Facility Planning Update & Metro West Temporary Location

We’d like to provide a brief update regarding district facility planning. We’re currently discussing the long-term usage of several buildings and spaces in our district. These include the Jensen Elementary and Rolling Green Elementary buildings, the softball field, and a district-owned property on the west side of our boundaries.

As a starting place, we are gathering some initial cost estimates and additional information regarding various scenarios that could be considered for those buildings and spaces in order to determine the viability of any given scenario. Once that information is received, we will be inviting the community, and our community partners, to review the scenarios and provide input so that we can make an informed decision that best supports the current and future needs of our students, staff, families, and community. 

While not related to long-term planning, we would like to provide an update regarding a short-term, temporary move. Our Metro West Learning Academy will be temporarily moving into Rolling Green at the start of the 2023–24 school year while the new location for Metro West is being remodeled. Metro West provides a morning session (8:40 a.m. – 11:40 a.m.) and an afternoon session (12:30 p.m. – 3:30 p.m.) for high-school age students. Each session typically has 35 – 40 students on campus at a time. We anticipate Metro West will be moving into their permanent space in the February/March timeframe.
