-K-12 students.  If the number of volunteers for this team exceeds the number of team members allotted, Lee’s Summit R-7 staff members will determine a selection process that provides for a broad base of representation.

The group will begin meeting during the current school year, with the team’s work possibly continuing into future school years. Volunteers will spend a significant amount of time within team meetings and researching trends in educational facility design. The group will meet primarily in the evenings, however, there may be a need for occasional meetings during the regular work day.  If the number of volunteers for this team exceeds the number of team members allotted, Lee’s Summit R-7 staff members will determine a selection process that provides for a broad base of representation.

To express interest in volunteering for this team, please visit https://www.surveymonkey.com/r/9XHT5BW.
