The Last Bond Election Community Meeting

The meeting will be in portable #8 on Tuesday, March 31 at 7:00 pm. All are invited to learn about the proposed facility improvements, and have questions answered by superintendent, Rick Jones.


Community Shapes Construction Bond

When our districts 16-member Citizens Facilities Review Committee recommended a facilities improvement plan to the school board in November of 2014, it was based on input from our staff, parents and community members who accepted our invitation to engage in a virtual conversation about using school facilities using the district’s “Thought Exchange” process. You can view the “Thought Exchange” conversation here.

As a result of this input, the Facilities Committee revised original planning options, selecting Scenario A as the plan that most met the priorities of the community. The plan adds a new high school wing, a new middle school wing, including a middle school gym and locker rooms, modernizes the existing high school, adds two classrooms to the elementary school, and removes remaining asbestos from the elementary and high school building. Read the Executive Summary of the committee’s 14 months of work, as presented to the school board.

The preliminary design work includes the creation of a new site plan that includes increased parking, separate bus lane and student/parent pick up/drop off areas, separate entrance for middle school and high school students, and an emergency fire lane around the secondary campus and athletic fields. See the detailed site plan. (2 MB PDF)

Because of past, and projected growth in the future, the school district qualifies for a substantial state match of $9,600,000 to offset the cost of construction. The bond required to complete the construction project is $18,000,000. Read a detailed project cost analysis here.

I am very grateful for the dedication and commitment of time given to this planning process by the volunteers of our Citizens Facilities Review Committee. I believe that the committee’s plan reflects the priorities of our school board, staff, parents and community for a safe, learning environment that meets the long-term facilities needs of the Napavine School District. This is because we engaged our community, listened to your input, and made facility recommendations based on that input. Watch a video regarding your input here.

Our School Board has reviewed the recommendations of the Facilities Committee and approved running a bond in April. If it is approved by the voters, construction will begin in Spring 2016.

For more details regarding the work of the committee, and the final recommendations to our school board, please contact me at 360-262-3303, or e-mail me at rjones@napa.k12.wa.us

A Strategic Plan for Napavine Schools

The Napavine School District is committed to a strong partnership with our stakeholders, as we work together for the continuous improvement of our schools. In the past year we have engaged our staff, parents and community in two online conversations regarding our district and facilities. The results of these conversations have directly affected the decisions we have made, and the future direction of our school district. Specifically, we have learned about our districts’ strengths and challenges for improvement.

I invite you to look at more specific details of our results to learn more about the overall facilities improvement process, as well as the wealth of information regarding our strengths and challenges.


We will continue to seek the advise of our stakeholders in order to make the best decisions for our students. A third conversation is planned for Spring of 2015 as we continue to develop a long-range Strategic Plan. The specific dates for the conversation will be determined by March 20th, so please visit our website again at that time.

United Way of Lewis County provides volunteer opportunities for staff, student, parents and community members who are seeking ways to make a difference in our community. Check out the Volunteer Center of Lewis County at: www.volunteerlewis.org

 

Smarter Balanced Assessments
