Strategic Planning Spotlight- Facilities
The Facilities Sub-Committee has identified three primary goals:
- updating HVAC ventilation throughout MCS;
- extensive building renovations to add classroom space to accommodate the large community interest in Montessori education for our youngest friends; and
- renovating existing toileting spaces.
These goals are each important for the health, safety, and development of our students, staff, and administration, and bring unique challenges and considerations. Fortunately, the nature of these projects is such that each could be pursued individually and potentially simultaneously, depending on cost and impact to operation of the school. The Facilities Sub-Committee sought bids from multiple HVAC companies, and contracted to receive an engineering assessment from a local engineering firm that was tasked to evaluate the scope of potential work, cost, and potential timeline for each project. Through this engineering assessment, due to be completed in the next few weeks, the Facilities Sub-Committee hopes to receive clarity about what projects are feasible on a short- and long-term basis, and what could be done together. Once this assessment is complete, it will be reviewed by the larger Strategic Planning Committee.
