The capacity study for Campbell County School District #1 was completed on March 25, 2013. During the study, MOA Architecture and the district considered several possible scenarios to address capacity issues in the district. Of the five scenarios selected for final consideration, MOA Architecture recommended Scenario #2 as the most cost effective remedy. Scenario #2 was described by MOA Architecture as: Move 9th grade into the high school system; South Campus is 9-10; North Campus is 11-12; Renovate junior high schools to meet classroom capacity requirements; Build new K-6 elementary schools.
Scenario #2 addresses the junior high capacity issue through 2020 and effectively addresses the growing needs of our elementary school population. The scenario maintains the current split campus system and a single high school in the district, but provides the district with the flexibility to convert to two independent high schools when desirable and feasible for the district. It is important that the South Campus renovation and additional square footage being recommended is utilized in such a manner as to prepare the district for two independent high schools in the future.
During the March 26, 2013 Board Meeting, the CCSD Board of Trustees voted to concur with the findings of MOA Architecture that Scenario #2 is the most cost effective remedy. We look forward to continuing the process of addressing capacity issues in our district.
