Core Team Meetings

5 Key Take-Aways
Sept. 24, 2019



  • The goal of this Educational Master Facility Plan (EMFP) process is to be as transparent as possible with the community.
  • The community is invited to attend the ‘Global Perspectives’  open house on Thursday, September 26th.  There will be more community meetings in the future.
  • There are many stakeholders with a wide variety of experiences on the Core Team and this team is responsible for helping the District shape the EMFP.
  • This planning process will take 12-16 months to complete from beginning to the final recommendation to the Board of Education.
  • When it comes down to it…our mission is all about the kids!

  • We toured Batavia High School.  It hasn’t changed much since the 1980s and needs much more flexibility based on how students learn today.
  • The High School’s physical space is limiting what the staff, teachers, and students can do; but they are being innovative with what they have.
  • We want to ensure there is enough program space so that students who want to participate in programs are able to do so.
  • We are doing activities to keep all stakeholders in mind; including their feelings and how a successful master plan might look to them in the future.
  • We considered the entire district when participating in a SCOC (Strengths, Challenges, Opportunities, Concerns) Analysis.

  • We discussed how to better communicate internally with teachers and externally with the community and parents.
  • This was the first time we discussed things not to touch (or change) in the Educational Master Facility Plan (EMFP).
  • We had alignment on large themes that need to be addressed as part of the EMFP.
  • We learned how we got to this point, so we can make better decisions.
  • We learned that, as a whole, we want to stay true to our community identity as we move our schools toward future equity.
