The foundation of the Duneland School Corporation’s (DSC) capital planning efforts are the School Board’s five adopted planning goals.
- Goal 1: Capital Improvement Funding
- Goal 2: Education Services Planning and School Facilities Capacity
- Goal 3: Safety and Security
- Goal 4: Technology
- Goal 5: Asset Preservation
These goals are fundamental components of the Capital Improvement Plan (CIP) as they help establish the basis upon which the CIP is developed. The goals provide direction about how future projects are to be assessed; identify what data needs to be evaluated; and set priorities for future planning efforts and projects. By helping define the DSC’s capital planning directives and priorities, these goals give staff guidance about how to plan and budget for future capital improvement projects. Each project considered for capital funding in the CIP, is evaluated based upon whether it addresses or fulfills the School Board’s adopted strategic plan and capital planning goals. To help DSC prioritize capital improvement priorities, a Facility Assessment was completed in October 2019. Superintendent of Schools, Dr. Chip Pettit, presented at the February 1, 2021 DSC Board Meeting a summary of needs and objectives. Dr. Pettit then presented solutions to the proposed needs and objectives at the March 1, 2021 DSC Board Meeting. Those presentations are linked below.
