Facilities Advisory Committee

  • The North Thurston Public Schools Facilities Advisory Committee is comprised of community representatives, students, parents, and staff who develop facility planning recommendations for our growing school district to the Board of Directors.
     
    Meetings are held throughout the year.

    These recommendations assist the district in developing an updated Six-Year Capital Facilities Plan which guides facility initiatives throughout the district based upon a study of current and future needs. These recommendations are informed by a review of the following information:

    • School district enrollment history and projections
    • Present and future educational program needs
    • City/County population data and growth projections
    • Community development information
    • Existing school capacity information
    • Review of school district property available for development
    • Existing school facility needs assessment data
    • Capital funding options and information
    • Input from students, parents, citizens and staff
    • Available Survey/Polling information

    The district values and appreciates the time, effort and input each committee member brings to this important work. Welcoming, well-maintained, and safe schools are vital to helping ensure that all students have a positive learning environment in which they can succeed and thrive.
