Coos Bay School District Facilities Planning

“Providing Excellent Community Schools” 

A Facility Planning Committee was created by the Coos Bay School District #9 Board of Directors to develop and maintain long range plans and advise on matters that affect the Districts Real Property.   It is composed of selected members of the Board of Directors and the Coos Bay School District’s Superintendent, Personnel and Business Director, and the Facilities Manager.  Additionally, the committee may select volunteers from the Coos Bay community.

The committee develops plans and advises on matters that will keep the district’s buildings and grounds maintained to the highest degree of excellence, ensuring they are safe and accessible to our students and the community.

More information on the committee’s responsibilities and authority can be found in the board approved charter:  FACILITIES PLANNING COMMITTEE CHARTER

During the October 7th facilities committee meeting those in attendance agreed that making a recommendation to the school district’s board of directors of whether to build new school buildings or renovate our school buildings could not be made unless we could see and tour a recently built school campus and a recently renovated school campus. It was recommended and briefed to the school board that arrangements needed to be made for a field trip. …read more
