The Master Planning process is well underway in the West
Geauga Local School District. Throughout the fall, the District held Facility
Planning Committee Meetings and two large Community Meetings to engage
residents in discussions and to tabulate their thoughts related to present and
future facility needs of the district.
The results and corresponding recommendations were
originally planned as a presentation by BSHM Architects, the firm that
facilitated the Master Planning process, to the West Geauga Board of Education
this month. That presentation has been delayed until the Board considers more
fully the possible consolidation via Territory Transfer of the Newbury Local
School District with either West Geauga or Berkshire Local Schools. Such
consolidation would affect both the square footage of any potential
construction as well as available funding.
At this time, the Master Plan has been presented to the West Geauga Board of Education by representatives of the Facility Planning Committee. It is awaiting further board action.
