Two of Ripon’s school buildings are in need of significant maintenance and improvements; however, overall, the school district’s four main buildings are in good shape.
That was the message from a firm that’s been conducting a facilities study.
More detail is expected to be shared during the district’s third and final “community engagement session” Thursday, Nov. 14 at 6:30 p.m. in Ripon High School room 167.
This will include a review of the “Condition and Capacity of Schools Report” the CG Schmidt/Plunkett Raysich team has been doing for the district, as well as a comparison of Ripon schools to model schools.
“We have had great participation from the community in the last two engagement sessions,” board President David Scott said. “As we indicated from the beginning of the master planning process, the options must reflect the priorities of our community and taxpayers. Based on a review of this recent assessment and analysis, we will continue to move forward to define an approach to addressing our district-wide facility needs over the coming years.”
Monday, Ripon Area School Board members heard a preliminary presentation from Steve Kieckhafer of Plunkett Raysich Architects.
